The Lamborghini Super Trofeo one-make series is heading to America this year for the first time in the series’ four-year history.
Dubbed “the ultimate single-make series,” the Lamborghini Super Trofeo first debuted in Europe in 2009 before it expanded to Asia last year. This year, it’ll run six events throughout North America (including Canada) with the International Motor Sport Association (IMSA) as the sanctioning body. The Italian automaker did also announce that it has a long-term agreement to run the series under the same sanctioning body as the newly-announced United SportsCar Racing in the future.
The series is the only single-make, four-wheel drive series in the world and features the Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo powered by a 570-hp, V10 engine. Winners of the U.S. series will be invited to take part in the world final in Italy alongside series winners from Europe and Asia.
The season will kick off on June 15-16 at Mid-Ohio, alongside the Grand-Am event. Next, it’ll team up with ALMS on July 5-6 at Lime Rock before heading back to a Grand-Am event on August 17-18 in Kansas City. The series will then head to Canada at Calabogie with IMSA on September 7-8 before venturing to the east coast at Virginia International Raceway along with the ALMS event taking place on October 5-6. The season will end at Fontana in California with the Indy Car race on October 18-19.
“We’re extremely excited to be bringing the Super Trofeo to the USA,” said Lamborghini America COO Michael Lock. “The Lamborghini marque continues to gain recognition and followers apace in the USA, and motorsport is the perfect way to open the door further on our brand and our technical competence, for both our customers and also our fans.”
