Karol Basz at Monza for his debut in the Super Trofeo Lamborghini
The Monza circuit will inaugurate Karol Basz’s new course in the European Super Trofeo Lamborghini Championship which this year will run its tenth season. The season of seven rounds, including the World Final al Vallelunga, will begin this week at Monza followed by Silverstone, Misano, Spa-Francorchamps, Nurburgring and Vallelunga.
The 27 year old Polish driver will wear for the first time the colours of Imperiale Racing and will share the cockpit of the new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO number 44 with Vito Postiglione in the Pro class. The car is equipped with completely redesigned aerodynamics compared to last year’s model. This will be the first important appointment for Karol as he has not yet had the opportunity to test the powerful car from Sant’Agata Bolognese.
After his positive debut in GT cars in last year’s Italian Gran Turismo Championship – Super GT Cup in which he set pole position and three podium finishes, all with a Lamborghini Huracàn, Karol is called to take another important step forward in his Gran Turismo career.
“I am pleased to come back to racing and to make my debut in the Super Trofeo Lamborghini with Imperiale racing and with an expert driver such as Vito Postiglione. If in the next rounds I will also have learn the circuits, this weekend I will be able to concentrate only on the new “Lambo” as I already know Monza’s secrets”.
“A new season is beginning for Karol which is becoming a new step forward in his career towards professionalism. Last year he managed to amaze us by quickly setting pole position on debut and then with a number of podium finishes. Now he is called to an even more demanding challenge but he has his papers in order for a season at the highest levels,” commented managers Giovanni Minardi and Alberto Tonti.
The two rounds of 50’ each will start on Saturday 21st beginning at 3.10pm and Sunday 22nd at 12.20pm.
