Honigl TQ's and wins Expert World GT in Cleveland

Calandra Racing Concepts drivers Hupo Honigl and Aaron Buran finished 1-2 at the 30th Annual U.S. Indoor Championship in Cleveland, Ohio. Both drivers used the CRC Gen-X 10 car to take a convincing win in the hotly contested World GT division. From pole position, Hupo led every lap and was not pressured until very late in the run when a charging Buran really started to close in. Buran worked through traffic and found himself hot on the heels of the T.Q. driver Honigl by the end of the race.
