Over the past few months, we've had our eyes glued to the The Porsche IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama—the series where Porsche fanatics get a chance to move up past the hobbyists and eventually race professional-level in the American Le Mans Series with their Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars—and after weeks of high-speed dustups, inter-family competition, and record-breaking victories, it's come to a magnificent close.
During the first weekend in October, drivers gathered at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia to clinch the gold and platinum level prizes. Henrique Cisneros—who, in the understatement of the year, said he uses the race to "blow off steam"—followed up his 2010 Gold Cup class title by seizing the 2011 Platinum Cup class championship, while 15-year old Madison Snow secured his position as a fan favorite and, more importantly, the Gold Cup class championship—making him the youngest Porsche one-make Cup champion in history. Over achiever, much?
