Watkins Glen, New York – The Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America is bursting at the seams this weekend with a record three dozen cars entered for the doubleheader round at Watkins Glen International. The 36 entries dwarf the previous top five courses in the first two rounds of this year.

This is the latest sign of continued interest and growth in the IMSA-sanctioned one-off car series, featuring a new Evo2 version of the popular Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo that every member has raced.

“The introduction of the Evo2 and improvements to the vehicle are an important driver of rapid growth,” said Chris Ward, Senior Motorsport Manager, Automobili Lamborghini America. “Platform stability is also key. The fact that all modern cars can be upgraded from the (original) Huracán Super Trofeo, then to the Evo, then to the Evo2 – we’ve had the same platform for 10 years, which is unprecedented in single rig racing.

“And then there’s the schedule,” Ward added. “This year we are racing on some amazing tracks, not least this weekend at Watkins Glen. This should be a big deal.”

As usual, there are a couple of 50-minute races scheduled this weekend, one each on Saturday and Sunday. Upon completion, the 2022 North American season will be half completed.

Three of the four classes compete fiercely ahead of the Watkins Glen round. In the Pro class, Kyle Marchelli and Danny Formal, who are tied for first place in the Prestige Performance rankings with Wayne Taylor Racing, the Lamborghini Paramus Huracán, have a two-point lead over O’Gara Motorsport’s Edoardo Piscopo and Patrick Kuyala at number 50. /Change Racing /USA RaceTronics, Lamborghini Beverly Hills Huracán.

At ProAm, Ashton Harrison and Tom Long (No. 25, Harrison Contracting with Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus Huracán) are four points clear of Bryson Lew and John Dubets (No. 46 Precision Performance Motorsports, Lamborghini Palm Beach Huracán). A new member of ProAm to keep an eye on this weekend is the #42 NTE Sport, a Lamborghini Dallas Huracán driven by Don Yount and IMSA Diverse Driver Development Scholarship winner Jayden Konwright.

Class Am is loaded with 15 entries. Class leaders David Staab and Nikko Reger (No. 48 Precision Performance Motorsports, Lamborghini Palm Beach Huracán) lead Cam Aliabadi (No. 17 Dream Racing Motorsport, Lamborghini Walnut Creek Huracán) by three points. In the LB Cup, Slade Stewart (No. 14 Flying Lizard Motorsports, Lamborghini Newport Beach Huracán) has the most comfortable points lead, nine ahead of Ofir Levy and John Hirschberg (No. 13 O’Gara Motorsport/Change Racing/US RaceTronics, Lamborghini Rancho Mirage Huracan) ).

After a couple of workouts on Thursday, the Lamborghini Super Trofeo qualifying is scheduled for 9:30 AM ET Friday. Race 1 starts at 14:25 on Friday and race 2 starts at 12:10 on Saturday. Both races are broadcast live on IMSA.com/TVLive and Peacock, as well as on IMSA Radio.
