Lamborghini has released a statement following Sheena Monk’s accident in Saturday’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America race at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, citing that all operating systems were found to be functioning appropriately in her car.
Monk lost control of her Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO in the opening minutes of the race, slamming head-on into the barrier at the Corkscrew, which vaulted the car into the air.
The Wayne Taylor Racing driver, who was awake and alert, was airlifted to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, a level one trauma center in San Jose, where she is in stable condition.
Despite initial television reports indicating a possible brake failure, it turned out not to be the case upon initial data analysis completed, according to the Italian manufacturer.
“Our thoughts are with Sheena Monk as she recovers from yesterday’s accident in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America race at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca,” the statement read.
“Upon initial analysis of the car data following the accident, all of the operating systems were found to be functioning appropriately, as did the car’s safety systems during, and after, impact.
“All of us at Lamborghini are thankful for the safety of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo race cars.”

“I have yet to review what happened with my accident yesterday at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca but I’m extremely grateful for the safety and strength of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo,” Monk said.
“I’d like to thank my family, my coach Katherine Legge, the team at Wayne Taylor Racing, IMSA, the track marshals, safety crew, Medi-vac unit, and the amazing staff at Valley Medical Center for assisting me in such tremendous fashion.
“I’d also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the racing fans who expressed concern for my wellbeing as well as positivity for a speedy recovery.”
