Ford GT's Ryan Briscoe of Connecticut & Teammate Richard Westbrook Claim Northeast Grand Prix Win At Lime Rock Park
The win by the No. 67 was their first victory of the season and an upset for Porsche’s five-race consecutive win streak in the GTLM class. The Porsche team was able to hold on and finish second overall in the race. The No. 66 Ford GT of Joey Hand and Dirk Mueller finished in the third position.
The Northeast Grand Prix is Lime Rock Park's second major event of the season and the largest in terms of single-day spectator turnout. Despite the unusually high temperatures, the weekend turned out to be a success, according to Skip Barber, Lime Rock President, who noted that fans took full advantage of the park setting to enjoy the shaded viewing areas.
Featuring the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the Michelin Pilot Challenge, the IMSA Northeast Grand Prix brought race fans two days of on track activity and racing. Lime Rock's next major spectator race will be the Historic Festival over Labor Day Weekend. For more information, tickets and upgrade experiences, visit www.limerock.com
