Change Racing has revealed a three-car campaign for this year’s Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America Series.
The Charlotte-based team, which has won multiple championship titles in the all-Lamborghini series every season since joining the series in 2013, will support two entries in the Am class as well as a third in the Pro class.
After coming within two championship points of securing the 2015 AM title, the father-son duo of Dr. Jim and Josh Norman will look to avenge that outcome this year as they join Change Racing to team in the No. 71 www.highbloodcalciumisbad.com entry.
“We are very excited to get the new Super Trofeo season underway,” said Dr. Jim Norman, a previous Rolex 24 At Daytona class winner. “We are with a new team and enter the season with a new confidence and swagger. Laguna has been very good for us in the past so we expect a great showing for the Change Racing family.”
“We had six wins last year and fell short of the championship by a mere 2 points,” added Josh Norman. “So we have some unfinished business to attend to!”
Making his rookie campaign with the team, Luis Rodriguez will also do battle as a single driver in the Am class.
Rodriguez, who made a remarkable race-winning debut in his first IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race in 2015, will pilot the No. 29 Legacy Homes Lamborghini Huracàn.
“I am really looking forward to the 2016 Lamborghini Super Trofeo season,” said Rodriguez. “Last year, I had a very successful season finishing third overall in the IMSA Continental SportsCar Challenge Championship alongside my co-driver Spencer Pumpelly.
“This year I will be driving the number 29 Lamborghini Carolinas, Legacy Homebuilders car as a solo driver for Change Racing.
“I can’t wait to get going at such a famed race track with Robby Benton and Change Racing. They are a first class organization and I will give it my all this year to defend their legacy and continue the team’s success in the series.”
After adding a Super Trofeo World Championship to close out his 2015 season with Change Racing, Corey Lewis will return to the series in the Pro class to pursue another championship.
“I am grateful to be back in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Series with Change Racing in the Pro category,” said Lewis, who will carry the No. 16 on the Monster/Lamborghini Carolinas-sponsored machine.
“2015 was an amazing year for us and I am looking to continue our team’s success. Robby Benton and the whole Change Racing crew know the winning combination and I expect the same for 2016.
“I’m ready to proudly represent Lamborghini Carolinas this weekend in the chase for the top step.”
The weekend will see the team also return to WeatherTech Championship action with a two-car program as the team continues to build on its Lamborghini program in 2016.
“It’s been a lot of work to put everything in place, but I’m very happy with how our Lamborghini Super Trofeo program came together for 2016,” said team principal Robby Benton.
“This is the foundation for our team and where we’ve built a lot of success, so it’ll be nice to continue in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo paddock.
“Our team owner Eddie Littlefield has provided us with all the right resources to do great things this year and we intend to do just that.”
