The best Lamborgini action with the Super Trofeo from WG


Andrew Henderson was at Watkins Glen last weekend and caught the action from the North American Super Trofeo Lamborghini series and we take a look at what happened with this photo feature.


WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (June 28, 2014) – Kevin Conway picked up his second win of the 2014 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America series in Round 6 Saturday at Watkins Glen International.

Conway earned the top spot in his No. 29 Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo representing Lamborghini Carolinas and fielded by Change Racing with a victory by .916 of a second over teammate Victor Gonzales in the No. 99 Lamborghini.


Cody Ware finished third in the Lamborghini Long Island entry fielded by Rick Ware Racing. Ware, 18, also was the first Amateur class finisher.


“One of the fun things about the Blancpain Super Trofeo series is that you have to manage the race and manage your tires,” Conway said. “Our Change Racing team gave us a great pit stop and got us back to the top. Just a solid day all around.”


Round 5 winner John Farano led the race from the start until the mandatory pit stop halfway through the race, with Conway trailing by less than a second. Each car is required to pit for at least two minutes to allow for the cars with multiple drivers to make the switch.


VICTOR GONZALES (Second, No. 99 Lamborghini Carolinas): “It was awesome. Yesterday we had a great car. The guys gave me another good car today. My goal was to keep a good pace and get the car back in one piece. Lamborghini Super Trofeo is a great series, and the car was really fast. I’m happy for my teammate with Change Racing, going one-two. That’s really all I can say. And thanks to everybody in the series. It really has been great and thanks to Eddie Littlefield and Robby Benton for giving me this chance.”


After the field filtered through the pits, Farano fell to ninth place due to a drive-through penalty assessed for speeding on pit lane. Conway took over the lead for the remainder of the race.


KEVIN CONWAY (Winner, No. 29 Lamborghini Carolinas): “We didn’t have a good result yesterday, so we started from the fourth position. We started out battling hard with the No. 63 car (John Farano) and just tried to apply as much pressure as possible through the first half of the race until the pit stop. We wanted him to use up his Pirelli tires as much as possible. It’s one of the fun things about the Blancpain Super Trofeo series is that you have to manage the race and manage your tires. Our Change Racing team gave us a great pit stop and got us back to the top. Just a solid day all around, points-wise, for the championship and for this Change Racing team, Lamborghini Carolinas and all the partners that make this possible.”


The No. 81 Lamborghini Chicago entry driven by Mark Boden and fielded by Fall-Line Motorsport finished second in the Amateur class, followed by co-drivers Lee Carpentier and Dillon Machavern in the No. 24 Lamborghini Palm Beach Gallardo fielded by Mitchum Motorsports.


This was Conway’s first victory since Round 2 in March at Sebring International Raceway. The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America travels to Canada for the next two rounds, July 11-13 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario.


In Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo – Europe competition this weekend at Circuit Paul Ricard, Milos Pavlovic won Race 1 in the No. 3 Bonaldi Motorsport and Jeroen Mul picked up the victory in Race 2 in the No. 22 Automobili Lamborghini RT Germany. The next round of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Eurpoe is July 25-26 at Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium.


CODY WARE (Third; First Amateur, No. 38 Lamborghini Long Island): “I set out with a goal of just being smooth and consistent, staying out of trouble and just running my own race and not worrying about everybody around me. In the end, it paid off for me. I had to just watch my surroundings with everything happening on the track so I could avoid everything before it happened and prepare myself for what might happen. It was a fantastic weekend, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better starting off in this series and can’t wait to come back for Toronto.”
