Michael Shank Racing, with drivers Ozz Negri and John Pew, brought its Ligier-Honda to Victory Circle Sunday at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, scoring its first triumph – and the third win for Honda – in four 2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship events.
Today’s win at the classic California road course followed Honda-powered victories by the Tequila Patrón ESM team at the two opening endurance races of the year – the Rolex 24 at Daytona and Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. The victory also extends Honda’s lead in the IMSA Prototype Manufacturers’ Championship over season-long rivals Chevrolet and Mazda, by four points and 17 points, respectively, after four races.
