Flying Lizard Returns to Lamborghini Super Trofeo with Expanded Effort

SONOMA, Calif. (February 14, 2023) – Following a thrilling championship-winning debut in Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America in 2022, Flying Lizard Motorsports will return this year for its sophomore season in the series with an expanded four-car Huracán Super Trofeo Evo2 effort.

Tom Tait will be back in the red and green No. 64 Emerald Center entry, and LB Cup Champion Slade Stewart will advance to the Pro/Am class with Andy Lee, racing the No. 14 pink unicorn Lamborghini. Longtime Lizards Chris Bellomo and Johannes van Overbeek will team up in a singular entry in the No. 68, and Paul Nemschoff and Marc Miller will round out the team’s lineup, racing together in the Pro/Am class.

“Last season was our first year in this series and to come away with several podiums, wins, and a class championship speaks volumes about our program,” said Program Manager Darren Law. “We have established a great relationship with Lamborghini in both the Super Trofeo Series and other GT Series that we compete in, we enjoy working with them and they have a great program with this series. We have stacked the deck this year with several cars and have a great group of drivers. The series is ultra-competitive so with the support we have from Lamborghini Newport Beach and our drivers we will be pushing hard and look forward to continued success this season.”

Tom Tate became the first driver to join the Lizard’s new Super Trofeo program in 2022 and became part of the effort’s strong foundation in the series. He progressed with every race, earning three top-five finishes in his rookie season. Returning to the Am class, Tait will continue his trajectory, now with the advantage of a season full of experience with the No. 64 Emerald Center Lamborghini and the tracks on the 2023 calendar.

When Tait joined the Lizard program, he brought in his friend Slade Stewart, who almost immediately went viral in the sports car racing community for his pink unicorn Lamborghini, which he wrapped at the behest of his daughter; a family tradition the father does with each of his kids. The car became a hit with fans of all ages, and the growing fanbase celebrated Stewart’s on-track success. The unicorn livery celebrated four wins and seven podiums, earning the LB Cup class championship at the Portimão, Portugal season finale. This season, Stewart’s coach, Andy Lee will suit up to race alongside him in the Pro/Am class. Lee will also be racing in the team’s GT4 America efforts for a second season.

After racing with the team for many years in their various Porsche racing series, multiple-time champion Chris Bellomo will step into the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series in the Pro/Am class, excited for a new challenge in his sports car racing career. His longtime coach and former Lizard driver, Johannes van Overbeek will return as a driver to the team where he earned nine wins and 38 podiums in the American Le Mans Series, 24 Hours of Le Mans, and 25 Hours of Thunderhill.

Fresh off his freshman season racing Porsches with the team, Paul Nemschoff will also step up into the Super Trofeo series in the Pro/Am class, alongside his coach as his co-driver, Marc Miller. Nemschoff had a successful 2022 season in the Porsche Sprint Challenge, earning three wins and five second-place finishes and coming in second place in the overall championship. He and Miller, who most recently finished fourth at the Rolex 24 At Daytona, will drive together in the Pro/Am class.

The 2022 season will again feature five North American doubleheader race weekends, in support to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The final two races for the North America series will take place at the Lamborghini World Finals at Autodromo Vallelunga Piero Taruffi, Italy, where all the competitors from the various Super Trofeo series will compete for the title of world champion. The season will begin May 12-14 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca and conclude November 16-17 in Italy.
