Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo Debuts At Sepang Race

Seven months ago, Lamborghini lifted the veil off its latest race car. But it wasn’t until this weekend that the new Huracan Super Trofeo Evo marked its race debut.

That took place on Saturday at Sepang. The circuit is home of the Malaysian Grand Prix, and hosted the first round of the Super Trofeo Asia series this weekend.

Based on the model that debuted in 2014, the new Evo version pulls up closer to its GT3 counterpart. Developed with Dallara, the new aero package improves stability while decreasing drag. The result is a Monza lap time a full second and a half quicker than the existing Super Trofeo, the owners of which will have the option to upgrade.

The Evo’s debut coincides with the start of the 10th consecutive season of Lamborghini’s Super Trofeo. Since the first running of the series in Europe, the automaker calculates that 755 drivers from 59 countries have participated in 279 races held at 42 circuits in 18 countries around the world. Together, they’ve accounted for 32,000 kilometers (nearly 20,000 miles) of racing over the course of 211 hours, consisting of 6,461 laps with 4,155 pit stops, spending 41,000 Pirelli tires.

Those are some staggering statistics, but the Raging Bull isn’t quitting any time soon. With the Asia series now up and running, the European series will kick off at Monza next weekend and the North American series at Mid Ohio on the first weekend of May (the Middle East series is held over the winter “off-season”). Each will hold five double rounds before culminating with the World Final event, set to be held in November at Vallelunga.
