The growing popularity of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America championship is reflected in the series’ first United States television package, with CBS Sports Network providing coverage of all six event weekends and the World Final.
Broadcasts on CBS Sports Network start Wednesday, June 24 with a one-hour show featuring Rounds 1 and 2 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California.
The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America started its third season in May at Laguna Seca with record numbers of cars and drivers, featuring the all-new Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo car. The race purpose-built, 620-horsepower machine includes technology and performance and design lines taken directly from the exciting new Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 street car, which made its global debut in 2014.
“This exciting television partnership with CBS Sports Network is a significant milestone in the growth of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America, providing even more evidence of its increasing popularity with fans and competitors,” Lamborghini Head of Motorsport Giorgio Sanna said. “The comprehensive coverage in consistent time slots will bring home in compelling fashion the thrilling action, talented drivers and incredible Lamborghini race cars of this championship.”
Competition in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America is among the most thrilling of any single-make series in the world. The 620-horsepower, rear-wheel drive Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo car is joined by the previous flagship car of the series, the 570-horsepower, four-wheel drive Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo.
Another important step for the championship in 2015 is the arrival of the World Final in North America for the first time. Drivers from all three global Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championships – Europe, Asia and North America – will contest their respective final rounds Nov. 19-20 at Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Florida, followed by the best drivers in each series competing for world championships in the World Final Nov. 21-22 at Sebring.
Each of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America television programs will be one hour long in Wednesday evening prime-time slots, featuring extensive racing action from both rounds of the event weekend, driver interviews and feature stories.
