MotoGP star Andrea Dovizioso will be a VIP guest starter in next weekend’s Lamborghini World Final in Valencia, having been named to drive the No. 100 Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo in both the sixth round of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Europe Series and World Final at the Spanish track.
The 30-year-old Italian, who is an official Ducati Team MotoGP rider, has 258 World GP starts, and holds the the top speed record at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, at 335.9 km/h, achieved last year.
“I’m really happy to have this experience with Lamborghini,” Dovizioso said. “This is the first race on one of their cars in such an important championship.
“I’ve just finished the MotoGP season in Valencia and honestly, I don’t know what this track will be like with the four wheels, anyway I can’t wait!
“I will be racing for four days, therefore I’m sure I’ll enjoy it very much. I have no idea who my opponents will be, but certainly the best ones of the American, Asian and European championships.”
Dovizioso’s car will be run by Lamborghini Squadra Corse in the Pro-Am class, in both the Europe and World Final races, with a special livery commemorating the birth centenary of Ferruccio Lamborghini.
The Italian rider has prior experience of the Huracán, having taken part in the Lamborghini Track Accademia at Imola last May, alongside fellow MotoGP rider Casey Stoner.
The final round of the Super Trofeo seasons for Europe, Asia and North America are set for Dec. 2, with the World Final on Dec. 3-4.
