It will be very exciting, but we will have a lot to learn. At the same time, we will definitely deliver great results. I will try my absolute best to offer all my knowledge about the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO, in hopes that we can win this championship.”

Jordan Pepper, from Gauteng, South Africa, first joined K-PAX Racing as a part of the team’s expansion into Europe.

The 24-year-old spent the last two seasons under the Bentley Motorsport banner, with a major victory at the Bathurst 12 Hours and a top-10 showing at Nürburgring with the team in 2020.
“When the opportunity came up that K-PAX Racing was going to switch to Lamborghini, Darren asked me if I wanted to join the team and drive – something I could not say ‘no’ to. Jim [Haughey]’s team is one of the best teams I’ve ever had the privilege of driving for. It was a tough first year, but I really enjoyed myself in 2020. This was a partnership that I did not want to let go, and it was something I wanted to continue. When the chance was there for 2021 and beyond, it was something I could not miss.”

My first impression about my new ‘home’ is really great, I already saw a really good organization and harmony between them and drivers. It’s my first time in America but I’m sure with the help of my teammate Corey who has a lot of experience in all of these circuits I’m sure will be quite easy to learn everything. The team is ready and I’m sure will be a successful season.”
