US RaceTronics Eager to Repeat VIR Success at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca
Salinas, California (Thursday, September 12, 2019) – US RaceTronics arrived yesterday at famed WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca with high expectations for a successful weekend at their ‘home’ track. The Southern California based team will have a large contingent of sponsors, family and friends onsite to cheer them on in the final U.S. leg of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North American championship and is eager to repeat their successes at Virginia International Raceway.
The ProAm duo of Damon Ockey and Jacob Eidson captured an overall podium spot at VIR in addition to winning both of their class races in the No. 09 Lamborghini of Vancouver. The pair are looking to carry that momentum into this weekend’s event with hopes of another one or two overall podium finishes. They are also looking to sweep the weekend and earn their eight and ninth wins of the season and capture the North American ProAm championship title.
Steven Aghakhani also had a win in the final race at VIR and is expecting to carry that momentum into a track that he’s had success at in the past. Aghakhani won his class at last year’s Blancpain endurance race and is confident that his knowledge of the track as well as the momentum he’s bringing in will carry him to the top of the AM podium once again. He also has his sights set on an overall podium and feels this track is the perfect place to achieve that goal in his No. 6 Lamborghini of Beverly Hills.
Ron Atapattu and Patrick Liddy are also coming off a great weekend in the No. 24 Elephantea Lamborghini of La Jolla. The pair took two second-place finishes in the ProAm class at VIR, giving them second-place finishes in every race they’ve participated in since pairing up for Race 2 at Road America. The pair is looking for their fourth and fifth straight podiums this weekend.
The team is participating in today’s promoter test in addition to the full IMSA weekend schedule which kicks off tomorrow, Friday, September 13th at 8:40 a.m. PDT with practice session 1 and practice session 2 at 12:30 p.m. PDT.
