Juan Pablo Garcia Tours the Streets of TorontoPress Release
Toronto, Ontario – July 7, 2012 - Jeffrey Mark Motorsport took their talents to The Great White North for the Honda Indy Streets of Toronto. Juan Pablo Garcia had a great car going into the 50-lap event but was only able to complete 30 laps due to contact with another car.
Coming around turn three, the number five car of Jorge Goncalvez bumped the rear of JP’s car sending them both spinning. The Jeffrey Mark Motorsport ride spun around before sending the tail end into the wall. No drivers were injured but neither car was able to finish the race.
Juan Pablo was glad to be back on the street course but not pleased with the finish.
“The race ended a lot earlier than I was expecting,” Juan Pablo commented. “I am not very happy with the race results. The car felt great and the Jeffrey Mark Motorsport crew made a lot of improvements over the weekend. I was excited to get the car out on the track this afternoon. The race started good, we were keeping up to speed with the rest of the grid, the accident just came at a really bad time. I know Edmonton will go much better.”
“The car is really good right now so hopefully we can use the positive momentum we gained this weekend and carry it over to Edmonton with us,” JP continued. “I am really looking forward to finishing the season strong so we can build up more championship points. Being Jeffrey Mark Motorsport’s first year I really want to give them a good Championship placement at the end of the Firestone Indy Lights Season.”
The Indy Lights grid will continue their Canadian journey with a race in Edmonton on Saturday July 21st.
