This weekend the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East 2019 racing championship will kick off at the Dubai Autodrome, with OPPO—a leading global smartphone brand—bringing UAE fans even closer to the action. The Middle East racing series first debuted in 2017 and runs alongside three long-standing continental series in Europe, Asia, and North America.
This year will be the first Lamborghini Super Trofeo season since Automobili Lamborghini and OPPO announced a global partnership covering a range of brand activities and product innovations. This included the launch of an OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition in 2018, which was the first smartphone to include OPPO’s proprietary SuperVOOC flash charging technology—enabling a full recharge in just 35 minutes as the fastest smartphone charging technology in the world.
The partnership will come alive again at the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East races as OPPO invites racing fans, partners, and celebrities from the region to experience the thrill of Lamborghini Super Trofeo live from the track.
Races will begin at the Dubai Autodrome on February 15 and 16 and then move to Yas Island in Abu Dhabi from February 21 to 23. For the first time, the winners of each class will be admitted to the World Finals, Jerez de la Frontera (Spain) – October 24 – 27, the culmination of the sports season of Sant’Agata Bolognese. Racing fans can attend the two UAE events free of charge.
“Today OPPO and Lamborghini share core company values, such as the relentless pursuit of perfection in product design and user experience,” says Any Shi, President of OPPO Middle East & Africa. “Visitors to the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East 2019 will see those values come to life on the track, and together we are thrilled to be giving OPPO fans this unique experience.”
Automobili Lamborghini has been part of the evolution of the automotive industry and has become an iconic brand across the globe. Lamborghini’s choice of OPPO as an exclusive smartphone partner was announced in June 2018, with the OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition making its way to the UAE in September 2018.
The partnership was in part inspired by OPPO’s VOOC Flash Charge technology. The industry’s first flash charging system implements a more efficient and powerful charging design, making it safer to use OPPO phones while charging and allowing for much faster charging speeds than ever before. The technology is now used in over 100 million smartphones worldwide.
This year OPPO will continue to adjust its product line to offer more premium series to young consumers in the region. To support that repositioning, OPPO has recently launched its second regional hub in Dubai as its new center of operations for the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.
