Another new GT addition is West Racing’s Lamborghini Gallardo. The new entry brings back more Italian competition to the highly German dominate GT class.
The Georgia based Robertson Racing Ford GT has been a fan favorite underdog and 2011 promises to be yet another large stepping year for the team including a recently announced confirmed entry into the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans.
