Monterey, CA (September 7) – Brandon Davis put the No. 7 TRG-AMR Aston Martin North America Vantage GT4 on the pole for Sunday’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca turning a 1:36.362 lap, better than his next challenger by a full .15 seconds.  Davis, who won in the GT4 two weeks ago at the Pirelli World Challenge race at Sonoma Raceway laid his lap down his third full time around the track.

“The Continental tires seemed to be best on the third lap, and I was fortunate to get a good one,” said Davis, who lives in Napa Valley.  “The crew did a great job preparing the car especially considering that we have not had a lot of track time this year.   I owe a lot to the TRG guys who put the car in this good a position for the race.”

In Grand-Am Rolex qualifying, Davis qualified the No. 66 Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 10th in GT class.  Davis and Aston Martin factory driver Darren Turner will share driving duties in both races tomorrow.

The Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge green flag is 10:00 a.m. PDT followed by the Grand-Am Rolex race at 2:00 p.m. PDT.  The Rolex race airs live on Fox1.
