IMSA’s WeatherTech SportsCar Championship is racing north of the border today, with the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix taking place at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park near Bowmanville, Ontario.
Last year, Colin Braun and Jon Bennett took the overall victory at CTMP for CORE Autosport. Yesterday, Braun won the provisional pole position for today’s race, breaking the track previous track record he set last year.
However, Helio Castroneves will start today’s race from the pole in the No. 7 Acura Team Penske ARX-05 after the No. 54 CORE Autosport Nissan shared by Braun and Bennett was moved to the rear of the DPi grid. The team forfeited their starting position when they elected to change tires and their starting driver to Bennett.
Live, flag-to-flag coverage of the two hour, 40-minute race begins at 1:00 p.m. ET on CNBC, with live streaming available on NBCsports.com and the NBC Sports app.
