LOS ANGELES, Calif. (February 4, 2015)- Taking part in a private test at the all-new Thermal Club near Palm Springs, California, World Stage Racing’s Brian Wong held the rare honor of becoming the first to test one of motorsport’s most anticipated racing cars on North American soil, the Lamborghini Huracán LP620-2 Super Trofeo.
“I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect, but wow, what an amazing car,” stated Wong. “I was familiar with what would now be known as the ‘old’ Gallardo and the Super Trofeo Series, but I honestly wasn’t terribly familiar with the program or the series. I guess with a name like Lamborghini I shouldn’t have been surprised, but the car was fantastic. Great power, great grip, they’ve really taken advantage out of the mid-engine platform. The entire Lamborghini team that was on-site was very well presented and professional, and it’s clear they’re taking the right steps for a great program.”
The new GT3-spec car, which will be showcased in the United States as part of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America series, is an all-new creation from the revered Italian marque. Built to the worldwide GT3-spec, beyond the Super Trofeo championship the car will also be eligible in such series as the Pirelli World Challenge, Blancpain GT series, or the GTD category of the TUDOR United Sportscar Championship (in 2016).
Keeping a keen eye on the car and its direction, both Wong and principals of World Stage Racing are closely monitoring the progression of the car, as the organization continues to search out partners and digital technologies as part of its business model. With a core focus on building a bridge between Chinese and United States business relationships, as well as focusing on engaging a digital generation, the prospective of Lamborghini’s renowned attention to presentation and luxury is strongly in concert with WSR.
Wong, the first Chinese-American driver to take podium finishes in both the professional sportscar as well as professional stock car ranks, was part of an exclusive group invited to the private test. Taking place in Southern California, the Newport Beach native was one of only a half dozen invited, and the first to get behind the wheel.
With World Stage Racing still continuing their development, stay tuned for future releases on the organization’s plans for the future.
