Bonaldi Motorsport is taking up a new challenge in the competitive German championship thanks to two Lamborghini Huracàn GT3 and the direct support of the headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
After a long winter dedicated to accurate preparation and important innovation, first among everything the opening of the new Motorsport Workshop, the pure competition is going to start in Bonaldi Motorsport Department.

With nine big manufacturers and drivers coming also from Formula One, the prestigious German championship has reached its tenth edition and it represents a extremely high level challenge. Bonaldi Motorsport will benefit from the direct support of Lamborghini and will deploy two top quality crews: the young Finnish Patrick Kujala and the expert Serbian Milos Pavlovic are driving on the first car. These two drivers increased their team prestige by winning the two last seasons of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo; Emanuele Zonzini from San Marino and Florian Spengler from Germany will drive the second Huracan. Kujala and Zonzini will compete also in the Junior Classification, reserved for “silver” under 25 drivers.
