13 Jul Lazare Takes first career GT Win at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park
Door Doctor/Moorespeed’s Jesse Lazare takes his first career GT win at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in Bomanville Ontario Saturday, July 12th in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama.
It was a four-man race for the most part of the race that tightened up the last few laps as the top four runners led by Jesse Lazare ran began working their way lapping the back of the field. Jesse was taken out of the Friday race by Angel Benitez Jr. sitting in second place who along with Colin Thompson and winner of race one, Sloan Urry looked for an opportunity that the young Lazare never afforded them.
Team Manager Price Cobb came on the radio, “Jess you have 10 laps to go, drive them like qualifying laps and the win is yours”. And that’s exactly what young Canadian Jesse Lazare did, taking his first win In the Porsche GT3 Challenge.
This could be the defining moment in the young Canadian’s first season with Moorespeed as he now enters the second half of the season with strong momentum and confidence that winning breeds. The remaining races are at Road America, Circuit of Americas (only 5 miles from Moorespeed’s workshop), and the final race in conjunction with Petit Lemans at Road Atlanta.
