The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Europe Breaks All Records: 50 Cars on Grid at Spa Francorchamps

Sant'Agata Bolognese, July 26, 2016 - The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Europe reaches 50 cars, as many will be the Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeos at the start of the fourth round of Spa-Francorchamps this weekend. Now in its eighth edition, the one-make series reserved to the cars of Sant'Agata Bolognese establishes a new record right in one of the circuits richest in charm and history like the Belgian one, which will host the prestigious 24- Hour Race of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup.

After demolishing all previous records, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Europe remains a format with a high approval rating and the one-make series with the largest number of participants in the world, thus offering a constant turnover of protagonists, ranging from young to more experienced drivers; among whom are many important names, such as the one of the German Frank Biela (five victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a DTM title and other successes spice up his prize list), who will debut with the team Dörr Motorsport on the over seven-kilometer-long track in the Ardennes and will share the car with his younger teammate Arne Hoffmeister.

From the "stars" to the real protagonists of a fight more open than ever in all four classes. Starting from the PRO one, which in the previous round at Paul Ricard celebrated the double win of Dennis Lind (a total of three pole positions and four victories since the beginning of the season). The twenty-three-year-old Dane is now leading the standings. The Italian Vito Postiglione (a victory at Silverstone with Imperiale Racing) is only nine points behind him and has four points of advantage over the Croatian Martin Kodric, who is determined not to stop the sequence of podiums, after scoring three third places and a second one in the last four races, with the colors of Bonaldi Motorsport. But the Latvian Harald Schlegelmilch (Artline Team Georgia) is also lying in wait, after scoring a pole position, one second and two third places respectively, whereas the pairing formed by Nicola De Marco and Fabrizio Del Monte (Orange 1 Team Lazarus) aims at getting the top positions as it did during its debut at Monza.
