During the last couple of years Germany’s favourite motorsport DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) has just been a playground for Audi and Mercedes, but this year things are starting to liven up a bit.

And that’s because a couple of gorgeous and very fast Lamborghinis will be sharing the calendar with the touring cars! These are the Blancpain backed Gallardo LP560-4 Super Trofeo models, which have their very own championship as well.

Lamborghini’s Director of Brand and Design, Manfred Fitzgerald: “We’re excited to see new teams join the Super Trofeo family for 2010, while competitors from last season will return to defend their honours. The on-track battles were extremely close in 2009, and we’re set for another thrilling season ahead.”

Marc A. Hayek, President and CEO of Blancpain, the series’ title sponsor, commented: “This second season looks eventful and I’m really looking forward to it, starting with the first races in Hockenheim, where the circuit is extremely technical and very fast. I am confident about the results, which we’ll be trying to improve still further this year.”
