It is the Houston-based team’s best finish of the season and their second podium in 2011, and the entire event presented a great spectacle for the large number of Ferrari of Ontario guests watching.

All the sponsor endorsements now in—and a rather lengthy and healthy group it is, although I personally think Tequila Mixes better with Orange Juice than oil but that could be personal preference.
