The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America series is set for its first trip to iconic Road America for this weekend’s 5th and 6th rounds of the 2016 season, with the championship heating up in all categories.
A total of 21 cars are entered for Road America, marking a number of new and returning teams and drivers to the series, following a season-low 17 entries during the Fourth of July weekend at Watkins Glen last month.
ENTRY LIST: Road America
DAC Motorsports expands into a five-car operation, with the addition of the No. 33 Lamborghini Huracán LP620-2 of Jake Rattenbury and No. 57 car for Jackie Heinricher, who will compete in the Pro/Am and LB Cup categories, respectively.
Former series winner Madison Snow is back at DXDT Racing in the No. 48 car after focusing on his IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship commitments at Watkins Glen, while fellow Lamborghini GTD driver Cedric Sbirrazzuoli makes his first Super Trofeo start of the year in the No. 07 Dream Racing entry alongside Larry DeGeorge.
TRG – Lamborghini has also returned, with an all-new lineup of Gerald Kraut and Joel Janco in the No. 66 Lamborghini, which debuted in the season-opener at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in May.
Following his sweep of the weekend at Watkins Glen, Shinya Michimi has opened up a considerable 30-point lead in the Pro Drivers’ Championship over Corey Lewis, who will again be absent this weekend as Change Racing only enters two cars.
Michimi will be seeking his fourth consecutive victory, in what’s been a dominant season so far for the Prestige Performance driver.
A three-way tie for the lead in the Pro/Am class has developed between Brandon Gdovic and the pairing of Trent Hindman and Craig Duerson following brake issues that forced the No. 10 Prestige Lamborghini out of Race 2 at The Glen.
Damon Ockey (US RaceTronics) and Ross Chouest (DXDT) lead the AM and LB Cup classes, respectively, heading into the weekend.
Practice at the four-mile circuit kicks off on Friday, with the pair of 50-minute races set for Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.
