MONTEREY, Calif. (April 27, 2016) - The green flag will drop on the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America season as the series starts its 2016 championship April 28-May 1 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California.

Racing in the series is divided into separate podiums, recognizing the breadth of talent in the Super Trofeo field. After each race, there is a podium for the top three finishers in Overall, Pro-Am, Amateur and Lamborghini Cup, for those just being introduced to the professional aspects of racing, classes. The championship provides exciting action for professional and aspiring professional drivers alike.
There will be guaranteed to be new championship contenders as both the 2015 Pro and Pro-Am teams and drivers have moved to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship for the debut of the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 in the GT Daytona class or into another Super Trofeo division.
