LEWIS QUALIFIES GILBERT KORTHOFF MERCEDES 10th AT ROAD AMERICA

Making his first start at Road America in a GT-type sports car, Gilbert Korthoff Motorsports’ Shane Lewis quickly got up to speed by qualifying 10th for Sunday’s IMSA Sportscar Weekend at Road America.

Lewis turned a lap of 2:09.990-seconds, battling tricky weather conditions on the historic four-mile circuit in the No. 32 Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo co-driven by Guy Cosmo.

“I would have liked to have done better, but I’m happy with P-10 considering everything that’s been going on,” Lewis said. “We got to the grid just in the nick of time. We have been working to get our setup right. We went out there on slick tires, and unfortunately rain came on my hot lap. I managed to get a lap in, and that was good enough for P-10.

With IMSA’s new twin-tier qualifying for the GTD class, Lewis’ lap set the team’s position on the starting grid. Cosmo then went out for a second 15-minute session, which awards points for GTD competitors. Since the team is not racing for the championship, Cosmo recorded a lap of 2:19.128-seconds and parked the Mercedes.

The two-hour, 40-minute race takes the green flag at 1:40 p.m. on Sunday.
