Two weeks after its season opener at Road America, Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America is back for its second doubleheader of the 2020 season.
Sixteen Lamborghini Super Trofeo Huracán EVOs are entered for two, 50-minute races at VIRginia International Raceway in Alton, Va. and impressively, each of the four classes sees an increase in car count from Rounds 1 and 2.
The first race for Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America takes place on Saturday, Aug. 22 at 11:50 a.m. ET, while Race 2 is scheduled for Sunday at 12:55 p.m. Both races can be streamed live on IMSA.com/TVLive with IMSA Radio commentary covering each session throughout the weekend on IMSARadio.com.
Here’s a closer look at the entry list:
- ANSA Motorsports will be making its debut in Super Trofeo at VIR with a two-car effort split between the Pro and ProAm categories. Neil Alberico and Sergio Jimenez will share driving duties in the No. 13 Lamborghini Broward Lamborghini in the Pro class, while Trick Madsen and Danny Formal are entered in the No. 99 Lamborghini also for Lamborghini Broward.
- Another driver yet to be named will join the Am class in a new No. 53 Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Greenwich entry. At Road America, Victor Gomez IV was the sole competitor in the category after a last-minute change to Am in the No. 29 Change Racing, Lamborghini Charlotte entry. This would be the fourth Wayne Taylor Racing entry – one in each class – with the three others running under the Prestige Performance WTR banner.
- Meanwhile, the LB Cup class sees a boost to five cars at VIR. Tom Kerr joins the class in the No. 74 Lamborghini for TPC Racing and Lamborghini Sterling. Kerr is a familiar face to those in the IMSA paddock having previously competed in Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama as recently as three weeks ago during the series’ opener at Road America.
- Brandon Gdovic has been a busy driver in recent weeks. After not only running in Super Trofeo two weeks ago at Road America and again this weekend at VIR, he competed in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race on the Daytona International Speedway road course this past Saturday. Gdovic worked his way inside the top 15 at Daytona, but an incident downgraded him to a 28th-place result. He’ll be back behind the No. 46 Precision Performance Motorsports, Lamborghini Palm Lamborghini at VIR, where he coincidentally won Race 2 in 2019.
- The No. 6 Lamborghini of Steven Aghakhani and Jacob Eidson likely will be one to watch at VIR. Driving for US RaceTronics, Lamborghini Beverly Hills, the duo is tied for first in the Pro point standings after a Race 2 victory at Road America. And while Aghakhani won his second race at VIR last year in the Am class, Eidson also was part of the winning lineup in both races at VIR in 2019 competing in the ProAm class.
- It’s been an unexpected start to the season for Leo Lamelas, but the Brazilian driver is adapting to change. Lamelas intended to share the No. 24 US RaceTronics, Lamborghini Westlake Lamborghini with Ron Atapattu for the season in the ProAm class, but Atapattu has been sidelined due to injury. Lamelas will continue on as the solo driver for the foreseeable future as Atapattu recovers from a recent back surgery related to a crash in Barcelona several years ago that unfortunately has been exacerbated by his current fitness routine.
