It wasn’t the ending we all had hoped but MINI Team JCW rounded out their best season to date with a 4th place finish for drivers Derek Jones and Mat Pombo. The finish shuffled the team back a bit giving them a 4th place finish for the season. MINI as a manufacturer finished 5th with Derek Jones and Mat Pombo tying for 4th in the driver standings.
While the finish wasn’t all it could have been, it was an incredible year for the team. Starting off with an improbable win at Daytona (listen to our interview with the team here) the year also featured a few other key wins. At Road America where we caught up with the team, the mood was positive and determined that they could finish strong. That attitude never lost the team as they continued to fight through some bad luck and some strong runs by key competitors.
You can catch all the action from Road Atlanta this Sunday, October 15, 2017 – 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM EDT at FS1. Alternatively you can watch via the iMSA app any time after that date.
Please join us from MotoringFile in congratulating the team for their best year yet. Well done guys!
