TRG Expands into Lamborghini ST; Davison Returns for Monterey

TRG launches Lamborghini effort for Super Trofeo…


The Racer’s Group has announced an expansion into the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America Series for 2016, which will see the multi-time championship-winning squad field a Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo this season.

James Davison returns to the Kevin Buckler-owned team for this weekend’s season-opener at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, alongside team regular Derek DeBoer in the Lamborghini effort.

Davison, meanwhile, will also take part in Sunday’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race in TRG-AMR’s Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 with Brandon Davis.

It marks TRG’s foray into the increasingly popular single-make series, which features a six-round calendar this season, mostly on WeatherTech Championship weekends.

“This is definitely an exciting new chapter in the history of TRG as we are debuting a new program with Lamborghini at one of our favorite events here at Laguna Seca,” Buckler said.

“Derek DeBoer and co-driver James Davison are going to make one heck of a team in the Lamborghini, and although Brandon and James have driven together before, it was part of a bigger squad.

“This is the first time that they will be doing a sprint race. The team did an excellent job with preparation and we’re ready.”

The California-based team has already completed an initial test with its new Super Trofeo car ahead of this weekend’s season-opener in Monterey.
