WeatherTech Racing Finishes Eighth in Canada
 
BOWMANVILLE, Ont. Canada, (July 8, 2018) - WeatherTech Racing drivers Cooper MacNeil (Hinsdale, Ill.) and Jeff Segal (Miami, Fla.) finished eighth in today's running of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP).
 
MacNeil took the starting stint at the wheel of the No. 63 WeatherTech Racing Ferrari for the two-hour-forty-five-minute race at CTMP. Enduring two early cautions and subsequent restarts, he was able to turn the white and black Scuderia Corsa prepared Ferrari over to Segal in the top five in class. Soon after the team had to serve a 60-second penalty for running the pit exit light, taking them down a lap to the competition and sealing their eighth-place finish.
 
"I had a good stint to open the race," MacNeil said. "The WeatherTech Ferrari was handling well and I had to navigate two restarts following cautions. There was some crazy racing going on all around the track today. I turned it over to Jeff in the top five in GTD. Unfortunately, he ran a stop sign at pit exit and had to come in and serve a penalty which put us down a lap. In these short races with this competition you can't have those kinds of miscues. We will come back in two weeks at Lime Rock and look for a better result."
 
"A day of what ifs," Segal said. "We were as fast as the leaders at the end there, just not on the lead lap. The team made some great changes to the car from practice yesterday to the race. We had a really good competitive car. Cooper drove a strong stint and picked up some positions for us. We just got caught out on pit lane. The red light came on, we didn't see it, didn't stop. It's tough, we had a podium car today."


The next round for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GTD cars will be in two weeks at the Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut, July 20-21.
