New Jersey Motorsport Park was the setting for round 11 of the SCCA Pro Trans-Am series, and BCR participated with one TA2 car, the #78 of Harry Steenbakkers.
With lots of practise sessions and great weather, we had the chance to truly experiment with various set-ups. We made great progress and were usually 3-5th in all the sessions. Unfortunately, qualifying did not go our way, and ended up in the 6th starting position.
Race day turned out much better. We took a penalty for new tires and started 8th, but Harry made quick work and picked up 3 positions on the first lap. In the next few laps he secured 4th, but had lost the top 3 cars at that point. He would end up running an uneventful race, a solid 4th without any challenge from behind.
