Madison Snow and Corey Lewis Sweep Mid-Ohio Weekend for Change Racing, Lamborghini Charlotte

The biggest story to come out of the opening rounds of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America championship was the weekend sweep by Corey Lewis and Madison Snow in the No. 29 Change Racing, Lamborghini Charlotte Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO. 

The Change Racing team showed consistent pace in both practices but were able to post a time no better than third in either session. That consistency continued into qualifying where both Snow and Lewis qualified in the third position. 

When it came time to race, the experience of the two PRO class drivers paid off. Snow started the first race for the Change Racing duo and worked the No. 29 into second place on the start. 

“The start of the race, I definitely had a good run on Trent [Hindman],” Snow said. “I was in third right behind first and we managed to time the start perfectly. Trent just got caught out so, that was good for me.” 

Snow would turn the car over to his co-driver Lewis during the mandatory pit stop 20-minutes into Race 1. With just three minutes remaining in the event, Lewis made a bold move to pass JC Perez in the No. 71 P1 Motorsports, Lamborghini Broward and secured the first victory of the weekend for the pair. 

The No. 29 Change Racing team saw much less drama in the second race as Lewis took the green. He got the lead on lap 2 when the leader, Stevan McAleer in the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing, Lamborghini Paramus lost a tire. Lewis would hand the car over to his co-driver Snow during the mandatory pit stop with a one second lead over the second place No. 71 P1 Motorsports, Lamborghini Broward of Loris Spinelli. 

Despite a hard charge from Spinelli during the final stint, closing the lead to only a few car lengths, Snow and the Change Racing team would take the checkered flag and open the 2018 Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America season with a weekend sweep. 

“I was more tense watching the end of this race than any other race I have ever been involved in for whatever reason,” said Lewis. “It was exciting and I am extremely happy for Change Racing and Lamborghini Charlotte.”

Taylor Proto and Edoardo Piscopo Show Early Speed Following Move to Pro Class 

The 2017 PRO-AM world champions Edoardo Piscopo and Taylor Proto started the 2018 Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America season as the newest members of the PRO class at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Before the start of the weekend, both drivers were looking forward to the challenge of the PRO class.

“I’m happy to be returning to the North American Super Trofeo series,” Proto said. “I’m looking forward to further developing this season and cutting my teeth with the rest of the Pro field.” 

It did not take long for the No. 50 US RaceTronics, Lamborghini Beverly Hills drivers to prove that they would be contenders in the premiere class of Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America, taking a podium third overall and third in class in race one of the two-race weekend. 

“Today was a really good race,” Proto said following Race 1. “I’m really pleased with it. It was a good start to the season, putting it on podium. Great job to Edoardo and the rest of the crew.”

The US RaceTronics drivers looked to continue the momentum into race 2 with Taylor Proto starting the race in second. Proto would challenge for the lead early but a miscalculation by the team resulted in a much longer than normal pit stop and cost Proto and Piscopo the opportunity to challenge for the win.

Despite the race two disappointment, Piscopo was upbeat about the future for the team in the new class.

“Not bad for our first start,” Piscopo said. “We didn’t have a chance to test here before coming this weekend, so as a debut I’m quite happy with the pace. Taylor showed a great improvement from last year. We’re now a really strong duo to compete in Pro.”
