Great day at the track! Winding down the days events, unless somebody finds some speed, the Volvo's are going to run away and hide this weekend in GT. Figge and Pobst passed the pole back and forth on each hot lap, shattering the previous record, until Figge broke into the 1:13's, that's 1-1/2 seconds faster than the track record for GT.

Front row for GT round 1 on Saturday is the two Volvo's of Figge and Pobst, followed by Daziel in the 911 GT3 and Sofronas driving the R8 rounding out row 2. The two Cadillacs will start in row three.

In GTS, Andy Lee puts his Camaro on the pole with the Porsche Cayman of Jack Baldwin outside row 1. Gleason and Aschenbach will start row two in a Porsche and Camaro respectively. Should be a great race Saturday.

So the PWC GT sounds a lot like FSCS GT with all the record-breaking going on.

Saturday Results:

GT
1 - Figge (Volvo)
2 - Sofronas (Audi)
3 - O'Connell (Cadillac)

Figge led most of the race, opening up a 6 second lead at on point. The race was for second with Dalziel, Pobst, O'Connell, Sofronas, Pilgram and Skeen. Once Dalziel got around Pobst and Sofronas passed O'Connell, the two ran after Figge with around 15 laps to go. A caution came out on lap 26, bunching the field. When the race restarted, Figge had his hands full with Dalziel and Sofronos. O'Connell and Pilgram both passed Pobst to move Cadillac into fourth and fifth. On lap 28 Figge pushed wide (right in front of us) and Dalziel made a great move to get by. The checkers came out with Dalziel first in the Porsche, with the Volvo of Figge and the R8 of Sofronas, second and third. Cadillac finished fourth and fifth.

However, after post race inspection, Dalziel's Porsche was found to have an illegal splitter, awarding Figge the win and bumping everybody up one spot.



GTS
1 - Baldwin (Porsche)
2 - Lee (Camaro)
3 - Cunningham (Acura)

The pole sitter Lee, ran the rubber off of his Camaro, but could not shake the veteren Baldwin's Porsche. When the caution flag came out on lap 26, Lee had the lead, followed by Baldwin, Aschenbach, Gleason and Cunningham. With two laps to go, and on cold tires, Baldwin pulled beside Lee into turn 1 and the two went door handle to door handle through the tight turn two right hander. Baldwin pulled passed in turn three and went on to victory. Finishing in the top five was, Lee, Cunningham, Aschenbach and Wilkins. Gleason finished fourth, but was penalized 20 points for avoidable contact with Aschenbach on the last lap and was dropped to eighth.




Sunday's race will be a standing start, (weather permitting), and Sofronas will have the pole in GT with the fastest lap time of Saturday's race, alongside him will be Figge. Dalziel and his rules appropriate splitter will start row two with Pobst. In GTS, Baldwin and Lee will be upfront, with Cunningham and Aschenbach in row two.

It's and early start, 10:25 am EST, but you can catch all the action at:

Glad to help Sainted, Sunday's race will be very exciting, the fellas don't have to worry about keeping the car in one piece for a race tomorrow. So the glove will be off!

Sunday's Results:

GT
1 - Sofronas (Audi)
2 - Pobst (Volvo)
3 - O'Connell (Cadillac)

Again Figge was hooked up and so was the Porsche of Dalziel, with his approved splitter, but disaster struck them both. Dalziel cut a tire on lap 29 and Figge cut a tire on lap 31, moving Sofronas from 3rd to first with just a couple laps remaining. Pobst gave chase but could not make the move to pass the Audi and Sofronas takes round two.


GTS
1 - Baldwin (Porsche)
2 - Aschenbach (Camaro)
3 - Cunningham (Acura)

Baldwin's Porsche was fast all weekend and after a battle with Lee at the start of the race, and subsequent engine failure in the Camaro, Baldwin boat raced his way to his second victory of the season.

NBC Sports will air this weekends races on Sunday, April 7th at 12:30PM EST
So look for me in turn 10 on Saturday and turn 1 infield on Sunday


Great weekend of racing, next race is at Long Beach on 04/19
