Due to the ongoing sanitary situation and travel restrictions caused by the global pandemic, Lamborghini Squadra Corse regrets to announce the cancellation of the 2021 Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia season. However, following a sabbatical in 2020, Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East will make its return from the start of 2022 with a full calendar to be announced in due course.
In consideration of the Chinese Market’s growth, a brand-new dedicated class of the China-based GT Super Sprint Challenge will be launched this year, specifically for those competing in Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo cars. The class is officially supported by Lamborghini Squadra Corse in order to provide the best possible racing experience within the GTSSC Championship. The shorter Sprint Race concept of GTSSC proves the perfect platform for Gentleman drivers to compete and hone their skills in their Lamborghini Huracán ST Evo.
Additionally, this new GTSSC class offers an excellent opportunity for drivers looking to race exclusively within China with full Lamborghini factory support, or for those keen to gain experience before progressing into the internationally recognized Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia Series.
The GT Super Sprint Challenge is a new GT racing category which is open to GT2, GT3, GT4 and GTC cars. It was created to cater especially to amateur drivers interested in participating in a professionally managed GT racing series. The 2021 season will feature five events and visit at Grade 1 and Grade 2 circuits around China, including Shanghai International Circuit, Ningbo, Zhuzhou and Ordos. A Grand Final will hold the last race of the season, with the venue to be announced soon.
The race format will consist of two one-hour pre-event test sessions on the Friday before a 45-minute free practice session on Saturday. Then there will be a 20-minute qualifying session ahead of two 27-minute Sprint Races.
