More than 50 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVOs are set to head to Misano next weekend for the Italian manufacturer’s World Final meeting that brings together fields from the North American and European regional one-make championships.

The Super Trofeo North America and Super Trofeo Europe title deciders will take place on Friday, October 29 followed by four World Final races split into the Pro/Pro-Am and Am/LB Cup category groups on the following two days.

A field of 21 North American entries is expected, along with 34 Huracan ST EVOs on the European bill although one car in the latter series is yet to be confirmed.

Richard Antinucci leads the North American Pro standings by 13 points over Stevan McAleer, who will team up with Jeroen Mul for the final two races of the campaign.

Dream Racing’s Antinucci extended his advantage over Change Racing’s McAleer with a victory and a second place last time out at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

Jacob Eidson and Steven Aghakhani head to Misano third in the standings, 21 points off the top spot and three ahead of Danny Formal and Kyle Marcelli of Wayne Taylor Racing.

Bryan Ortiz and Brandon Gdovic have a clear cushion at the sharp end of Pro-Am courtesy of their Laguna Seca sweep, with closest challenger Victor Gomes running 30 points behind with 32 points still at play.

17 points separate Luke Berkeley from Ashton Harrison at the top of Am, whereas LB Cup is set for a much tighter contest between Change Racing’s Matt Dicken and Precision Performance Motorsport pair Mark Kvamme and Terry Olsen who will head to Italy one point apart.

The North American field is set to feature six Pro cars, five Pro-Am entries, four in Am and six in LB Cup.

The top category includes solo drives for Max Weering and Dario Capitano in addition to the four sets of pairings.

Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe’s Pro division is currently led by Kevin Gilardoni and Leonardo Pulcini who have won four races for Oregon Team so far this year.

Their closest rival Weering sits eight points behind and will contest the Europe races with Loris Spinelli. That pair claimed a sweep of the Nürburgring round last month.

Leipert Motorsport driver Sebastian Balthasar is third in the Pro stakes and the only other person capable of clinching the title with a 24-point difference to make up.

Balthasar is paired up with former Bentley factory team member Seb Morris for the second round in a row.

Other Pro entries include Raul Guzman/Glenn van Berlo, Daan Pijl/Danny Kroes and solo drivers Kevin Rossel and Sebastian Freymuth, who is not slated to compete in the World Final element of the weekend.

Andrzej Lewandowski is all but assured the Pro-Am title considering his Vincenz Sospiri Racing co-driver Karol Basz is the only competitor in mathematical contention.

Claude-Yves Gosselin and Hans Fabri are the European class leaders in Am and LB Cup heading to the returning World Finals event, which was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
