Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series Makes North American Debut

With an established presence in Europe and Asia, Automobili Lamborghini introduced the eagerly awaited Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series to North America at the AMLS North Eastern Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park the first week of July.

Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo is a single make series that is perfectly placed as a stepping stone for drivers aspiring to graduate to professional GT racing. The philosophy of enabling enthusiasts through to seasoned race drivers to progress their driving ambition is part of Lamborghini's Squadra Corse program.

The series is built around the established racing pedigree of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo which features 570hp, all-wheel drive and variable aerodynamics that enable drivers to achieve a downforce range from 282lbs (128kg) to 352lbs (160kg). The net result is on-track performance just shy of GT3 standards, and with sporting and technical regulations that ensure close competition, Super Trofeo allows drivers to master high-level sports car racing competition while measuring themselves against their peers.
