Fuentes & Baptista Take GT World Challenge Spoils

AUSTIN, Texas – Martin Fuentes and Rodrigo Baptista piloted their Ferrari 488 GT3 to a convincing Pro/Am and overall GT World Challenge America powered by AWS victory at Circuit of the Americas Saturday afternoon. While Fuentes grew a 1.6-second lead by lap two, Blackstock and Udell began a multi-lap battle for position, with the driver of the No. As the clock clicked down to the pit window opening at the 45-minute mark of the race, both Blackstock and Udell closed within a second of the leader Fuentes. Udell was the last competitor into the pits before the closing of the window and once the charts recycled, Baptista remained in the lead, with Hindman now up into second, and Ward, who took over for Udell, now in third. From there Baptista hit his marks and grew his lead, taking the checkered 6.7 seconds ahead of Hindman, and over 40 seconds ahead of Ward.
