Trillium Trophy to Strachan

The CASC Touring-GT Championship's final race at Shannonville Motorsport Park once again saw Malcolm Strachan come away with maximum points. Also, he was awarded the Trillium Trophy by the Deutcher Auto Club for winning the primary race of the weekend.

Despite securing the majority of the points for fastest qualifier, fastest race lap, and two wins, it was no walk in the park in Sunday's feature event.

Rochester Porsche 911 RSR driver Joel Reiser diced with Strachan for the entire 40 minutes of the twisty Shannonville race circuit. With three laps to go, Reiser made a decisive move on the inside of the hairpin turn, which leads onto the back straight. Reiser's Porsche and Strachan's Corvette C5 came into contact, causing damage to the side-exiting exhaust system, fiberglass door, and front and rear wheels on the Corvette, as well as puncturing Rieser's left rear tire. After sliding off the track, both cars continued, with Reiser in the lead, and Strachan in second and down on power with the bent exhaust.

Reiser's lead was short lived however, as the punctured rear tire lost all air-pressure. Strachan, in his Williams Performance Friction/Konica Canada Corvette, took the lead, and both Strachan and Reiser limped home with damaged cars. DeWolfe started last in his BMW, due to fuel problems in the first race, but put in an incredible drive to finish third in Sunday's final race.

The series moves to Mosport International Raceway for the next round, August 9-10.
