The eighth season of Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America is set to kick off this weekend at Road America, with a total of 12 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evos set to do battle on the high-speed Wisconsin circuit.
It is the fifth IMSA-sanctioned series to resume following the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, which has affected grid sizes and caused multiple schedule changes.
Originally set to open the season at Barber Motorsports Park in April, Rounds 1 and 2 will be played out during the NASCAR Xfinity Series weekend.
Defending series champions Change Racing has entered a record five cars for the season opener, with 2019 Pro champion Corey Lewis set to take on the Pro-Am class this year alongside Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA graduate Victor Gomez.
Bryan Sellers and Madison Snow, who have missed the last three IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship races due to the pausing of Paul Miller Racing’s Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo program, are confirmed in Change’s Pro class entry for Road America.
Other Pro class efforts include the recently announced pairing of Stuart Middelton and Stevan McAleer at Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing, as well as 2019 runner-up Brandon Gdovic, who will drive solo in the No. 46 Precision Performance Motorsports Lamborghini.
Leo Lamelas will also fight for overall honors, taking advantage of a rules’ change for 2020 that allows single-driver lineups again in the Pro class. Lamelas will be part of the three-car US RaceTronics effort.
Reigning Pro-Am class champion Jacob Eidson will have a new co-driver in the returning Steven Aghakhani, with both drivers remaining at the Shane Seneviratne-led squad.
An additional entry will be fielded by the California-based team for series debutant John Hennessy, who will compete for LB Cup honors alongside Sydney McKee of Prestige/WTR as well as Change entries for Randy Sellari and Matt Dicken.
McKay Snow, the younger brother of Madison, completes Change’s lineup for Road America and will face off with Lewis/Gomez, Aghakhani/Eidson as well as Prestige/WTR’s Andrea Amici and Ashton Harrison in Pro-Am.
Track action begins on Thursday afternoon with the first of two practice sessions, followed by qualifying on Friday afternoon and Race 1 at 5:20 p.m. ET.
The second 50-minute race gets underway Saturday at 10:15 a.m.
Both races will be streamed live on the Lamborghini Squadra Corse Facebook page as well as on IMSA.tv, featuring commentary from the IMSA Radio staff.
