Lux grabs LMPC points lead

September 18, 2011


Eric Lux and Elton Julian not only overcame previous championship leaders CORE autosport to take the LMPC points lead going into Petit Le Mans – they did it with one man on the sidelines.

Third driver Michael Guasch actually injured his ankle at the track and could not drive – his teammates telling the post-race press conference it was either severely sprained or possibly broken.

This left Julian with a monster stint – just shy of four hours to take the flag. A late pit stop from Gunnar Jeannette in the CORE car gave the Genoa Racing car the advantage and a late race yellow eliminated Genoa’s need to make a late pit stop.

Despite a late race charge from Jeannette, Julian held on by 0.329 of a second and delivered Lux a three-point lead in the driver’s championship with only one race remaining.

Third place went to Canadian hot-shoe Kyle Marcelli who teamed with the Chapman and David Ducote in the Intersport Racing entry.
