Sant’Agata Bolognese/Dubai, February 18, 2017. 

They are constant and make no mistakes: Rik Breukers, 18-year-old Dutch member of the Lamborghini Young Drivers Program, and Axcil Jefferies, 22-year-old from Zimbabwe with experience in the GP2 Series, won Race 2 and are now the new leaders of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East in the PRO class.

The second race of the Middle East series for the Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeos, held on Saturday, February 18 at the Dubai Autodrome, really started with all the prerequisites for an exciting fight for the top positions: Marco Antonelli started from the pole position and behind him was Rik Breukers. But in the first lap, there was a plot twist: the track, whose conditions were tricky because of the rain fallen before the start, misled Antonelli, who ran off track, ending up immediately out of the race. This gave the opportunity to the duo of the car # 7 of GDL Racing, Breukers and Jefferies, to manage the entire race and score another victory, after that conquered in Race 1 the previous day.

In the PRO class, Breukers and Jefferies are now leading the standings, but they are only one point ahead of the Huracán # 15 of FFF Racing by ACM, driven by the young German female driver Carrie Schreiner and the American Richard Goddard: in Race 2, they repeated the result of Race 1, thus getting a third place overall and second class place.

Also the PRO-AM category sees a new duo leading the standings: Hendrik Still and Paul Scheuschner, behind the wheel of the # 26 of Konrad Motorsport, who scored two first places in his category over the weekend. In Race 2, the PRO-AM podium was conquered by the duo formed by Steven Liquorish and George Richardson (# 47 GDL Racing), while Costantino Bertuzzi and Nigel Farmer finished in third position and they are now second in the standings thanks to an excellent performance in the first round at Abu Dhabi.

Since Antonelli and Roda earned no points during the race, the AM class has now a new leader: Andrew Haryanto (# 71 GDL Racing), who had an really amazing weekend: two second places overall and two first places in the AM class, thanks to a continuous improvement of his performance, session after session. The duo of the team GT3 Poland formed by Teodor Myszkowski and Andrej Lewandowski also achieved excellent results: besides the second place in the AM class, they also obtained a fourth place overall.

In the Lamborghini Cup class, Gabriele Murroni scored another success with the Huracán # 88 of Petri Corse. The Italian driver, at his first racing experience, the Italian driver has made a continuous improvement during the weekend.
