Road America Presents Opportunity for Park Place Motorsports

Thursday, August 1, 2019

Drivers Alan Brynjolfsson and Trent Hindman first win together was at Road America in 2018, this weekend they’re back for a repeat. 
 
Brynjolfsson and Hindman already grabbed their first win of the 2019 MICHELIN Pilot Challenge season at Mid-Ohio SportsCar Course. As always though, Park Place Motorsports is ready for a second win and another shot at the podium. The team enters Road America fourth in the championship points battle, 18 points behind third place. 
 
Brynjolfsson and Hindman took first in a Mustang in 2018, one spot better than their current ride, a Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR. The No. 7 VOLT Lighting Porsche has fared well this summer considering its distaste for heat. Smart strategy by Mike Johnson paired with clean driving has kept Park Place Motorsports performing above expectation. The team enters into the latter half of the season featuring both weather and tracks that should better suit the No. 7 VOLT Lighting Porsche. A late-season podium run is just what the team needs to keeps its championship contention alive.
 
Road America is a 14 turn, 4.05-mile course buried in the heart of Wisconsin near Elkhart Lake and Lake Michigan. Sweeping turns allow more nimble vehicles to keep speed throughout them, but the long front straight will require maximum power to keep up with the competition.

Driver Quotes
 
Alan Brynjolfsson, Sponsor and Driver No. 7 VOLT Lighting Porsche 
“Road America is one of my favorite tracks,” Brynjolfsson said. “I love the high-speed nature of Road America with its fast and challenging corners. I have good memories there as well because of our win there last year. We will be going for the win again.”
 
Trent Hindman, Driver No. 7 VOLT Lighting Porsche
“I think we’re all still trying to catch our breaths and rehydrate after Lime Rock,” Hindman said. “It’s pretty nice looking at the long-range forecast and seeing much cooler conditions heading to Road America. This will be a massive relief for not just teams but also for the performance of our Porsche. We know the 718 GT4 is phenomenal in these cooler conditions, the Park Place Motorsports team always does an amazing job in extracting every last ounce of performance out of this car, and Alan has been driving absolutely amazing these last few weeks. Our time to get back to the top step is coming.”
