Torrent Motorsports leave GPVWC Superleague

0 General No Comments

Torrent Motorsports have withdrew from GPVWC Superleague with immediate effect citing “lack of motivation” and “loss of confidence with the direction of the series”.

Michael Theis said – “When we joined the GPVWC in 2012 the goal was to get to the Superleague. The following season a few teams left the series and we were lucky to of been chosen to get a spot. We ended up having a great first season but it ruined us in terms of finances. It took us a few seasons of running around in a car with hardly any upgrades just to earn money. Roll forward to the current season, we have a semi competitive car at the start of the year. Mindaugas Klumbis wins a race for us in Bahrain after over two years since our last win and there’s no broadcast to document this, this wasn’t the only race to not be broadcast this season. We have paying sponsors that were under the assumption their logos would be visible on broadcasts when we get ‘tv time’.

So Mindaugas has had his contract ripped up so he can move onto another team. Jordan can also find another team if he wishes to crash their cars. We wish to thank anyone that has drove for us over the years at GPVWC, too many to list but you know who you are”.

Jordan pulling off his outside pass in the final chicane

Ohio, USA – The final round of the Neo Endurance Series took place at the Nurburgring this past weekend. Due to a technical issue during qualifying, Torrent Motorsports didn’t manage to set a lap time and had to start the race from pit lane. The race started with Jordan Weekes in the car but as he left the pit lane he disengaged the pit lane speed limiter too early and we got a 15 second stop and hold penalty. Jordan came in the following lap to serve the penalty and once he left the pitlane the Torrent Ford GT was already 50 seconds behind 6th place. It took Jordan two full stints to catch up to the cars ahead. After another two stints of battling, which included a great outside pass entering the final chicane. Jordan handed the car over to Kevin in 2nd position.

Kevin got in the car and just needed to make sure the IDRK car didn’t beat us by more than one position to keep 3rd in the standings. Kevin brought the car home after 8 hours of racing in 2nd position after 3 uneventful hours and secured 3rd in the championship for Torrent Motorsports.

Kevin crossing the line to end the race and the season.

Shenanigans at Interlagos

0 Results No Comments

OHIO, USA – The 5th round of the Neo Endurance Series was held at the Brazilian circuit of Interlagos, Torrent Motorsports headed into the race sitting 3rd in the GT2 standings with a healthy lead over 4th. Qualifying went well for the TMo team as Kevin Siggy equalled the best qualifying position of the season but putting the Ford GT into 5th position. The race started and Kevin held his 5th position, in his 2nd stint he moved up to 4th and was closing on 3rd position. Jordan Weekes took over the car for his first stint but picked up a throttle issue so he only completed one of his two planned stints.Start

Kevin got back into the car and was setting personal best lap times over and over, then disaster struck. The #10 Fenix HPD car made contact with Kevin and made the TMo car hit the outside wall in turn 3 very hard, the car was towed to pit road and 20 minute of repairs was required. Torrent were now in last in class (9th), 10 laps down on the leader and 9 laps down on the next position. Kevin and Jordan circulated to get to the 4.2 hours needed to be classified to score some points but it was then decided to complete the full 6 hours after an issue to the GoT car meant that the team gained a position as the extra few points could be critical at end of the season.

The race ended and Kevin brought the car home in 8th position in the GT2 class but after post race investigations the KRT car got disqualified for a driver time infringement. This meant that Torrent moved up to be classified in 7th position.

Torrent still sit 3rd place in the standings but the gap to 4th position was halved. The next round of the season takes place on March 20 at the Italian circuit of Monza.

Neo 6hours of COTA roundup

0 Results No Comments

tmo-neo-round2Ohio, USA – The second round of the Neo Endurance Series took place at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) this past weekend. Torrent Motorsports started P9 in the GT2 class, with Jordan Weekes starting the car and Kevin Siggy partnering him this weekend.

The first two hours were uneventful for Weekes and he moved up a few positions and ended up 5th after his 2 hour stint was over. Weekes did have a scary moment when a prototype car made contact in turn 14 but other than a dent in the door the car was fine. Siggy took over the car and was putting in some really fast lap times while also saving fuel as calculations confirmed that Weekes had used up too much fuel in his stints and went 2 laps shorter than was planned before the race. After Siggy’s planned two stints he climbed up to 2nd in class, it was then decided that he would stay in the car till the end.

In Siggy’s stints he was consistently faster than the leading car but had a mountain to climb due to the lead being 50 seconds. With 10 minutes to go of the race the lead had shrunk down to under 15 seconds but the gap was just too large and Siggy brought the car home in 2nd place, just 8 seconds behind the winning car.

The result means the team jumps up to 3rd in the standings after two rounds. Round three of the season heads to Watkins Glen on 20th December.
