Tiger Racing’s Paul Brown Sweeps the Weekend’s Double Header at Mid-Ohio Stretching His Lead in World Challenge GTS Championship
Covina, California (15 August 2011) – Paul Brown increased his lead in the SCCA Pro Racing Pirelli World Challenge GTS Driver’s Championship by sweeping both races of the weekend at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Standing on the top step of the podium after Sunday’s race, he marked his fourth win of the season thus far. New team sponsor, One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning couldn’t have come on board at a better time.
Brown was exhilarated and exhausted after what’s been described as a “rough and tumble” race on Sunday afternoon. He said, “We were all looking forward to getting back to racing after the long summer break and Mid-Ohio is one of my favorites on the schedule. Going into Rounds 7 & 8, I had one goal in mind and that was to keep the Championship alive and finish both races in the best position possible. After winning Saturday’s race, obviously the team was very pleased, but then to go back-to-back on Sunday? It was like a dream! The team we’ve assembled has given me the confidence that I need as a driver and has been the push to get me to the top. I couldn’t be happier with what we’ve accomplished this year.”
With seasoned Crew Chief, Adam Cox leading the crew and driver, Paul Brown behind the wheel, the team is on a roll and every member is excited about and dedicated to winning this Championship. Be sure to catch the excitement of the past two races when they air on Versus on 20 August at 5pm EST.
