Sant’Agata Bolognese: Lamborghini Squadra Corse has unveiled the finalized regional Super Trofeo championship calendars for the 2023 season. For Lamborghini’s historic 60th anniversary, a total of 18 rounds will be contested in three series and visiting four continents, while the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Grand Finals celebrates its 10th edition back on Italian soil.
The longest-running Lamborghini one-make championship, Super Trofeo Europe, features a number of changes for the 2023 season. Most notably, is an appearance on an ACO (Automobile Club de l’Ouest) weekend for the first time in the history of the championship, at Imola on the opening weekend in May.
The following four rounds will take place on the well-established SRO Motorsports support bill, with Paul Ricard in France set for round two at the beginning of June.
Then, it’s on to the iconic Spa-Francorchamps – the only circuit to have featured on every Super Trofeo Europe calendar – four weeks later on the weekend of the Spa 24 Hours, before heading back to the Nürburgring after a year away. Valencia, which hosted the Grand Finals in 2016, will be the penultimate round before the final weekend of the year takes place at Vallelunga in Italy.
Across the pond, the 11th season of Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America kicks off in mid-May at one of the most picturesque circuits in the USA, Laguna Seca in California. Continuing its association with IMSA, the regional series then heads to upstate New York a month later for the second round of the year at Watkins Glen.
Following the summer break, Elkhart Lake in Wisconin hosts round three in early August before its traditional visit to Virginia International Raceway, a regular stop on the North American schedule since 2013.
The last stop in the US takes Super Trofeo North America to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the first time ever in September before it joins the regional series in Vallelunga for the season finale.
After three years on the sidelines, Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia makes a welcome return to the one-make agenda and features the most geographically diverse calendar of the three continental championships for 2023.
The season begins at the circuit which started it all for the region back in 2012, Sepang in Malaysia which hosted the first ever round of Super Trofeo Asia.
In June, a new first will be on the itinerary with a visit to The Bend Motorsport Park in Adelaide, Australia.
Then, in July, Fuji Speedway in Japan hosts round three before visiting another new circuit, the Everland Speedway in South Korea making its inaugural appearance.
Before the final round in Vallelunga, Super Trofeo Asia returns to China for the penultimate weekend in Shanghai.
All championships will convene at the Vallelunga circuit on the outskirts of Rome, Italy, for the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Grand Finals which will take place between 18-19 November. Vallelunga has hosted the Grand Finals twice before, in 2013 and 2013, and will become the first venue to hold it for a third time.
