The Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing team came to Rounds 9 & 10 of the North American Lamborghini Super Trofeo at Sebring International Raceway with a clear goal of continuing its momentum from WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. With a race win and three podiums secured, the season finale for the one-make series marks another multi-race-winning season for the team.
In the first race of the weekend, the team and its drivers were off to a fast start. In the PRO class, Stevan McAleer moved up to third in the No. 1 Prestige Performance Lamborghini on the opening lap, while Eric Curran, making a return to the series with William Hubbell in the No. 69 Hubbell Racing Lamborghini, grabbed second place in the PRO|AM class. After finishing on the podium, a fortnight ago at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, Ashton Harrison started the race in the No. 25 Harrison Contracting in the PRO|AM class, moving up to third by the end of the first lap. In the LB Cup class, Sydney McKee would hold a strong third place in the opening stages of the race in the No. 87 FaDa Racing Lamborghini.
As the pit window opened up at the 20-minute mark, the action started heating up in the bumpy concrete jungle. In the No. 1 Prestige Performance car for the final stint, Stuart Middleton enjoyed several fantastic battles that saw a scrap for third place in the PRO class come down to the final lap. Middleton did a tremendous job to maintain position, crossing the line in third.
In PRO|AM, Andrea Amici took the wheel of the No. 25 Harrison Contracting machine from Ashton Harrison, putting on a fantastic display after a solid opening stint from Harrison. Amici showed his determination, moving his way from third and grabbing the lead with three minutes to go, never looking back to take their first win of the 2020 season for the American-Italian driver duo.
Back in the Lamborghini SuperTrofeo, William Hubbell took the wheel of the No. 69 Hubbell Racing Lamborghini for the final stint in the PRO|AM class, crossing the line fourth after a solid effort from he and co-driver Eric Curran. Syndey McKee put on a marvelous charge in the late stages of the LB Cup class, grabbing second place with 19 minutes remaining, but ultimately finishing the race in third after a thrilling battle.
In the second race of the weekend and the last race of the season, Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing were determined to put on another strong showing. Making the most of qualifying on pole position in the PRO|AM category, Andrea Amici made a lighting start in the No. 25 Harrison Contracting Lamborghini to grab commanding lead. Unfortunately for the Italian, a mistake under braking in Sebring’s treacherous Turn 17 spun the car around, dropping the race leader to fourth. As the pit window opened, Amici brought the car to the pits, handing the car to Ashton Harrison. Putting together yet another measured drive, Harrison would maintain fourth place to finish out the 2020 season for the duo.
In the PRO class, Stuart Middleton started fifth in the No. 1 Prestige Performance Lamborghini, but quickly made his way to fourth, a position he would hold until the mandatory pit stop. Jumping in the car for his final stint of the 2020 season, Stevan McAleer would bring the car home in fourth. Sydney McKee had another inspired drive in the No. 87 FaDa Racing Lamborghini, starting third and finishing fourth, capping off an impressive rookie campaign in the North American Lamborghini Super Trofeo. Back in the series for the first time in 2020, William Hubbell and Eric Curran had a clean run in the No. 69 Hubbell Racing Lamborghini, starting fourth and finishing fifth.
Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing concludes the season second in the Dealer Championship and third in the Team Championship standings. Stevan McAleer and Stuart Middleton finished fourth in the PRO Driver Championship. Drivers of the No. 25 Harrison Contracting Lamborghini Super Trofeo car, Ashton Harrison and Andrea Amici, round out the season in third place while Sydney McKee clinched a second-place finish in the LB Cup Driver Championship.
With the 2020 North American Lamborghini Super Trofeo season now concluded, the attention now shifts to the 2021. Announcements about driver lineups for the new year will be announced in due course.
