Lamborghini Huracan Ready For Super Trofeo Racing 2015
The new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo today on track for its first shakedown on the “Piero Taruffi” Vallelunga (ITA) circuit.
Chief Test Driver of Automobili Lamborghini Research and Development Department, Giorgio Sanna, will start the delicate task of fine-tuning the new Super Trofeo race car, along with the two offic ial Lamborghini Squadra Corse test drivers Adrian Zaugg and Fabio Babini, and supported by drivers from the Young Drivers Program.
From 2015, Lamborghini’s newest ‘raging bull’ super sports car, the Huracán, will be the car raced in all of the three Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series (Europe, Asia and North America). Next season’s Series will feature both the Gallardo and the Huracán which will share the grid but will race in different classes.
“The first shakedown is always a very special moment. I’ve followed the development phase step by step in Sant’Agata Bologn ese, and we are all enthusiastic about this very important moment. We have full confidence in both Zaugg and Babini, as well as in the young drivers who will contribute to refining the new car. The new Huracán Super Trofeo will ensure Lamborghini a key role in International motor sport,” commented Giorgio Sanna.
