Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

For­mula 3 race win­ner Ru­pert Svend­sen-cook will make a re­turn to com­pe­ti­tion in this week­end’s 12 Hours of Zand­voort af­ter join­ing the Leipert Lam­borgh­ini team.

The 25-year-old will join Mar­cel Leipert and Siegfried Ven­ema to han­dle the squad’s Hu­ra­can Su­per Tro­feo ma­chine in the en­durance event, which is round four of the Euro­pean 24 Hour Se­ries.

The race will mark Svend­sen-- Cook’s first out­ing since he won the MRF Chal­lenge ti­tle in In­dia in 2014. Pre­vi­ously Svend­sen-cook had raced suc­cess­fully in Bri­tish F3 with Car­lin, win­ning three races from 2010-2011.

“I put my rac­ing ca­reer on the back burner be­cause I wanted to fo­cus on build­ing a ca­reer in man­age­ment and driver coach­ing, and through that I’ve done some work with Leipert in the Su­per Tro­feo,” said Svend­sen-cook.

“The big­gest thing to get used to is the ex­tra weight of a GT car against a sin­gle-seater, but the power and brak­ing is very im­pres­sive. It has less aero than the GT3 Hu­ra­can, but more power so it’ll be com­pet­i­tive. I’d love to res­ur­rect my ca­reer in GTS, but driv­ing isn’t my only av­enue in the sport any­more, so we’ll see what hap­pens.”
