Cunningham Drives RTR Acura to 5th World Challenge Title; Kleinubing and Wittmer 2nd and 3rd in Standings

RealTime Racing team leader Peter Cunningham earned his fifth World Challenge Drivers' Championship today in an Acura TSX. He finished fourth in the final round of the SCCA Speed Touring Car Championship here at Road Atlanta. This feat was the icing on the cake following the all-important Manufacturers' Championship that was secured for Acura in the previous race at Mosport.

Pierre Kleinubing, after challenging for the lead in a quest for his fifth Speed Touring Car championship, finished third. With only two corners remaining, Kuno Wittmer still had hope when his TSX went side by side with Cunningham's.

"Kuno was closing on me at the end," Cunningham noted. "Had he passed me, the points were so close, that his finishing ahead of me would have made Pierre the Drivers' Champion, with Kuno second and me third."

As it turned out, the final Drivers' Championship standings had Cunningham, Kleinubing and Wittmer finishing 1-2-3 giving RealTime it's 11th Drivers' Championship. This is Acura's 7th Manufacturers' Championship to which RealTime contributed.

Eric Curran finished seventh and Glenn Bocchino was 19th in the team's other two cars.
