We have seen the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo in Europe since 2009 when the Gallardo Super Trofeo was introduced into the fastest one-make series in the world, that year a total of 18 tracks would host the V10, all-wheel drive race car from Sant'Agata with 30 cars built at €200,000 each.
In 2012 the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series expanded to Asia while for the 2013 season a new Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo was introduced and the series went to North America as a third championship ... at the end of the season a race would decide who would become the Super Trofeo world champion.
In 2015 the Gallardo was replaced by the Huracan LP620-2 for the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo season in Europe, North America and Asia ... and for the 2017 season a fourth one is added: the Middle East Series, with three races in Abu Dhabi and Dubai from February 2017 on.
In fact these three races in the Middle East will offer the drivers from the other three Series to test their cars as those latter Series will start later on, the first race in the Middle East will be held on February 9-11 on the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. The second race on February 16-18 will happen on the Dubai Autodrome track while the third and final race will have drivers compete again in Dubai but on a different track layout.
Most likely this fourth Super Trofeo Series will be expanded to more races for the 2018 season, having drivers and customers attending these amazing events in the Middle East will offer the Lamborghini Squadra Corse department even more exposure in this important market.
