The risky maneuvers that should run the Venezuelan driver Nelson Canache jr in the first part of the Orion Energy Sistems 245, made his American partner leave the pits Spencer Pumpelly Flying Lizard team in the circuit of Road America, Wisconsin.
“I know she was very nervous watching my performance through an internal chamber in the car, but once I finished the race congratulated me,” said Canache, recent winner-with-Pumpelly this sixth round of the American Le Mans Series (ALMS).
“The weekend was complicated because the first tests went well behind a car almost unmanageable, but everything changed with a view to the ratings”.
He explained that engineers Canache Flying Lizard team made a dramatic change in the car, but without knowing how it would be.
“We were all expecting and when Spencer (Pumpelly took pole, no one could believe. Was great.”
However, on Sunday it all started again, as the rain moved in and Canache, as pilot in turn, had to contrive.
“I like driving on a wet track and once you start I kept turned on, though pressed by Henrique Cisneros, who took that I spent on a curve to pass me. Then change rubbers, so I fell to fourth place, but then I happen to Cisneros, MacNeil (Cooper) and Snow (Madison), and in the end I gave the car in the first place to Spencer “.
The duo leads Canache-Pumpelly GTC class with four-point lead (97-93) on the binomial Bleekemolen-MacNeil and 16 on the couple formed by Henrique Cisneros and Sean Edwards.
