Pristine conditions welcomed drivers and teams competing in the second race of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America weekend on Sunday at Road America. They took full advantage and put on a sparkling show that saw a pair of new winners for 2019 among the four classes in the single-make series featuring Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVOs.
 


At the conclusion of the race on the 4.048-mile natural terrain road course, the No. 1 Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus repeated its overall and Pro class win from Saturday, while the No. 09 US RaceTronics, Lamborghini Vancouver made it a weekend sweep in Pro-Am.
 


Meanwhile, the No. 33 Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus rode to victory in the Am class, with the No. 88 GMG Racing, Lamborghini Newport Beach triumphant in LB Cup. It marked the first wins this season for the No. 33 and No. 88.
 


The entire 50-minute race ran under green-flag conditions, placing the emphasis on strong on-track performance and flawless mandatory pit stops. Starting from the pole position in the No. 1, Sandy Mitchell built a lead of more than eight seconds before the pit window opened with 30 minutes remaining. Meanwhile, the action was fast and furious behind the leader, including a sensational pass for third place on Lap 4 by Jacob Eidson in the No. 09 on Corey Lewis in the No. 29 Change Racing, Lamborghini Charlotte.
 


Race leader Mitchell made his mandatory pit stop on Lap 11, turning over the wheel to co-driver Andrea Amici. Eidson waited longer to pit, taking the overall lead before stopping on Lap 13 so Damon Ockey could hop into the No. 09.
 


Once the pit cycle completed, the No. 1 with Amici driving returned atop the scoring pylon, ahead of the No. 27 Dream Racing Motorsport, Lamborghini Dallas. Ockey ran third in the No. 09.
 


It didn’t take long, though, for the charging No. 29 – with Richy Antinucci in the cockpit – to overtake Ockey for third. At the same time, the No. 43 Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus – leader at the time in LB Cup – was handed a drive-through penalty because its pit stop didn’t fulfill the minimum time requirement. As the No. 43 was riding through pit lane, Thomas Lovelady was wheeling the No. 88 past the No. 22 Dream Racing Motorsport, Lamborghini Atlanta for the LB Cup lead.
 


When the checkered flag waved, Amici won in the No. 1 by 5.211 seconds over the No. 27 co-driven by Cedric Sbirrazzuoli and Paolo Ruberti. The No. 29 of Lewis and Antinucci rounded out the overall and Pro podiums.
 


The No. 09 of Eidson/Ockey held on for win in Pro-Am, with the No. 24 US RaceTronics, Lamborghini La Jolla driven by Ron Atapattu and Patrick Liddy second and the No. 69 Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus and co-drivers Eric Curran and William Hubbell third.
 


Cameron Cassels drove the No. 33 to the win in the Am class, with the No. 63 Change Racing, Lamborghini Charlotte driven by McKay Snow – Saturday’s winner – in second and the No. 6 US RaceTronics, Lamborghini Beverly Hills piloted by Steven Aghakhani third.
 


Lovelady and Jeffrey Cheng won in LB Cup with the No. 88. Ashton Harrison made a sensational recovery from the drive-through penalty in the No. 43 to finish second in class with co-driver Stephanie Cemo. Third place in LB Cup went to the No. 3 Dream Racing Motorsport, Lamborghini North LA driven by Randy Sellari.
 


As the season is now past the halfway point, Lewis and Antinucci have a five-point lead (81-76) over Amici and Mitchell. Ockey and Eidson have a 33-point lead in the Pro-Am Class after their two wins this weekend. Snow comes out of Road America with an 81-67 lead over Cassels in the Am Class. Harrison and Cemo’s finish Sunday helped get them to within two points of LB Cup leader Mel Johnson.
 


The Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America championship returns to action with Round 4, a doubleheader weekend at VIRginia International Raceway from August 23-25. Those races will be streamed on IMSA.tv or squadracorse.lamborghini.com/live-streaming with IMSA Radio commentary. NBCSN will be broadcasting this round from Road America on Friday, Aug. 15 at 12 p.m. EDT.
 




What They Said
 



Sandy Mitchell – No. 1 Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus

 
“That was awesome. We got our first win yesterday and then were able to repeat today. The car was absolutely perfect. I managed to push hard in the first few laps and then managed to keep the tires nice and give Andrea a good gap for the second half of the race. There’s not much more we could have asked for from our Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing car today. We had some bad luck at Barber but since then we have looked good. We got a lot of points this weekend and we are right back in the fight for first position.”
 



Andrea Amici - No. 1 Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus

 
“This is special and the car today was absolutely fantastic. Sandy gave me a great gap and all I had to do was manage it. I want to thanks Prestige Performance, Wayne Taylor Racing and Lamborghini Paramus for the great car today. We are closer to the championship lead so I have my fingers crossed that we can get closer the next time we race.”
 



Cameron Cassels – No. 33 Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus

 
“This has been a while coming for sure. I have to thanks Prestige Performance and Wayne Taylor Racing for putting an awesome car together. I struggled a bit yesterday but today there was some action behind me that helped me get the win. The car was great. It’s a busy weekend for me and I’m looking forward to keeping moving this momentum forward. This was a clean race and everyone kept it clean, that’s the way you want it.”
 



Damon Ockey – No. 09 US RaceTronics Lamborghini Vancouver

 
“It was a great weekend and Road America is one of my favorite tracks. The weekend really went our way and today Jake had a strong start and brought the car in in second place. I wasn’t able to hold off a few of the pros but we finished fourth overall and got the class win. The car was strong all weekend and thanks to US RaceTronics for that. I never want to count my chickens before they are hatched but we are sitting pretty good. We are going to push and do the best we can the rest of the season.”
 



Jacob Eidson - No. 09 US RaceTronics Lamborghini Vancouver

 
“It was another crazy race and the start was a little hectic. I was in P3 for a while and was trying to get an overall podium and we were almost able to do it. Damon did a great job of finishing off strong for another class win. We had a great car from US RaceTronics and Lamaborghini for giving us a great weekend. We just need to keep doing what we have been doing the rest of the year and see what happens as we try and finish off the class championship.”
 



Jeffrey Chang – No. 88 GMG Racing, Lamborghini Newport Beach

 
“We had a clean race and was trying to hold position. I had a little bit of a brake problem and was trying to fix it as I was driving. It worked for us in the end and keep it as close as I could to the others in our class before handing the car off to Tom.”
 



Tom Lovelady – No. 88 GMG Racing, Lamborghini Newport Beach

 
“I was just trying to push hard and put pressure on the cars in front of us. I wanted to have clean laps with no mistakes. This is a beautiful place and I love racing here. Winning here makes it that more special.”
