Aquilante Leads PWC Points, Mid-Ohio Next

July 28 2015

Phoenixville, PA – Andrew Aquilante and Kurt Rezzetano sit one-two in Pirelli World Challenge GTS points standings as the Phoenix American Motorsports and Calvert Dynamics squad heads for a four-car effort at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course this weekend with Preston Calvert racing both in GTS and the GT Cup classes.

While Rezzetano triumphed and took the points lead in May in Canada, Aquilante responded at Road America in June, taking his first win of the season and moving ahead of his Ford Mustang teammate in the standings. Those two will be partnered by a third trademark black and yellow Mustang for Calvert at the 2.4-mile 15-turn road course.

With one win a piece, both Aquilante’s No. 32 and Rezzetano’s No. 35 will be looking for a second first-place trophy at Mid-Ohio. While Road America offered four miles of high-speed, Mid-Ohio, also a natural terrain road course, is considerably more twisty and known for its technical challenge.

Calvert will also race in the GT Cup category in the No. 77 Porsche, where he continues to hold down fourth position in the standings.

Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada – Kurt Rezzetano scored his first career Pirelli World Challenge win and the first victory of the 2015 season in World Challenge for Phoenix American Motorsports in the Saturday GTS race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (formerly known as Mosport). Another strong performance on Sunday has Rezzetano leading the GTS point standings in his Calvert Dynamics and Phoenix Performance Ford Mustang Boss 302 entry.

Rezzetano made his move of the race early on Saturday, pouncing on an Aston Martin for the lead on the opening lap of the race, and managing the gap to take the win, also earning the Invisible Glass Clean Pass of the Race award.

“It was a really great race. It was a matter of me keeping my head down and keeping the gap. Really I was not managing anything. I was going ten-tenths the whole time to try to get away from them. All and all it was a great day,” said Rezzetano following his win.
