Ferrari drivers reclaim GT lead
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 11, 2003) -- The Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series released its latest point standings following round five at California Speedway last weekend. Brumos Racing drivers Hurley Haywood and J.C. France are still on top of the Daytona Prototype driver standings, however their teammates Mike Borkowski and David Donohue have moved up behind them in the rankings after their win in the Grand American 400 and now trail the leaders by only 13 points.
Haywood and France's #59 Brumos Racing Porsche continues to lead the Daytona Prototype team owner standings, while the team's #58 Red Bull Porsche took over second after its win. Bad luck befell Darren Law and the G&W Motorsports team at California Speedway, resulting in Law dropping to fifth place in the standings, while his team slid to third.
Drivers Terry Borcheller and Forest Barber and their Bell Motorsports #54 Chevy are only two points shy of Law and G&W Motorsports in both the driver and team owner standings.
The GTS win by Tommy Riggins and David Machavern at the Grand American 400 moved the pair closer to points leader Joao Barbosa in the class driver standings. Riggins and Machavern gained three points on the leader and now trail Barbosa by 17 points.
The Heritage Motorsports #48 Mustang continues to have a strong lead in the GTS team owner point standings.
Ferrari drivers Cort Wagner and Brent Martini reclaimed the lead in the GT driver standings after posting their third win of the season in Fontana. Wagner and Martini displaced Marcus Motorsports drivers Hugh Plumb and Brian Cunningham, who suffered early trouble in the Grand American 400. The Ferrari drivers and Ferrari of Washington team now hold a four-point advantage over Plumb and Martini and Marcus Motorsports in both the GT driver and team owner points.
In the manufacturer standings, Porsche and FABCAR continue their reign atop the Daytona Prototype engine and chassis points. Mosler still has a strong lead over Ford in the GTS class, while Ferrari edged out Porsche for the top spot in the GT standings with a one-point lead.
