2022 FCP Euro Northeast Grand Prix Winners

  • GTD PRO: Matt Campbell/Mathieu Jaminet, No. 9 Pfaff Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R
  • GTD: Bryan Sellers/Madison Snow, No. 1 Paul Miller Racing BMW M4 GT3



  • GT Classes in Spotlight: This is the first of two IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship races with the popular GT classes as the headline act. The other event comes next month at VIRginia International Raceway. The GT cars typically put on an exciting and aggressive display at Lime Rock, the shortest track on the schedule known as the “Bullring.”
  • Crunch Time for GT Championships: Five races remain for the GTD PRO and GTD classes this season. The No. 14 Vasser Sullivan Lexus RC F GT3 with co-drivers Jack Hawksworth and Ben Barnicoat saw their GTD PRO points lead shrink to 96 over Jules Gounon, Daniel Juncadella and the No. 79 WeatherTech Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3 following the July 9 race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. A win in Canada closed Jordan Taylor, Antonio Garcia and the No. 3 Corvette Racing Chevrolet Corvette C8.R GTD to within 109 points of the lead. In GTD, Madison Snow and Bryan Sellers notched their third win of the season in the No. 1 Paul Miller Racing BMW M4 GT3 at CTMP, pushing their points lead to 212 over Marco Sorensen, Roman De Angelis and the No. 27 Heart of Racing Team Aston Martin Vantage GT3.
  • Sprint Cup Battle Continues: The championship within the championship, the IMSA WeatherTech Sprint Cup continues for the GTD class at Lime Rock. The race at Lime Rock is the fourth of the seven races running two hours, 40 minutes or shorter that make up the Sprint Cup. Snow, Sellers and the No. 1 BMW, the reigning Sprint Cup champions, lead Sorensen, De Angelis and the No. 27 Aston Martin by 66 points for this crown.
  • TCR Takes Center Stage in Michelin Pilot Challenge: For the first time, the Touring Car (TCR) class will race by itself in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge race, the Lime Rock Park 100 that concludes the weekend of racing on July 22. Typically, the TCR class shares the track with the Grand Sport (GS) cars, but the GS had its own solo race last month in Detroit.


Who’s Hot?

  • No. 1 Paul Miller Racing BMW: Bryan Sellers and Madison Snow have accumulated three wins and a second-place finish in the past five races to dominate the GTD class. What’s more, they are the defending winners at Lime Rock Park in what the team considers a “home race” since the Paul Miller Auto Group is based in relatively nearby New Jersey.
  • No. 14 Vasser Sullivan Lexus: Even though they had a string of nine straight podium finishes snapped at CTMP on July 9 Ben Barnicoat, Jack Hawksworth and the No. 14 Vasser Sullivan Lexus RC F GT3 still sit atop the GTD PRO standings. That podium streak began last year at Lime Rock so the No. 14 looks to start a new one this year.


Who’s Good Here?

  • Porsche: As is the case at many tracks, Porsche has the most class wins (21) of any manufacturer entered this year. The famous German marque will have entries in both WeatherTech Championship classes again this year and is the defending champion in GTD PRO.
