Record Grid To Compete In Three-Race Weekend
DANVILLE, Va. (Aug. 18, 2015) - The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America series will hit the halfway mark of its exciting 2015 season with three rounds of racing action Aug. 21-23 at scenic Virginia International Raceway, featuring the largest-ever grid.

The North American series, in its third season, will showcase 24 cars competing at the 17-turn, 3.27-mile circuit. VIR is the only track to host the series in all three of its North American seasons.

The weekend will showcase three 50-minute races for competitors in the evocative supercars. This season features multi-class racing for the first time with the introduction of the new Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo car, powered by a 620-horsepower V10 engine, which was introduced to the North American public last year at VIR.

It joins the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4, the only Lamborghini in the series for the first two seasons.

Round 5 is scheduled for 11:20 a.m. (ET) Saturday, Aug. 22 with Round 4 following at 6:40 p.m. Round 4 was postponed due to heavy rain in late June at Watkins Glen International. The final race of the weekend, Round 6, will be at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 23. Practice will take place Friday, Aug. 21, with qualifying at 8 a.m. Saturday.
