More than 50 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO2s are set to assemble at Circuit de La Sarthe this weekend as Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe celebrates its 200th race start in series history.

The championship will host a pair of 45-minute race as part of the support bill for the 92nd edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, across Thursday and Saturday.

A single, 45-minute Free Practice session on Wednesday will be followed by qualifying later that evening, which has been split into two, 20-minute portions.

BDR Competition with Grupo Prom driver Amaury Bonduel comes into the weekend as the points leader after completing a weekend sweep on home soil during the second round at Spa-Francorchamps.

He holds a 9.5-point lead over the Target Racing duo of Oliver Soederstroem and Largim Ali, who were the only drivers other than Bonduel to win a race thus far this season.

Leonardo Caglioni and Enzo Geraci sit third for Oregon Team, just three points head of Leipert Motorsport pairing Sebastian Balthasar and Jacob Riegel.

Benedetto Strignano sits fifth but will be driving solo this weekend as full-season co-driver Alberto di Folco is unavailable due to clashing commitments with the Italian GT Championship.

Micanek Motorsport pairing Bronislav Formanek and Stefan Rosina lead the Pro-Am class heading into the weekend, narrowly ahead of Boutsen VDS drivers Renaud Kuppens and Roee Meyuhas with Claude-Yves Gosselin and Joran Leneutre in third.

Finally, Pietro Perolini and Davide Roda (Oregon Team) spearhead the Am-class standings, while Holger Harmsen sits just half a point ahead of Paolo Biglieri and Petar Matic in LB Cup.

In addition to the first appearance for the series at Le Mans, this weekend represents a significant milestone for the brand, which will celebrate the 200th race start since its debut at Adria Raceway in 2009.

Since then, it has competed with five different iterations of Lamborghini single-make machinery, starting with the Gallardo Super Trofeo from 2009 to 2012 all the way to the current Huracan Super Trofeo EVO2 which debuted in 2022.

Notably, a Lamborghini one-make series has been part of the Le Mans support bill before, as Super Trofeo Europe’s predecessor, the Super Sport Trophy for Diablo SV-Rs, raced at the Circuit de la Sarthe in 1996.
