Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe shines a light on Misano
After taking a clear win at Silverstone in the inaugural race, Jack Bartholomew and 19-year-old newcomer Stuart Middleton lead the Pro category. The Bonaldi Motorsport pair have a two point advantage over Imperiale Racing duo Kikko Galbiati and veteran Vito Postigione. Now on home Galbiati and Postiglione aim for their first win of the season, after claiming a fifth and a second overall place at Silverstone. Team-mates Karol Basz and Bartosz Paziewski have a three-point gap from the lead after dominating the Race 2 in the UK.
With a double Pro-Am victory and an overall podium finish under their belt, Target Racing pair Davide Venditti and Alberto Di Folco lead the category. Shota Abkhazava and Harald Schlegelmilch look for their first victory as well after they twice took second in the opening round for Artline Team Georgia.
AGS Events’ Nicolas Gomar will defend his Am category lead from Raffaele Giannoni. The Frenchman started his 2019 campaign with two victories as the Italian rival took two second places.
In the Lamborghini Cup, brothers Benoît and François Semoulin - both in their first year in the series open to the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo cars under the banner of the Semspeed team - topped the two Silverstone races ahead of three-time champion Gerhard Van der Horst. Reigning world champion Joseph Collado looks for revenge after he collected a double zero in UK.
