LAGUNA SECA SPRINT CUP FINALE PROVES CHALLENGING

Season-low finish caps off second season of GTD with McLaren 720S GT3

Monterey, CA – Compass Racing rolled into WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca – the team's home track for this season now that they are fully California-based – with high hopes for a good finish to the end of the second season with their McLaren 720S GT3 in IMSA’s GTD competition.

DESTRUCTION AT SRO ROAD AMERICA

Ray Mason started the first race of the SRO Road America event from the back of the GT4 Sprint field (after we moved him from SprintX so that he could drive solo) and in wet conditions moved up 11 positions to third in class and fifth overall, with just a few minutes left in the race. An incredible job that was marred by an overly-optimistic (as in, "what was he thinking?") move heading in to Canada Corner that resulted in both cars being written off.
