Thats a good turnout for sure. Thanks to Jonny, Doug, Julian and all the Homestead crew for making this annual event happen.

I ran the IGT8 car and that car is amazing. I was under powered all weekend and still could turn fast laps and it was all from that great car. I ended up running the stock set up that Rino gave me, for the most part and never changed anything on my car. It was fast from the start of the first day till the end.

Congrats to all the GT racers and especially to the IGT8 crowd. For a new brand this thing is a real pro racers car for sure. It TQ'd the spec 5 port class and Won. And it took 1st and 2nd in the Pro class. And anyone there at the race knows just how fast this car is. Rino was on fire in the final and I was able to keep it clean and fast enough for the Win.

Rino hit a home run with the chassis and choices made to make the IGT8 a true race car.

Thanks for the great weekend and bringing a new brand to the class. It will help the class and racers for sure.

See everyone at the next race in Peru. Can't wait to run the GT again over there.

DJ I must agree with you on every sentence you wrote !! From the drop of the flag Rino was blazing fast and showed a very skillful aggressive style that I remember from his NT1 days in FORGASS !! And yes you drove a very smart clean race and deserved every bit of the win !! Still amazed that after some many incidents (out of fuel, dead glow plug, hit out at least 4 times by 3 different drivers that Rino clawed back and got 2nd place ...WOW !!!
WELL HERE IS THE GT SPORTSMAN VID FROM THE START TO THE HALFWAY MARK !!! ANOTHER EPIC WIN FOR THE IGT8 TEAM !!

We would like to thank all the racers who attended the Pan American GT Race and contribute to make it one of the biggest GT only race there is.

There was a lot of close competition and we are very glad to have won both classes but even more to see all IGT8 drivers enjoying our product and perform at their best. Having 50% of the Open A-main shows how successful our product is considering IGT8 only has a few months in the market.

Congrats to the winners for a great performance and to the IGT8 crew that made sure everything went smooth in the pits. We always say it takes a team to win and they all did their part.

We hope to see everybody soon, next race for the IGT8 team will be the Pacific Cup in Lima-Peru where DJ and Fabrizio will join the rest of the international Team coming for the event, Pato Concha (Chile), Marco Amaral (Brazil), Herman Saa (Ecuador)
