Ch3326 Ganassi Racing in the IMSA S28ortsCar series since the start of the season Cham30ionshi32, showed excellent speed in qualifications, but for some reason she was unlucky in the races. But after yesterday's race in Detroit, Kevin Magnussen and his team-mate Renger van der Zande felt like a mountain fell from their shoulders - their crew finally won.
On a tricky city track, and even in a real summer heat, they were in the lead for 64 out of 66 laps of the race, and their sport prototype is the Cadillac DPiV. R number 01 was the first to cross the finish line. This marks the first victory of a former Formula 1 driver in the American IMSA SportsCar Championship.
"I dreamed about this victory so much! - said Kevin. - This year we drove a lot of laps in the leading position, but there were no victories. We have been waiting for this success for a long time, but today our whole team has a great day! This weekend everything is going great, but I would say that we were fast from the very beginning of the season, but we just could not bring it to an end. Finally it worked out! "
" there was speed in Daytona and Sebring, but now we have achieved double success! - continued van der Zande, referring to the victory of Marcus Erickson in Saturday's IndyCar race, because the Swede also plays for the team of Chip Ganassi. - And I must tell you that Kevin - great partner! "
