KohR Motorsports Mustang GT4 Wins at VIR!
Did you see that finish? It was another last-lap frenzy of excitement that decided the finish of the Virginia is for Racing Lovers Grand Prix, at VIRginia International Raceway! Crazy weather conditions and a bunch of full-course cautions had made for an exciting day. And with just 2 minutes remaining in the race, the entire field took the green flag one last time to start a sprint to the finish line.
The #60 KohR Motorsports GS-class Ford Mustang GT4 restarted in third place with Kyle Marcelli behind the wheel. But just in front of him, the #7 Porsche Cayman GT4 was battling with the #69 McLaren GT4 for the lead, when contact between them caused the McLaren to spin. This allowed the Cayman to cross the line first with the KohR Motorsports Mustang claiming the second spot. But then a post-race penalty assigned to the Cayman meant that Marcelli, Nate Stacy, and the KohR Motorsports Mustang were awarded the win!
KohR’s win at VIR was their first of the 2019 season. And in the process, they also earned the Forgeline Spirit of the Race Award, as fans who enjoyed race day coverage via the IMSA.tv live stream and the IMSA Radio live broadcast submitted their votes via Twitter and selected Stacy and Marcelli, drivers of the #60 KohR Motorsports Ford Mustang GT4, as the drivers who best exemplified the true spirit of MICHELIN Pilot Challenge racing.
Congrats to Nate, Kyle, Ford, and everyone from KohR Motorsports on an outstanding performance! And thanks for trusting Forgeline to carry the load!
