Strakka Lines Up Third For WEC Six Hours Of Nurburgring


Ahead of tomorrow’s Six Hours of Nürburgring, Strakka Racing’s alternative line up of Jonny Kane and Lewis Williamson delivered the team’s best qualifying performance of the season to secure third place in LMP2 . The duo achieved a combined average time of 1.49.762 in the Strakka’s Gibson 015S, underlining the strong WEC debut for Williamson, who was driving the car for first time since his brief outing at the Rookie Test last year. “It’s been a really good start to racing in WEC and Strakka has done a great job to prepare me for the weekend,” says Williamson. “There was a bit more in the tank but it was important not make any mistakes and I wanted to use the seat time to get a feel for the car in the damp conditions. The track was constantly changing and seeing the Audi go off in front me just showed how slippery it was but we came through it with a strong P3. I’ve still got loads to learn like dealing with the traffic in front and behind but I’m happy.”

Corvette Racing Captures Historic 100th Victory In IMSA Northeast GP At Lime Rock Park


Steven Cole Smith, IMSA Wire Service

LAKEVILLE, Conn. - With 31 cars racing on the shortest track on the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship schedule - divided into three classes, all three lapping at different speeds - there was no question the two-hour, 40-minute Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut would be action-packed.

Boy, was it.

Though the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race earlier in the day managed to run for two and a half hours without a caution flag, the first yellow fell on the IMSA WeatherTech Northeast Grand Prix before the cars reached the first turn of the first lap. After that, the key word was survival. "Keep your nose clean and stay out of trouble," said Tommy Milner, co-driver with Oliver Gavin in the GT Le Mans No. 4 Chevrolet Corvette Racing C7.R.

And that’s what Milner and Gavin did, giving this Corvette team its 100th win since they broke through with that first victory Sept. 2, 2000, at Texas Motor Speedway.

Adding to the honor was the fact that the team car, the No. 3 driven by Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen, finished right behind the No. 4, just 0.975 seconds back. And that marked the 60th time the Corvette team has finished first and second.

Ford Shelby GT350R-C Captures Second Straight At Lime Rock Park, Maxwell, Johnson Extend GS Lead With Third Victory Of Season


LAKEVILLE, Conn. (July 23, 2016) - Scott Maxwell and Billy Johnson took advantage of lightning-fast work in the pits by the Multimatic Motorsports pit crew to score their second consecutive victory at Lime Rock Park on Saturday in the No. 15 Ford Shelby GT350R-C, extending their lead in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Grand Sports (GS) class with their third triumph of the season.

The pair combined to lead four times for 88 of the 150 laps on the fast 1.53-mile seven-turn "classic" layout in the caution-free race.

"We won it in the pits today - our pit stops were superb," Maxwell said. "The car was really good - we were about a half-second off the pace - and Billy and I didn’t make any mistakes. But we gained about five or six seconds on both of our pit stops, and that was enough to win the race."

Maxwell, Johnson Win Second Straight IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Race at Lime Rock Park


Steven Cole Smith, IMSA Wire Service

LAKEVILLE, Conn. - Earlier in the season, it looked like no one could beat the Porsche Cayman GT4 in the Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge GS class, and indeed the No. 33 CJ Wilson Racing Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport of Danny Burkett and Marc Miller qualified on the pole for today’s Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut.

But when the checkered flag fell, it was the No. 15 Multimatic Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R-C of Billy Johnson and Scott Maxwell out front for the second straight race, as the team also won at their home track, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park near Toronto earlier this month.

"This race," Maxwell said, "was really won in the pits. Our pit stops really helped keep us out front."

"I don’t think we had the fastest car out there today," Johnson said. Indeed, they didn’t; that would be the pole-sitting Porsche of Burkett and Miller. That car had the fastest lap of the race - 57.334 seconds - but the winning Shelby Mustang wasn’t far back at 57.434.

WEC 6H Nuerburgring - Qualifying


Qualifying for the 6 Hours of Nürburgring, Round 4 of the World Endurance Championship (WEC), starting tomorrow at 1 p.m., were chaotic and extremely difficult. The wet track and intermittent rain greatly complicated the task of drivers and teams. In GTE-Pro class, by the end of the 20-minute session, the Ferrari 488 GTE number 51 of AF Corse team secured fourth place with James Calado and Gianmaria "Gimmi" Bruni at the wheel, while its sister car, the number 71 of Davide Rigon and Sam Bird, paid for a far-from-ideal choice of tyres and was relegated to seventh place. In GTEAm class fourth place for the no. 83 AF Corse 458 Italia GTE driven by Emmanuel Collard and François Perrodo who will be joined by Rui Aguas for the race.

Aston Martin Racing claims pole at FIA WEC 6 Hours of Nurburgring


Aston Martin Racing has claimed pole position for tomorrow’s 6 Hours of Nürburgring, the fourth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.

With the session taking place on a drying track, the lap times soon tumbled as the #95 V8 Vantage GTE of Nicki Thiim (DN) and Marco Sørensen (DN) claimed pole. After both completed flying laps on the intermediate Dunlop tyre, the team opted to run on slicks as track conditions improved with Thiim at the wheel.

Burkett Captures Pole In Quest For First CJ Wilson Racing Continental Tire Challenge Victory


By Steven Cole Smith, IMSA Wire Service

Is this the weekend?

"That’s been a big topic of conversation in the transporter," said Danny Burkett. "When is our first win coming?"

After all, C.J. Wilson Racing, the team owned by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball pitcher, is used to winning in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge ST class, when they ran Mazda MX-5s.

But after stepping up to the faster GS class in 2016, and a pair of Porsche Cayman GT4s, it’s been close, but no cigar.
