SONOMA, Calif. — In anticipation of its newest testing program, Flying Lizard Motorsports has partnered with Lamborghini Squadra Corse and has taken delivery of a brand-new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo.

Starting this month, the team will offer a testing platform primarily based at its home track of Sonoma Raceway.

“We are excited to be partnering with Lamborghini Squadra Corsa,” said Flying Lizard Program Manager Darren Law. “Having a 2019 Super Trofeo this season will allow us to grow our test program at Sonoma Raceway. The goal this year is to spend time investing in research and development of the new car and working with customers. We have had a high level of interest from many drivers wanting to experience the performance of this car and we are interested to see where this relationship can lead.”

The IMSA Lamborghini Super Trofeo North American series kicked off in April at Barber Motorsports Park, and has garnered significant interest among sports car drivers and teams.

In an effort to further promote the new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo and the growing race series, the new program will provide the opportunity for interested parties to test the car with the six-time American Le Mans Series champions.

“Lamborghini Squadra Corse are delighted to be able to partner with a team such as Flying Lizard Motorsport in an effort to further promote the Super Trofeo racing platform,” said Chris Ward, senior manager, Motorsport Automobili Lamborghini America. “Adding a venue like Sonoma with the support of a team like them for our prospects to try out the car in a test environment is really exciting and I’m sure will bear fruit in the immediate future. I look forward to welcoming the team to the Series soon with some new customers to further expand our already growing grid in North America.”

The team’s first test with the 620 horsepower, V10 machinery will take place at the beginning of May.
