A field of nearly 60 cars from Europe, North America and Asia are set to take part in this weekend’s Lamborghini World Final in Valencia.

Circuit Ricardo Tormo plays host to the fourth edition of the World Final, following previous visits to Vallelunga (2013), Sepang (2014) and Sebring (2015), in what’s shaping up to be a thrilling end-of-year fight for the world’s fastest single-make series.

ENTRY LIST: Round 6 and World Final

The weekend will also feature the season-ending rounds for all three continental championships, prior to the pair of World Championship rounds on Saturday and Sunday.

Following a dominant season that’s delivered six wins, Shinya Michimi has already locked up the North American Pro championship in his Prestige Performance-run Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo.

Prestige’s Craig Duerson and Trent Hindman, meanwhile, currently lead the Pro-Am class and could make it a double championship for Lamborghini Paramus, with the duo currently holding a 10-point lead over DAC Motorsports’ Brandon Gdovic.

In the Am class, Damon Ockey, of US Racetronics, has a 13-point lead over Change Racing’s Luis Rodriguez Jr., with Ross Chouest already having clinched the Lamborghini Cup, thanks to nine class victories in ten races for the DXDT Racing driver.

Of note, former series champion Richard Antinucci makes his return to the Pro class, in the No. 116 Change Racing entry.

While a total of 12 cars are provisionally entered from the North American contingent, 37 Huracáns are due to take part in Super Trofeo Europe, with all four class titles still yet to be decided.

There’s a four-way fight for the Pro class title, with Dennis Lind heading to Valencia with a six-point lead over Harald Schlegelmilch, and both Vito Postiglione and Martin Kodric also still in with a shot of the title.

2015 World Final winner Patrick Kujala and Swiss driver Adrian Amstutz, meanwhile lead the Pro-Am class over 18-year-old Rik Breukers, who has taken the championship by storm in his rookie year.

Eight drivers remain in contention for the Am class title, led by Amir Krenzia, with Gerard Van der Horst and William Van Deyzen seperated by only a single point in the new-for-2016 Lamborghini Cup class.

Nine Huracáns are entered in Super Trofeo Asia this weekend, although the overall championship has already gone the way of Toshiyuki Ochiai and Afiq Yazid, who locked up the title last time out in Fuji.

While Supachai Weeraborwornpong has also clinched the Lamborghini Cup, both the Pro-Am and Am titles remain up for grabs in the two season-ending races, which will be run in combination with the North American series on Friday.

Super Trofeo Europe will be split between Pro/Pro-Am and Am/Cup for its two title-deciding rounds as well, with all teams assembling for the pair of World Final rounds on Saturday and Sunday.

Practice and qualifying gets underway on Thursday.
