IMSA 2014 - Mosport Qualifying

The 2014 running of the Mobil 1 Grand Prix in Canada has already served up some nasty surprises for the DeltaWing Racing team and sports car legend Boris Said – but a weekend that’s been full of surprises came up all Yacaman yesterday. After leading both of Friday’s practice rounds, Gustavo Yacaman took another giant step toward achieving that goal on Saturday, running a 1:09.167-sec. lap to give the Nissan-powered OAK Racing team its second consecutive TOTAL Pole Award.

“Of course, our goal is to win,” said Yacaman, in a post-qualy interview with IMSA. “We’re a race-winning team, and we haven’t won yet. Hopefully, everything will go our way tomorrow. There are many variables in motorsports, and everything has to go your way in order to win.”

Starting behind Yacaman on the second row is the Spirit of Daytona Corvette DP, with drivers Richard Westbrook and Michael Valiente, which qualified third. The Corvette’s power advantage off the line should make the start of today’s race pretty exciting.

The IMSA 2014 Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix at Mosport will be a 2-hour and 45-minute race with one driver change. The the green flag is set to drop at 2:05 PM (EST), and you can watch the race live on FOX Sports 1. Enjoy!
