With 5 stops remaining in the season, the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship rolls into picturesque Connecticut for the 2015 Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park. This stop, the only classes running are the Prototype Challenge (PC) and GT Daytona (GTD) cars.

Today’s qualifying, on this short 1.474 miles track, had it’s share of excitement. In GTD class, 0.009 seconds separate the pole sitting, No. 48 Paul Miller Racing Audi R8 LMS and the 2nd place No. 33 Riley Motorsports Dodge Viper SRT piloted by Ben Keating!!

Qualifying in PC was cut a bit short due to the No. 16 BAR1 Motorsports car spinning out and smacking into the guard rails causing a red flag. At the end of the abbreviated session, less then 1.5 seconds separate the pole sitting No. 85 JDC Miller MotorSports car and the fifth place No. 52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports car.

Despite the smaller amount of cars running, Saturday’s 2 hour 40 minute race should provide some solid entertainment!

You can catch the live stream on IMSA’s iOS/Android app or their website. The race starts at 3:15pm ET this Saturday (7/25). Or catch the re-broadcast on Fox Sports 1, starting at 5pm ET on July 26h.
