Automobili Lamborghini has announced a new format for the 2019 Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East, which will kick off the 11th edition of the Sant’Agata Bolognese constructor’s one-make championship in the UAE. Marking its third anniversary in the region, the tournament will see two-weekend races held in Dubai and Abu Dhabi on 15-16 February and 22-23 February respectively. For the first time, the winners of each class will automatically progress to the World Final, to be held on the Jerez de la Frontera circuit in Spain on 26 and 27 October.

Each race weekend will comprise two qualifying rounds and three races. Held at the Dubai Autodrome, the first-weekend competition will see 20 Huracán Super Trofeo Evo cars line up on the starting grid on Friday 15 February and take part in two-morning qualifying sessions, followed by 50-minute-long Race 1 at 14:35 hrs local time. Two races are scheduled for the following day, Saturday 16 February, with Race 2 and Race 3 taking place in the morning and the afternoon respectively.

The format will be the same for the second round, which will be held at Abu Dhabi’s spectacular Yas Marina F1 Circuit. Three hot races will be run on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 February, to crown the new champions of the four classes (Pro, Pro-Am, Am and Lamborghini Cup), who will automatically qualify for the World Final for the first time.
