Lee Davis and Ryan Eversley, representing Lamborghini Beverly Hills and GMG Racing took the first win of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North American series last weekend.
Featuring teams from across the U.S., the inaugural grid at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut saw racers from Miami, Chicago, Beverly Hills, Dallas, New Jersey, and the Carolinas. Piloting a race-specific Lamborghini LP 570-4 Gallardo, the Blancpain Super Trofeo Series consists of two 50-minute races with a mandatory pitstop between minutes 20 and 30 to allow for a driver change.
Davis and Eversley piloted the number-33 car to first place, while Richard Antinucci finished in second and Cooper MacNeil finished in third. The leading amateur on the podium was Alex Welch, placing fourth overall.
In the second day of racing, Alex Welch climbed to the top of the podium after Lee Davis had to make a late pit stop, surrendering the victory to Welch.
“The success of the opening weekend is testament to all the hard working people at Lamborghini and our partners who got the cars to the grid and delivered an exceptional start to the Blancpain Super Trofeo Series in North America,” series coordinator Tristan Herbert said after the race.
The second race weekend for the North American Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series is on August 17-18 at Kansas Motor Speedway.
