Robichon Fights His Way to Weekend Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama Sweep At VIRginia International Raceway

DANVILLE, Va. – In the three races prior to Sunday’s Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama round at VIRginia International Raceway, Zacharie Robichon had a relatively easy time en route to victory in each race. 

Each time – in both races at Road America two weeks ago and on Saturday here at VIR – Robichon started from the pole and led every lap. However, it became clear within the first two minutes of Sunday’s 45-minute timed race that this time it would be much more difficult for the Canadian.

Standing in for the sidelined Will Hardeman in the No. 19, Robichon made his first appearance of the season in the GT3 Cup Challenge USA doubleheader at Road America.
