Graduate engineer and former racing driver Gottfried Grasser founded GRT with friends in 2011 as a small outfit with an ambitious goal - to become one of the top-class teams in sports car racing.
Based in St. Margarethen near Knittelfeld only five kilometres from the famous Red Bull Ring, the venture began with only a handful of people and a one-room workshop for a single car. More than a decade of relentless work and determination later, they have turned GRT into a household name in international motorsports. The team’s breakthrough came in 2014, marked by the start of its successful collaboration with Lamborghini Squadra Corse. GRT’s remarkable appearances on the European stage led to the Italian sports car manufacturer partnering with the organisation and tasking it with the development of the Lamborghini Huracán GT3. In 2015, GRT were victorious on the car’s debut in the hard-fought Blancpain Endurance Series at Monza.
