Robert Wickens knew he would race again, and believed he would win again. This year, he’s competed in the No. 33 Hyundai Elantra TCR car fellow Canadian Mark Wilkins in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Race. They earned a podium at Faytona earlier this year, but on the weekend, the Canadians won their class at the Tioga Downs Casino Resort 120 on Saturday, their first victory for Bryan Herta Autosport.
Back where we belong… VICTORY LANE!
Unbelievable day. We’ve known we were capable of this from the start and it feels incredible to finally put it all together. This was my first time racing at the Glen and what a place. Mega work by Mark Wilkins to keep us out front in the final laps.
Thank you to Bryan Herta Autosport and Hyundai for a fast race car!
As I said in Daytona, this isn’t the finish line. We’ll keep pushing. We want more!No. 33, Robert Wickens
