IMSA – Petit Le Mans Atlanta – Last race of the season
Tough but satisfying last race of season held on the legendary Road Atlanta circuit in the state of Georgia.
After a difficult qualifying which saw the PorscheRSR No 912 stating in 8th position, the race has been the field of a long battle for all GTLM category.
The car resulted performant to fight until the end for ten long hours. After spending long stretches on course for a podium spot, Gimmi, Laurens Vanthoor and Earl Bamber were ultimately flagged off as fifth.
Gimmi is already prospected towards 2018. He will start straight away to work on the performance of the car together with the team and the other Porsche works drivers with the aim to compete on high level next year.
driver race quotes:
Gianmaria Bruni (911 RSR #912): “What a tough fight. We lost time with the pit stop incident, when our 911 RSR caught fire briefly. However, thanks to a perfect pit stop strategy, we were able to make up those lost laps. The many spirited duels were huge fun.”
Laurens Vanthoor (911 RSR #912): “We didn’t have the pace today to seriously fight for victory. We tried everything, we had a great strategy, but it wasn’t enough. I’m pleased that our teammates have won the North American Endurance Cup. That’s a terrific achievement. Now we’re looking ahead to 2018 and we’re all determined to come back even stronger.”
