Three seemed to be the magic number for our weekend at Road America after qualifying 3rd, finishing 3rd and taking our 3rd podium placing from six races this year in the ALMS. Luckily there was one important number one amongst all those threes!
For my team mate Tommy Milner and me, our finishing place gave us enough points to bump us back up into the lead of the GT Drivers’ points’ classification ahead of Dirk Muller and our team mates, Jan and Antonio, who were also on the podium.
After having had a nice sunny, breezy week the rain which started coming down a couple of hours before the start of the race was a bit of a surprise and not a welcome one. It was still raining a bit as Tommy set out in our No.4 Corvette C6.R and there was a lot of spray and jostling for position as the 33-strong field set off.
