|Mazda fares well at Road Atlanta race meeting
The 3rd Gentleman's Cup race at Road Atlanta had ITR participation. Michael Ryhl drove with determination in the all-Mazda MX-5 race and secured a rock solid P10 0.35 seconds after finn Sami Ovaskainen, who only managed to pass the ITR ace on L33 of 36.

|'I started out Q13 and had a lot of exciting dices with very skilled simracers' said Michael Ryhl after the race. Among the starters were LFS Danish Champion Richard Torp Jensen and the flying finn Sami Ovaskainen, and the race was run in a very disciplined manner; a true Gentlemen's Race as boasted by the series' title.
The ITR car pitted late and gained a P6 on that account, but the inevitable pause for fresh tires shoved Michael Ryhl back to P12, which then improved to P9 before the aforementioned Sami Ovaskainen stole 9th slot three laps before the chequered flag fell.
The Scuderia Into The Red entry now resides at #11 in the Gentlemen's Cup.
Up from #19 ... Godspeed.
