The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America series will see the addition of a new team and another new Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo to the grid, with the launch of Bad Lambo Racing.
The Tampa-based team has announced the arrival of its new Lamborghini, which will debut in next weekend’s season-opener at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The car will receive support by TUDOR United SportsCar Championship squad Park Place Motorsports, with John Horton serving as team engineer.
Bad Lambo team principal Dr. Jim Norman, a former Rolex 24 at Daytona class winner, will be sharing the car for the season with his son Josh.
“The opportunity to team with my son as my co-driver is a dream come true,” Jim Norman said. “Racing a new Lamborghini will make the dream even better.”
Josh Norman has just turned 21, and is a junior at the University of Florida studying Life Sciences with a major in Biology.
“I can’t wait to get into our new Huracán, and see what we can do.” Josh said; “We plan on being very competitive from the beginning and making a strong showing for the Gator Nation.”
Bad Lambo will represent Lamborghini Palm Beach and will join the No. 73 Park Place Motorsports Porsche 911 GT America in the TUDOR Championship paddock; taking full advantage of their engineering and strategy expertise throughout the season.
“We’re very excited to have Jim and Josh, as well as the new Lambo in our paddock” Horton said.
“We know Jim has a competitive spirit that exceeds most in the paddock, combining that with Josh’s enthusiasm and young talent is going to make for an exciting season as we fight for race wins and the championship.”
