Ever wanted to compete in a high level motorsport event but never been able to find a sponsorship deal to get big teams interested in hiring you? Well, Lamborghini has the answer for you as it’s opening up its North American Blancpain Super Trofeo racing series to private racers who hold an FIA-accredited racing license for the International Motor Sport Association with a C or D rating.
Of course, that’s not all it entails as it’ll cost each entrant a cool $35,000 per race weekend which includes a race-ready 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo as well as the necessary trackside hospitality experience. A Lamborghini North American Blancpain Super Trofeo race weekend consists of two 60-minute practise sessions, 40 minutes of qualifying and two-50 minute races meaning it’ll set you back $8,700 per hour to hire out a 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo racer.
Lamborghini’s decision to enter the Super Trofeo series in North America earlier this year means it now operates in Europe, Asia and America and is set to piggyback other North American racing series such as Grand Am, ALMS, IMSA and IndyCar.
Here is an easy-to-read overview of the 2013 schedule for the North American Super Trofeo racing series:
• June 15-16: Mid-Ohio with Grand-Am
• July 5-6: Lime Rock with ALMS
• August 17-18: Kansas City with Grand-Am
• September 7-8: Calabogie (Canada) with IMSA
• October 5-6 Virginia International Raceway with ALMS
• October 18-19: Fontana with IndyCar
