Sofronas Edges Conway In Electrifying Opening Race at Calabogie

James Sofronas of Lamborghini Beverly Hills and GMG Racing won a pulsating Fifth Round of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series ahead of Kevin Conway. The two fastest qualifiers of the weekend went toe-to-toe from lap 1, as Conway representing Lamborghini Carolinas and Change Racing, took the lead from second position, going into turn one. In his distinctive black and orange #29 car, Conway held onto the lead until lap 9, where Sofronas ducked inside on turn 8, retaking first place. Sofronas' lead was short lived as Conway regained top spot as the two came close to contact exiting the pit-lane, following the mandatory 45-second stop. There was to be a final twist as Sofronas took advantage of Conway's apparent lack of grip, and powered home to take the checkered flag.

Sofronas said, "I had great battle with Kevin from the drop of the green flag which continued throughout the race. Hats off to the GMG crew, as they prepped the car fantastically and I was able to take advantage of better traction. I'd like to dedicate the win to Tom O'Gara and Parris Mullins from Lamborghini Beverly Hills and Jeff Kreitzman at Forgiato Wheel for giving me the opportunity to race."
