07 Jul Lamborghini Super Trofeo N.America
I had the privilege of attending a Lamborghini Super Trofeo Race where the cars paralleled a stampede of bulls ready to fight. The atmosphere at Watkins Glen Internation Speedway was the same as any other bullfighting stadium, with cars ready to mow anything that crossed their path. I felt a pure adrenaline rush running through my veins in the presence of Lamborghini heritage and their traditional race. It was truly an honor to be there. Each Lamborghini SuperTrofeo was dressed in unique graphic attire that represented their respective dealerships and sponsors. A plethora of colors, the names of big brand supporters, and their major sponsor, Blancpain, were proudly displayed on the spoilers of every car.
To witness the SuperTrofeo race cars staging before the race was not only intense but also pretty sick. I didn’t know where to begin looking so I just whipped out my iPhone and began taking loads of pictures. Soon enough, I found myself posing and taking pictures with some of the drivers! I was all smiles at that point. And to add to all the excitement, the roars of each Super Trofeo car as their engines started was music to my soul. Prior to the roll out there was a red Lamborghini Aventador with little sirens. It was the Official Pace car for the event. How appropriate, I thought to myself while in utter awe.
Congrats to Kevin Conway, who earned his second win of the 2014 Round 6 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo NA series 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 (http://squadracorse.lamborghini.com/en/super-trofeo-north-america/news/).” The race lasted a total of 50 minutes.
Watkins Glens and Lamborghini made my experience such a pleasurable and memorable one. Thank you to all who made this happen.
