Wild elephant™ Racing has started its 2020 Season with Lamborghini Super Trofeo (LST)
Boca Raton, Florida (Tuesday, August 11, 2020) – Wild elephant™ Racing started its 2020 Lamborghini Super Trofeo (LST) season strong, as the team’s new co-driver, Leo Lamelas finished the two race weekend at Road America with a third place position in the final event. Co-driver Ron Atapattu was forced sit out this first race weekend as he recovers from a recent back surgery related to a crash in Barcelona several years ago and exacerbated by his current fitness and running regimens.
‘Of course, I’m disappointed in not driving our first race.”, stated Atapattu, “But I expect to be back in the seat in a short period of time. In the meantime, I’m very proud of Leo and happy to share the #24 Wild elephant™ Lamborghini with him this season. Just like last year’s series with co-driver Patrick Liddy, I believe that Leo brings a complimentary set of skills to the team that will help propel us to a strong finish in every race.”
While the Lamborghini GT3 Evo is a new experience for the young Brazilian driver, Leo maintains an impressive background in professional racing, having finished third in last year’s IMSA LMP Championship. “It’s a new world completely for me.”, said Leo, The car is new for me. Road America was one of just two tracks in this series that I have not been to, so I think this is one step ahead for me to be a little more comfortable. I look forward to when Ron rejoins the team and expect that we will run strong in Pro-Am this season.”
