After IMSA announced in August 2016 that the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge would see a transition to the GT4 technical specifications in its Grand Sport (GS) class, there was a wave of excitement throughout the racing world about what the changes would bring.

Murillo Racing Teammates Ready to Make Most of Home Race

It’s been a promising start to the 2017 IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge season for Murillo Racing teammates Eric Foss and Jeff Mosing.

The question caught Scott Maxwell, driver of the No. 60 KohR Ford Mustang in the Grand Sport class of the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge.

 

So, Scott, how many laps do you figure you have around a racetrack in Mustangs?

No doubt.

Half as long, but twice as tough?

Yeah, that’s pretty much what most competitors think about Friday’s Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Sebring 120, the second event in the series’ 2017 race schedule.

The season opener was the BMW Endurance Challenge at the smooth Daytona International Speedway on January 27. It was a four-hour race, much longer than usual for the Continental Tire Challenge competitors.
