VISTA, CA — Compass Racing's GT4 program returns to the famed Elhkart Lake in August with back-to-back weekends in two different series. Long-time team driver Ray Mason returns to the team for his eighth season, at the helm of one of the squad’s McLaren 570S GT4s.
Although Compass Racing’s No. 76 McLaren 720S GT3 finished well down the points – in 11th – at the season-opening WeatherTech Sprint Cup round at Daytona International Speedway, our car showed strong pace, with Corey Fergus taking pole position, and both he and co-driver Paul Holton setting second-fastest laps during their stints. Our rolling 20-lap averages were also towards the front of the field, and this resulted in IMSA decreeing a rather substantial decrease in performance to our Richard Mille-sponsored entry for the second round, at Sebring.Continue Reading

VISTA, CA — Ebullition Brew Works has joined Compass Racing as strategic partner in the Team’s quest for the 2020 IMSA WeatherTech Sprint Cup, beginning with the season-opening round this weekend at Daytona International Speedway July 3rd-4th.

SimCity, Virtual — IMSA's iRacing series utlizes GTLM (or GTE) machinery, and so there isn't a McLaren option for our drivers Paul Holton and Corey Fergus to helm in the virtual races.
