If you’ve been following the Continental Challenge series in Grand Am, you already know all about the success the RSR MINI’s have been having. Hugely competitive in the ST class, Sarah Cattaneo has been impressive bringing her #197 R53 to pole at Homestead in Miami, while her teammates, BJ Zacharias and Craig Conway, in the #198 car finished on the podium in 3rd. The MINI’s pace is no fluke, Cattaneo again qualified 6th in Birmingham at the Barber 200, and the #196 car driven by Smalley, Trinkler, & Zacharias taking pole at the Bosch 200 in Virginia. With good results in qualifying and RSR’s first ever podium this year, the team is peforming well demonstrating the outright pace of the MINI.
We’d like to encourage our readers to head out to Lime Rock to support the MINI’s over the Memorial day weekend, May 28,29. Grand-Am and Lime Rock are putting together a Car Corral for MINI owners with some great swag to giveaway: Piloti shoes, flags, pit passes, and more. Tickets are a reasonable $30 and available at www.limerock.com. The classes will be split for the first time this season which should make for a true test of the teams and yield some excellent racing.
