Plenty of champions have been crowned last weekend, for example Will Power won – as in 2010 – the Mario Andretti Road Trophy for the top points producer on the 10 road/street courses and has turned things around for the IndyCar title race, too.
Chris Dyson and Guy Smith won the LMP1 drivers’ title in the American Le Mans Series, Dirk Müller and Joey Hand secured the equivalent for the GT class. Dyson Racing and BMW Team RLL each clinched the team championships respectively. And while we are at the events at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca: Young Frenchman Tristan Vautier won the title in the final round of the Star Mazda Championship.
In Mid-Ohio Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas clinched their third DP title together in four years. For Pruett it was already his fourth DP title and the fifth team championship for Chip Ganassi Racing since entering the Rolex Series in 2004. BMW also won the DP Manufacturer’s championship in a double tiebreaker with Chevrolet, based on the team’s five second place finishes. Andrew Davis and Leh Keen captured the championship in the GT class in what was Brumos Racing’s first season in GTs and its first title since 1994.
After Stefano Comini had already secured the Eurocup title in the Mégane Trophy, Dutch youngster Robin Frijns added the Eurocup title in Formula Renault 2.0 to his increasingly impressive CV. And talking about an impressive CV: Richie Stanaway added two further titles to the ADAC Formula Master title in 2010. Having already secured the rookie’s class title in the German ATS Formula 3 Cup, at Assen’s TT circuit the rising star from New-Zealand has also sealed the overall classifaction title before the series heads for its final round at Hockenheim.
Same goes for Johannes Leidinger, who took the antecipated 2011 ADAC Procar Series’ title prior to the season’s finale.
Congratulations to all 2011 champions and their teams!
