Congrats to 8legs/ScotcH

Awesome driving, well deserved 2nd! I was watching in 5, looked like you almost had him by the end, just ran out of laps to pass. Wanted to congratulate you in person after but I guess you guys were off getting drunk already.

What a welcome surprise the CTCC was too, I didn't know they did that. Dropped the boring formula ford/mazda/atlantic stuff. The CTCC was the 2nd most interesting race of the day after the main event.

I think Arek won dude... I watched every second of live timing and he just got by right at the end. Great drive, Congrats!

Holy crap, no way! I swear I never saw him ahead of the Subaru after the initial reshuffle - guess the Subaru went past again during the in lap. Man, congrats to the power of 10! I know how much it meant to you to win at MoSport.

Considering we put the engine & transmission back in the car on wednesday night, it's an even bigger accomplishment

great drive, was @ corner two watching as the subaru hit traffic and slowed him just enough for you to gain ground. The pass just before the finish was just amazing highlight of the day

Thanks guys! It was a super fantastic weekend!

Yeah, traffic allowed me to close the gap, then I was on his tail for a couple laps, when my crew informed me it was last lap .... It was now or never! I set it up so that I got an awesome launch out of 10 (where the subaru is a bit slow), quick downshift to 3rd to get a bit of a jump, and drag race to the finish ... I got him by maybe 2 feet. 0.017s

Glad you enjoyed it, and glad I could represent the BMW brand at such a great event! I'm super pumped

Speaking of the Jumbotrons, how awesome are those? Ron Fellows hasn't owned the track for more than a few months and it's already improved in awesome ways.

Oh ya the screens are awesome for sure I hope we see them in more locations soon

After watching a race on a corner with a screen it feels dumb to be without one

The subaru got caught in some lapped traffic, and that allowed me to close the gap. I tailed him for 2 laps, then made my move on the last corner!

Btw, my name is Arek
