Oregon Team joins the GT Open with two Lamborghini

16.12.2021

Oregon Team has made official its debut in the International GT Open in 2022. The well-known Italian squad will enter two Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 in the iconic multi-colour livery that is a landmark of the squad based in Cremosano (Lombardy) and led by Jerry Canevisio and Piergiorgio Testa.

Oregon will be the reference team of the Bull in the series, taking the baton from VSR and inheriting race numbers 63 and 19. The objective is to keep the successful form of Lamborghini, whose cars have conquered the GT Open title four times in the last six years.

Team Oregon was formed in 1987 by a group of friends embarking in amateur autocross racing with a Citroën 2CV. Quite rapidly, it evolved towards a professional and successful organization but never lost the “friendly spirit” for which it is still known. After spans with single-seaters and touring cars, Oregon has had a lot of success in Renault mono-brand trophies, clinching one Clio EuroCup, two EuroCup Mégane and one RS01 Trophy titles, before entering ELMS LMP3 and the Lambo SuperTrofeo Europe, which it won in 2021 (picture).  

The drivers who achieved that success, Leonardo Pulcini and Kevin Gilardoni, have been already confirmed in the line-up for the 2022 GT Open. The 23-year Italian, a former Euroformula Open champion and GP3 racer, will be in car #63, while the 29-year-old Swiss, who has also shone in rallying, will be at the wheel of car #19. Their respective team mates will be announced in due course.

Team Principal Jerry Canevisio commented: “We are delighted to join the International GT Open, which represents a huge step forward for us, as we are debuting in GT3 racing and representing Lamborghini Squadra Corse, whom we thank for the support and the trust. We come to fight for victory and have the challenging task to do as well as the Lambo teams that have preceded us. The GT Open is also known for its friendly atmosphere and this is key to us that have as a philosophy to bring a smile wherever we race.”
