“The traffic was heavy and, in fairness to Klaus, I don't think he realised I was so close, but it was good racing. The Cytosport Porsche crew did a great job on strategy today and closed the championship gap a little.
“Simon did a great opening stint. The car was a bit difficult to begin with. As more rubber went down on the track the car got better and better and I was able to drive each lap like I was qualifying to close on the leader.
“We knew it would be tough to beat the Porsche here, as they are lighter than us and have more downforce, so I'm pleased we were able to attack. We put on a great show for all of our Patrón and GE guests who were all kept on the edge of their seats.
“It should be a really exciting end to the season. Next race up is Mid-Ohio, which is a circuit that will again suit the Porsche. But we are gathering more information about how our car works with the new aero kit all the time, so I'm really looking forward to continuing the championship battle there.”
