August 7, 2019 – This week, the CMS-TXL GT3 series took on Barber Motorsports Park for the fifth race of the season, marking the halfway point.
The 29 car field took the start with Humberto Roca leading the field, followed closely by Victor Tanaka. The AM class was led by Marco Calabi, and Christopher Rines led the Silver class at the start. The 75-minute race took it’s toll on many, as this tight circuit combined with minimal run-offs led to more than a few bent fenders.
In the end, Roca would pull away and win by a 32-second margin over Tanaka, with Angel Ladesma in third overall. The Silver class was led from start to finish by Rines, with Andrew Cheslock finishing second and John Prince completing the podium. The AM class was a tight affair, with several drivers taking the point throughout the race, but in the end JT Tami would make a late pass on Miguel Antonio Alcrudo for the class win, and AM points-leader Lowesky D’Oleo would finish third after having to serve an early penalty and working his way back through the field.
The next race for the GT3 Series is schedule for August 21st at the new Silverstone GP Circuit.
