With an established presence in Europe and Asia, Automobili Lamborghini introduced the long awaited Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series to North America at the AMLS North Eastern Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park this past weekend. Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo is a single make series that is perfectly placed as a stepping stone for drivers aspiring to graduate into professional GT racing. The series is built around the established racing pedigree of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo which features 570hp, all-wheel drive and variable aerodynamics. Super Trofeo allows drivers to master high-level sports car racing competition while measuring themselves against their peers.
With this being the first ever Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Race in North America, the race at Lime Rock park proved to be a real thriller. Lee Davis & Ryan Eversley in Car #33, representing Lamborghini Beverly Hills, took the maiden checkered flag of the series. Richard Antinucci secured second place, in car #99 and Cooper MacNeil came home in third. The leading Amateur on the podium was Alex Welch representing Lamborghini Palm Beach and he placed fourth overall. Lee Carpenter took second in the Amateur category, and Peter Aronson rounded out the top 3.
Race winner Ryan Eversley said, “Words can’t describe how we feel right now. My teammate Lee Davis had an amazing race and the car drove so well. We need to thank the team at GMG racing and the guys at the Beverly Hills dealership for prepping and providing this incredible car.”
Series Coordinator Tristan Herbert added, “Today delivered a great start to the Blancpain Super Trofeo series here in America. Both drivers and cars responded to the demands of Lime Rock incredibly well. The action and the racing was of the highest quality and we’re looking forward to more of the same.”
