The North American series, in its second season, will compete at the iconic circuit in Northern California for the first time with a record grid of 15 cars that continues to grow at every event. The 11-turn, 2.238-mile layout includes the "Corkscrew," one of the most famous corners in worldwide racing.

Two 50-minute races are scheduled for competitors in the incredible Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo cars, which are powered by a 570-horsepower V10 engine and feature permanent four-wheel drive.

Race One is scheduled for 10:50 a.m. (local time) Saturday, May 3, with Race Two scheduled for 12:40 p.m. Sunday, May 4. Practice and qualifying will take place Friday, May 2.

All drivers will continue the race for the North American championship and a berth in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo World Final on Nov. 22-23 at the Sepang International Circuit near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. That event features the best drivers from all three worldwide Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championships - Europe, Asia and North America.

2013 series champion Kevin Conway leads the Driver Classification with 27 points after the first two rounds of the North America championship March 13-14 at Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Fla. Conway, driving the No. 29 entry for Change Racing and representing Lamborghini Carolinas, finished second to Al Carter by .495 of a second in the first round at Sebring and won the second round by 2.495 seconds over John Farano.

Farano is second in the championship with 22 points in the No. 63 entry fielded by Jota Corse and representing Lamborghini Dallas. He recorded two podium finishes at Sebring, with a third place in Race One complementing his runner-up result in Race Two.

Carter is third in the championship with 15 points in the No. 80 Mitchum Motorsports entry representing Lamborghini Palm Beach. Sebring pole winner Andrew Palmer is fourth at 14 points in the No. 14 GMG Racing car for Lamborghini Beverly Hills. 2013 World Final champion Palmer won the pole at Sebring and produced two top-five finishes.

Damon Ockey is fifth overall and the leading driver in the Amateur class with 13 points in the No. 88 GMG Racing entry for Lamborghini Vancouver. 2013 Amateur champion Tom O'Gara will look to put his season back on track at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca after finishing eighth and 10th, respectively, in the first two rounds at Sebring in the No. 69 GMG Racing entry representing Lamborghini Beverly Hills.

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo car is the ultimate single-make race car and the only four-wheel drive GT racer in the world. The 570-horsepower, V10 Gallardo LP 570-4 features impressive technology such as paddle shift E-gear transmission, Öhlins race shocks, Brembo brakes, a carbon fiber aerodynamic package that includes a rear wing with 10 adjustable positions, MTA data acquisition, air jacks, center wheel locks and more.

Lamborghini will provide world-class hospitality this weekend, including for clients and guests from Lamborghini Beverly Hills and Lamborghini Dallas. The exciting new Huracán LP 610-4 also will be displayed throughout the weekend in the Lamborghini Village at the circuit.
