Lamborghini Super Trofeo All Set For Spa

by Joe Finnerty

The single-make Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo heads to Spa-Francorchamps this weekend as the championship hits the second half of the season with the Autovitesse Garage R Affolter team leading the way.

The Swiss team is in pole position with Cedric Leimer atop the Pro-Am Driver's Standings after three podiums at Paul Ricard last time out and teammates Herve Leimer and Laurent Jenny providing great support in the constructor’s title.

Fabio Babini leads the Pro-Drivers' Standings in the all-wheeldrive series and is hoping to extend his 34-point lead over Reiter's Peter Kox. Babini's Italian teammate Matteo Zucchi is second in the Pro-Am title hunt, just seven points behind Leimer.

Gravity Charouz Racing will also be expecting a good performance in the Ardennes forest after they took their maiden victory at Paul Ricard followed by a consecutive win sealing a memorable double for drivers Filip Sladecka and Gerhard Tweraser and the team.

Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini's R&D director, said: “We've already had three thrilling race weekends in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo and Spa-Francorchamps is famous for being one of the most challenging circuits in the world.

“The drivers all are very excited to be racing there. It's certainly one of the highlights of the series' calendar.”

The Super Trofeo, lightweight versions of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4, will race as part of the Blancpain Endurance Series that is competing at the legendary Belgian circuit this weekend (July 28-30).
