Orange1 FFF Racing confirms Endurance Cup title defence with Lamborghini

Orange1 FFF Racing by ACM has confirmed plans to defend its Endurance Cup title in 2020, naming an unchanged line-up in its lead Lamborghini Huracan. 

Andrea Caldarelli and Marco Mapelli clinched the overall Endurance title last term to complete an unprecedented clean sweep of top-tier drivers' championships. They were joined at four of the five long-distances rounds by Dennis Lind, who was forced to miss the Barcelona finale through illness. 

All three will return this year to pilot the #63 machine at the five Endurance Cup events, including the Total 24 Hours of Spa. Their GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS programme will run alongside the squad's efforts in Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli. 

FFF will also launch Silver Cup and Pro-Am bids at Endurance rounds this term. The young Silver crew will be anchored by Taylor Proto, who remains on board from 2019. 

He will be joined by two series newcomers in Frenchman Florian Latorre and Belgian racer Baptiste Moulin. Both come with recent experience in Porsche machinery, with Latorre having competed in the top-tier Supercup and Moulin switching from Carrera Cup France. 

The team's Pro-Am line-up will see Phil Keen and Hiroshi Hamaguchi continue their partnership from 2019. The Anglo-Japanese pairing clinched their class championship in the Sprint Cup last term, while Hamaguchi also took GT Cup gold at the FIA Motorsport Games. They will look to add a class Endurance title at the wheel of their #19 Huracan this season. 

Orange1 FFF Racing by ACM will be present for next week's GT World Challenge Europe test days at Circuit Paul Ricard (12-13 March). The season-opening race takes the Italian squad to home turf, with Monza kicking off the 2020 campaign on 17-19 April.
