Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series
The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series made its North American debut this past weekend at Lime Rock Park. The one make racing series pits lightweight Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4s putting out 570 horsepower against each other. The cars are a very good basis for some exciting racing action and spectators were able to watch two good races.
Of note was the participation of actor, Dax Shepard, who had a very good weekend. He managed a podium finish in the one make driver’s series. Since all the cars are essentially the same the races are close and largely come down to driver skill.
Next for the series will be Kansas Motor Speedway on the August 17th and 18th. For those automotive enthusiasts not heading to Pebble Beach that weekend, it will be a great event for all spectators.
The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series enjoyed a successful North American debut in front of a large holiday crowd at Lime Rock Park, Connecticut this past weekend. The single make series, featuring lightweight, 570hp, all wheel drive Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4s, provided plenty of exhilarating action in two compelling races.
The weekend featured two 1-hour practice sessions on Thursday, followed by qualifying and the first ever race on North America soil on Friday, culminating with a second race prior to the ALMS North East Grand Prix on Saturday, providing drivers just under 5 hours of track time.
Away from the track, the Lamborghini Lounge provided a spectacular venue of first class hospitality for Lamborghini customers from across the North East. Some even made the pilgrimage to Lime Rock Park from as far as Laguna Beach to network with Drivers, Teams, Dealers, Lamborghini Management and other like-minded enthusiasts. One such fan included Hollywood actor and motorsports enthusiast, Dax Shepard, added his own unique touch of stardust to the weekend action, while proving his racing credentials with a brilliant podium finish on Saturday.
Dax commented, “What in the world is cooler than racing Lamborghinis? The cars look amazing and are incredible to drive. But it’s about more than the competing. It’s about becoming part of the Lamborghini family. The people are so welcoming, and the hospitality is the best I’ve experienced at a race – a great weekend.”
Automobili Lamborghini America Marketing General Manager, Jason Chinnock added, “This race weekend provided us with the perfect platform to launch the Super Trofeo Series in North America. We were able to provide Lamborghini customers, partners, dealers and fans with an extraordinary experience. Whether racing, spectating, meeting up with friends or other owners, we welcome all to future events.”
Following Lime Rock, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series moves on to Kansas Motor Speedway on the 17/18 August. There is still limited availability for the next round, where more of the same breathtaking racing and welcoming hospitality will be on display.
