Three AMRs again of the fourth round of the Michelin Pilot Challenge from Mid-Ohio

Wednesday, May 11, 2022


The IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Series reaches its fourth round of the season at the Mid-Ohio Sport Car Course this weekend after a commanding display and opportunist work by some at the last round at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca just two weeks ago.

Featuring another thirty-nine-car combined grid of GT4 and TCR based race cars, three Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4’s will again compete amongst their grid of twenty-four cars at Saturday’s two-hour race.

Last time out at Laguna Seca, the #7 Volt Racing AMR of Alan Brynjolfsson and Trent Hindman lucked in with the periods of caution to come out in front by the end of the pit stop cycle to come home triumphant overall winners for the first time this season to now lead the GS class.

The #12 Corsa Horizon AMR of Manny Franco and Josh Hurley also had their best Qualifying of the season to date last time out to start from the third row of the grid, although did miss out on the fortunes that Volt Racing enjoyed by pitting early for fuel. That move followed the action of others meaning that the best that they could do by the end was a P12 finish.

The #09 Stoner Car Care AMR rounds off the trio as drivers Rob Ecklin and Ramin Abdolvahabi continue within their Bronze Cup GS sub-class that runs for the first time this season. They too got caught up again in the mistakes of others that compromised their race at Laguna Seca as early as the first corner when their Vantage GT4 got turned around by a competitor.

Still no sign of a return for the Automatic Racing prepared AMR of Paul Kiebler after his initial two opening rounds at both Daytona and Sebring, before declaring a full season intention to then not race at either Laguna Seca or Mid-Ohio.

Whatever happens, we know that this will be another great race.
