Trent Hindman and Riccardo Agostini closed out their Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America championship season in style, sweeping the final two races of the year at Imola.

The Prestige Performance duo doubled down on their Race 1 win earlier in the day from second on the grid in Race 2.

Hindman made his way past Lamborghini Junior Driver Jeroen Mul in the No. 134 Change Racing entry on the opening stint and pulled out to a solid lead before Agostini hopped in during the pit stop.

The Italian had increased that lead to more than six seconds over Mul when a safety car for a stranded car wiped the advantage away with 18 minutes remaining.

On the ensuing restart, Mul was unable to quickly make his way past the two Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia series entrants that were lined up between Agostini’s car and his own, allowing the series co-champion to pull away to a comfortable advantage.

The final margin of victory was 7.101 seconds.

Brandon Gdovic matched his third-place finish from Race 1 in the second race of the day for Change Racing, while the pairing of Michele Beretta and Katherine Legge came home fourth overall in the No. 110 car for Prestige.

Edoardo Piscopo prevailed in a fierce fight with Austin Versteeg for the Pro-Am win.

A finish of fifth overall locked down the class championship for Piscopo and season-long co-driver Taylor Proto while Versteeg settled for second.

Other class winners included Yuki Harata for Dream Racing in the Am class and Ryan Hardwick in LB Cup, driving for the same team.

Kei Cozzolino and Afiq Yazid swept the weekend in the Asian championship with their win in Race 2.

With the continental championships now settled, attention turns to the World Final portion of the weekend.

Qualifying for the final two races of the weekend will begin at 10:10 a.m. local time, with Race 1 for the Am and LB Cup class machines at 1:20 p.m.

The first World Final race for Pro and Pro-Am entries will follow at 3:30 p.m. Live streaming coverage is available via the Lamborghini Squadra Corse YouTube page.

RESULTS: Race 2
