Kennesaw, GA – April 27, 2014 – GTSPORT RACING ended the Pirelli World Challenge at Barber Motorsports Park weekend on a high note. Jack Baldwin, of Marietta, GA, lead from start to finish during Round 4 of the GTS class race in his #73 RESET-MD/Motul/StopTech Porsche Cayman S to clinch the win and score his second podium of the weekend.
Baldwin started from the pole after setting the fastest lap in Saturday’s Round 3 race in which he finished third. He held the lead from flag to flag for an amazing 29 consecutive laps during the 52-minute race. Baldwin also set the fastest lap time of Round 4 with his 1:31.937 best and an average speed of 90.061 MPH. Driving what could be described as the perfect race, Baldwin was ahead of the second place car by an astounding 4.782 seconds when he crossed the finish line.
“Yesterday we had a rough race and there was more work to do last night. We changed the setup, and today’s car was a completely different car. I’m so proud to be able to do this for the team. It’s just fantastic. I want to say thanks to all the fans and everyone who rooted for us, and never gave up on us. I’ve been racing for a long time, but this one I’ll definitely remember.” He continued on to say that “this is for the crew and all their hard work to get us to this point. It was truly a team endeavor, and if it weren’t for these guys, I wouldn’t have been able to race this weekend, let alone win. The entire GTSport racing team, Bob Sanderson and the Goldcrest Motorsports crew, along with Mike McConville and Magnum Collision, did an outstanding job – everyone pitched in and made this a real winning effort. We left St. Pete third in points, then left Long Beach in thirteenth. Now, thanks to the hard work of our crew, suppliers, supporters, and partners, we’re third again and back in the game!”
Buz McCall, of Boca Raton, FL, driver of the GTSport #72 RESET-MD/Motul/StopTech Porsche Cayman S had finished seventeenth in Round 3 the day before, and qualified in the twenty-second position. For Round 4, McCall utilized the knowledge gained during the previous race to deftly overcome car after car before he crossed the finish in fourteenth.
Despite the setbacks encountered over the past two weeks, the GTSport Racing team refused to give in; they rose to the occasion and transformed several unfortunate circumstances into the race weekend of a lifetime. Earning two pole position qualifiers, a third-place podium and ultimately a first-place victory, the team’s hard work and dedication has been justly rewarded.
