Driver Insight: “There’s no other circuit I look forward to more than Road America. It’s a classic racetrack that has everything a driver could wish for – it’s very fast, very hilly and very challenging. No wonder that sports car fans travel from far and wide to witness this race. Road America is my all-time favorite in the USA, and that’s not just because I’ve celebrated many successes there with Porsche.” – Joerg Bergmesister, driver No. 73 Park Place Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R
