After a challenging weekend for Kelly-Moss drivers at VIR in August, a successful practice round at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca renews excitement for the entire team.
Great race conditions were met with a fast practice as both Roman De Angelis and Alan Metni secured the fastest lap times in their class. Kurt Fazekas and David Brule also put down fast, clean practice lap times with all drivers hoping this translates to another successful race weekend as the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge nears the end of the race season.
Kelly-Moss currently holds the overall Team Points lead in the GT3 Cup Platinum series, while De Angelis in the No. 79 Racing for Children’s Porsche, sponsored by Medical Properties Trust to benefit Children’s of Alabama, holds the top spot among drivers. Metni, racing in the Platinum Masters class, also holds the top spot. With few races left for the season, all Kelly-Moss drivers are looking forward to great results and bringing home the checkered flag.
