The tenth edition of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe kicked-off at Autodromo Nazionale Monza. Two races took place at the iconic Grand Prix circuit with 48 cars appearing on the grid. The first round also marked a continental debut of the new Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo race car.

The winners of the first race were rookies Giacomo Altoe and Job van Uitert in Antonelli Motorsport’s #5 car. Van Uitert took the victory after an exciting drag race against James Pull (Bonaldi Motorsport) on the start-finish straight. In the second race, the winners were Imperiale Racing’s Karol Basz and Vito Postiglione.

The line-up of 48 cars was the record number of appearances on the Italian race track for the Lamborghini one-make series. Vito Postiglione started the race from pole and stayed in the lead for an entire stint, handing the car to Karol Basz. He was in front until the last lap when he was forced to slow down.

James Pull took over the lead but he lost a victory in a drag race against Job van Uitert on the last meters. Pull’s co-driver was Kelvin Snoeks. The third place on the podium went to Antonelli Motorsport’s Kikko Galbiati and Joffrey De Narda.

VS Racing’s Takashi Kasai and Philipp Wlazik finished fourth overall and the first in the Pro-Am category. In the Am class, the victory went to Raffaele Giannoni (Automobile Tricolore).

This time, they were fastest than Altoe and Van Uitert in the third place.

Antonelli Motorsport’s Loris Spinelli and Juan Perez recovered after they started from P31 and climbed to the top podium step in the Pro-Am class, finishing fourth in the overall classification. In the Am category, Raffaele Giannoni (Automobile Tricolore) repeated a victory from the day before.
