Shea Holbrook is no stranger to the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series, and with her announcement Thursday with her 2018 plans, everyone in that paddock will be seeing a lot more of her.
Precision Performance Motorsports made the announcement yesterday that she will be making her full-season series debut in two weeks at Mid-Ohio. Martin Barkey will be her teammate in the No. 67 Lamborghini Huracán Evo for all six races this year.
She made the announcement on her Instagram feed (@sheaholbrook) writing, “Very excited to announce I’m joining the @lamborghinisc @thesupertrofeo paddock full season with @precisionperf and co-driver @martinbarkey! Hugely grateful to bring along with my longtime sponsors @bubbaburger, @lucasoilproducts and @coolshirt_systems! Also stoked to share the @mbrp_powersports signage with Martin!
She added in the post “Words cannot describe how appreciative I am for this opportunity. A tremendous and I mean tremendous amount of work has gone into the program! A change in the right direction for me and those involved. I cannot wait to start at @officialmidohio for the @imsa_racing weekend May 4-5!!!”
The team, owned by Rick Gdovic, is expected to be one of multiple entries after they acquired the assets of DAC Racing. The Gdovic-lead team had been running in the NASCAR Xfinity Series previously and is making a move to Super Trofeo in 2018.
“We are thrilled to welcome Shea into our PPM family, and to be a part of her Super Trofeo Series debut,” PPM team manager Sunny Voelker told Sportscar365.com. “We are confident that her passion for racing will be brought to the forefront as she takes the next step in her racing career.”
Holbrook raced twice in the series last year, teaming up with Pippa Mann, making her debut at Road American and then running at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
The 2018 Lamborghini Super Trofeo Series holds its first two races on May 5th and 6th at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Friday’s race begins at 6:10 p.m EDT and the race on Saturday starts at 10:25 a.m. EDT.
