Strategic Continental Tire Challenge Race Ends in Triumph for Team TGM, Heartbreak for RS1

In typical IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge fashion, Saturday’s WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca 120 wasn’t decided until the checkered flag flew.

With championship implications on the line, the final 10 minutes of the two-hour race featured the top four Grand Sport (GS) cars running within two seconds of each other. The leading No. 28 RS1 Porsche Cayman GT4 MR of Dillon Machavern had paced the field for a majority of the final hour of the race, yet in the mirror loomed the No. 57 Winward Racing / HTP Motorsport Mercedes-AMG GT4 of Christian Hohenadel.

McCumbee Returns to Road America with New Look Hoping for Same Success

As the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge rolls into Road America for the ninth of 12 rounds on the 2018 calendar, the competition across all three classes is tighter than ever and anyone will have a shot to bring home the victory.
