Jules Gounon and Daniel Juncadella drove the #79 Mercedes-AMG GT3 to the checkered flag finishing first in class, scoring the team’s third victory of the season.
“I think the WeatherTech car was amazing today,” Gounon said. “Our engineer won here with Dani last year, so we know what the car wants for this circuit, so that was an advantage for us this weekend. I was on pole here last year, so that experience helped as well.” says Gounon.
“The Indy circuit suits our car. The layout is good and when that happens you need to capitalize on that and take wins. Jules had a good first stint and led the race after a good P2 qualifying run. It is a good win for the WeatherTech Racing/Proton team and good momentum going into Petit Le Mans next month.” Shares Juncadella.
The WeatherTech Racing team currently sits on top of the standings for the Michelin Endurance Cup. They will now travel to Road Atlanta for the last race of the season as they try to secure the Endurance Championship.
