Ohio-USA : After a strong 3rd place at Sebring, Torrent Motorsports turned up to round 2 of the Neo Endurance Series (NES) at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) with some confidence. With the addition of new driver Marius Golombeck joining Kevin Siggy and Jordan Weekes for rest of season things are looking positive for Torrent, even after all Aston Martins were hit with a 60kg balance of performance weight penalty for However Jordan has been struggling with sickness so it was just Kevin and Marius for this round.

Kevin turned the team confidence into pole position for the TMo Aston Martin after finally finding a set up and worked for him. The race started, Kevin pulled around a 1-2 second lead on the Coanda Corvette. The 2 second gap remained for most of the stint until slightly better pace for the Torrent driver and luck with traffic extended the gap to just over 10 seconds. After another full stint of the gap remaining around 10-20 seconds depending on traffic Kevin handed the car over to Marius.

Marius had two uneventful stints where he kept the gap at around 14 seconds and handed the car back over to Kevin to finish the race with Torrent earning their maiden victory in the NES. The win puts Torrent to the top of the GT standings, 2 points ahead of the CoRe car and 4 points ahead of the SimRC car in 3rd.
