G1 Racing Picks up Another Podium

G1 Racing's string of successes continued at Mosport this weekend where Sasha Anis had one of the most exciting races of his career as he fought for a place on the podium. Qualifying third on Saturday, Sasha Anis put in a solid performance during the first race to ensure he started at the front of the grid for Sunday's feature race.

The race started poorly and Sasha Anis dropped to fifth position. A neat clean move in Corner One on the Lombardi Honda brought him into fourth position. He then chased down the Audette Acura and in a thrilling last lap showdown, squeezed past Audette to take third place.

Sasha Anis commented: "It was the greatest race of my life. Even though it's a third place, it's a big win for us."

The third podium in a row caps an extraordinary season of racing for the Hyundai team. Starting mid-pack at the beginning of the year, the team have quickly moved up to the front of the grid. Now with three trophies in three races, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is quickly gaining a strong race pedigree with a reputation for excellent speed and handling.

The team now heads to ICAR Mirabel on September 11-12 for the last weekend of the Castrol Canadian Touring Car Championship. Although the competition will be fierce, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe has a superb braking system. G1 Racing has done well on these short sharp circuits and Mirabel should be no exception.
