series worldwide with the Gallardo. Complementary racing activities for
drivers at other skill levels will also be offered.
In 2013, Lamborghini will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the company?s
foundation. Dozens of activities around the world will be held to honor the
great past, present and future of the brand. With the greatest reunion of
Lamborghini drivers from around the world ever to be held in Italy in May,
the ?Grande Giro Lamborghini 50th Anniversary? will lead hundreds of
