Hyundai Motorsports sixth in Mont-Tremblant.

Villaconn International picked up its fourth Grand-Am Cup win of the season today in the Mont-Tremblant 250 at Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant. The Sport Touring I class featured nose-to-tail racing throughout nearly the entire race.

Team Hyundai Motorsports and car #6 of Mark Craig & Steven Gorriaran took the sixth spot on a total of 25 cars in the ST class. Car #14 of Peter MacLeod and Wade Gaughran retired on the 43rd lap because of mechanical failure. They were running 3rd prior to retirement.

Team Manager Ron Matthews commented: ^ÓWe are satisfied with the results. We know we could have been on the podium if we didn^Òt experienced early misfortune. We all know we can run as fast as anyone. We just need a little bit more adjustments and luck, then we^Òll be on the podium,^Ô concluded Matthews.
