Coming from a positive Le Mans 24 Hours debut, the FIA World Endurance Championship Lamborghini Iron Lynx operation will be back on track in a different continent at the Brazilian capital of racing, the 4.3-kilometre Autódromo José Carlos Pace of Interlagos.

The 6 Hours of São Paulo is returning to the FIA WEC schedule a decade after the previous event in 2014. Back then, the twisty and challenging circuit made for a spectacular race, and another impressive show is in the cards for 2024.

The Lamborghini SC63 LMDh racecar got its first points finish of the year with seventh at Le Mans and will be back into action in a place where teams had no chance to test, which might provide more opportunities in a new situation for everyone.

Once again, the preparations have been thorough both from a technical standpoint and as a logistic operation, with the paddock bursting into action on Monday for early setup. Representing the Italian manufacturer, the line-up of car #63, consisting of Mirko Bortolotti, Daniil Kvyat, and Edoardo Mortara, will be in the car for the first time in Free Practice on Friday.

The Formula 1 veteran will make a welcomed return to Interlagos. Kvyat competed in four editions of the Brazilian Grand Prix there, with two points finishes to his credit. Mortara recently raced in Sao Paulo, although not at Interlagos. The 37-year-old Swiss-Italian took part in two editions of the Formula E E-Prix at Anhembi Sambadrome and will make his debut on the Grand Prix circuit. Last but not least, Mirko Bortolotti will compete for the first time in Brazil. However, the 34-year-old Italian proved to be a very quick learner before and is looking forward to providing another one of his masterful performances.

The 6 Hours of São Paulo will get underway on Sunday at 11:30 AM local time. Being in the middle of Brazilian winter, the weather might be throwing some curveballs to teams and drivers, with relatively low temperatures and chances of rainfall.

Emmanuel Esnault, Racing Director: “This race will be very important for many reasons. First, we are coming back to FIA WEC after a generally positive run in Le Mans, and everyone wants to continue showing further progress. This event also marks the start of the second half of the season, and it will be key to put all the work we have done together for the end of the year and in preparation for 2025. Competing overseas is a proving ground for any organisation, especially the newer ones like ours, but by doing a good job in Brazil, we will surely be able to carry the momentum into the rest of the season and beyond.”
