Blancpain Supertrofeo(Last leg of the Super Trofeo championship season)

.

The first season of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo was brought to a magnificent conclusion in the sunshine of Provence. Marc A. Hayek and Peter Kox once again achieved impressive performances on the Paul Ricard track in Le Castellet. After six Grand Prix events comprising 18 races held between May and October, the Hayek and Kox pair competing with the Reiter Engineering team earned the 2nd spot in the team ranking. Blancpain’s President and CEO also took 2nd place on the Pro-Am podium, while his co-driver from the Netherlands came 2nd in the Pro category. These spectacular final results set the crowning touch to the association of skills initiated a year ago between the Manufacture from Le Brassus and the Italian automobile manufacturer.

This alliance has also given rise to the Super Trofeo Blancpain Chronograph*, a limited series composed of high-tech materials and featuring a sporting look inspired by the automobile world. Snapped up immediately by eager enthusiasts, all 300 of these Super Trofeo chronographs have become instant collector’s items that give a foretaste of the forthcoming horological creations from the Manufacture, in cooperation with the engineers of the Italian firm. On the track side, the two next Lamborghini Blancpain

Super Trofeo seasons are already scheduled on the 2010 and 2011 racing calendars, and will once again feature the participation of Marc A.
