Johnson: “It’s Good to Be Back” in Continental Tire Challenge After Roar Before the Rolex 24 Injury

With more than five months in the calendar year already passed, for many it seems the days have flown by. 
 
For Michael Johnson, though, they’ve gone by slowly – painfully slowly.
 
Driving the No. 54 JDC-Miller Motorsports Audi RS3 LMS, Johnson and his co-driver Stephen Simpson planned to contest the full IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge season in the TCR class. Those plans changed during the Roar Before the Rolex 24 At Daytona test in early January.

Flashback Friday: Continental Tire Challenge Drivers, Fathers Recognized at Mid-Ohio

Prior to the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Mid-Ohio 120 last Saturday, a trio of drivers and their fathers posed for a photo during pre-race activities to celebrate their participation in IMSA – in particular, at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course – through the years.

The three father-son duos consisted of John and Corey Fergus, Dave and Dillon Machavern, and David and Dylan Murry.

Marcelli Storms to Mid-Ohio Continental Tire Challenge Win in Impressive Second Straight Victory

A double-digit deficit and a sputtering fuel tank wouldn’t keep Kyle Marcelli from victory in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge on Saturday afternoon.

Marcelli took the reins of the No. 60 Roush Performance / KohR Motorsports Ford Mustang GT4 from co-driver Nate Stacy and found himself over 10 seconds behind leader Patrick Gallagher in the No. 8 Multimatic Motorsports Ford Mustang GT4. Marcelli wiped the deficit clean with just over three minutes remaining in the race, eventually passing Gallagher – whose co-driver Chad McCumbee put the car on pole – to steal the win.

There’s No Place Like Mid-Ohio for Columbus Native Corey Fergus

The return of the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course after a five-year absence is especially sweet for Corey Fergus.

Fergus, who co-drives the No. 69 Motorsports In Action McLaren GT4 in the Grand Sport (GS) class with Jesse Lazare, was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and currently resides and works at a dealership there as well. Coming from a racing family, he was introduced to Mid-Ohio at a young age.

Bodymotion Racing Continues to Evolve with Continental Tire Challenge

The IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge has undergone an evolution in recent years and Mike Bavaro, Team Owner of Bodymotion Racing and President of Bodymotion, Inc., likes what he sees.

Bavaro’s team currently fields two cars in the Continental Tire Challenge – the No. 5 Porsche Cayman GT4 MR in the Grand Sport (GS) class and the No. 21 Porsche Cayman in the Street Tuner (ST) class.

Grahovec, Classic BMW Rising to the Top in Continental Tire Challenge Return

A six-year absence from the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge appears to have had no effect on Toby Grahovec.

In fact, one would have to look back an additional five years for Grahovec’s most recent full-season campaign in the series, which came in the Street Tuner (ST) class in 2007.

Now in the dual role of Team Manager and co-driver of the No. 26 Classic BMW / Vess Energy Group BMW M4 GT4, Grahovec described how the M4 GT4’s unveil in July 2017 was the catalyst for his return to the series.

Two-for-Two for RS1, Compass; MINI Bounces Back to Take Motul Pole Award

Predictability is hard to come by in sports car racing, but in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, it’s safe to say the No. 28 RS1 Porsche Cayman GT4 MR will be a force to be reckoned with week after week in 2018.

Spencer Pumpelly put the defending Grand Sport (GS) class championship-winning car on the front row for Friday’s Alan Jay Automotive Network 120 at Sebring International Raceway, which can be streamed live on IMSA.tv or the IMSA mobile app beginning at 2:45 p.m. ET.

Continental Tire Challenge: It’s Anybody’s Game at Sebring

The IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge has only been competing at Sebring International Raceway since 2014, and the records show there’s no rhyme or reason as to who might claim the victory in Friday’s Alan Jay Automotive Network 120.
