The fastest cars in Saturday’s two qualifying sessions for this weekend’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo races looked a lot like Friday’s practice sessions.
In Qualifying 1, the top spot overall and in the PRO Class, went to the No. 29 Change Racing, Lamborghini Charlotte driven by Richard Antinucci with a time of one minute, 23.697 seconds. The team was fastest overall in Friday’s second practice session.
Sandy Mitchell in the No. 1 Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus entry was atop the field and the PRO Class in Qualifying 2 with a time of 1:23.742 after besting the field in the first practice session Friday.
Jacob Eidson continued to be the quickest in PRO-AM as he and his teammate Damon Ockey were on Friday in the No. 09 US RaceTronics, Lamborghini Vancouver entry. Eidson, a newcomer to the championship, just missed the top qualifying speed as he recorded a lap of 1:23.770.
Dennis Lind in the No. 94 P1 Motorsports, Lamborghini Broward entry was the fastest in the second qualifying with a time of 1:24.779.
In the AM Class, McKay Snow (No. 63 Change Racing, Lamborghini Charlotte) continued to be the fastest with a lap of 1:25.258 in the first session and in the second session as well with a time of 1:25.114.
“The car was set up really well and Change Racing has done a great job,” he said. “I hopped in the car for the first time Thursday and I haven’t driven here (Barber) in a long time and it is a tough track to drive well.
“I have had to get used to the traction control and ABS system in the car. There are a lot of adjustments you have to make in the car in order to drive it to its full potential.”
Ashton Harrison (No. 43 Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus) was the fastest in the second practice Friday and was atop the LB Cup Class Saturday with a time of 1:26.872, which was almost two seconds faster than her best practice time.
Mel Johnson (No. 08 GMG Racing, Lamborghini Newport Beach) won the second session with a time of 1:27.332.
“I know this track really well because it is close to home,” Harrison said. “I was able to pull together the lap we were looking for at the end and it felt incredible.
“I’m really excited as this is my first-ever pole and to get it in Lamborghini Super Trofeo is an incredible experience for me.”
