Following their victory at the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen, Christina Nielsen and her teammate, Alessandro Balzan, finished 4th at the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, extending their lead in the GT Daytona championship.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been this happy about a position four,” Nielsen said. “We extended the points lead; that’s one of the main factors – always bring points home and stay consistent. That’s what we did today, and that’s why we extended the lead. It was a great comeback from how we started the weekend. It definitely was a challenging weekend. We knew we weren’t in the greatest position, but it was an amazing job by the team. The strategy, the execution in pit lane – everything just fell together.”
