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.
Mayhem at the Mountain
After his previous two rounds were ruined by connection issues, SDC Motorsport driver Nigel Baines was determined to get his championship challenge back on track, and to that end he captured the pole in the Shootout before Monday night's main event. Unfortunately for Bainesy, he was disconnected Lap 1, Turn 1. Tony Kloosterman profited and led for 4 laps, but experienced hardware issues with his shifter and found himself down the running order. Eventually, 9th starting Greg Carr worked his way through the field brilliantly to lead 32 of 40 laps to win the Get Dirty MX Bathurst 250 and capture the title, 'King of the Mountain.'
Chris Hogan continued his strong return to the GV8 series with an excellent run to second place, followed by Isaac de Figueiredo, who started near the back of the field.
Jason Lundy put in his best performance of the season with a well earned 4th place finish, narrowly holding off the hard-charging 'Silent Stalker,' Glenn Sidman. Bathurst's unforgiving concrete walls claimed the cars of Mario Girard, Joao Oliveira, Kyle Herrin and Marc Meyers.
Next week the boys head off to Mid-Ohio for a double header.
