ALLIANCE RACING EARNS FIRST CAREER LAMBORGHINI SUPER TROFEO NORTH AMERICA WIN AT LAGUNA SECA

Share this Post

It was a weekend to remember for Alliance Racing. After purchasing Lamborghinis and making their Super Trofeo debut in March at the Sebring International Raceway, the two-car effort from Indianapolis scored their first career series win at the hands of Al Morey IV and Cole Kleck this past weekend at the Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca.

“It was a great weekend for the team and our drivers,” expressed Team Owner Toney Edwards. “It was a big undertaking to get started and get to where we are today, but after a lot of hard work and long hours, getting a win and a one-two finish is one of the best feelings I have had in motorsports.”

With qualifying for races one and two taking place on Saturday, Al Morey and Cole Kleck slotted into the second position after the end of qualifying one to earn a front row starting spot for race one, while the Alliance Racing sister car of Andre Lagartixa and Robert Soroka scored the ninth fastest time. Qualifying two saw Morey and Kleck earn the fifth fastest time of the session and inside row three starting position, with Lagartixa and Soroka flanking them in row three in the sixth position.

Rolling off the grid Saturday evening for the first wheel-to-wheel race of the weekend, Al Morey and Cole Kleck earn Alliance Racing’s first-ever Lamborghini Super Trofeo victory, winning the AM class. Taking advantage of their front-row starting spot, Morey and Kleck proved their speed and climbed to the podium’s top step. Not to be outdone, Andre Lagartixa and Robert Soroka had a spirited drive forward to join them on the podium in second, scoring the first-ever win for Alliance Racing and their first-ever one-two finish in Super Trofeo competition.

Back to the track Sunday, it proved to be another winning day for Alliance Racing, Morey, and Kleck as the potent duo rocketed forward from their fifth-place starting position to score their second win in as many days despite only having the eighth-fastest lap time of the race. Lagartixa and Soroka began their quest for back-to-back podium results but had to settle for sixth when the checkered flag flew and showed their speed by earning the fastest race lap of the AM class.

Following race two, the race-winning car of Kleck and Morey was disqualified due to a non-performance-enhancing issue with the ride height. Too low by a millimeter, the race win was stripped from the Alliance Racing duo.

With an official victory and two podiums this past weekend, Alliance Racing will look to carry that momentum into the next event, June 21-23, at the famed Watkins Glen International.
