K-PAX Racing Returns to Road America with Flying Lizard Motorsports ELKHART LAKE, Wis - ELKHART LAKE, Wis

Jun. 24 2015

After three weeks since the previous round of racing, the second half of the Pirelli World Challenge season is about to get underway this weekend at Road America for Rounds 11, 12, and 13 of the championship. The winners of Round 10, K-PAX Racing with Flying Lizard Motorsports will race the No. 6 and No. 9 McLaren 650S GT3s at the four-mile, 14-turn road course nestled in the hills of Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

Contesting the only two McLarens in the race series, the team’s performance so far this season has McLaren currently sitting first in the Manufacturer’s Championship. With three wins and six podiums between the two drivers, Kevin Estre and Robert Thorne sit second and tenth in the driver championship standings. After the team won Round 10 at the Detroit Grand Prix, weather conditions forced the event promoters and race series sanctioning body to postpone Round 11 to this weekend’s double header at Road America.

In the 2014 Pirelli World Challenge season, K-PAX Racing and Robert Thorne celebrated success at the famed road course, earning a second place finish after starting 14th. In the American Le Mans Series, Flying Lizard Motorsports earned pole position in 2012 with Marco Holzer, and in 2013 won the event with Spencer Pumpelly and Nelson Canache.

The three races will be spread out over the course of three days, with just two test sessions and one practice before qualifying.  Races on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will stream live on world-challenge.tv, and re-air on CBS Sports Network Sunday, July 5, at 2:00PM Eastern.
