ITC Season Ends On A High Note

2012 turned out to be a great racing season for Isringhausen Motorsports in the Intercontinental Trophy Cup (ITC) Porsche Cayman racing series. Isringhausen finished the season with wins at the Road America races in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, taking the drivers championship for the premiere P1 class and the overall team championship. Everyone was pleased how the season concluded.

A competitor was in the lead for the team championship coming into the final race weekend at Road America, but Isringhausen took the coveted team championship by winning both the P1 and P2 classes. Isringhausen driver, “Speedy” Dan Clarke had secured the P1 drivers’ championship at the previous round at Mid-Ohio. However, his participation in the final round was critical for team points. His first place finish in both races in the P1 class narrowed the competitor’s lead, then, in the first race of his career, rookie driver Geoffrey Isringhausen, Jr. had to keep season P2 champion Scott Leder from winning either of the two races of the weekend. It was Geoffrey’s first race of his career, but by no means his first laps at Road America. His practice days at this facility gave him an advantage over Scott, who had very limited time here prior.

Isringhausen Motorsports is very proud of the results of the last races of the season and will move the ITC trophy to their Springfield, Illinois facility. Driver Dan Clarke is from Indianapolis, Indiana and drove the Isringhausen GT 09 Cayman S car and achieved 180 points coming in 1st position. Geoff Isringhausen, Jr. from Springfield Illinois, also drove the Isringhausen GT 09 Cayman S car and earned 77 points. Team owner Geoff Isringhausen Sr. also helped secure the points needed at Road America for the team win. Other team members include Jimmy Cardoni, Tom Bennett and other Isringhausen employees.
