Highcroft takes stunning win at Laguna

“I don't know if there is a secret,” said team owner Tucker. “I have great co-drivers and a great team. Our manager has a great mind and these guys make it easy for me. They do a great job behind the scenes.”

Black Swan Racing won its first Series race with brothers Jeroen and Sebastiaan Bleekemolen partnering with team owner Tim Pappas for a GT Challenge victory. The entry led all six hours and ended up a lap ahead of TRG's Porsche of Andy Lally, Rene Villeneuve and Henri Richard.

“We had a great start in Long Beach but some things went wrong; today it went really right,” said Jeroen Bleekemolen, who won the class pole and set the class' fastest race lap. “It's great to get the win and hopefully move up in the championship.”

BSR made its 2010 debut at Long Beach but ran into trouble early in the race. It was the first outing for the team since the 2008 season when it ran a Ford GT in the GT2 class. Team owner Pappas couldn't imagine much of a better start to the season.

“This is pretty cool. We came out for Long Beach without much preparation,” he said. “We had a difficult, frustrating race. We went home and worked hard and practiced. All the guys at Black Swan are great. The Bleekemolen brothers come over and it was a great race. We didn't put a tyre off and made zero mistakes in the pits so that turned out to a race win.”
