The Super Trofeo Europe is back! The ninth edition of the famous single-brand Lamborghini championship begins this weekend at Monza (April 21, 22 and 23) – after the opening round of the championship, the Huracán Super Trofeo race cars will take each other on around some of the best circuits in Europe: Silverstone, Paul Ricard, Spa-Francorchamps, the Nürburgring, and Imola, host to the World Final.
This year’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe will once again feature four driver classes – PRO, PRO-AM, AM and Lamborghini Cup – with a range of high-level international talent. The PRO class focuses its attention in particular on young drivers, with Monza playing host to a direct match-up between three illustrious racing heirs – eighteen-year-old Brazilian Pedro Piquet (whose father Nelson won three F1 titles between 1981 and 1987), and Venezuelan Johnny Cecotto Jr., son of ex-F1 driver and motorbiking champion Johnny Alberto, racing for Bonaldi Motorsport. The third is seventeen-year-old Jonathan Cecotto, younger brother of Johnny Cecotto Jr., on his debut with Imperiale Racing alongside expert Vito Postiglione.
Other notable drivers in the PRO class include Rik Breukers and Axcil Jefferies (18 and 22 years of age), winners of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East with GDL Racing at the beginning of the year. Finally, there are two new drivers on the Antonelli Motorsport team – Loris Spinelli, 2015 PRO-AM champion, and twenty-four-year-old Canadian Mikaël Grenier, with experience in Indy Lights in the States, making his debut in the Super Trofeo.
In the PRO-AM class, some of the most noteworthy team members hail from Konrad Motorsport, with Germans Hendrik Still and Paul Scheuschner, winners of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East in the PRO-AM category. The Antonelli Motorsport team features eighteen-year-old Kikko Galbiati, who made his debut last season at Valencia and immediately achieved victory in the AM class, and who will share the wheel with Davide Roda from the Middle-East series.
The AM class will see the return of Eugenio Amos and Mirko Zanardini, while in the Lamborghini Cup Dutchman Gerard Van der Horst will look to defend his 2016 title.
The first of the two races, with a duration of 50 minutes, is scheduled for Saturday April 22 at 3:00 p.m., with race two setting off on Sunday 23 at 11:20 a.m. Follow the races via live streaming at squadracorse.lamborghini.com/live-streaming.
