Prestige Performance and Wayne Taylor Racing has revealed its full-season lineup for the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America series, including the first all-female driver pairing in the championship’s history.
A total of four cars have been entered for the season, which kicks off next weekend at Circuit of The Americas.
Open-wheel ace Pippa Mann will team up with Jackie Heinricher in the No. 57 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo, which will compete for Pro-Am class honors.
While Mann is set for her Super Trofeo debut, Heinricher took part in the single-make championship last year with DAC Motorsports.
Trent Hindman, who claimed the Pro-Am title in 2016, steps up to the Pro class in the No. 1 Lamborghini, alongside Italian driver Riccardo Agostini, with Alex Popow and Michele Beretta set to share driving duties of the No. 2 car, also in the top class.
Drivers for the fourth Prestige Lamborghini have yet to be announced.
The Indianapolis-based team claimed a series-high four titles last year, including the Pro class drivers’ championship with Shinya Michimi, who is not currently part of Prestige’s 2017 lineup.
“We are so proud to be a part of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Series and to continue to support its vision for motorsports,” said Mark Laino, Race Program Manager, Prestige Performance.
“Our partnership with Wayne Taylor Racing has truly allowed us to build a winning platform for drivers, both professional and amateur.
“We are committed to this program, its growth and are looking forward to a successful 2017, both on and off the track, for our customers and our organizations.”
This year’s effort sees increased visibility from Wayne Taylor Racing, which has laid out ambitions of expanding into the GT Daytona class of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with Lamborghini.
“Wayne Taylor Racing is excited to step into the 2017 season with such a great list of drivers and to have David Wagener returning on our engineering side,” said team manager Travis Houge. “We are looking forward to continuing the success of last season.
“Similar to our other racing endeavors, we have worked hard to build a program that not only wins races but also builds lasting and successful partnerships. We feel we have found that with the Lamborghini Group.”
