Q&A with Prestige Performance Driver, Jonathan Cecotto
How did you become involved in racing?
My dad was racing all his life, both motorbikes and cars. Eventually my bigger brother started
racing as well. Since I was born, I was always influenced by my brother and my dad racing, and
so it was nearly inevitably that I wanted to start as well. At my 4th birthday I received a go-kart,
and that’s how it all began.
What is your favorite racing memory?
I have many good memories from racing. My first victory for example in Karting in Lignano,
Italy. The day I tested a single seater for the first time in Lausitzring, Germany. Last year I also
had fantastic memories like the 2 races I won in Silverstone in the European Lamborghini Super
Trofeo series, and my first pole position last year which was my first time in Monza for me and
first race of the year.
What division do you compete in for Lamborghini Super Trofeo? (Pro/Pro-Am/LB Cup)
In the PRO category, together with Trent Hindman.
Tell us more about the car you’re driving. What type of Lamborghini is it? What makes it so well
equipped for the track?
It’s the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo – EVO. Let’s say It’s the racing version of the street
Lamborghini Huracan, but with: high performing brakes, improved aerodynamics and greater
downforce, equipped with all safety requirements like roll cage and six point safety belt, slick
tires and much more!
Out of all the tracks: Mid Ohio, Watkins Glen, Road America, VIR, or Laguna Seca, do you have
a favorite? Why?
I have never raced in any of those tracks before, except for Mid-Ohio which I raced in beginning
of May. From what I heard, Watkins Glen will be one of the coolest tracks of the season. I’m very
curious to drive my first laps there during the race weekend end of June.
What are your goals for the 2018 Super Trofeo season?
Like every driver on the grid, the ultimate goal is to win. A part from that, it’s important for me
to learn as much as possible and improve my driving skills.
