Acura Doubles Down With GTD Score

BRASELTON, Ga. — Gradient Racing put an exclamation point on a huge day for Acura by winning the GTD class of the 25th annual Motul Petit Le Mans at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, the season finale of the 2022 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The eighth of the race’s nine safety car periods soon followed. “Ten years ago was my first race in the U.S., at this track. The Vasser Sullivan crew thought the GTD PRO win was well in hand late in Saturday’s race. The penalty put Hawksworth, Ben Barnicoat and Kyle Kirkwood atop the GTD PRO podium, securing the first WeatherTech Championship endurance race win for the team and Lexus as well as clinching second place in the GTD PRO standings for Barnicoat and the No. 9 Pfaff Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R that clinched the season championship by starting the race.
