Porsche Carrera Cup North America: Kay van Perlo leads the way
Van Perlo has won six of his first eight games, so at the halfway point of the season he proudly leads the Championship standings. Van Perlo won both races at the former Sebring Airport, the Long Beach Street Circuit and Watkins Glen. The Laguna Seca circuit was the only circuit that didn’t run optimally, finishing first in the second race and no higher than fourth in the third, but unlike his closest rivals, Van Perlo finished in all races. .

“Of course I’m very satisfied with the way the season has gone so far,” said Van Perlo. “All the races were good from the team, although I had a few things I could have done better. We did well in Long Beach, and that was the highlight for me so far: two pole positions and two wins. Qualifying in Laguna wasn’t great, so I went further back, but We still got some good points, so I wouldn’t put it down. That’s what I learned last year: it’s about getting points. So, even though I’m in good shape now, I’m just working from weekend to weekend.” This week Van Perlo will take on the Toronto Street Circuit, where he has never raced before. After that, Road America (August 5-7), Indianapolis (September 2-4) and Road Atlanta (September 28-October 1).
