Anassis and Wei Sweep Weekend at Road America
The sixth round of the North American Ferrari Challenge came to a close today at the famed Road America circuit in Wisconsin. Following yesterday’s first place victory overall and for the Trofeo Pirelli class, Emmanuel Anassis of Ferrari of Quebec again finished on top of the podium steps. As the fastest qualifier today, Anassis marked the best lap time at 2:11:162 with a top speed of 109.771 mph. The rain delay in the middle of Race 2 forced Doug Peterson (Miller motorcars) to retire, leading to a tight contention for second place between Mexican Ricardo Perez (Ferrari of Houston) and Canadian Damon Ockey (Ferrari of Ontario). Ultimately, Perez would finish just ahead of Ockey with a 0.66 second gap.
The Coppa Shell class saw the same finishers as yesterday, with rookie from Ferrari of Vancouver, Wei Lu, finishing in first place and fourth position overall. Chris Ruud (Ferrari of Beverly Hills) claimed his second place win with Carlos Conde (Miller Motorcars) finishing in third place.
The next round of the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli takes place from September 19-21 at Watkins Glen International in New York.
