K-Pax Racing Driver Robert Thorne Pilots McLaren Race Car To Podium Finish At Sonoma Raceway

K-PAX Racing, the only team to field closed-wheel McLaren race cars in North America in the last 30 years, captured its second podium finish this season as driver Robert Thorne piloted his McLaren 12C GT3 to a third-place finish Sunday at Sonoma Raceway.

“A huge thanks to everyone at K-PAX Racing for their hard work,” said Thorne, competing in his first year at the top-tier GT class of the Pirelli World Challenge series. “Developing new cars for a series is always tough, but our team’s engineers have been relentless in getting our cars where they need to be.”

Thorne qualified third at Sonoma and held tightly to his starting position. He completed the race under caution due to an accident on the course, securing his third top-five finish of the season and moving into seventh in the drivers’ points standings.

“We anticipate our team having a strong finish to the season next month at Miller Motorsports Park (Sept. 12-13 in Tooele, Utah),” said Thorne. “There’s been a steep learning curve with the McLarens, and we’ve been improving every race.”
