Montecalvo Ready to Take On Northeast Grand Prix

Thursday, July 14, 2022 – Highlands, NJ – Vasser Sullivan driver Frankie Montecalvo is ready to take on the Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park. Montecalvo and co-driver Aaron Telitz are in search of victory at the GT-only event.
The 1.474-mile track is the shortest circuit on the IMSA calendar, but it always delivers plenty of action. With a field of fifteen GTDaytona cars navigating the track at close to fifty seconds, the ninth round of the IMSA WeatherTech championship will undoubtedly be action packed as each of the teams and drivers race for an overall win.
“I’m looking forward to getting back to the track this weekend at Lime Rock Park. We qualified fourth there last year, and our sister car finished on the podium, so we know the Lexus performs well at this track,” said Montecalvo. 
“Last year, the race was cut short due to inclement weather, so I’m hopeful that won’t happen again this year. However, the forecast is calling for hot temperatures and a fifty percent chance of rain on Friday and Saturday, so we’ll be ready for anything.”
“The team has worked so hard over the course of the season to continually make improvements to the cars, so I know that our No. 12 Lexus RC F GT3 will be even better at this circuit than ever before.” 
“The Lime Rock weekend is always so much fun. It’s an easy drive from my home in New Jersey, and there are always so many fans who come out to this event. It’s going to be a short, but action-packed weekend, and I can’t wait to go to battle in the Bull Ring. We had a disappointing end to our weekend in Canada, so Aaron and I will be pushing as hard as ever for a victory this weekend.”
On track action for the Northeast Grand Prix begins Friday, July 15, and continues through Saturday.
