If you have a passion for racing, lots of money and a spare Lamborghini you should go racing in the most talked about race since the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia. Eminent Century and JH Italia have unveiled the Team Lamborghini Kuala Lumpur JH Italia race-car which will be participating in the upcoming one-make-race series, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia. The team will be represented by driver, Rizal Ashram Ramli, who has had over 20 years of experience in motorsports and has won numerous titles in both local and overseas races.
Following three successful seasons in Europe since 2009, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Championship will for the first time run in Malaysia as part of the Asian tour. To be held at Sepang International Circuit on May 26 & 27, 2012, this is the first leg for the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia race.
The Lamborghini Super Trofeo, is a lightweight version of the Gallardo LP560-4, boasting a power output of 560hp from its V10 engine. Subsequent races will be held in Fuji, Ordos, Zhuhai, Penbay and Shanghai for the Grand Finale in November. The 2012 season will see teams from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and mainland China push the raw power of the Super Trofeo to its limits.
The Asia racing series is open to Gentlemen drivers who will compete in two separate 50 minutes races at each stop, following 35 minutes long qualifying races determining the drivers’ starting positions in the rolling start. Each team can comprise up to two drivers, who will have more than extreme-speed on their agenda, as a compulsory change of driver from minute 20 to minute 30 into the race will require carefully thought-out strategies for teams of mixed experience to secure victory.
