Ron Atapattu, driver in the IMSA Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Series, is ready for competition in the Lamborghini World Finals, October 24-27, in Jerez, Spain. The race at the 2.75-mile/4.428 km Circuito de Jerez, on the Jerez-Angel Nieto Circuit, will award the champions in the 12-race, six venue series, along with competitors from Europe and Asia.
 


Atapattu owns and drives the No. 24 elephantea/ShipOCI/Lamborghini of La Jolla Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO in U.S. competition, the powerful 5.2-liter aspirated V10 Huracan EVO with a six-speed sequential gearbox and rear wheel drive. He and co-driver Patrick Liddy drive in the Pro/Am class and will be competing under the No. 124 entry at Jerez. His car is prepared and managed by US Racetronics, based in Monrovia, Calif.



Atapattu, the Founder and President of Overseas Cargo, Inc. (ShipOCI.com), returned to professional racing this season with his exciting platform to market his elephantea, apremium tea company, and elephant conservation awareness programs through his eTeaRacing effort.


 



"We've had a number of good and successful races in the U.S. and competing in Jerez, Spain for the World Finals is an honor and a great way to end out the season," said Atapattu, of Miami, Fla. "I plan to do a test day and familiarize myself with the Jerez Circuit so we will be ready to go come race time. It will be great to be back racing internationally again."



 
Atapattu, who previously competed in the global Lamborghini Super Sport Trophy series back in the 1990s and early 2000s, started the 2019 IMSA Lamborghini Super Trofeo Series season at Barber Motorsports Park where he finished fifth and sixth in the LB Cup. The next race was at Watkins Glen International and Ron collected fourth and fifth in the doubleheader.



 Round three was at Road America in America's heartland and Atapattu celebrated his first podium of the season. He moved to the Pro-Am class after Patrick Liddy's teammate suffered a crash in the first race and Ron invited Liddy to co-drive with him, which paid off with a second-place finish. He also was sixth in the LB Cup there.



The fourth round was at VIRginia International Raceway, where Atapatttu and Liddy collected more podium finishes with two second-place finishes. The final U.S. race was at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca where Atapattu and Liddy closed out the round with a fourth and second-place finish.
 


Ron's foremost purpose for returning to racing through eTeaRacing brings a conservation origin of giving back to the environment from his youth with a drive to educate people around the world about the beauty of wild elephants, specifically from his native country of Sri Lanka, and the plight of human-elephant conflict. The eTea Racing's efforts are made possible by the support of valuable sponsors: Lamborghini North America, Lamborghini of La Jolla and ShipOCI.



 
The elephantea brand, created by Ron and his daughter, Shani, is certified organic, fair trade and kosher. The parent tea company, Bogawantalawa, is one of the few single source tea companies in the world that grows, hand picks, processes and packages the tea leaves from its over 17,000 acre, 160-year-old tea plantation. The highly desired Ceylon teas from the Golden Valley of Sri Lanka are considered the finest teas in the world. The plantation's teas are currently shipped to over 25 countries worldwide.



 
Ron was born and raised in Sri Lanka and descends from generations of tea lovers and elephant activists. Ron's uncle, Dr. Shelton Atapattu, was a renowned veterinarian who specialized in elephants, and was a pioneer in elephant conservation. Throughout the years, the natural habitat of the elephants has been reduced by farming and population growth and the interaction between people and wild elephants has resulted in human-elephant conflict that takes the lives of an average about 500 elephants a year and about 200 people.




The resulting consequences is the herd suffers when they lose a member of the herd, not to mention the loss of human lives. The mission of elephantea is to support the various conservation programs for the native elephants Sri Lanka.



 
The conservation programs that elephantea supports are: The Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society (SLWCS) www.slwcs.org; Elefriendly Bus, www.slwcs.org/elefriendly-bus; Project Orange Elephant, https://www.slwcs.org/project-orange-elephant; EleVETS, https://www.slwcs.org/elevets, and the New Life Elephant Sanctuary (NLES).
