Professional racing driver Dan Wells has been named as Team Principal of the first ever Automobili Lamborghini Esports team, managing one of the most iconic real-world names to enter this arena.
The Lamborghini team consists of sim drivers Jordan Sherratt, Gianfranco Giglioli and Giorgio Simonini and this threesome have already achieved excellent results in the GT World Challenge Esports Sprint Series Europe and Intercontinental GT Challenge Esports Endurance Championships.
Dan Wells will manage coaching, communication and administrators, also liaising with manufacturers, engineers and backroom staff in circuit preparation and driver support. “We want to see Lamborghini on the top step of the virtual world and as successful as they have been in the real world,” says Wells. “Esports is only going to grow and get more professional in the coming years, and I think we’re here to capitalise at the right time.”
As a real-world driver, Wells and teammate Oscar Lee currently lead the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe Championship Pro-Am Cup with Rexal FFF Racing Group, having finished second in the World Finals with a different team last November.
