Lamborghini Super Trofeo: Emanuele Pirro and Tony Cairoli special crew at the World Final
Nine-time Motocross World Champion Antonio “Tony” Cairoli and five-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans Emanuele Pirro will form an exceptional crew at the Lamborghini World Final in Jerez de la Frontera (24-27 October).
For Cairoli, who won the Monza Rally Show in 2018 and tried out a Formula 1 single-seater of the Red Bull team, it’s the first experience at the wheel of a GT car. But following the first test runs driving a Huracán Super Trofeo Evo, he is confident he can get a good position.
“My thanks to Lamborghini, who gave us the chance to do some test drives at Vallelunga,” commented Cairoli. “The car was really fantastic to drive and everything went well except for the weather, which partially ruined the second day of testing. Now we’re looking forward to the World Final, which will be a true debut for me.”
Alternating at the wheel with the famous novice will be Emanuele Pirro, legend of covered-wheel motorsport, who stated: “I am super excited to take part in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo World Final for more than one reason. First, because I’ll finally get to drive this iconic car in a race, and second, sharing it with a true legend like Tony Cairoli will make it even more special. It will be the perfect way to get to know from the inside how the Super Trofeo works, in light of my role as Motorsport consultant for Lamborghini.”
The two drivers will compete at the wheel of the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo no. 222, in honor of Cairoli’s racing number, running the 6th round of the Super Trofeo Asia in the Pro-Am category on Friday, and then participating as a wild card in the two finals on Saturday 26 at 5.00 pm and Sunday 27 at 4.00 pm.
