Mark Motors Racing driver Perry Bortolotti also produced impressive results finishing fourth place in the Masters Platinum Cup.
“Oh wow, I don’t think I ever worked so hard in a car! I had a terrible start and a couple guys got by me and I couldn’t believe it, so I was kind of flustered in the beginning but then I got by Mantella and man did he up his game! I have to congratulate Anthony (Mantella) because he gave me the room to make the pass. That was a very gentlemanly move and I will remember that. I definitely want to thank Mark Motors for giving me the opportunity. The car was amazing!” said driver Marco Cirone.
Overall, both Marco Cirone and Perry Bortolotti finished the first weekend of the series with tremendous success as Marco Cirone finished in fifth place overall and Perry Bortolotti finished in 8th place overall.
