Jacksonville, FL – September 22, 2014 – Mark Sandridge (3.8L) and Robert Schneider (3.4L) captured The Stuttgart Cup/Mission Foods GT3 Cup Trophy class wins at the Mid-Ohio Historics on Saturday, September 20, 2014.
Mark Sandridge started from pole position and clinched The Stuttgart Cup victory in his red and white “Grandma’s Original Recipe” No. 49 Porsche Cayman S in the 3.8L class.
Robert Schneider claimed top honors in the 3.4L class driving his No. 40 Martini Porsche followed by second-place finisher Rodrigo Sales and third-place point leader Bill Riddell.
Prior to Saturday’s race Sales and his Jagermeister Porsche Cayman S sat in a close second-place behind overall point-leader Bill Riddell in the AM/AM division. Solid performances from Sales this weekend could shake up the point standings for Riddell.
The endurance race featured a great battle for the lead between Robert Schneider and Rodrigo Sales who swapped positions multiple times throughout the race. The pit stop strategy of Schneider edged his No. 40 Martini Porsche ahead of Sales during the final laps and Schneider took the checkered in first-place with Sales closely behind. Bill Riddell picked up another podium finish in third-place.
The next stop on The Stuttgart Cup/Mission Foods GT3 Cup Trophy calendar is The Savannah Speed Classic at The Grand Prize Circuit at Hutchinson Island, Savannah Georgia.
