Lamborghini Super Trofeo Gears Up For New Season

1 Mins read

The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series returns to the track next weekend (24-25 April) supporting the highly popular DTM series, with a mixture of gentlemen and professional racers battling for position in the 570bhp lightweight Gallardo LP 560-4s.

Entries confirmed so far include 2009 runners up Reiter Engineering who return to the series once again looking to take the win. Swiss team Black Bull Racing will make their debut in Hockenheim.

2009 Pro-Am Drivers' Champion Claudio Rossetto will be back to defend his title, having secured seven race victories for team Petri Corse last year.

“I had a fantastic 2009 season,” said Rossetto. “The competition was tough but we persevered and managed to fend off our closest rivals to take the Pro-Am Driver, Pro Driver and Team titles. Racing in a Lamborghini is a fantastic experience, and having had such an amazing time last year, we will come back even more confident and motivated for 2010.”

“The second Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo season is highly anticipated,” said Lamborghini's Director of Brand and Design, Manfred Fitzgerald. “We're excited to see new teams join the Super Trofeo family for 2010, while competitors from last season will return to defend their honours. The on-track battles were extremely close in 2009, and we're set for another thrilling season ahead.”

Marc A. Hayek, President and CEO of Blancpain, the series' title sponsor, commented: “This second season looks eventful and I’m really looking forward to it, starting with the first races in Hockenheim, where the circuit is extremely technical and very fast. I am confident about the results, which we’ll be trying to improve still further this year.”
