Last Saturday, the Mercedes-AMG GT4 passed two milestones in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge. In the fifth race of its debut season, the new high-performance vehicle from Affalterbach secured a maiden podium finish in the series.



Damien Faulkner (IRL) and Russell Ward (USA) steered the number 33 Winward Racing / HTP Motorsport Mercedes-AMG GT4 to third place in the two-hour race at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park.



Further evidence for the competitiveness of the Mercedes-AMG GT4 was supplied in Canada by Customer Sports team Ramsey Racing, as Alexandre Premat (FRA) claimed a maiden pole for the brand in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge.




In the race itself, however, Premat and team-mate Mark Ramsey (USA) were dropped back down the field to finish a disappointing 14th.
