A few weeks ago, Monterey, California experienced a real bull fight. Not in an arena nor on the streets of that fabled city, but in the oak and grass covered hills of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo started its 2015 North American season with the first two rounds on May 2nd and 3rd.
This is the third season for the North American event which is also held in Europe and Asia . The 2015 season features twelve rounds at six circuits with the finale being in October at Sebring International Raceway. The series is divided into two classes of cars; the 2013 Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo and, new this year, the Huracan LP 620-2 Super Trofeo. Within the Huracan Class there are Professional, Professional-Amateur, and Amateur drivers. The Gallado Class only has Pro-AM and Amateur. Each day of racing consists of both classes being on the track at the same time for a 50-minute sprint race.
