The 2017 champion of the highest class, Loris Spinelli and the Colombian Juan Perez scored three wins out of four races with the third car of Antonelli Motorsport. Takashi Kasai, victorious at Monza together with Philipp Wlazik with the colors of VS Racing, has to recover a gap of 14 points over the previously mentioned drivers, but at Misano the Japanese will share the cockpit with the American August MacBeth. Immediately behind, by only three points, is the Scandinavian duo of the Target Racing team formed by the “rookie” Simon Larsson and the 2016 PRO champion Dennis Lind. Then, there is the other pairing of Vincenzo Sospiri Racing made up of Edoardo Liberati and Hans-Peter Koller, who took their first podium at Silverstone and finished second in class in Race 2, after the Italian had been the fastest of all in Q2. However, the protagonists could also be the two crews of Iron Lynx Motorsport that took to the podium in England, namely the one consisting of Lorenzo Bontempelli and Emanuele Zonzini and that formed by Stefano Colombo and Francesca Linossi.
So far, there have been four different winners in the Lamborghini Cup, in which the Dutchman Gerard Van der Horst will challenge again his teammate and compatriot William Van Deyzen.
