Sepang hosts Super Trofeo Asia
Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia returns to Sepang this weekend for the first two races of the 12 fixtures this season. This year’s Super Trofeo Malaysian stop will take place the same weekend as the inaugural round of the Blancpain GT Series Asia, where Lamborghini will also be competing with a number of Huracán GT3.
The return of previous Super Trofeo champion and local hero Afiq Yazid, as well as veterans like Sri Lanka’s Dilantha Malagamuwa and the reigning AM champion Indonesian Andrew Haryanto, guarantee an intense competition for both old hands and rookies alike.
Another frontrunner will be Dutch Rik Breukers, who claimed the Middle East PRO title for GDL team. Armaan Ebrahim will represent Dilango Racing. Many European teams will take part: among them Leipert Motorsport, FFF Racing Team and Lazarus.
The 2017 Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo remains unchanged from last year, adopting the same V10 direct injection engine mounted on the road car, managed by a Motec control unit that delivers a maximum output of 620hp.
At Sepang International Circuit, Round 1 will start at 12:30 pm (MYT) Saturday, April 8, with Round 2 on Sunday at 14:10 pm. Qualifying begins at 17:50 pm on Friday April 7.
The Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia this year will visite Thailand’s Buriram International Circuit, Suzuka, Fuji International Speedway and Shanghai. The sixth event and final two rounds of the season will be at the Imola circuit in Italy.
