Road America - An Outstanding Weekend for the Racing.ca / LaptopScreen.com team!
The Road America weekend began well right from the start for the Racing.ca / LaptopScreen.com team at the 2015 Pirelli World Challenge. Team drivers #58 Glenn Nixon, #57 Andrei Kisel and #59 Nic Duynstee each qualified ahead of the competition getting 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively. All three cars were proudly at the head of the TCB pack in the first standing start of the round 7 of PWC at the awesome Road America Race Course in Lake Elkhart, WI. As the race progressed the three teammates were leading the TCB field until a restart mid-race allowed the competition to close the gap. Nic Duynstee piloting a #59 Racing.ca / LaptopScreen.com / NixonPro Sports Mini Cooper was forced to break to avoid contact just as the green flag dropped, which allowed both Chevy Sonics of Johan Swartz and Van Swenson to pass him simultaneously from both sides. After getting passed Nic’s race became a tug of war with the top drivers in the championship. Meanwhile #58 Glenn Nixon in his Racing.ca / LaptopScreen.com / NixonPro Sports Honda Fit and Andrei Kisel in his #57 Racing.ca / LaptopScreen.com Mini Cooper worked together and were able to break away from the competition, the pair has made great use of each other’s cars - drafting away and making a clean finish in 1st and 2nd positions, with Glenn taking the top honours. Nic arrived in a very respectable 5th in his first Pirelli World Challenge race of the year.
The story repeated itself for the 2nd and the 3rd races of the weekend with both #58 Glenn Nixon and #57 Andrei Kisel managing to stay ahead of the competition and developing a great gap to the rest of the TCB field. Nic Duynstee again arrived in very respectable 6th in the second race and 5th in the final 3rd race despite some hard luck. Everyone on the Racing.ca / LaptopScreen.com team was blown away by the awesome performance of the drivers and the last podium of the weekend was filled with celebration, joy and a great sense of accomplishment!
