Ian Lacy Racing and Steve Burns of VP Fuels have decided to do a partial season in the TC class of the Pirelli World Challenge race series. With only two months to build the car, a Ford Mustang V6, no testing, and Ian driving for an injured Steve burns, the team picked up two top ten finishes at the opening races at Circuit of the Americas, with another in the making when the car was taken out by a Porsche. With the car down on power, changes were made to the engine and Burns picked up a seventh place at Road America. Further development of the car and engine continue for the next race at Miller Motorsports Park at Tooele, Utah. An interesting article on the team and car can be found at the Turnology website, see www.turnology.com/features/car-features/vp-racings-v6-mustang-taking-on-the-best-in-pirelli-world-challenge/.
Ian continues to race whenever possible, scoring two recent poles and wins in Burn's Pro Mazda car in the NASA open-wheel series at MMP August 8th/9th. A video of Ian in the Mazda is available at the Ian Lacy Racing Facebook page.
