Congratulations Series 11 Podiums!

Series 11Over four months and 35 total races split between five classes, Series 11 witnessed tight battles for the top in Challenge and Club classes. Meanwhile, the growing Sport Class was dominated by Derek Derksen, and Chris Paiz taught more than a few lessons to the competition in Pro. Among the winners, two came from the Upper Canada Region, two from the Lone Star Region, one from the Redwood Region, and one from the Orange Coast Region. Altogether, 243 drivers wielded their 992 Porsche 911 GT3R across seven venues and various weather conditions. Meet the winners below, and we’ll see you again for Series 12 in September!
