Michael Lewis Prepares For Lime Rock Park

Michael Lewis and the Bryan Herta Autosport No. 98 Hyundai i30 N TCR race car will visit Lime Rock Park this weekend.

Lakeville, Connecticut — After a month’s hiatus, Michael Lewis will compete in Rounds 5 and 6 of the TCR class of the Pirelli World Challenge this weekend at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Connecticut. The Bryan Herta Autosport (BHA) team will bring the No. 98 Hyundai i30 N TCR race car to the seven-turn, 1.5-mile road course for the Grand Prix of Lime Rock on Friday, May 25, and Saturday, May 26.

In four Pirelli World Challenge TCR races this season, Michael Lewis has already earned three podiums.

Michael’s 2018 season is off to a successful start with a win and two second-place finishes in the series’ first four races at Circuit of The Americas and VIRginia International Raceway (VIR).

“I really want to get driving with my team and to have some fun this weekend at Lime Rock,” said Michael Lewis. “It is a track that always has close racing, and you have to be used to having someone right in your mirror and having someone right in front of you.”

Michael Lewis and teammate Mark Wilkins have been at the front of the field in each TCR race weekend so far this season.

He continued, “This weekend is pretty special for the entire team in that Bryan Herta Autosport is also competing in the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500. Our entire BHA, Hyundai TCR team will cheer on Bryan and his team at Indianapolis!”
