Lamborghini Street Race Set To Be Highlight Of The Kuala Lumpur City Grand Prix

Automobili Lamborghini, the Italian super-sports carmaker famous for visionary automotive design, and the luxury Swiss watchmaker with a passion for excellence, Blancpain, are to join forces again. Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia returns to Malaysia for the fourth time in as many years, for the third stop of this year's series. The previous round saw the iconic Huracán battling through Typhoon Nangka at the Shanghai International Circuit, this time, drivers and teams will pit their machines against one another on a thrilling and unprecedented street track, at the Kuala Lumpur City Grand Prix.

The Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo will show its road holding abilities in a first of its kind street race through the heart of Kuala Lumpur's inner city. The route runs down Jalan Ampang, making a hard left onto Jalan Sultan Ismail, looping back around to Jalan Perak with a hard right onto Jalan P Ramlee, with the checkered line a stone's throw from the instantly recognizable Petronas Towers.

The Kuala Lumpur street race will be followed by world class international circuits, the first at Indonesia's Sentul, then the semi-final in Shanghai, before heading to the America's Sebring for the World Final in November, where the winning competitors from the European, American and Asian series will race head to head for the final podium.

The 2015 season sees the final outing of the Gallardo, the most successful road model in Lamborghini's history to date, and the debut of the Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo, setting a new benchmark for the series.
