TPC Racing Picks Up Another Pair of Podiums in Road America IMSA Lamborghini Super Trofeo Doubleheader

ELKHART LAKE, Wisconsin (August 9, 2022)– TPC Racing and its trio of Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 teams combined to lead overall race laps and score another pair of podium finishes in this past weekend’s IMSA Lamborghini Super Trofeo doubleheader at Road America.

The podium showings came in Saturday’s caution-plagued 50-minute race and followed a pair of second-place finishes team driver Michael Levitas secured a week earlier in the Porsche Sprint Challenge North America doubleheader on the 4.048-mile Wisconsin road course.

This past Saturday’s victory lane visits were earned by Scott Schmidt in the No. 38 DSC Sport/Erin Levitas Foundation Lamborghini Huracán and co-drivers Wesley Slimp and Tyler Hoffman in the No. 9 HNTB Companies Lamborghini Huracán.

Schmidt continued his recent run of podiums results with a second-place finish in the LB Cup class on Saturday. The runner-up showing gives Schmidt a solid record of four podium finishes in the span of the last five Super Trofeo races. He has also racked up a third, another second and his first Super Trofeo victory in late June at Watkins Glen International.

Slimp and Hoffman returned to victory lane in the Am class for the first time since a third-place finish at NOLA Motorsports Park in May. Slimp and Hoffman also join Schmidt as TPC Racing Lamborghini Super Trofeo race winners this year after picking up the LB Cup class-win in last April’s season-opening race at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. Following the win, Slimp and Hoffman were moved up to the Am class.

Both of TPC’s Saturday podium players were looking for even better results in Sunday’s final 50-minute race, but it was the third TPC entry of Billy Johnson in the No. 71 DSC Sport/Erin Levitas Foundation Lamborghini Huracán in the early spotlight.

After a red flag scrubbed what would have been a pole and track record lap in qualifying, Johnson used the start of Sunday’s race to show he and the TPC No. 71 were among the fastest combinations in the field. Taking the green flag from the outside of the front row, Johnson battled for the lead from the start and led the opening six laps of the race.

Sunday’s race was run in mixed wet-and-dry conditions that produced another show of yellow flags and even a red-flag pause that saw the field switch to rain tires. The slow-downs and stoppages didn’t work with TPC’s and Johnson’s strategy, and unfortunately dropped the No. 71 deep into the crowded end of the field. Johnson continued after an on-track incident but his eventual seventh-place Pro class finish was far from indicative of his race-leading pace.

Next up for TPC Racing in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series is the year’s final North American race weekend at VIRginia International Raceway, August 26 – 28.

The series concludes November 3 – 6 in Portimão in Southern Portugal where both the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America final rounds and the 2022 World Finals will be held. Current plans call for TPC Racing to compete in Portugal in the North American finale and World Finals.

Harris Levitas, TPC Racing Director of Race Operations: “The team did an amazing job. A huge thanks to everybody on the TPC Racing team for all of the hard work they have put in all year and throughout this past weekend. The Road America event went well for us in some ways and in other ways it was just a lot of those racing ‘things’ that happen. The timing didn’t quite work out for us on Sunday. Billy made and amazing pass for the lead at the start of the race. He opened a gap but unfortunately a full-course caution came out and brought everybody back together. We pitted, and as soon as we left pitlane, it went yellow, then red and we never had enough time to make everything back up. After the red, there was a little contact with another car, one of those racing incidents, but overall everything was great. I am also proud of Scott, Tyler and Wesley for the great performances on Saturday. We will live to fight another day. We are at VIR later this month and we are also looking forward to TPC Racing’s first World Finals in Europe in November.”

Tyler Hoffman, Driver – No. 9 HNTB Companies Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2: “Overall it was a good weekend at Road America. Big thanks to TPC Racing for their hard work and giving us a good Lamborghini all weekend long. Lots of yellow and red flags made everything a bit unpredictable, so I am very happy with a P3 and P5 finish. Sunday’s race was a tough one as we had the pace to win and drove through the field twice, but that’s racing. On to VIR, which is heaven on earth. Hands down, my favorite track. It’s nice these races are a bit closer so we can take this momentum and hunger into the fifth stop of the tour.”

Billy Johnson, Driver – No. 71 DSC Sport/Erin Levitas Foundation Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2: “I am feeling pretty good. The TPC Racing guys have been working hard all year. They keep going through the car and finding new things on it, and some parts that we have needed for awhile have finally showed up. We finally got those on the car and now we are definitely in the hunt. We had a really good lap time and track record pace going in qualifying, which just shows the performance and the ability of the car, then qualifying off pole and passing to take the lead in the second race for the first bit. It all shows we are now in the window, in the hunt. We are looking forward to taking that momentum to VIR, and hopefully we will have a little bit better luck and get one of these things done.”
