Mosing Not Counting Out Title Hopes
Thursday, September 8, 2016

Riding a four-race streak of top-five finishes of the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge in the No. 56 Murillo Racing Porsche Cayman, Austin resident Jeff Mosing is looking to continue that trend in the upcoming Circuit of The Americas 150. After placing fifth with Eric Foss at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and Lime Rock Park, the team rebounded from an incident early in opening practice to take third at Road America last month, a result they matched in the most recent round at VIRginia International Raceway.

“It’s going to be awesome, having friends and family out there watching me race,” Mosing said. “We’ve closed the gap on second place in the ST points. It’s fun to believe mathematically that we can still win the championship, but a combination of things would have to happen. I love all my competitors and wouldn’t wish any bad luck on them, but we’ll just keep doing what we do and try to stay consistent.”

Mosing and Foss opened the season with a victory at Daytona and finished third at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, but finishes of 21st at Sebring and 22nd at Watkins Glen early in the season hurt the chances of the 2014 ST team champions.

Mosing will get two days of seat time at COTA, alternating between a Riley Track Car and the Porsche he will also race in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama on Friday night

“Even though I’ve spent a lot of time at COTA, it’s always great to get a refresher before the event,” Mosing said. “The track requires so much finesse and patience in every corner – each corner is so unique that you can’t rush it. There are not many tracks like that. I’m really looking forward to racing here next year when we come back in May.”
