Sbirrazzuoli Gets First Win In Exciting Conclusion At Laguna Seca
In only his second Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America start Cedric Sbirrazzuoli took the checkered flag to win Round 2 to cap off an exciting weekend of racing at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

Sbirrazzuoli earned the top honor in his No. 07 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo fielded by STR and representing Lamborghini Dallas with a .0436 victory over Round 1 winner Richard Antinucci in the No. 50 O'Gara Motorsport entry representing Lamborghini Beverly Hills. Sbirrazzuoli was also the top Pro-Am finisher.

2014 Driver Champion Kevin Conway and co-driver Enrique Bernoldi completed the overall Huracán podium, finishing third in the Lamborghini Paramus entry fielded by Prestige Performance.

"First of all it was my dream to race in Laguna so leaving with a second and first place overall and two wins in Pro-Am, for me, is great," Sbirrazzuoli said. "Yesterday I didn't know the car, the track or the team, but in the end everything went right and we won."

Joe Courtney and Aaron Povoledo finished fourth overall and second in the Huracán Pro-Am division in the No. 77 Musante-Courtney Racing entry representing Lamborghini Miami.

O'Gara Motorsport driver Ryan Ockey rounded out the Top-5 and was the first Huracán Amateur finisher in the No. 89 Lamborghini Vancouver entry.

Sbirrazzuoli picked up a position on the first lap to sit in second after starting third. He maintained his position until the mandatory pitstop window opened. After Antinucci received a drive thru penalty for a shortened stop, Sbirrazzuoli took the lead and never looked back.

Sbirrazuoli had over a 7-second lead with 12 minutes remaining. Antinucci, sitting in fourth, overtook Bernoldi and Corey Lewis in a single pass with 10:34 to go. He continued to chip away at Sbirrazuoli's lead, but the young driver from Monaco was able to hold him off to get his first win of the season.

The No. 14 Lamborghini Beverly Hills entry driven by Brian Wong and Damon Ockey finished second in the Pro-Am class.
