Coming back from an exciting two days of testing in Austin, JCR Motorsports heads into the Circuit of The Americas weekend optimistically, looking to establish two solid finishes at the world renowned circuit. Courtney will race the Kenda/RecStuff Audi R8 LMS in two 50-minute double-header sprint races, May 18th and 19th, alongside a total of 19 GT class cars entered into the event.
“I was really happy with the testing we had earlier this month,” stated Courtney. “We were able to get a lot of laps in the car and finally work on setup changes along with getting some needed seat time. The course is a lot of fun and super busy, which I like. The facility is awesome and the team is very excited about the two races coming up this weekend.”
Adding to the anticipation of strong finishes for the weekend, Courtney will be joined by family and friends, “It’s exciting to have relatives and close friends here with us,” said Courtney. “We want to put on a strong show for everyone and hopefully they bring us some good luck.”
The Pirelli World Challenge races at Circuit of The Americas will be using the two-mile “short course” configuration which routes drivers through the middle of the “S” corners to the back straight.
