US RaceTronics Kicks Off Lamborghini Super Trofeo 2019 Season with New Driver Lineup

US RaceTronics arrived at Barber Motorsports Park yesterday for the season opener of the 2019 Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Series. Canadian driver Damon Ockey returns to the team, but will be competing in the ProAm category alongside Jacob Eidson in the No. 09 Lamborghini of Vancouver.



Patrick Liddy and Bryce Miller will compete in the PRO class driving the No. 34 Lamborghini of Beverly Hills, while Ron Atapattu makes his return to Lamborghini racing in the No. 24 Elephantea Lamborghini of La Jolla LB Cup car.
 


Team owner Shane Seneviratne is thrilled for the start of the 2019 LSTNA season with an exciting new driver lineup and is especially excited that the season-opener is being held at Barber Motorsports Park in conjunction with this weekend's IndyCar race. Seneviratne started his racing career in open-wheel and is excited to be back at the track with friends he raced with for many years.
 


"I'm excited to start a new season," Seneviratne said. "We have a really good driver lineup, some returning drivers along with some new drivers. I'm excited for the new season. Lamborghini has done a great job selecting a good schedule for us to race at. Kind of excited to be back with IndyCar, my roots in racing, so really looking forward to this weekend especially. Unfortunately, we couldn't get Steven Aghakhani approved to race this event, but hopefully he'll be with us for the next race and we'll have four cars up and running as a team at Watkins Glen.



 But, I'm really excited to have Damon back and to have Jacob pairing up with Damon. Happy to have Ron with us with his Elephantea campaign and then also really stoked to have Patrick Liddy and Bryce Miller driving for our team. I look forward to working with both returning and new sponsors and want to thank them all for their continued support."
 


USRT's PRO drivers, Patrick Liddy and Bryce Miller, are both excited to be with US RaceTronics for this season. With the team's past success, the driver duo except to see great results from the start. Liddy raced at Barber Motorsports Park just a few weeks ago and is eager to return.
 


"I am extremely excited to start this Super Trofeo season with US RaceTronics and Bryce Miller," Liddy said. "We have worked extremely hard this off-season and I am looking forward to great results on track. Barber is a really exciting track. It was exciting for me in a Porsche with half the horsepower, so it's going to be very interesting to see what it's going to be like with 24 600 horsepower Lamborghinis on track. We're hoping that it's not going to be raining. Very excited to be out here and hope we don't get too scared by the Zombie hanging off the bridge."
 


"Honestly, I'm just super grateful that we were able to put together this program for Patrick and me," Miller added. "It's been a year and a half since I've been behind the wheel of a race car and this will be my first time at Barber, so I am just hoping we can get out there, keep our nose clean and put together a good result for the team. I have worked with Shane since 2014 so to finally have the opportunity to drive one of his cars is a dream come true. So thankful for him and for the support from everyone at Lamborghini."
 


USRT veteran Damon Ockey will partner with American driver Jacob Eidson for his return in the No. 09 Lamborghini of Vancouver. Ockey and Eidson will challenge for the ProAm championship and both are looking forward to the season opener.
 


"After a long winter break, I am looking forward to racing again," Ockey said. "This will be my first season co-driving and I'm super excited to be driving with Jacob. He is fast and we are looking forward to some great competition. I've never been to Barber so I have a lot of work cut out for the weekend. As always, US RaceTronics has been on the car and getting it perfect for the start. Going to be good to see all the old team and some new members."
 


"I'm very excited for the first race of the season with US RaceTronics especially having the first round at Barber." Eidson added. "It has always been a good track for me and I look forward to seeing what the season holds!"
 


Veteran Lamborghini driver Ron Atapattu will also be joining USRT for the upcoming season. Atapattu drove a Lamborghini Diablo SVR in the 1998-1999 Lamborghini Super Sport Series early in his career as well as several races in 2000 and 2001 behind the wheel of a Lamborghini GTR in the Lamborghini GTR SuperTrophy Series. Atapattu is looking forward to being back on track to promote the Elephantea's conservation programs for the native elephants of Sri Lanka.
 


"I am excited to join US RaceTronics and Live Wild," Atapattu said. "I'm looking forward to getting back to racing Lamborghinis and am thrilled to have the opportunity to raise awareness of our efforts to help save the native elephants of Sri Lanka."
 


The team will participate in today's promoter test on the 2.3-mile, 15 turn road course. Practice 1 for the season opener will be Friday, April 5, 2019 at 10:20 a.m. CDT with a second practice at 3:50 p.m. CDT. LST qualifying is Saturday, April 6, 2019 at 9:25 a.m. CDT, with Race 1 later in the day at 1:50 p.m. CDT. The weekend will wrap up on Sunday, April 7, 2019 with Race 2, which goes green at 12:55 p.m. CDT.
