IMSA: Mazda continues Winning Up North, Eh!

As the Sports Car team with the smallest motor keeps chuggin' into Victory lane...

Who said Thar wasn't any significant Motor Racing this past weekend, RASSCAR' excluded. As the IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship made it's one 'N only yearly trek across thou Border to Thee Great White North, nee Oh KanaDuh's Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, (CTMP) which will forever be known as Trois-Rivières to Mwah. Whilst once again, I delighted in listening to Der Heindenmeier', nee John Hindhaugh, Jeremy Shaw and Pitlane Reporter Shea Adam call the race via Zed Internetz'...

Which for the second week in-a-row, the Mazda RT24P's Took No Prisoners en route to another mighty 1-2 finish, albeit this time it was the No. 77 leading the #55 past the Chequered Flag, with Shea Adam congratulating Tristan Nunez on standing atop the Podium for the first time in 2,136 Days; Aye Karumba!

Yet the race was Overshadowed by the Uber Scary Accident suffered by Victor Franzoni behind the wheel of the No. 50 Juncos Racing Cadillac VR DPi, losing control during a late race restart, rolling the Caddy' onto its side in a massive Shunt Driver's Side Cockpit into the Tyre Barrier! For which Thankfully Franzoni escaped uninjured.

Whilst Mazda Motorsports Director John Doonan rightly Deserves every bit of Admiration & Accolades he's been receiving the past two weeks over Mazda's triumphs after persevering for how many years in Sports Cars? As Doonan's a true Class Act, which he typified in his latest victory speech at CTMP by immediately acknowledging Victor Franzoni was in their thoughts, since the ex-Indy Lights Brazilian Driver was part of the extended Mazda Family.

Before giving a Shout-out to Shabral Pruett, Racer's Marshall Pruett's "Better Half" who's fighting her own Battle...
