Because of the low numbers this season in the GTCC, it will be cancelled effective immediately. Its a sad day here at GRAsim because the GTCC was the starter series here. To fill the time, GRAsim will be hosting GT3 fun races. Times and dates TBA. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Manzar Ends Baines' Dominance
The GV8 headed to Braselton, Georgia for season's first enduro. Nigel Baines and Farooq Manzar got the event off to a cracking start, staging the closest qualifying session in GV8 history; Manzar pipping Bainesy by 0.014 seconds to claim the pole!
Unfortunately for Baines, after trailing Manzar very closely up until the pit window, the #36 SDC Motorsports entry faill victim to internet connectivity issues, effectively ending his chance at 5 wins in a row.
Manzar capitalized on the Welshman's misfortune and took his second win of the season by 42 seconds over Marty Carroll. NQR's Greg Carr took the final step on the podium, leading team mates Glen 'Silent Stalker' Sidman, and boss man Tony Kloosterman in 4th and 5th respectively. Joao Oliveira put in a great drive from 10th to finish 6th and claim top independent honors.
With a third of the races complete, Baines leads Carr by six points in the driver's championship; Carroll, Sidman, and Manzar round out the top 5. In the team's championship, SDC continues to lead NQR, while NQR's B team is holding down the third spot.
Next week, the drivers attack the chicanes of Circuit Gilles Villenueve for a double header event.
