Altamonte Springs, FL/August 8, 2013-
The upcoming Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Road America this weekend will be a special treat for P1 Groupe, as two excellent drivers in the P1 Groupe stable will be sharing driving duties at the classic 4-mile road course in the #62 HeritageVT.com/OutOfTheLife.org BMW 128i of Mitchum Motorsports. Cameron Lawrence and Dillon Machavern will be looking to tear around the track in the small German sports car to bring home a top finish. Both drivers are certainly chomping at the bit to get started.
“I’m very excited to get a taste of Grand-Am, and the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series.” Say Cameron. “Teaming up with Mitchum Motorsports and fellow P1 Groupe driver Dillon Machavern is a great opportunity to be competitive in my Grand-Am debut. I’m hoping that my recent success and win at Road America in the Trans Am Series will carry into this weekend. I think a Top-10 finish with a clean car will be success for us.”
Dillon seems just as eager to hit the track with his new teammate. “I’m excited to be running my first Grand Am race of the season with fellow P1 driver Cameron Lawrence and eager to drive at Road America. I’ve always wanted to drive this track, and am really excited to be able to have my first crack at what has been a challenging and well-loved track for so many drivers over the years!”
Both drivers are no strangers to success, as Cameron is currently leading the Trans Am TA2 driver championship points with 3 wins and 5 podiums through the first 5 rounds of the series season, while Dillon is leading the National points standings in the SCCA GT-1 US Majors, Nationals and V-8 Stock Car Series.
The action will be hot and heavy this weekend as Lawrence and Machavern will be testing their skills against some of the best drivers in the world around one of North America’s most famous circuits. The Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Road America takes place on Saturday, August 10th at 1:30pm EST and will be broadcast on FOX Sports 2 on August 17th at 3pm EST.
