Red Bull Racing technical director Adrian Newey is taking to the cockpit of a racecar for the second round of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series, scheduled for Silverstone on June 2-3.
The 53-year-old Englishman has secured drivers' and teams' World Championships in the past two seasons. In all Newey has masterminded eight Constructors' titles and helped some of the world's best drivers to numerous championship victories.
He will share the No. 1 Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo 570hp V10 race car with Alberto Sabbatini, Editor in Chief of Italian magazine Autosprint.
Newey has competed as a racer on a number of occasions. In 2010 he drove his own Red Bull Racing RB5 Formula 1 racecar, a gift from the team, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Swiss newcomer Stefano Comini dominated the opening round of the Super Trofeo season in Monza on April 14-15 with victory in both races.
