Bonaccorsi to start 17th
Sonoma, Calif. July 16, 2005 Paul Bonaccorsi qualified 19th in the #7 GTO for Round Seven of the SCCA Pro SPEED World Challenge GT race at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California, July 15-17. The GT race runs at 1:05pm today as part of the Infineon Grand Prix of Sonoma Presented by Ravenswood in conjunction with the American Le Mans Series.
"I'm having a great time," said Bonaccorsi. "The power in these GT cars is amazing. I'm carefully bringing myself up-to-speed and Stu's been a huge help in helping me bring down my times. Getting the feel of how to let these cars roll and use the momentum is the big trick."
"I'm ok with my starting position," Paul continued. "The standing start is pretty tricky, so I don't mind being a bit further back. Once things get sorted it out, we'll work our way up-- I'm fairly confident we can give the #7 a good showing."
This weekends schedule calls for the SPEED GT race to run today at 1:05pm and the Touring Car race to run on Sunday at 2:50pm. Both races will air Sunday, July 17th on SPEED with the GT race at 1:30pm the Touring Car race at 6pm. All times are EST.
