Orange1 FFF Racing Team by ACM has confirmed the driver lineup for its full-season Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli program with Lamborghini.

Reigning GT World Challenge Europe champions Andrea Caldarelli and Marco Mapelli will be joined by fellow factory driver Dennis Lind for the entire five-round championship, which kicks off with the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour next month.

The team has opted to enter only a single Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo for the full season.

It will mark Lamborghini’s first entry as an official manufacturer in SRO Motorsports Group’s globe-trotting series.

As previously revealed by Sportscar365, the Italian manufacturer will join no fewer than seven other existing GT3 brands in the series.

The Caldarelli-led squad, which made its European debut in 2019, is coming off a dominant season in SRO competition, having become the first team in to win all three European GT3 titles in the same year.

“After the 2019 season, we are committed to take up another important challenge for this year,” said team owner  Fu Songyang. “Together with our partners Lamborghini Squadra Corse and ORANGE1, the next step for our team is the biggest we could aim at, the Intercontinental GT Challenge.

“In a certain way, we already won in Asia in 2018 and Europe in 2019, so 2020 could be the right opportunity to take everything under the same name.

“Honestly, I think the challenge is going to be quite serious, as the level of the competition is very high, and we are going to represent one of the most prestigious manufacturers.

“Choosing Andrea, Dennis and Marco was a natural option and the continuation of the project started last year. They definitely are the best drivers we could have for this new venture.”

FFF is expected to maintain its presence in GT World Challenge Europe next year as well, although has yet to announce details of the program.
