World Challenge GT: Kuno Wittmer wins in Toronto!

From press release

One week after climbing onto the podium in the Tudor United SportsCar Series, the North American Endurance championship, Montreal driver Kuno Wittmer was back in competition again this weekend on the urban track in Toronto.

Invited to drive a brand new Dodge Viper GT3-R in the American World Challenge GT Series, Kuno Wittmer’s only goal was to claim another spot on the podium. He successfully achieved that objective by finishing second on Saturday and then winning a spectacular race on Sunday.

In a series that he has won on six different occasions between 2008 and 2010 before moving to the elite of Endurance racing, Kuno Wittmer was anxious to take to the temporary urban track in Toronto that he knows so well.

This year, the World Challenge Series is more highly contested that ever with around fifty drivers entered in the GT and GTS classes. A large number of manufacturers are also involved. Third after the first practice session, Kuno Wittmer then qualified his No.92 Viper GT3-R in the first starting line for the first of two races in the programme.

During Saturday’s round, two collisions in the pack were followed by caution periods, considerably reducing the number of regular race laps, thereby forcing Kuno to be satisfied with second place as he crossed the finish line hot on the tail of the winner.
