Alberto Di Folco will take part in the GT World Challenge Europe next year. The Roman driver will take on this commitment with a top-ranked team like Boutsen VDS, born from the union between Boutsen and Di Folco's partner Marc VDS - ready to return to GT, which will line up the Audi R8 LMS Evo II.
 


For Di Folco, this opens a new chapter where he will be the team's official driver in a project linked to the cars of the Four Rings brand, while leaving the door to Lamborghini wide open. With this latter, he has so far followed an extraordinary path that has led him to become a GT3 Junior driver for Sant'Agata Bolognese and to collect numerous national and international successes.
 


It was precisely with Lamborghini this year that Di Folco fought for the title in the Italian Gran Turismo Sprint Championship untill the very last round, claiming most of the poles (three in total) and also three victories with the Imperiale Racing team.
 


"I am honored to have been given the opportunity to race with Marc VDS during next season. They won the 24 Hours of Spa in the past and have a team in Moto2. I'm honored that they chose me as the team's official driver for rejoining the world of GT competitions," Di Folco explained.


"It was a unique opportunity to seize. I know the history of this team and the value of the people who will surround me. That is why I am convinced that I can aim high right from the begoinning. On the other hand, not only do I thank Lamborghini, but I can say without a doubt that I will remain linked to the Sant'Agata Bolognese manufacturer, perhaps even for 2024, asI already have many beautiful projects that I hope I will be able to realize.



And a special thanks go to Enzo Gagliardi, Lamborghini Genève and all my sponsors, who have supported me from the start and believed so much in my potential.
 



Di Folco will face the 2023 season with maximum commitment. A commitment which, however, may not be the only one for the Roman driver.
