Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Announced

World's fastest one-make series
by Thami Masemola

Lamborghini is starting a new racing series for May 2009, named The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo. The series is set to be the world’s fastest one-make series, sponsored by the Swiss watchmaker and title sponsor, and featuring cars based on the manic Gallardo LP 560-4. The car is a lightweight special with a mass of 1300kg (2866 lbs), a heavily reworked chassis, but the same 5.2-litre V10. Power is 419kW/ 570 hp. Slicks are provided by Pirelli, with specialist brakes giving awesome stopping power.

As with any respectable racing league, these cars come safe with a roll cage, but that extra weight doesn’t seem to have slowed it down in any way. The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championship will be run over European race weekends along other titles like DTM and WTCC, commencing 3rd May at Silverstone, UK. It will really give those individuals with a bit of time and money on their hands something else to display in their trophy cabinets other than deer heads.

For a mere €200,000 including tax and entry fee, you and I can enter this series. According to Lamborghini, this fee will not only give you access to one of 30 Super Trofeo cars, which Lamborghini owns (not you), but also trackside assistance. How much does it cost to compete in Formula One these days? Anyway, these permanent four-wheel drive Super Trofeos can be made available to ladies, gentlemen and pro drivers, as well as Lamborghini’s own dealer teams. Space is reserved for one celebrity driver in each race.
