Corey Lewis led the way in the opening day of track activity for the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America series at Watkins Glen, in a mixed-condition Thursday ahead of the weekend’s third and fourth rounds of the season.
Lewis reeled off a 1:59.146 lap time in his No. 29 Change Racing Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo in the dry afternoon session, which was some 20 seconds faster than the quickest lap set in the rain-soaked morning session.
“Practice 2, finally got some running in, practice 1 we elected not to go out, it just wasn’t beneficial for us,” Lewis said. “We are happy with the car, as the session went it got drier and drier so the times just continued to drop.”
Pro class drivers Trent Hindman and Jonathan Cecotto in the No. 1 Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus (1:59.278, 102.617 mph) and Taylor Proto and Edoardo Piscopo (2.00.095, 101.919 mph) in the US RaceTronics, Lamborghini Beverly Hills rounded out the afternoon’s top-three.
Only six of the eighteen entered cars turned laps on Thursday morning, led by the No. 09 US RaceTronics Lamborghini of Damon Ockey at a 2:20.883.
With the only two scheduled practice sessions behind them, the teams will now look ahead to Friday’s action.
Qualifying for both races will begin at 9:30 a.m. with Race 1 on Friday at 4 p.m. ET and Race 2 on Saturday at 10:20 a.m. ET. Both races from Watkins Glen can be streamed on IMSA.TV and squadracorse.lamborghini.com/super-trofeo/north-america.
