“The team was fast at this track last year, so it will be great to lean on their experience gained, and also from my teammate Ryan Dalziel, who won both races over that weekend,” said Michael Lewis. “Our EFFORT Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Rs have been running well since the last race, and we hope to continue that progress and speed to this upcoming race in Mid-Ohio. Thank you to everyone on the team who have been working hard on the race weekends and also back at the shop to keep our Porsche 911s running fast. I look forward to help keep EFFORT Racing at the front of the pack on this historic North American circuit during the upcoming weekend.”
