Change Racing Heads to Canada for Round 7 of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship
Following an early end to a promising run at Watkins Glen on Sunday, Change Racing will head north to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park for the next round of IMSA WeatherTech competition.
Broadcast Schedule: Catch the two hour and 40-minute event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park LIVE on Sunday, July 9th at 12:00 PM ET on FS1.
Glen Rearview: Change Racing returned to Watkins Glen International with a full stable of cars with the team’s two Lamborghini Super Trofeo entries as well as the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GTD car.
Super Trofeo drivers, Richard Antinucci and D. Bryce Miller had a stand out weekend in Round 2 of Lamborghini Super Trofeo competition. Antinucci scored his third victory of the season along with a fifth-place result. Miller earned his first podium of the year in Race 2.
The Change Racing No. 16 XBOX / Monster Energy / Orion Lighting Lamborghini Huracán GT3 IMSA WeatherTech team did not see the same fortune after the car took a hard hit in the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen and was forced to retire early.
CTMP Drivers: Corey Lewis & Jeroen Mul
The Track: As Change Racing heads directly to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park following the Watkins Glen event, both drivers of the No. 16 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 look forward to the 10-turn, high-speed 2.459-mile track that has played host for racing going back to 1961.
Lewis’ Return to CTMP: Corey Lewis is looking forward to making his return to CTMP as he makes his second IMSA WeatherTech start at the track. Last year, Lewis finished fifth in the Canadian event while driving the No. 16 Lamborghini for Change Racing.
Mul Makes it a First: Jeroen Mul is ready to hit the reset button as he leaves the Six Hours of the Glen behind and looks forward to CTMP. Mul continues to expand his knowledge of American racing tracks, as CTMP will be another new circuit to learn. With little time between the two events, Mul has been studying the twists and turns of the track on his XBOX Forza and through simulator training.
“This is yet again a completely new track for me,” said Mul. “My preparation starts with talking to the team about their experiences last year, and going over the data and on-board camera footage. I take that to the simulator and make sure the pace and the gear ratios sync up. I then put all that together and analyze it just like I would if I were at a test day. It’s incredible that the technology is that far along but it has paid off all season in helping me prepare for new tracks.”
Corey Lewis: “We were very quick there last year. It’s one of the fastest tracks that we go to. There are a lot of high speed corners, blind corners, and elevation changes. Hopefully we can continue our pace that we have been showing this year. I am always happy to go back to CTMP and hopefully we can use our momentum from the previous weekend and bring it to CTMP.”
Jeroen Mul: “CTMP looks like a lot of fun. It looks similar to Watkins Glen, with the elevation changes and high-speed, flowing corners, but a bit narrower. It also reminds me a bit of Brands Hatch in England. But it’s another interesting, cool, quick track. It will be a sprint race, so we have to focus even more on qualifying. We have to keep doing what we’re doing and our day will come.”
After earning Team and Driver Championships in 2013, 2014, and 2015, the team grew in 2016 to also campaign in the IMSA WeatherTech Championship with the Lamborghini Huracàn GT3 in GT Daytona (“GTD”) Class competition. The team enters 2017 with a promising young driver line up with Corey Lewis and Jerome Mul sharing the driving duties on the No. 16 Monster Energy / XBOX / Forza / Windows 10/ Pertamina Lamborghini Huracàn GT3. Change Racing will also make its 5th consecutive Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo campaign as the team looks to extend its record of achievement in the category.
