If you’re a fan of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America Championship Series, this announcement should be music to your ears. Lamborghini and the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) have announced an extension of their partnership for another four years. Part of this extended partnership calls for the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America series to continue under IMSA sanctions.

As far as one-make racing series are concerned, the Blancpain Super Trofeo Series is as good as it gets, so it’s definitely great to hear that we’ll be seeing it for the next four years. The 2015 season is particularly special because it will be the first time we get to see the Huracan Super Trofeo in action.

The arrival of the Huracan Super Trofeo means that we’re gonna see it and the Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo share the grid in the 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo season, albeit with separate standings. Still, that’s something to look forward to.

As for the season itself, the 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America event calendar was also recently unveiled with 10 rounds being raced at five venues across the U.S., including Laguna Seca, Watkins Glen, Road Atlanta, and the Circuit of the Americas. A World Final has also been scheduled to take place in November 2015 with competitors from all three global Blancpain Super Trofeo Series — Europe, Asia and North America — vying to became the world champion.

Why It Matters

We’re big fans of the Blancpain Super Trofeo Series, so you can understand why we’re excited to see the Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo make its racing debut next season.

It’s also amazing how the series has grown in the short time that it’s been around. Remember, the Blancpain Super Trofeo Series only made its debut in 2013. In that short time, it has became one of the most exciting one-make racing series in the world. The fact that it’s closer to home for a lot of us here in the U.S. adds to its already strong appeal.

The 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America begins on May 1, 2015 at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. It will conclude on October 3, 2015 at Road Atlanta, a month before the World Final is held at a yet-to-be-determined venue.

The Lamborghini Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo made its debut in August 2014 at the Monterey Car Week, and it’s arrival marked the next phase in the surging popularity of the Blancpain Super Trofeo Series.

One look at the race car and you can immediately tell that it means serious business, something that we should all keep in mind when it begins racing in the series next year.

While it does come with the same 5.2-liter, V-10 engine as the standard Huracan, the Huracan Super Trofeo received a bevy of aerodynamic improvements and computer upgrades to not only improve its output to close to 611 horsepower, but also make it 300 pounds lighter than the standard model. It’s also 150 lighter lighter than the Gallardo Super Trofeo, which is really impressive considering how quick those Gallardos were.

We’ll get to see how fast the Huracan Super Trofeo is when it lines up on the race track at the start of the 2015 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America Series. It’s still more than seven months away, but we’re already getting amped up this early.
