Saravia-Menchaca, a second stellar pair for Imperiale Racing


Imperiale Racing today confirmed its second high-level Pro pair for the 2020 International GT Open. The Italian team will entrust one of its Lamborghini Huracán Evo to a duo of fast drivers from Central America, Guatemala’s Andrés Saravia and Mexico’s Diego Menchaca (right and left, respectively, in the picture). They join the already confirmed Giovanni Venturini-Leonardo Pulcini.

Saravia and Menchaca have in common to have been competing in the Euroformula in the past.

Andrés ‘Lush’ Saravia (29) switched to GT cars in 2017 and has been a top contender in the GT Open in the last two years, clinching 6 wins and 15 podium finishes. In the last two season he raced for Teo Martín Motorsport, finishing a runner-up in the overall standings in 2018 and fourth in 2019. He will be driving the Lamborghini Huracán for the first time.

He commented: “I am really excited to get the opportunity to drive for Imperiale Racing, a team with an excellent racing history. We will give everything we can in order to achieve the desired results alongside Imperiale and my teammate Diego, whom I know since our Formula 3 days.”

Diego Menchaca (26) debuted in GT last year, already at the wheel of a Lamborghini, after racing in the World Series V8 and GP3 following his years in the Euroformula.

He commented: “I’m super happy and grateful to continue my relationship with Lamborghini Squadra Corse, and especially doing it with one of their best teams as Imperiale in the GT Open. I want to thank Giorgio Sanna, Raffaele Giammaria, Imperiale and all my backers for making this happen. Of course, our objective will be to fight for the championship!”
