Lamborghini Super Trofeo celebrates Lime Rock Park weekend
Jul 10, 2013, 5:30 AM

The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series is welcomed to North American motorsports family, with extraordinary racing and unparalleled hospitality at AMLS North East Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park. Four more 2013 races in Canada and USA.

Herndon VA, Tuesday 9th, July 2013. The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series enjoyed a successful North American debut in front of a large holiday crowd at Lime Rock Park, Connecticut this past weekend. The single make series, featuring lightweight, 570hp, all wheel drive Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4s, provided plenty of exhilarating action in two compelling races.

The weekend featured two 1-hour practice sessions on Thursday, followed by qualifying and the first ever race on North America soil on Friday, culminating with a second race prior to the AMLS North East Grand Prix on Saturday, providing drivers just under 5 hours of track time.

Away from the track, the Lamborghini Lounge provided a spectacular venue of first class hospitality for Lamborghini customers from across the North East. Some even made the pilgrimage to Lime Rock Park from as far as Laguna Beach to network with Drivers, Teams, Dealers, Lamborghini Management and other like-minded enthusiasts. One such fan included Hollywood actor and motorsports enthusiast, Dax Shepard, added his own unique touch of stardust to the weekend action, while proving his racing credentials with a brilliant podium finish on Saturday.

Dax commented, “What in the world is cooler than racing Lamborghinis? The cars look amazing and are incredible to drive. But it’s about more than the competing. It’s about becoming part of the Lamborghini family. The people are so welcoming, and the hospitality is the best I’ve experienced at a race - a great weekend.”

Automobili Lamborghini America Marketing General Manager, Jason Chinnock added, “This race weekend provided us with the perfect platform to launch the Super Trofeo Series in North America. We were able to provide Lamborghini customers, partners, dealers and fans with an extraordinary experience. Whether racing, spectating, meeting up with friends or other owners, we welcome all to future events.”

Following Lime Rock, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series moves on to Kansas Motor Speedway on the 17/18 August. There is still limited availability for the next round, where more of the same breathtaking racing and welcoming hospitality will be on display.
