Former IndyCar racer and GP2 runner-up Luca Filippi will make his debut in the Blancpain GT series this season, joining Lamborghini team Attempto Racing.
Filippi, 31, will drive Attempto's #66 Huracan GT3 car in the opening round of the GT category's Endurance Cup at Monza this weekend.
The Italian will partner his compatriots Marco Mapelli and Giovanni Venturini, both Lamborghini factory drivers.
Filippi was runner-up to current Haas Formula 1 driver Romain Grosjean in GP2 in 2011, and has spent the last four years racing in IndyCar on a part-time schedule.
He scored a podium for the Carpenter Fisher Hartman outfit in 2015, finishing second behind team-mate Josef Newgarden.
Filippi has prior GT experience, having been a frontrunner in International GT Open in 2013.
