June 4th 2014, Sentul (Indonesia) – Coming after the initial euphoria of the season-start race at Sepang, Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo 2014 Asia Series continues to move south towards ever-hotter climes in preparation for the second race of the season. For the first time this popular-throughout-Asia racing event will race in Indonesia, at the Sentul International Circuit in Java, just south of Jakarta.
Indonesian racing is historically known for short tracks with tight turns. Following this tradition, Sentul International Circuit boasts sharp corners and short straightaways. With the total length of only 4.02 km and width of 15 meters of the Sentul Circuit, the main straightaway is a mere 0.9 km long.
In despite of the difficulties caused by low-banked sharp corners, challenges also come from the heat and humid weather, which may adversely affect both cars and drivers. The light rain forecasted for this weekend may enhance difficulties for drivers during the current rain season in Indonesia.
The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo has come to its third year in Asia, which has been very well welcomed and taken in by fans of the unique Lamborghini and Blancpain lifestyle. Here in Jakarta – Indonesia’s booming capital – members of the local Lamborghini club have been expecting a race in Indonesia ever since the series started in Asia.
Besides the thrilling racing as gentlemen drivers compete to challenge themselves, the enthusiastic Lamborghini fans, including those proud Lamborghini owners in Indonesia, are so excited for this first-ever Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo racing weekend and will gather at Sentul International Circuit for a car parade during the racing weekend, to celebrate their own Lamborghini festival.
Blancpain will also host the guests in a dedicated lounge in an atmosphere cleverly mingling Fine Watchmaking and the art of living. During a tasting session and a conversation with the watchmaker who will be present, they will discover the latest collections from the Manufacture and its exceptional timepieces.
