|Classic Road America Grand-Am Battle Puts Two Porsches In Top-10|
| Porsche entered today's two-hour Rolex 250 Driven by VISITFLORIDA.COM at Road America with high expectations. The quartet of Porsche 911 GT3 Cup entries used the lower-aerodynamic drag nature of the venerable 911 design to be at or near the top of the speed charts all weekend. The fight for the GT class victory was forming to be an extension of this.
Ultimately, in classic Road America form, the battle divided the fortunes of the team's in half. The legendary No. 59 Brumos Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup shared by Andrew Davis (Bogart, Ga.) and Leh Keen (Charleston, S.C.) finished fifth while the upstart Horton Autosport No. 73 Porsche finished tenth. On the opposite side of the ledger, the No. 44 Magnus Racing Porsche ended the Elkhart Lake, Wisc.-race with an engine failure and the No. 67 Sargent and Lundy Porsche was destroyed in an accident.
Porsche lost the first of its four entries within the first five minutes of the race. The Sargent and Lundy TRG machine, shared by Steven Bertheau (Aurora, Ill.) and Spencer Pumpelly (Suwannee, Ga.), brought out the first caution of the day when a suspected cut tire prevented Bertheau from turning through the very quick 'Kink' corner of the 4.048-mile, 14-turn circuit. The No. 67 made heavy contact with the wall at the driver-side door. Betheau needed to be cut from the blue and black Porsche resulting in a 20-minute caution period. It is believed that Bertheau sustained the cut tire when another GT competitor made contact with the left-front tire of the TRG Porsche a few corners earlier. Despite the serious nature of the crash, the Porsche crash structure did its job well.
Bertheau was awake and alert in the Road America infield care center with no signs of serious injury. The car finished 16th.
