Late last year, Tristan Herbert finished 11th in his debut World-Challenge race. Over the weekend he took the Brimtek Motorsports VW GTI to a first ever win in the WC. With a lot of movement throughout the race, Tristan was able to take his 3rd place start to a win over Lawson Aschenbach by almost a second. Gallery after the jump!
At the start, our bud Chip Herr and Herbert quickly overtook Aschenbach, with Tristan moving past Herr by the third lap.
With a caution out, the Brimtek Motorsport team made a costly mistake, went around the pace car and made a full lap up on their competitors. The class was not given the order to move around the pace car.
Officials called Herbert into pits and let him back out after Chip Herr went by.
At first this looked bad but Herbert quickly reeled in Herr by lap 22 and went by. Aschenbach was not done yet, as he was on the move but would end up 2nd, 0.737 off the VW GTI. Herr ended up 13th overall after issues hit the Mazda RX-8.
Patrick Seguin 3rd, Devin Cates 4th in his Cutaway Creations/Cates Engineering Volkswagen GTI and 5th went to Ray Mason.
