2017 Pirelli World Challenge Rounds 8 & 9: Lime Rock

Coming just one week after the races and rainout at CTMP, Pirelli World Challenge rolls right into Lime Rock Park in Connecticut. After the confusion and contention which marked both previous Sprint-X weekends at VIR and Mosport it will be interesting what the legendary 1.5 mile bullring adds to the mix. Sounds like weather could be an issue again as well.
The fact that the race coincides with the 24 Hours of Nurburgring will result in several revised driver lineups, including:
-Joining Patrick Long in the #58 Wright Motorsports Porsche will be reigning World Endurance Champion, Marc Lieb, subbing for Jorg Bergmeister.
-Matt Halliday subs for Laurens Vanthoor in the #14 GMG Porsche, co-driving with series veteran James Sofronas.
-Alex Imperatori's Nurburgring commitments will require a substitute at Absolute Racing, with Yufeng Luo's co-driver yet to be announced.

After their qualifying crash at Mosport, R. Ferri Motorsport is in a race against time to repair their 488 GT3 in time for Alex Riberas and Kyle Marcelli to compete at Lime Rock.

Probably exceeds the maximum allowed starters at Lime Rock.

Heck of a duel in qualifying in the rain, Pumpelly & Magnus went to the top in the closing minutes, then on the last lap, first Morad & CRP jumped to P1, then Pat Long promptly took the Wright Porsche past both to take pole!

Really fantastic racing today. Proof that there really can be a good Sprint-X event!
Fascinating GTS race amidst changing conditions also. Flying Lizard Porsche vs. Panoz...it doesn't get much better than that!
Plus the always entertaining TC race was loads of fun.



Looking forward (with some trepidation) to tomorrow!

Agreed, all three races were excellent.
Sprint-X finally had a race that was worthy of the teams and drivers competing in it. Great win by Long and Lieb, well deserved. Impressive stint by Pumpelly too, while he was driving it looked like the Audi might have a shot at the Porsche.
Also a brilliant drive by Parente, he made quick work of passing both Dyer and J Taylor, and made the most of Dalziel's traffic woes.



GTS was fantastic, great racecraft from Baptista. Both Lizard cars looked really good in the changing conditions. Awesome to see Flying Lizard and Panoz duking it out for the top step of the podium.

TC battle between Goulart and Holton was fun to watch, super close respectful racing.
