Terry Borcheller enjoyed a fourth-place GT finish in the American Le Mans Series race in Trois-Rivières, Qué. Borcheller, of Phoenix, and his co-driver Shane Lewis of Jupiter, Fla., combined to improve eight positions in the demanding three-hour race.
Borcheller qualified the No. 63 ACEMCO Motorsports Ferrari 360 Modena GT 12th on the GT grid, with a lap time of one minute 6.937 seconds on the 1.52-mile street circuit. Lewis started the race, but was hampered by the first caution period, when he lost a lap due to the car's track position when the caution started. Borcheller drove the final one-hour 45-minute stint. The pair moved steadily through the field to finish fourth, in a race hammered by attrition.
"It was amazing to take fourth place," Borcheller said. "It was a real turnaround for the team. We lost a lap early, so we were playing catchup the rest of the time. Jim Bell did an excellent job engineering the car and the Yokohama tires were great - I ran the whole stint on the same set of tires. The team really came together and did a great job on the strategy and pit stops. To finish fourth is really big for the whole team."
Official results posted on the American Le Mans Series website on Sunday night show Terry Borcheller and Shane Lewis drove the No. 63 ACEMCO Motorsports Ferrari to a GT podium finish in the ALMS race at Trois-Rivières. They were moved up to third place after the previously announced third-place car was excluded for a technical violation.
