MARCO Mapelli

Ciao LamboFans, thanks for visiting these pages. I’m Marco Mapelli and I’m proudly part of Lamborghini family. It’s an honour for me to became an ambassador for such an iconic brand.

As my colleagues I’m racing worldwide in the main Gt Championships and races, behind the wheel of the Lamborghini Huracán GT3. We all work together on the development of the car, to be on top of the game. I’m also working with the Research and Development department with road version cars, exactly those beasts you see every day on the road. 

This is firstly my passion, then my job. I love to spend hours at racetrack to get the maximum out of my self, my team and the car to fight for the win every weekend. There’s not much free time left but I really love my triathlon races and feel the pain, this help me to keep concentration and focus even on tough situation. 
I like summer, sea and spend relaxing time with my family. 

My favourite track? Nordschleife of course...

See you all the racetracks…
