In the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada, Orey Fidani got off to a strong start in his first weekend driving a new Platinum class car, sitting in the top-five for most of the first half of the session. Unfortunately, he spun while entering turn one, which ended his qualifying run, putting him back to eighth on the grid for tomorrow’s race. Orey showed strong pace today and we’re looking forward to his progress tomorrow!
