Bartholomew signs with Imperiale Racing for Italian GT3 Endurance Championship
Imperiale Racing confirms its entry into the 2023 Italian GT Endurance Championship with a second Lamborghini Huracàn GT3 Evo and announces the signing of Jack Bartholomew who will form part of the 3-man Pro/Am crew.
24-year-old Bartholomew who is from Lewes, East Sussex has had a long association with Lamborghini having raced with the brand since 2017 in Europe, Asia and the Middle East and currently works as an instructor for the brand all over the world. Jack will partner Paraguayan Miguel Garcia and another driver to be announced in the coming weeks.
In 2017 Jack raced to 3rd place overall in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Series in both Asia & Middle East Championships. In 2018 Jack became Champion of the Middle East and Vice Champion of Asia. In 2019 Jack was 3rd in the European Super Trofeo Championship.
Last year Jack raced in the Porsche Carrera Cup Championship in the UK but his season was interrupted after being seriously injured in a training accident causing him to miss a number of races whilst he recovered.
Imperiale Racing has worked hard to devise a double program in the endurance GT championship, and the goal is to confirm their position as one of the top teams in the series.
I’m really happy to be back with Lamborghini after 3 years as I’ve spent much of my career with this fantastic brand. I’m really looking forward to getting started in my first season in a GT3 car with Imperiale Racing in the Italian GT championship. It’s also exciting to have new team mates to work with.
Finally, preparations are underway, and I can’t wait to for Round 1 in Pergusia in May. I want to thank Lamborghini, my partners Yesss Electrical and Ecosphere and Imperiale Racing for this opportunity.
The first round of the championship takes place at Pergusa, Sicily on May 20-21 with further races in Mugello, Monza and Vallelunga
