Coming off dominant back-to-back championship seasons, winning seven titles in the past two years, Wayne Taylor Racing and Prestige Performance Racing has confirmed its driver lineup for the upcoming Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America season.

Four cars will compete in the six-round series, which kicks off next weekend at Mid-Ohio, in support of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

World Final and Pro class champion Trent Hindman will once again pilot the No. 1 Prestige Performance Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo, with new co-driver Jonathan Cecotto.

Cameron Cassels will return in the No. 33 Lamborghini to race as a single driver in the Am class, with Sheena Monk, fresh off a podium finish in the World Final, in the No. 7 entry, and a to-be-announced lineup in the No. 10 car.

“Wayne Taylor Racing is looking forward to building on its winning legacy in the North American Super Trofeo Series,” said team manager Travis Houge

“Our list of drivers is top notch and, as always, we have high expectations of them and our team.

“The competition has grown significantly and the introduction of the new EVO race car will bring its challenges, but we are steadfastly prepared and looking forward to getting on track.”

The team, which fielded the first-ever female driver pairing last year, went onto clinch the Pro class driver, team and dealer championships for a second consecutive year, with Hindman having been joined by Riccardo Agostini, who also took World Final honors in Imola.

This year, second-generation racer Cecotto, son of Venezuelan ex-Formula One driver Johnny, will pair with Hindman.

“It will be the first time for me racing outside Europe,” Jonathan said. “I’m quite curious and excited, there will be a lot of new things for me to experience. New race tracks, new people, new environment, new culture.”

Cassels, meanwhile, will supplement his duties in IMSA Prototype Challenge presented by Mazda with a full season of Super Trofeo, with Monk set for her first season in the LB Cup class.

“We are so proud to again partner with Wayne Taylor Racing and the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Series,” said Chris Turner, President, Prestige Performance Racing.

“Together, we have built a winning platform that inspires racers, both professional and amateur, and customers alike. I am looking forward to furthering the momentum we have established these past three years.”

      A shame it couldn’t be with a GM product in GT3, but so far the C7 GT3 hasn’t been demonstrated to its very capable potential in NA yet…..
