At Le Castellet: Maserati GT2 and its first racing appearance / GT2 European Series

Debut in the European GT2 Series at Le Castellet: the new Maserati GT2 celebrates its racing debut. LP Racing uses the car for Leonardo Gorini and team owner Luca Pirri.

Leonardo Gorini and Luca Pirri will team up in the Pro-Am partnership to give the model his debut at the season finale at Le Castellet in the No. 12.

The debut of the Maserati GT2 in racing form will mark Trident’s official return to GT racing. The Maserati GT2 is based on the MC20 supercar and builds on the legacy of the MC12. Its heart is a 3 liter Nettuno V6 engine with twin combustion technology and double turbocharging.

As one of the nine high-profile teams competing in the third season of the Fanatec GT2 European Series, LP Racing has been entrusted with the delivery of the first Maserati GT2, with Gorini and team principal Pirri taking on the driving duties.

“I am very pleased to announce that LP Racing will present the new Maserati GT2 at Circuit Paul Ricard,” said LP Racing owner Pirri. “We followed the project and development from the beginning and immediately decided to be part of Maserati’s return to GT racing.”

“As a driver, I will have the honor of driving alongside Leonardo Gorini, who is a friend and an amazing driver with great potential. Until this last round of the Fanatec GT2 European Series, he was fighting for the title in the 2023 Am class.

«The YCOM company, authorized by Maserati to develop the GT2, has used all its motorsport knowledge to create a product that has no rival in this GT2 class. Having driven the Maserati MC12 in 2006, I am delighted to be able to support this great comeback as team boss and driver.”

“We made the first changes last week and the car has incredible potential, but what impressed us most was the ease of use. We believe the Maserati GT2 will enjoy great success with a wide range of drivers.”

Leonardo Gorini added: «Luca and I are very happy to start this new journey with the Maserati GT2. We have completed two days of testing where the car showed its full potential. We can’t wait and are sure to see how the car performs in the Fanatec GT2 European Series final next weekend. Congratulations to Maserati Corse for the great job they did with the car; it runs and looks amazing! Now it’s up to us to do the car justice!”
