The domestic arm of Italian auto maker, Lamborghini, continues to rejoice with the 50th anniversary of its parent company by promoting the talent of motorsport in the country. For this, the super sports car maker has come to an end to support Amer Beg, the first Indian to perform in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo, which is the world's fastest one-make series. On this, the Head of Operations, Lamborghini India, Pavan Shetty, was quoted as saying, “The Lamborghini Super Trofeo is an ideal platform to showcase the talent of Indian racers like Amer Beg who represent the country's promising motorsport potential. The Super Trofeo series has also grown into one of the company’s foremost platforms for communicating its brand heritage.”
The Lamborghini Super Trofeo was established in 2009 and has significantly expanded in the last few couple of years with around 20 cars contesting races at the tracks of Europe. It must be noted that this series made its debut in Asia in 2012. This event is known as the 'fastest one-make racing series in the world' and is definitely supported by the Italian auto maker. It is believed that this event will be crucial as the Indian arm of Lamborghini has been celebrating its 50th Anniversary with the promotion of first Indian racer.
Interestingly, Amer Beg is from Hyderabad and is all prepared to be the first Indian to be a part of Lamborghini Super Trofeo Series, which will organised at Shanghai at this weekend. When Beg got the first experience of what exactly motor racing was all about, he was in Toronto. Since then, Amer has looked upon the sport winning trophies at Mosport Labour Day Challenge and Canada Day Cup. Reportedly, the young Indian racer will see participation from the drivers of Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Malaysia, along with other countries. Industry experts believe that this platform is much apt for Beg to showcase his talent.
Expresing his views on this contest, Amer said, “I am thankful to Lamborghini India for this opportunity and it is a privilege to be a part of the fastest one-make series in the world. I have competed exclusively in single-seaters till now but I am looking forward to make a smooth transition into GT cars – even though there will be a lot to learn going into my first race weekend.”
