Mustangs Return to World Challenge Action at Mid-Ohio

As the the Pirelli World Challenge GTS class season picks up again, American muscle cars, led by the Ford Mustang, have dominated their class to this point in the season.

West coaster Paul Brown, driving the #50 Mustang Boss 302S, leads the championship battle after wins at Mosport and Long Beach. Within striking distance, however, is the #73 Mustang FR500S driven by Eric Foss,  just 23 points behind Brown. Looking for another win this weekend, it would be his first since St. Petersburg.

Making a move up the point standings with a win at Mosport – his first career victory – is Utah native, Ben Crosland, in the #25 Mustang FR500S. A former Ford Racing Mustang Challenge driver, Crosland’s win and runner-up in the doubleheader pushed him ahead of defending GTS champion Peter Cunningham , driving the #1 Acura TSX. Cunningham’s car is the highest-placed car in the GTS standings that isn’t a Mustang.

Also among the Mustang contingent this weekend is Round Two winner Jason von Kluge, in the #19 Mustang Boss 302S, Brad Adams in the #75 Mustang FR500S, Chris Waterman with his #17 Ford Mustang FR500S, George Winkler in the #27 Mustang FR500S and Richard Golinello #55 Mustang FR500S.

The World Challenge Series has been on hiatus since the double header at Mosport in late May. The Mid-Ohio gathering will also see two races run – one on Saturday and one on Sunday. Up to date results are posted on the World Challenge web site.
