TR3 Performance Steps up to Pro class at Sebring

1 October 2021

SEBRING, FL. – TR3 Performance steps up to the Pro class for the first time this season as the Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS returns to historic Sebring International Raceway for the final doubleheader weekend of the campaign.

TR3 Performance will field the No. 9 Lamborghini Huracon GT3 with regular driver Giacomo Altoe joined by Danish Lamborghini factory driver Dennis Lind in SRO’s first visit to the converted military airport since 2009.

“We’re happy to be back in the pro class for the first time since 2018 with Ferrari,” said Gregory Romenelli. “We had a pretty successful run and both 2017 and 2018 being the first time running in the pro category. We are here this weekend at our home track, ready to prove what we are capable of with a Lamborghini.”

Altoe is currently seventh in the GT World Challenge America Pro-Am standings, despite missing three races. His best finish is second at Road America, with additional podiums at Circuit of The Americas and Watkins Glen International.

“I’m really excited to be racing in Sebring,” said Altoe. “It will be my first time at that track, and first time this season with TR3 in a Pro car with Dennis Lind. I know him very well since 2018. He’s a real professional and fast driver, so I’m really looking forward to this weekend. We will try to take the maximum out of it, and to do a great race in the home of TR3 Racing.”

Lind was both the World and European Champion of Lamborghini Super Trofeo in 2016.

“I’ve just arrived in America, and it’s going to be cool driving for TR3 Racing,” Lind said. “It’s going to be a first, racing GT3s stateside, but I’m very confident after meeting the team and also knowing my teammate for the weekend that it will be a success. I’m super excited for it; hopefully, we can bring back some big medals.”

Lind is the nephew of Jan Magnussen and cousin of Kevin Magnussen, former Formula One drivers who now compete in IMSA.
 
“Sebring has a good history for Lamborghini itself,” Lind said. “It has many good performances there, and I’m sure this weekend will be no exception.”

The Sebring event opens with practice on Friday at 9:50 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. (all times ET). Saturday opens with qualifying at 8:50 a.m., followed by the opening 90-minute race at 1:15 p.m. Sunday’s final race is set to start at 1:15 p.m.
