The MINI JCW Team will head to Road America for round seven of the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge. The 14-turn, 4-mile course in Elkhart Lake, WI provides a very different challenge compared to the last event at Lime Rock Park. At over twice the length their will be plenty of space for the drivers to flex their muscles.
Historically the team has run well at Road America, but simply haven’t gotten the expected results. Last season’s event is a prime example. The team had all three cars in good position to battle for the podium when a thunderstorm brought an early end to racing action. This year, the team hopes to ride the wave of success they’ve had and change their fortune at Road America.
With the season winding down a good run will be necessary. While MINI currently has the lead in the manufacturers standings, Mark Pombo and the 37 duo of Mike LaMarra and Mat Pombo still have some work to do if they want to take the drivers championship lead.
The Road America 120 takes place on Saturday August 4th at 5:05 PM EDT. You can watch the race live on IMSA.tv, or on the IMSA mobile app. Qualifying will be on IMSA radio and you can keep track of timing and scoring for all events at scoring.imsa.com.
