NOLA Motorsports Park is poised to host the largest-ever field in Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America history, with 34 cars on the entry list for this weekend’s third and fourth rounds of the season.

The increase in entries, over the 32 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO2 cars that took part in the opening races at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, includes the season debut of ANSA Motorsports and several driver changes and reclassifications in the single-make series.

Ex-Formula 1 and Formula E driver Nelson Piquet Jr. will make his first start of the season in the No. 30 ANSA entry in the Pro class, which also sees Wayne Taylor Racing’s Jordan Missig lime up alongside Aidan Yoder after missing the Laguna rounds due to a clashing racing event.

While there’s eight Pro entries, the Pro-Am grid will see six cars, including the No. 2 Dream Racing Motorsport entry that’s been moved from LB Cup due to the addition of Dario Capitanio to the lineup alongside Alan Grossberg.

Laguna Race 2 winner Slade Stewart has been moved from LB Cup to Am in his No. 14 Flying Lizard Motorsports Lamborghini, with the California-based team only fielding two of its three entries this weekend.

ANSA team owner Patrick-Otto Madsen will return to competition in the Am class in his No. 99 entry alongside Jordan O’Brien.

A total of series-high 14 cars are entered in the Am class, with six entries to fight out for top honors in LB Cup.

The No. 38 TPC Racing Lamborghini has been moved to LB Cup due to the absence of Trevor Andrusko, with Scott Schmidt set to drive solo this weekend.

NTE Sport, which was present at Laguna with an Am class entry for Jeff Courtney, will not be making the trip to New Orleans.

NOLA replaces Ozarks International Raceway on the schedule, which will also see SRO America’s Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS and its associated series in action over the weekend.

Super Trofeo action kicks off with a pair of unofficial test sessions 0n Thursday, followed by practice on Friday and qualifying Saturday morning, prior to the first 50-minute race of the weekend at 4:30 p.m. CT.

Race 2 gets underway Sunday at 9:45 a.m. CT, with both rounds to be streamed on Peacock, and IMSA Radio.
