Double Porsche Sprint Challenge Podiums and Recent Watkins Glen IMSA Lamborghini Super Trofeo Victory Give TPC Racing Top Momentum Heading into IMSA Road America Weekend


 

Fresh off a double-podium performance in Porsche Sprint Challenge competition last weekend at Road America, TPC Racing has made a quick return to the 4.048-mile Wisconsin road course for this weekend's IMSA Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America doubleheader, August 4 - 7.



Michael Levitas scored a pair of 991-class Porsche Sprint Challenge finishes at Road America last Saturday and Sunday to pave the way for this weekend's Lamborghini doubleheader, which includes three TPC Racing Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO2 teams in three different classes.



TPC's Lamborghini squad brings some recent podium power of its own to Road America this weekend following a pair of visits to victory lane last month at Watkins Glen International.

 

The Glen highlight was the first Lamborghini Super Trofeo win for Scott Schmidt who stood on the top step of the podium for the first time with an LB Cup class victory in Friday's first race. Schmidt backed up the win with a second-place finish at The Glen on Saturday in the No. 38 DSC Sport/Erin Levitas Foundation Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO2.



The double podium gave Schmidt a solid record of three podiums in four races since switching to LB Cup prior to May's races at Nola Motorsport Park. He looks for more top-three success this weekend in the twin 50-minute sprints Saturday and Sunday.



TPC's contender in the Super Trofeo Am class is the No. 9 HNTB Companies Lamborghini Huracan co-driven by Wesley Slimp and Tyler Hoffman. A race ending caution thwarted a late charge by Hoffman in the second Glen sprint that would have improved on the opening race's ninth-place finish, but he and Slimp come to Road America ready to return to the podium form that earned the duo a second-place Am-class finish at NOLA Motorsports Park in May.

 


Billy Johnson drives the No. 71 DSC Sport/Erin Levitas Foundation Lamborghini Huracan in the top-tier Pro class and looks for his first podium of the season this weekend after ample testing in a completely reworked and improved Lamborghini. Johnson's best finish of the season was a fourth place in the first race of The Glen weekend.



Saturday's first 50-minute Super Trofeo race is scheduled to start at 9:50 a.m. CDT with Sunday's finale scheduled to go green at 1:55 p.m. CDT.





Harris Levitas, TPC Racing Director of Race Operations
: "Our TPC Racing team had a successful test event at Road America a few weeks ago. We were able to find more in the cars, which was a great positive from the test. Billy Johnson played a big role in helping the drivers on the team get up to speed with the Road America circuit, and I think that everyone gained a lot from that and it should bring good momentum into the race weekend.


In the Pro Class, we have been hard at work to make the No. 71 TPC Racing/DSC Sport/Erin Levitas Foundation Lamborghini Super Trofeo more competitive for Billy. I think what we found with the No. 71 translated really well to the other cars. In the AM Class, Wesley Slimp and Tyler Hoffman have made amazing progress in the No. 9 HNTB Companies Lamborghini Super Trofeo car.



I think that they will be in a solid position to start off the weekend strong. Scott Schmidt comes into Road America after his first race win and a podium finish in the last round. He has had a lot of seat time at Road America over the last two weeks, including Porsche Sprint Challenge last weekend, and I think that he will have a great chance this race weekend after some strong runs recently."

 



Scott Schmidt, Driver No. 38 DSC Sport/Erin Levitas Foundation Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2:
"Our Watkins Glen win absolutely gives us more confidence. In the Lamborghini, we have had six races this season and podiumed three times. We have had a first, second and third, and that's just an incredible accomplishment by the team, all their efforts, and my ability to absorb what the driver coaches are saying and following their leads. So, really looking forward to Road America.


We tested earlier this month, and the two Porsche Sprint Challenge races last weekend combined with that really has us going into the Lamborghini weekend as well tuned as I have ever been for a race. Racing the Porsche 992 just last weekend at Road America will really help my ability to carry entry speed and bring improved racecraft into this weekend's race."





Wesley Slimp, Driver - No. 9 HNTB Companies Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2: "
Testing with the team at Road America was absolutely crucial to bolster our efforts this weekend. We spent a lot of time getting the car dialed in, and because of that we’ll be able to unload a really fast car for the first practice session. This will allow us to really focus on the finer details of our driving during the race weekend as opposed to worrying about setup. Thanks to the whole team, I feel really confident with my pace leaving the test.


These next two events are very important for our championship pursuits. Everything is starting to come together, and I think we can really make an impact for the rest of the season. Our level of performance is ever-increasing, and I believe we’ll have a competitive car for the rest of the season. The sky is the limit for this program. Road America is definitely one of my favorite tracks. Last year I made my sprint racing debut at Road America with Porsche Sprint Challenge, and I came away with a podium in my first ever sprint race.



I’m excited to add some more great memories at such a special track. The EVO2 is such a fun car to drive at Road America because it has real power that accelerates you quickly into the braking zones at the end of each long straightaway."





Tyler Hoffman, Driver - No. 9 HNTB Companies Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2:
"We learned a lot in testing here at Road America, and that brings a substantial amount of confidence going into the fourth weekend of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Championship.


This is an important weekend. We will need to execute at a high level to achieve our season goals. Definitely a must-perform scenario. Road America has lots of appeal in these Lamborghinis. Long straightaways, fast corners, and deep braking zones making for one hell of a race track!"

 



Billy Johnson, Driver - No. 71 DSC Sport/Erin Levitas Foundation Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2:
"It's great working with TPC Racing. We have been doing a lot of testing this year. We are learning the new Lamborghini platform, especially because we got my car just before the first race of the year.


The guys have been working hard just going through it, a lot of testing figuring it out, and we finally got a fresh motor in the car prior to this weekend's race. The motor that was in there had a bit of time on it, so I am optimistic we will be competitive in a straight line. We also found some more stuff through additional testing and finally got some parts to swap some things out in the suspension.



So, hopefully stronger performance in the straights and the corners. The Lamborghinis are just a blast to drive at Road America with those long straightaways and all of that horsepower. It's one of the funnest cars I have driven at Road America!"
