NTE Sport will make its Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America debut, with the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship squad to field a new Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO2 for Jeff Courtney.

Courtney will make his debut in the No. 42 Lamborghini in the Am class.

Though he has yet to acquire any seat time in the Super Trofeo car, Courtney has almost 20 years of motorsport experience under his belt.

His sports car racing experience ranges from the Panoz Racing Series to Speed World Challenge and the Grand-Am Challenge in the early 2000s.

In recent years, he has continued to race in IMSA-sanctioned series, and in 2018 became the Pirelli World Challenge GTS Sprint Champion.

“I am looking forward to joining Paul and the entire NTE Team at Laguna Seca,” said Courtney. “This was a very last-minute deal for me, but I am confident the NTE squad will get me up to speed quickly. I am excited to drive in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Series.

“I have driven a lot of race cars over the years but I have never even sat in the Lamborghini so I expect my learning curve to be steep in a really competitive field.

“I am really looking forward to the challenge and driving this cool race car. To add to that, I have not been to this great racetrack in a very long time so it will be fun to get reacquainted with the circuit as well.”

Team owner Paul Mata added: “We’re looking forward to having Jeff join us this weekend at WeatherTech Raceway.

“He’s a very experienced driver and we know he’ll do great in what will be a very competitive field. I’ve been working on an NTE program in Super Trofeo for some time, and I’m looking forward to getting this season started.

“We’re proud to have Lamborghini Dallas on board and are looking forward to fighting for some wins.”

NTE’s WeatherTech Championship Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo GTD entry, meanwhile, will be driven by Jayden Conwright and Marco Holzer this weekend.
