DOUBLE WIN FOR THE 570S GT4 AT ROAD AMERICA

GT4 customer team GMG Racing enjoyed a highly successful trip to Wisconsin for the Pirelli World Challenge GTS series’ weekend at Road America. Driver George Kurtz won the AM class in both races at the wheel of the 570S GT4, the second of which was a 1-2 for McLaren, with customer team KPR taking second place on the podium.

While the heavily-interrupted Race 2 was a comfortable win for Kurtz, Race 1 was a tight affair, in which he crossed the line P2 in AM after a move made in the dying minutes by a competitor. But he would regain the win after the race, following a stewards’ decision to penalise his rival for avoidable contact. Behind, it was a double podium for the 570S GT4, Mark Klenin in the KPR car finished P3 in AM, after starting P6.

In Race 2, which saw multiple safety cars and later a red flag for incidents, Kurtz led the class from lights-to-flag, while Klenin fought his way from P3 to P2 to make it a formation finish in the class for the two McLaren customer teams.

Pirelli World Challenge’s GT class was also in action at Road America. While the ultimate pace eluded Factory Driver Alvaro Parente’s K-PAX Racing 650S GT3 during the meeting, he was able to steer the car to P9 and P6 overall in the two 50-minute sprint races. His efforts awarded him valuable points for the championship fight.

Strakka Racing's quartet of 650S GT3s were also in action last weekend in the south of France. The team pushed hard in the 1000km of Circuit Paul Ricard - the final Blancpain Endurance Cup race before the Total 24 Hours of Spa next month.

The highest finishing 650S GT3 was the #43 of Factory Driver Jonny Kane, Academy Driver David Fumanelli and Sam Tordoff, which came home P16.
