Misano will host the Lamborghini Super Trofeo World Final next year, as part of the Italian manufacturer’s 2020 calendar announcement for the singe-make series.

The Misano event on Oct. 29-30 will signal the endpoint for the three regional Lamborghini Super Trofeo competitions in Europe, Asia and North America.

While the North American schedule was announced back in August, the European and Asian schedules for the coming season were released on Thursday.

No details were confirmed regarding the return of the Middle East series, which is understood to have been dropped for next year.

The Super Trofeo Europe calendar features several changes, including the omissions of Silverstone – which opened the 2019 season – and Zandvoort.

Monza will now serve as the curtain-raiser after a season out, while Paul Ricard has also been re-introduced as the second round in place of Misano, which has moved to the World Final slot.

The series will return to support the Total 24 Hours of Spa, as well as the Blancpain GT races at the Nürburgring and Barcelona – the latter also being a new venue.

The Super Trofeo Asia calendar features largely the same array of circuits as this year, with Sepang, Fuji, Suzuka and Shanghai all returning.

The only key changes are the swapping of the Fuji and Suzuka dates, and the yet-to-be-announced status of the fourth round, which for this season was at Yeongam in South Korea.

All Super Trofeo series will continue to operate under a 50-minute race format with mandatory pit stops and the division of entries into Pro, Pro-Am, Am and Cup classes.

SRO Partnership Extended

Lamborghini has also announced the extension of its single-make series partnership with SRO Motorsports Group for another three years.

All of the 2020 Super Trofeo rounds in Europe and Asia will support the SRO-sanctioned GT World Challenges, while the American series will again support IMSA events.

“The history of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo in Europe has been linked with SRO since the ’90s,” said Lamborghini’s head of motorsport Giorgio Sanna.

“So we are proud to be able to continue to offer our sporting customers a successful platform on the GT racing scene for the next three years, providing our teams and drivers with the best services, and also creating a synergy with the GT3 championships where we stand out.”

SRO founder and CEO Stephane Ratel described the Super Trofeo package as the “ideal complement” to the company’s race weekends.

“I am very pleased that SRO Motorsports Group will extend its long and successful relationship with Lamborghini Super Trofeo into the 2020 season,” he said.

“Our links to this championship stretch back many years, to when we introduced the first Lamborghini one-make series with the Diablo SVR in 1996, and have continued to grow stronger over time.

“I look forward to another exciting season in 2020.”
