Hedman Takes PWC Title Campaign To Streets Of Toronto

A roller-coaster weekend at Road America saw DragonSpeed Ferrari GT3 driver Henrik Hedman grab sole possession of second place in the Pirelli World Challenge GT-A (amateur) class points despite frustration at losing the chance of scoring his first victory in the series.

Excelling as always in the rain, Hedman would have claimed his maiden pole position by 0.7s had not the organisers decided that the qualifying session was too wet for times to count. With grid positions determined by the point standings, Henrik was relegated to 12th overall and third in GT-A for the start. The Florida-based Swede carved his way through the traffic and spray to take the class lead on lap 4, only to suffer a high-speed off at the Kink before completing another tour.

The stalwart DragonSpeed crew set to repairing the damage overnight, allowing Hedman to line up for another wet start for Sunday’s race. Finesse to the fore, Henrik moved into the class lead on lap 12 after Tim Pappas pitted with a punctured tire, but lost out to the Lamborghini of Marcelo Hahn in traffic three laps later to finish runner-up in GT-A at the checkered flag. Hedman’s third podium result of the season meant he left Road America a solid second in the class standings to Pappas.

Heading into the series’ next double-header this weekend around the streets of Toronto’s Exhibition Place, driver and team are aiming to build on the momentum created at Road America to battle for the class win and shrink Pappas’ 49-point advantage in the GT-A standings.

Henrik Hedman: “It felt good at Road America to run in P1 again, and I’d like to think I can do the same here – and hold on to the lead this time! As the last race showed, one weekend can have a really big effect on the points, so there’s everything to play for as we start the second half of the season.”

Elton Julian: “It was disappointing not to take our first win at Road America, but I’m super proud of the resilience Henrik and the team showed in bouncing back from the accident there. We all know this a championship-quality effort and we’re coming to Toronto with our determination and confidence at a new high.”
