So you have been admiring the pilots in the Blancpain Super Trofeo series for a while, but you don't have a racing license ... fear not, Lamborghini has the next best thing lined up for you ... the Track Accademia Pilota Lamborghini at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on November 7-8, 2015.
The Squadra Corsa department has put together the most advanced track event for customers yet, 8 people will be able to experience the closest thing to participating in an actual race ... during this two day event you will be trained by the actual Super Trofeo race team members to prepare you to become a race driver.
First you will be taken onto the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the driver seat of a production Lamborghini Huracán, for an advanced course to get to know the track ... after that the real fun will begin by actually driving a real race car, the Gallardo Super Trofeo ... on slicks ... a car that is only available to licensed pilots normally.
Pilota Lamborghini will put you in the shoes of a race driver ... experiencing the free practice runs to get to know the car, a real life qualifying session where you will try to put down the best time possible including a tire change ... all to culminate in a full blown 30 lap race that will include a pit stop and a driver change.
Nothing has ever come as close to real racing
You will also receive an invitation to take a test drive in the fastest one-make GT car ... the Huracan LP620-2 Super Trofeo, not only will you have access to the exclusive Lamborghini VIP lounge, but you will also get a bespoke set of racing gear, Lamborghini award and merchandise only made available for this event.
If you complete the Pilota Lamborghini you will in fact be eligible to apply for an official IMSA-FIA racing license ... how cool is that?
Day 1 will have you flying into the Las Vegas Motor Speedway by helicopter around 4:30pm to have you fitted into your racing gear, after which you can do some laps on the track behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Huracán ... after a cocktail and an official welcome you will be taken back to your luxury hotel on the Las Vegas Strip at 6:45pm.
Day 2 starts at 7:00 am with a nice breakfast before you are taken back to the Motor Speedway to attend the advanced classroom session and an official photo shoot. After that hands on starts on the track with extreme recovery techniques, on track overtaking and actual driving of the Gallardo Super Trofeo race car ... at 12:00 lunch will be arranged in the Black Jack Club.
By 1:30pm the free practice session starts until the qualifying session begins at 3:10pm during which a pit stop will have to be performed to have a new set of racing slicks installed on the car. At 4:10pm the race briefing explaining the necessary procedures is planned with pre-race procedure and grid formation happening at 4:30pm.
At 4:45pm on day 2 the Pilota Lamborghini culminates during a 30 lap race with a required pit stop during which a driver change is implied ... each driver will be getting about 14 to 16 laps of seat time behind the wheel of a Gallardo Super Trofeo competing to become the Pilota Champion.
After the race you will be asked to give interviews just like the real race drivers in the Blancpain Super Trofeo series before being taken to the podium to receive the award and enjoy some Champaign ... by 6:30pm you will be taken back to the hotel.
Day 3 might be the most interesting of them all, between 7:00am and 10:00am you will receive an in-depth look at the amazing Lamborghini Huracán LP620-2 Super Trofeo race car ... with the help of a Lamborghini Squadra Corse specialist you will even be able to drive this masterpiece on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway ... after which your stint will be analyzed by actual racing team staff.
Participation at the Pilota Lamborghini is a once in a lifetime opportunity to actually drive both the Gallardo Super Trofeo and the new Huracán Super Trofeo ... but it doesn't come cheap at $19,995 ... but we have some bad news ... it is all sold out! That's right, the 8 spots that were available for this amazing Track Accademia have been filled, sorry.
