- May 28, 2008
Today the Historic Porsche Cup moves to Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal Canada for its second round of the championship.
The previous round at Sebring International Raceway saw a dominating Ross McGregor in the qualification and both races leaving everyone behind with an impressive pace. The first race podium was completed by Silvino Rodrigues in second place and Guilherme Silva taking the third step of the podium.
The second race was a real thriller until the final lap where Jarek Kostowski beat Silvino Rodrigues at the chequered flag by a margin of only .061 and both drivers completed the podium behind McGregor.
Circuit Gilles Villeneuve
Today the Porsche Historic Cup takes us to a different type of circuit, while Sebring is a fast flowing track Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is more tighter and the drivers will have to be careful not to end their race into the barriers.
The circuit has many chicanes with high curbs that will unbalance the cars so expect a lot of sliding and wall rubbing, many overtakes and side by side action in some of the chicanes. Especially at the Senna chicane, where drivers can defend their position on the outside of the racing line, giving them the advantage for the right-hander that follows.
Tonight's live streamed event will again be a double sprint format with two sets of races of 16 laps each preceded by a 15 minutes qualification to determine the starting grid.
