Lamborghini dominates IMSA round at Laguna Seca
with Paul Miller Racing and Magnus Racing
Lamborghini dominated IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship round at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca thanks to Paul Miller Racing flag to flag victory and Magnus Racing P3.
After earning the GT Daytona class pole on Saturday, Corey Lewis and Bryan Sellers crushed the opposition by leading every single lap of the race – 110 in total. The result came after the #48 Huracán GT3 Evo topped the timesheets in both practice sessions on Friday and finished second fastest in Saturday morning’s practice. At the green flag, Lewis opened a healthy lead and handed over to Sellers with one hour, 42 minutes remaining. Sellers remained in the lead, pitted again with 58 minutes to go and eventually crossed the finish line with 31.424 seconds over the field.
The victory was Sellers tenth in IMSA premier competition and fourth for Paul Miller Racing in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Lewis scored his third IMSA victory and second for Paul Miller Racing.
Meanwhile, John Potter and Andy Lally completed a great comeback, clinching a podium spot at the wheel of #44 Magnus Racing Huracán GT3 Evo after starting from P10. The final round of the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship will be staged at Road Atlanta on October 12.
“We had a great race car. Bryan and Corey did a fantastic job keeping everything clean, but we also didn’t have the same level of tire degradation that some of the other cars experienced,” Paul Miller Racing founder, Paul Miller said. “The exciting part to us is that by winning we were able to move Lamborghini into a one-point lead in the Manufacturer’s Championship in the GTD class. So now we can go to Petit and really fight heads up with Acura for the Manufacturer’s Championship”
