The Celebration of Motorsport weekend got off to a great start, with some initial testing on Friday morning. #153 Rocco Marciello piloting the championship winning Triumph TR7 was able to get in some quick laps and reunite himself with the car after two years of not racing it at CTMP.
On Saturday morning RMP sponsored drivers #288 Johannes Tjiang, #1 Ali Nasirpour and #199 Daria Khachi were also ready for the weekend. They qualified in top positions in each class and were prepared to win.

The races of the weekend went well with wins in each category. Rocco in the #153 Triumph TR7 was able to get lap times down, winning two of the three races including first overall out of a 45 car field in the final race.

 

#1 Ali Nasirpour in his E36 M3 started from the back of the field due to turning a faster lap time than the GT3 Category limit in the Saturday evening race. He was able to make his way back up to the top of GT3 but an unfortunate throttle cable failure caused him to not finish the race. RMP Competizione quickly repaired his car and had him ready in time for the Sunday races. Again, Ali was able to make his way through the field by fighting some hard battles all the way up to a 2nd place finish in GT3 just behind his team mate Daria.

This was Daria’s best finish of the year winning the GT3 race.

 

 

With long days and a lot of hard work, RMP Competizione made sure to get #288 Johannes Tjiang’s E46 M3 back on the track after his incident last race weekend at Mosport. While the car was performing flawlessly, Johannes was getting his feel back for the car and was happy¬†to be on track once again turning some fast laps.
