It is a race against the clock for team Alegra/Porsche Centre Oakville Motorsport even if cars are still in the paddock.
The team is working against a deadline: two cars crashed during yesterday’s race and need to be ready for today’s Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Michelin race held at 4:15 pm on the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park main racetrack.
Carlos De Quesada’s Porsche 911 Cup car sustained damage when Shaun McKaigue lost control; it was Tim Sanderson’s turn later in the same race to be sidelined in an incident with Harry Steenbakkers of Mark Mortors.
Both cars sustained damage to the front, mostly the front left side, needing the whole front left suspension replaced, as well as fenders and bumpers.
The team worked overtime late into the evening and as we post this, they are performaing an alignment before putting finishing touches to Tim’s car while suspension pieces are being installed on Carlos’ car.
Yes, these competitive 911s will be ready for the very last race of this season, a race promising a lot of excitement for the team.
Daniel Morad is fighting for the championship title; he is currently in second position, seven points behind Green. But Green is starting this last race of the season in fourth place while Morad starts second.
In the Cup Gold class, Michael De Quesada is in the same situation, being second with six points separating him from Fidani.
Just as interesting is the race for the team championship. Alegra/Porsche Centre Oakville Motorsport is leading with 156 points, two small points ahead of Pfaff Motorsports.
