The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) has extended its partnership with Lamborghini to continue to sanction the automaker’s Blancpain Super Trofeo North America races through to the 2018 season.
The contract extension comes not long after Lamborghini unveiled the new Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo racecar, which will make its racing debut in the 2015 Super Trofeo season.
Previously, drivers only competed in the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo car, however the new two-wheel drive Huracan will be joining the grid next year. Both Gallardo Super Trofeo and Huracan Super Trofeo cars will race alongside each other in 2015, but they will compete in separate classes.
The schedule for 2015’s Super Trofeo events has also been revealed. The season will open May 1-3 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, followed by the second round at Watkins Glen International on June 26-28. The third round will see the series head to Virginia International Raceway on August 21-23, followed by Circuit of the Americas on Sept 17-19 for the fourth round. The season will commence at Road Atlanta during Petit Le Mans on October 1-3.
Once the different Super Trofeo series in North America, Europe and Asia come to a conclusion, the top drivers from each series are invited to the World Final, which will decide the Super Trofeo Series world champion. A date and location for the World Final are expected to be revealed sometime next season.
