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
