From press release

Less than a week after winning the World Challenge Series race in Toronto, Montreal driver Kuno Wittmer was back in action in the United SportsCar Championship (USCC), for the seventh round of the season at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.

Wittmer and his teammate Jonathan Bomarito drove their Dodge Viper SRT to victory in GT Le Mans class.

"It was not a relaxing race, far from it," said Wittmer.

"It wasn’t easy during my stint, the gaps were very small amongst the contenders in our category. At one point, I dropped to eighth place and I had to climb back."

In the standings, Wittmer and Bomarito jumped from fourth to second, only thirteen points from the leaders.

The series now heads to Elkhart Lake for the next round of the season.
