"It's the result of a long term endeavour. It's been more than a year that we are talking with Leipert and Lamborghini. As from our first contacts, I liked their passion for racing and the way the factory is involved in the Super Trofeo. Then, when the occasion to step onto for a complete season with high sporting ambitions showed off, I took the ball on the hop".
It's thus with the Defending Champions team that Sarah will take part to the 6 European races of the series, including the world final in Valencia, beginning of December!
"For a few years, I've been seizing each opportunity to get on track, show what I got and also … keep the contact with the race. It's thanks to all these experiences, like the Spa 24h in 2012 and 2013, the World Series on the Renault RS01 in 2015, the few 'one-shots' in 24h Series, etc. that I get that seat in the Super Trofeo. And at the same time, for the first time in my career, I have a complete program in a famous and highly followed international championship".
It's alongside a fast and experienced team-mate that Sarah will compete for what will certainly be her biggest challenge ever:Ben Gersekowski, 2014 Formula 3 Australian vice-champion, keen to tackle the European GT championships.
"For a few weeks, I'm living in a kind of waking dream, even if I know the biggest part of the job is to come. Ben and I will not be there for playing bit parts. We both want to fight for the championship and we know that the team Liepert will provide us a car able to race for the win. Moreover, it's so important for me to honour the Lamborghini's blazon, which means so much for all the racing fans around the world! I will then have to work very hard to quickly get the best pace and make the most of the 620 horse power of the Huracán!"
For sure, a very promising season for Sarah, Ben and the team Leipert Motorsport!
An official presentation of Sarah's program will take place on the 1st of March at the very trendy Club des V in Brussels. Save the date!
