Elkhart Lake, WI - Mark Issa scored the overall GT Sports Club America victory at Road America Sunday afternoon. Ryan Gates continued his dominance in the GT2 competition finishing first in class and second overall. Stu Frederick finished third overall and first in the Iron category. Jason Bell finished fourth.
Issa, from pole, brought the field to the green behind the wheel of his #31 TR3 Racing Ferrari 488 GT3. Gates in his #311 Porsche 911 GT2 RS CS drag raced into the lead while Frederick, in the #57 GMG Racing Porsche 911 GT2 RS CS slotted into second dropping Issa to third, while Bell, in the #2 GMG Racing 911 GT2 RS CS slotted into fourth.
Gates would build a healthy lead up front leaving Frederick to battle with Issa for second overall. As he did on Saturday, Issa regrouped and would get by Frederick and begin a pursuit of Gates up front who held a 7-second advantage.
Then on lap 12 Issa's pursuit was successful and he would slide by Gates through the Kink section and into the lead building an over 7-second advantage. At the checkered, Issa crossed the line 7.6 seconds ahead of Gates. Frederick would finish over 34 seconds behind Gates. Bell finished over 31 seconds behind Frederick.
Results are provisional until posted final. GT Sports Club America drivers now look ahead to September 17-19 and Rounds 7 and 8 at Circuit of the Americas.
