Adrian Newey Joins Driver Line-Up For Silverstone  Formula One technical guru to compete in second round of Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo

Adrian Newey, the Formula One technical guru, will be the star attraction at the second roundof the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo at his home track of Silverstone on 2-3 June.

The 53-year-old Englishman has overseen drivers' and teams' world championships in the past two seasons.

In all Newey has masterminded eight Formula One Constructors' titles and helped some of the world's best drivers to numerous championship victories.

He will share the #1 Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo 570hp V10 race car with Alberto Sabbatini, Editor in Chief of Italian magazine Autosprint.

Behind the calm demeanour of Formula One's leading technical brain lurks a fierce competitor – particularly as a race driver in his spare time. He has competed at the Le Mans 24 Hours and in 2010 he drove his own Red Bull Racing RB5 Formula One race car, a gift from the team, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Swiss newcomer Stefano Comini dominated the opening round of the 2012 season in Monza on April 14-15 with victory in both races. He leads the drivers' points standings with 30 points with Gianluca Carboni and the 2011 champion Cedric Leimer tied for second place on 20 points. Belgium's Bernard Delhez and Frenchman Dimitri Enjalbert are third with 17 points.

The teams' table is led by Bonaldi Motorsport on 30 points with Autocarrozzeria Imperiale SRL, Touring Auto 2000 SRL and Autovitesse Garage R. Affolter locked together in second place on 20 points. Heico Gravity-Charouz (12) and Lamborghini Dehler Team Germany (10) round out the standings.
