At the Grand Prix F1 Montreal
Exclusive Autosport (EA), the Canadian Spectrum Race Cars factory team, owned by Exclusive Management Inc., qualified all four of their Spectrum Honda’s in the top eight during today’s Formula Tour 1600 qualifying session at the Grand Prix F1 Montreal with Thomas McGregor, in the #93 EM Inc., / Dairy Queen Spectrum Honda, starting the race from the coveted Pole position.
Jack Mitchell Jr., in the #90 EM Inc. / Exclusive Autosport Spectrum Honda will start in P3. Max Hanratty (#91 SynerComm Inc. / Exclusive Autosport Spectrum Honda) qualified in 6th position and Tristan DeGrand, in the #92 Pro Am Golf USA / Exclusive Autosport Spectrum Honda will start in P8.
Thirty-six drivers make up this year’s grid. Twenty in the PRO class and 16 in the Master’s division. This is the first time Honda has been on Pole at the Grand Prix F1 Montreal.
The driver’s had one opportunity to walk the 4.361 km, 13 turn road course Thursday afternoon prior to today’s qualifying session. Without an official practice, the drivers had to adapt and learn the track very quickly. Mitchell Jr., and McGregor have both competed and finished in the top ten in this event in years past. Their experience and knowledge were an asset to their teammates Tristan DeGrand and Max Hanratty – both rookies to the Grand Prix F1 Montreal.
Saturday’s race is scheduled to run at 2:30 pm EST, immediately following F1 qualifying.
Sunday’s race will run at 9:45 am. Starting position for Sunday’s race will be determined by driver’s fast lap during Saturday’s race.
