Across the pond the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) arrives at Mosport Park in Canada for the fifth round of its season.
It will be a depleted appearance by Ferrari in Canada, sadly after a serious accident at Lime Rock park the Risi Competizione team have announced that it is unable to reapir the car in time and must miss the round. Instead of travelling directly from Connecticut to Canada, the team were forced to return home to repair the car. “It is extremely unfortunate that we have found ourselves in this position,” said Team Principal Giuseppe Risi. “We will return ready to compete at Road America in August, and we wish all our fellow ALMS entrants a safe event in Canada.”
The remaining Ferrari of Team West / AJR / Boardwalk Ferrari will be driven by Bill Sweedler and Townsend Bell. The race in Canada starts on Sunday at 12:00 and runs for 2 hours and 45mins and will be broadcast live on ESPN2.
