Thrilling final in France

15. November 2020

The last two Lamborghini Super Trofeo races of the 2020 motorsport season are finished by the team from Wegberg as class and overall winner. Yury Wagner crowned the season on Lamborghini #21 as champion of the AM class, Mikko Eskelinen and Elias Niskanen became vice champions of the PRO-AM class on the MadCroc Lamborghini #30. On top of that, Leipert Motorsport recorded five podium finishes in Paul Ricard, including the overall victory in race 2.

Final chequered flag in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe season 2020. At the end of five race weekends, the team from Wegberg supported by MOTUL can look back on an exciting season with excellent results. At the grand finale at the Circuit Paul Ricard in France, the long-established team and the drivers from 5 nations once again demonstrated sporting spirit and a strong performance.

Yury Wagner has secured the championship title of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo 2020 in the AM class!

Unbeatable remained the Leipert Motorsport AM drivers Yury Wagner and Fidel Leib on the Profi-Car Lamborghini #21. The duo celebrated two class wins at the grand finale. Yury Wagner thus crowned himself the deserved champion of the AM class and shared the joy with his team mate Fidel Leib, who joined the team from the second race weekend but played a major part in this success.

Vice-Champion title of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe 2020 for Mikko Eskelinen and Elias Niskanen in the PRO-AM class!

The two Finns Mikko Eskelinen and Elias Niskanen on the MadCroc Lamborghini #30 convinced again with exciting fights during the last race weekend. Both races were finished on the podium: third place on Saturday and second place on Sunday not only gave them two outstanding results, but also the Vice-Championship title in the PRO-AM class.

Great performance: Luka Nurmi and Guillem Pujeu two times in the Top Ten

After Jonathan Judek could not compete in the final due to health problems, the 16-year-old Finn Luka Nurmi, who already won the Porsche Sprint Challenge NEZ this year, jumped in without further ado. Bad luck, however, for the newly formed duo in the first race: After Guillem Pujeu was hit shortly after the start, the Lamborghini #69 spun off the track and Guillem was only able to rejoin at the end of the field. After a quick catch-up and the driver change to Luka Nurmi, the duo finally finished ninth in the PRO class. In the second race, the fast drivers were again able to secure a position in the Top Ten:

They started the race on P13 and were waved off as eighth. A top performance of the two young drivers.

The season’s crowning glory: Watt and Balthasar set an exclamation mark

Leipert Motorsport finished the season finale with another highlight: After the two PRO drivers Noah Watt and Sebastian Balthasar on the Lamborghini #2 crossed the finish line in eighth place in the first race, they let it rip again at the end. On Sunday, Noah Watt started from third place and was able to hand over to Sebastian Balthasar in P3 after several changes of places and exciting duels. He took the lead shortly afterwards and saw the chequered flag with a four second lead. The last overall victory was the crowning glory for the whole team in the not always easy motorsport season 2020 due to the Corona restrictions.

Leipert Motorsport says goodbye into the winter break

With the last race victory of the year 2020, Leipert Motorsport is now taking a short winter break after the successful finish of the DTM Trophy and the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe. A successful year has been completed by the Wergberger team, which has already packed the container for the upcoming races of the 24h Series in the United Arab Emirates with two Italian bulls. The first race of the 2021 season – the 24h race in Dubai – will be held in early January, closely followed by the 6h race in Abu Dhabi.
