More than 60 cars are set to take part in the Lamborghini World Final at Vallelunga this weekend.

The event, which takes place on Nov. 15-18, has been the annual season-closer for the Italian manufacturer’s one-make series since 2013.

This year’s edition marks the first World Final involving the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo and a return to the 2.5-mile Vallelunga circuit after four years away.

It will decide the champions from Lamborghini’s three regional competitions held in North America, Europe and Asia, as well as confirming the best crews overall.

The final two races of the European, North American and Asian championships will be held on Friday, while the three series will be mixed and grouped by class for the World Final races on Saturday and Sunday.

Class Titles to Be Won

Following a double-podium weekend last time out at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, Change Racing’s Corey Lewis and Madison Snow head into the North American title decider with a seven-point lead over two Pro crews on equal scores.

A retirement from the most recent race put the No. 50 US RaceTronics pairing of Tyler Proto and Edoardo Piscopo on the same amount as Brandon Gdovic and Shinya Michimi in the No. 46. PPM car.

A total of 14 cars are listed in the North American field, which also includes the title fight for Am class honors between Dream Racing’s Ryan Hardwick and US RaceTronics’ Damon Ockey who are separated by six points.

The North American grid will share the track with Super Trofeo Asia, which has FFF Racing Team by ACM drivers Andrea Amici and Artur Janosz leading the championship.

In Super Trofeo Europe, all four available class titles are up for grabs heading into the final.

In the Pro bracket, 2016 World Final runner-up Vito Postiglione and his co-driver Karol Basz have a 10-point cushion over Giacomo Altoe, who is joined this weekend by reigning Italian GT champion Daniel Zampieri.

The European Pro-Am class is currently led by already-crowned North American Pro-Am champions Loris Spinelli and Juan Perez, while three other crews can also take the prize at Vallelunga.

Spinelli and Perez are nine points up on Lorenzo Bontempelli and Emanuele Zonzini, with Japan’s Takashi Kasi and the Danish team composed of Simon Larsson and 2016 World Final champion Dennis Lind both 18 points off the leaders.

Both the Am and Lamborghini Cup (LC) category European champions are also yet to be decided.

All the weekend’s races, which are 50 minutes in length, will be streamed live on the Lamborghini Squadra Corse website.
