An action packed VIR served up controversy a plenty

The Sports Prototype Cup North America, in association with the Prototype Sprint Series Association (PSSA), has featured a thrilling combination of Prototype race cars driven by both gentlemen drivers and emerging talents. This blend has given rise to closely-contested and respectful racing, fostering a camaraderie among drivers in the paddock that many other series envy. As a result, the racing conducted to date has adhered to the highest standards of sportsmanship, establishing a fun and safe environment for Prototype racers.


Throughout the year, Certified Revolution Dealer teams and privateers have been steadfast supporters of the series, contributing to the expansion of the Prototype grid. This has provided motorsports fans with a series where you can witness a diverse range of vehicles, from LMP3s to NP01s, competing on a robust grid of over 25 cars. The backing from these privateers and dealer teams has solidified PSSA's reputation as the premier destination for Prototype enthusiasts.


All that being said, the series this weekend had its own share of controversy and suspense since the official results have not yet been released. This delay is attributed to a team entering four cars on a soft compound tire seemingly not authorised by the regulations. This turn of events was a little disheartening for the series regulars who have been instrumental in shaping PSSA into the outstanding series it has become today.


On a brighter note, there were several notable achievements for the Revolution drivers during the weekend:

  • The emerging young talent, Palmer Miller, maintained his excellent form by securing pole position and two second-place finishes in PS1 class.

  • In the second race, Judd Miller displayed remarkable prowess, climbing an impressive 17 positions on the first lap en route to a third-place class finish in PS1, ultimately gaining 22 positions.

  • Zac Moseley looked odds-on for a class win in the Enduro until a late puncture curtailed his efforts.

  • Marc Russell and Marco Cencetti secured a third-place finish in the PS1 Enduro event. Notably, Marco also clinched the fastest lap in the PS1 class for the entire weekend with a time of 1:46:064, surpassing the PS1 class competition by 1.5 seconds.

The series now heads to Spring Mountain in late October followed by COTA hosting the final race of the inaugural PSSA championship in November.
