WeatherTech International Challenge TRACK RECAP

The WeatherTech International Challenge (WIC) race at Road America in July was busy and successful.

14 cars were race prepared, transported to the race with full track support. A full range of race cars could be found under the RM Motorsports (RM) tent, CAN AM cars from a 1966 Lola T70 MKII B originally driven by Parnelli Jones to the 1974 Championship Shadow DN4-1A originally, raced by Jackie Oliver. Formula cars were represented by two F5000 cars and the Championship winning 1994 Reynard Indy Car, originally driven by Jacques Villeneuve. Additional cars of interest were a 1971 Chevron B19, Devin and a 2015 Ferrari 458 that raced in the Ferrari Challenge Series.

The WIC event starts on Tuesday, providing plenty of track time, one-on-one with the drivers and their cars for the spectators, race car Concourse in downtown Elkhart Lake and of course a whole lot of great action on the track.

This year drivers and their cars saw lots of podium finishes, most notably was Craig Bennett winning 1st in both the CAN AM and F5000 races with his brother Kirt placing 2nd in both. The Friday Night Racecar Concourse found Jim Bartel’s 1975 Shadow DN6 winning its category and the 1974 Shadow DN4-1A winning runner up. The only thing that limited track time for the cars RM had at the track was the rain.
