Most of our fans didn’t realize that before VIR, Migliore Motorsports had a slight setback at Road America in the second race on Sunday, August 7th. The 2015 Lamborghini Huracan car had to have a new rear sub-frame welded on, new engine installed, as well as the whole rear left side replaced. With no time for the team to come back to the Migliore Motorsports shop located in Lathrop, California, the car was repaired at Chicago Performance and Tuning with team friend Al Uscinski. The rear sub-frame was repaired at Karosserie in Wayne, PA.
Once the sub-frame was repaired on August 17th, the car returned to its temporary shop with the Migliore Crew and team owner Nico Castellaccio, Albert Watkins, Kyle Kavanagh and Loren Burgess, whom all worked tirelessly for three days to have the car ready and in tip top shape for the next race at Virginia International Raceway, August 27th where James placed 2nd in his class.
Nico Castellaccio Migliore Motorsports team owner: “I am always amazed at the caliber of our team. We just have such an amazing crew. These guys know how to make things happen in a time crunch. We were also lucky to have the help of Molly Dickson, Luna Ferrari and Barbara Paolini of Lamborghini making sure all the parts made it to the temporary shop in time for us to finish.”
The next Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo America event will be Sept. 14-16 at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
