Super Trofeo: Season opener at Monza
Blancpain and Lamborghini have confirmed the continuation in Europe of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo for the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
The one-make racing series visits circuits across Europe including the challenging Paul Ricard in France and Spa Francorchamps in Belgium, as drivers compete at the wheel of 570hp V10 Lamborghini Super Trofeo race cars.
The 2012 series kicks off at the renowned Italian circuit of Monza, Italy at the season opener on the 14th/15th April.
Swiss luxury brand, Blancpain, the oldest watch manufacturer in the world, continues its sponsorship in Europe. Blancpain has sponsored the competition since it’s inception in 2009.
Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini said: "We are delighted to start a new season of the Super Trofeo and are honoured to continue our collaboration with Blancpain. The Super Trofeo has had a remarkable rise since its launch in 2008, drawing more and more teams, drivers and VIP guests from all over Europe.”
The number of cars on the grid is expected to increase to over 15. New teams from Great Britain (except for the race in Monza), Germany and France will enrich the number of cars lined up in what promises to be an exciting season of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series.
At every race, VIP cars featuring the official Lamborghini red livery will allow journalists and famous drivers to take turns driving with Lamborghini test drivers who include both Giorgio Sanna, champion of last season's GT Cup, Italian, and Mario Fasanetto.
