Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo is a single make series that is perfectly placed as a stepping stone for drivers aspiring to graduate to professional GT racing. The philosophy of enabling enthusiasts through to seasoned race drivers to progress their driving ambition is part of Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse program.

The series is built around the established racing pedigree of the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo which features 570hp, all-wheel drive and variable aerodynamics that enable drivers to achieve a downforce range from 282lbs (128kg) to 352lbs (160kg). The net result is on-track performance just shy of GT3 standards, and with sporting and technical regulations that ensure close competition, Super Trofeo allows drivers to master high-level sports car racing competition while measuring themselves against their peers.

The other distinctive aspect to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series is the high standard of off-track hospitality that creates a genuine sense of esprit de corps among competitors while providing the perfect premium environment for hosting guests and sponsors in a fashion that is consistent with Lamborghini’s supercar status.

COO of Automobili Lamborghini America Michael Lock said, “The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series in North America. It is a bold statement in our commitment towards motorsport. With such passionate and knowledgeable racing fans in the US, we look forward to showcasing a successful and well contested series ahead.”

Randy Hembrey, Race Director for IMSA added, “We are excited to be able to welcome Lamborghini to the IMSA portfolio. This is an historic moment for sports car racing in the North America and we are proud to be representing the brand. The cars are look and perform incredibly well, are highly competitive and will put on an exciting show for the fans.”
