TORONTO, ON: (Jily 11, 2019)- After a strong showing in the season opener at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (CTMP) with a new lap record set in qualifying that culminated in a third place finish, the team is looking to improve the result and take the top step on the podium. The strong finish has landed the #59 a new partnership with MIRKA for the remainder of their scheduled season. The team will be proudly displaying the returning partner, Trailcon Leasing on the hood for the Pinty’s Grand Prix.
When asked about the new partnership with MIRKA, Klutt answered, “ We feel that it’s a great fit for our team, as the fans know, rubbing is racing and there is always body work to repair after the race, so to have a partner in the surface finishing business is a no brainer. I look forward to building a relationship with the team at MIRKA”.
As for the race, “It always feels good to race in front of a big crowd, and I know that I’ll chuckle during practice the first time I come down Lakeshore doing 250km/h…Last year we had great pace at Toronto, running third all race and settling for fourth after a late race restart”.
“John Fletcher (the team’s crew chief) gave me a stellar car at the first race and I don’t anticipate that changing” smiled Gary.
The green flag will fly for The Pinty’s Grand Prix of Toronto Saturday July 13th
