It was going great. Until it stopped. The roof caved in when Melo in the Ferrari made contact with one of the Jaguars with two hours and 16 minutes gone. The impact was sufficient enough to damage the rear suspension and the Ferrari pulled to a stop near the start-finish line.
Best to start a review of this year’s Mosport race by taking a glance in the rearview mirror. In 2010, the Grand Prix of Mosport was held over the August 29th weekend. It was the most important race of the year for Risi Competizione as the team entered the race weekend with a very real chance at winning one more ALMS championship in the final year of the 430GT era. But-they had to do well at Mosport and then win at Petit Le Mans in order to bring home another title.
