Montecalvo Ready to Race North of the Border at CTMP

Thursday, June 30, 2022 – Highlands, NJ – Vasser Sullivan driver Frankie Montecalvo is ready to head north of the border to Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (CTMP) for the first time since 2019. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian round has been cancelled for the last two years. 
Montecalvo is looking forward to returning to the track where he scored his first IMSA podium in 2010. The event marks the eighth round of the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship, and Montecalvo and co-driver Aaron Telitz are ready to get back behind the wheel of the No. 12 Lexus RCF GT3 at the iconic circuit.
 “I am very excited to get back to Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. It’s my favorite track in North America and always has been. It’s a high-speed circuit which makes it a lot of fun for the drivers, but it should also suit our Lexus well,” said Montecalvo.
“CTMP is a track that was carved into the land, so there is a ton of elevation change, and it feels a lot like a rollercoaster. It’s a high commitment circuit that rewards you when you get the lap right, but an off here can mean a late night for the team as there’s not a lot of run-off, so it’s imperative to hit your marks every time.”
“I must thank all the guys and gals from Vasser Sullivan and Lexus Racing for getting our car prepped and ready in such a short period of time after Watkins Glen. With less than a week between the Watkins Glen race and our first practice in Canada, the team was not able to go home, but instead stayed in Watkins to prep our car. I have to say a huge thank you to all the crew. I know we’re going to roll off the truck in great condition on Friday.”
“The last time we were at CTMP, we finished third, and we’re hoping to secure another podium finish there this weekend. The Canadian fans are so passionate and have been waiting for us to be back for three years, so we’re definitely going to put on a show for them on Sunday.”
On track action for Montecalvo begins Friday, July 1, and continues through the weekend. The green flag flies for the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday, July 3 at 3:05 PM EST. You can watch the race live in its entirety on NBC Network, with coverage beginning at 3:00 PM EST.
