Andrea Caldarelli (born 14 February 1990 in Pescara) is an Italian racing driver. He has competed in such series as Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0, the Formula Three Euroseries, GP2 Asia, the GP3 Series and the Super Formula series.

He undertook a Formula One test in 2008 with Toyota Racing[1] and in 2010 with Ferrari.[2]

Career

Super GT

Caldarelli claimed his maiden victory in Super GT in 2014. Driving alongside Daisuke It? for Lexus Team KeePer TOM'S, Caldarelli claimed victory in the opening race of the season at Okayama.[3] The duo would finish the season second in the GT500-class championship to Tsugio Matsuda and Ronnie Quintarelli.

Lamborghini factory driver

Ahead of the 2017 Blancpain GT Series campaign, Caldarelli joined Lamborghini Squadra Corse's factory roster, taking part in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup campaign with GRT Grasser Racing Team.[4] Partnering with Christian Engelhart and Mirko Bortolotti, the trio claimed the series championship at season's end. Two years later, Caldarelli swept all three of the championships under the GT World Challenge Europe umbrella; the Endurance Cup, Sprint Cup, and combined championship at large.[5]

For the 2021 season, Caldarelli began competing in the United States, taking part in K-Pax Racing's return to the GT World Challenge America. Paired with Jordan Pepper, Caldarelli would claim nine overall victories in 13 races, taking the series championship two races early.[6][7] He returned to the team the following year,[8] successfully defending his title during the 2022 season.[9]

In July 2022, Caldarelli was named as one of the first drivers slated to compete in Lamborghini's LMDh entry, set to debut in 2024.[10]
