O’Gara Motorsport’s pair of Richard Antinucci and Edoardo Piscopo, in their No. 50 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2, will lead the field for the final two Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America races of the season, Friday’s Rounds 11 and 12 from Sebring International Raceway.
The No. 50 car set a 2:01.532 as the best time to set the grid for Round 11, and the time was bettered by a tenth for Round 12, down to a 2:01.455.
Antinucci holds a 26-point advantage over Enrique Bernoldi of Prestige Performance, 132-106, heading into Friday’s Round 11. He just needs to finish the two rounds to score enough points to win the championship.
Bernoldi, who drives the No. 1 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2, will start from 24th and 23rd in the two races after failing to set a time. Bernoldi broke a driveshaft on his second lap out, and needed to be brought back to the pit lane.
The No. 07 STR and No. 14 BAD Lambo Racing entries will start second and third in Round 11, and the No. 10 Prestige Performance and No. 29 Change Racing entries will start second and third in Round 12.
The No. 15 Paragon Competition Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 of Joe Chan and Paul Taylor did not set a time following an earlier accident in practice.
Daniel Zampieri and Roman Mavlanov (2:00.986, Race 1) and Patric Niederhauser (2:01.664, Race 2) were fastest in the European series.
Zampieri’s 2:00.986 stood as the best qualifying time of the day, across all classes, and edged Niederhauser by just 0.005 of a second.
Meanwhile Yuan Bo and Edoardo Liberati (2:01.997, Race 1) and Afiq Yazid (2:04.056, Race 2) were fastest in the Asian series.
