Coming in, their stated goal was to get each vehicle to just finish each of the two weekend races. Steve Ott and the #96 GT-R had typical rookie luck on both days, crashing out on lap #1 on Saturday and retiring on lap #9 with a wheel problem on Sunday.
Tony Rivera who had an excellent 2009 World Challenge series performed well both days in his untested GT-R placing 7th and 8th on the two days.
Given that both GT-Rs were completely untested coming into the weekend and were showroom stock little more than a month ago, just being in St. Petersburg was an accomplishment. Hopefully Ott didn't do too much damage to his GT-R this weekend and they can get it prepped for the Long Beach, CA event in three weeks.
