HINDMAN-AGOSTINI MAKE HISTORY IN IMOLA WORLD FINALS
By: Prestige Performance
Imola, Italy – The Prestige Performance team has made Lamborghini history as the first North American team to be the overall World Final Champions. The time, preparation, and hard work that Pro Class drivers, Trent Hindman, Ricky Agostini and the entire Prestige Performance team has put in to the 2017 Lamborghini Super Trofeo series paid off with an overall win in race 1 and 5th place in race 2 in the Pro-Driver World finals and two overall wins in the Pro driver category of the North American Series. Also we had a 3rd place finish by driver Cameron Cassels in the Lamborghini Cup division for the World Finals.
Race one of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo World Finals saw Ricky Agostini start from pole position with a qualifying time of 1:40.980, and consistently laid down lap times that kept Agostini in the lead before handing the reigns over to teammate Trent Hindman. Hindman left the pits in 2nd place behind 2017 European Champion Mikael Grenier. Hindman stayed close to Grenier during the closing minutes for the race and made the winning pass with just over 2 minutes to go. Agostini and Hindman were formidable “pilotas” bringing home the win. Congrats to the entire Prestige Performance team.
On to Race 2, this time it was Hindman starting the race from 7th place. Hindman managed the pace of the race handing the car over to Agostini at the mandatory pit stop. Agostini was able to make up a couple of positions to a 5th place finish which were enough points to clinch the Lamborghini Super Trofeo World Finals. When Hindman was asked by sportscar365.com’s Ryan Myrehn, he said “We’ve been preparing for the World Finals all year.”
To sum up the World and North American finales in Imola the Prestige Performance / Lamborghini Paramus team is extremely proud for the entire team effort capturing the World Finals Title and for a 2nd year in row the Pro-Drivers Championship, Team Championship and Dealership Championship.
