Lamborghini To Be At Le Mans Alongside Aston Martin In 2021?

The Italian brand confirmed they were considering an entry in the 2021 Le Mans 24h race.

A couple of months ago, Aston Martin said they were entering a pair of Valkyries for the 2020/2021 FIA World Endurance Championship season. When those Aston Martin will get to the 2021 Le Mans 24h race it will mark the 100-year anniversary of them racing there for the first time.

Now, Lamborghini may want to challenge those Aston Martin on the track because they’re thinking about a 2021 Le Mans entry, according to British magazine Autocar.

Indeed, the magazine met with Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, during this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed where he confirmed they were studying the idea.

“There are discussions and we are looking to understand the regulations to see if it is of interest,” said Domenicali. “There is nothing to say until the evaluation is finished, and at that point the answer could be yes or no. For now, it is possible.”

He adds “we don’t have the budget to invest in a totally new project, but the SC18 shows that we have a base for what could be an interesting approach. The car shows that we have internal capabilities for such a project.”

In June, the Automobile Club de l’Ouest confirmed all the hypercar regulations details for the upcoming 2020/2021 season. The regulation states that “developing a racing machine based on a road-going hypercar (a minimum of 20 road models must be produced over a two-year period).”

Toyota also jumped in the WEC hypercar bandwagon as they confirmed they will be racing in a hybrid prototype based on the Toyota GR Super Sport that was unveiled at the 2018 Tokyo Motor Show.
