Stevan still leads the way after setback
Rutherglen racer Stevan McAleer has retained his lead at the top of the IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge despite a disappointing result last weekend.
The former Stonelaw High pupil, who has lived in America for the past eight years, could only come 18th overall and eighth in his Street Tuner class at the Road America Track in Wisconsin.
Stevan and his team-mate Chad McCumbee had entered the race with a four-point lead at the top of the standings.
But although the duo are still leading the pack, they’re now just two clear of second-placed Andrew Carbonell and Liam Dwyer with three races to go.
They’d started the race in pole position, after qualifying had to be cancelled due to bad weather.
His next race will be at the Virginia International Raceway on August 21 and 22.
Speaking to the Reformer recently, Stevan expressed his hopes that he could go on to claim the title, a prize that has previously escaped him.
He said:“This year we have been better as a team overall, so yes, I think we can take this.”
