Gary Trudeau places 2nd on his USTCC return


Buttonwillow, CA – What more could you hope for on your return to the USTCC after a long absence and with a newly built car? Gary Trudeau podiums his Hyundai Genesis Coupe with a 2nd place in the Touring Car (TC) class. Teammate Rob Harper wins overall and also the Grand Touring (GT) class with Reto Baumann rounding up a great RPM team result with 2nd in Super Touring (ST). All three RPM cars on the podium!


Gary Trudeau – Post Race Statement
What a great day! I was able to drop my lap times significantly over the weekend and was upbeat for qualifying, grabbing the pole in my class. Never having done a standing start, I was a tad nervous for the race but managed to really get off the mark well. I had a great race. Just didn’t have enough in the car to reel in my competition, especially in the fast corners where I really felt the missing downforce not having an aero package on the car yet.
I am stoked about my return to USTCC and achieving a podium finish in my first race back with a brand-new car we built.
