Gunn Slings Around For Pole-Winning GTD PRO Lap

ALTON, Va. – Ross Gunn, who set the track record at VIRginia International Raceway for the GT Daytona (GTD) class of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in 2021, was a pacesetter for the second year in a row. This year, his effort was rewarded with the Motul Pole Award in the GTD PRO class for the Michelin GT Challenge at VIR. Gunn ran a lap timed at 1 minute, 43.953 seconds (113.243 mph) Saturday in the No. Ward will start sixth overall in Sunday’s race after his lap of 1:45.010 (112.103 mph) in the car he co-drives with Philip Ellis. He also claimed the GTD pole at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in May. We start the race on the front, which is a good starting position. The challengers for the GTD championship will start farther back in the 18-car field.
