Lewis Storms Through Field To Take Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America Victory
Corey Lewis started the 2016 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America season the same way he ended 2015 - winning.
Lewis made a spirited drive to the top step of the podium after starting from last place, claiming a 9.288-second Round 1 victory in the No. 16 Change Racing Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo representing Lamborghini Carolinas on Saturday at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
"It wasn't the way we usually like to start these race weekends, but it just so happened to be in qualifying we had a red flag and we didn't get a time in," Lewis said. "We had a lot of work cut out for us in Race 1 and just kept our nose clean. We just tried to be be as consistent as we could and manage the traffic as best we could. It was an awesome job by Change Racing and Lamborghini Carolinas and Monster Energy drink."
Shinya Michimi, a championship contender in Super Trofeo Europe last season, finished second overall with a late pass in the No. 1 Prestige Performance entry representing Lamborghini Paramus. James Sofronas rounded out the overall podium with a third-place finish in the No 14 GMG machine representing Lamborghini Newport Beach. Sofronas was also the first Pro-Am finisher.
