Dörr Motorsport achieves top result in 24-hour race with Giti tires

Dörr Motorsport finished second in the SP8 class – 40th overall – in the ADAC Zurich 24-Hour Race at the Nürburgring in Germany.

The team’s Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo was equipped with bespoke Giti Tire rubber, which was developed in close cooperation between the two companies.

During the race, the car held pole position in its class after qualifying but had its chance of winning snatched away by a broken drive shaft with just two hours of the race remaining.

“We had never expected a pole position but we are extremely happy about this successful kick-off,” commented Robin Dörr, team manager of Dörr Motorsport.

Tobias Stöckmann, motorsport director Europe at Giti Tire, added, “It is clear to us that our focus lays on the transfer of technology from the racetrack to the street, and I am very proud that we were able to show the performance of our tires here at the Nürburgring.”

“We have collected lots of experience as well as data during the race, which will now be used for further development to ensure the continuously increasing performance and safety of our tires.”
