Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, USA — T&T’s Daniel Ramoutarsingh and JR Motorsports, in the #18 Trinrico Steel & Wire Products Jaguar XKR, fought hard today in Round 6 of the 2011 SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series event from Road America Raceway, capturing a 2nd place Podium Finish.
Daniel, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, piloted the JR Motorsports #18 Jaguar, around the 4.048 mile, 14 turn track in today’s 25 lap event. “It was a great race, with the exception of transmission issues early on, that just got progressively worse. We lost first and second gears.” comments Daniel. “During the event, we had 2 caution stints. When the first restart came, I tangled a bit with Cliff Ebben, which resulted in Amy (Ruman) getting past me on the inside. I started to really push myself and the car again.”
On the second restart, there was some contact with the #22 car of Carlos deQuesada.
“I had a great car…consistent and strong, for that reason, and the efforts of the team, I was able to bring the car home in 2nd place. Strong and fierce competitors encouraged me to keep pushing today, and that was evident with our result.” says Daniel.
“When I got by Tony (Ave) in turn 1, it was a really great feeling. It began to rain on the back portion of the course, making the last few laps very challenging. However, we overcame those issues, and made it a great finish! A Special thanks to the crew and Trinrico Steel & Wire Products for making today’s results possible!”
