Montreal Door Doctor driver back in action this weekend at Road America

MONTREAL, QUEBEC – Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama points leader Jesse Lazare from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, will be back behind the wheel of his Door Doctor Kelly-Moss Road and Race Porsche GT3 Cup car this weekend at Road America.

“I really like this track, it is one of the best,” Lazare said of the circuit. “The team and I have put in a massive amount of preparation for this weekend. I expect my car to be the best it has been this year,” an excited Lazare added.

Lazare won 5 of the first 6 rounds of the 2016 Championship in the Platinum class, but at the most recent outing at Watkins Glen he found himself a little off his usual pace. “It was a frustrating weekend on one hand, but positive if I look at it overall. Still, that is behind us now, we have to concentrate on this weekend and try to win both races.” Lazare said.

Lazare, who holds a 16 point lead heading into the weekend, knows just how important this weekend is. “These are rounds 9-10, and as the races count down, every race gets more important than the last.”

Round 9 will start at 4:40 p.m. (CT) Saturday, Aug. 6. Round 10 will begin at 11:15 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 7. Both rounds are 45 minutes. There will be two practices Friday, with qualifying at 8 a.m. Saturday. You can keep up with the action live at www.imsa.com.
