May 19th 2015 – This past Victoria Day weekend was filled with thrills and action during the first two rounds of the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge by Michelin at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. Mark Motors Racing’s very own Marco Cirone and Harry Steenbakkers both placed in the top five of the overall event.
With his No. 88 car, veteran Marco Cirone placed second overall with 4.897 seconds off the leader in the 2.459-mile circuit. In addition to his second place overall finish, Cirone maintained his perfect record with another Platinum Masters victory.
Rookie Harry Steenbakkers finished fourth in the No. 78 car after intense duels for position with Tim Sanderson, Etienne Borgeat and Carlos Quesada at various points during the 45-minute race Sunday. He used an aggressive pass of Carlos de Quesada between Turns 9 and 10, including side-by-side contact, to secure fourth place with three-minutes, 30 seconds in the race.
Round 3 and 4 are scheduled for June 12-14 during Honda Indy Toronto on the streets of Toronto.
