Craig Bennett doubles up at Detroit with second Masters Endurance Legends USA win

Craig Bennett copied his performance in the first Masters Endurance Legends USA race on Detroit’s Belle Isle circuit by storming off to a second win in his ex-Status GP Lola B12/80. In command from the start, Bennett pulled out a dominant lead over George Krass in the Corvette C5.R before deciding to coast towards the chequered flag.



In front of an expectant IndyCar crowd, Krass took his second runner-up spot and GT class victory in two days, while Bennett and Krass were joined on the podium by Brandon Kidd whose Chevrolet Dallara DP moved up from sixth to third. In the second Corvette C5.R, Kirt Bennett was fighting Kidd over third place when he was forced to retire with a broken gear linkage. This elevated Travis Engen’s Audi R8 into fourth, Engen having battled with Loren Beggs in the Porsche 996 RSR all the way.



Douglas Baron took sixth in his Porsche 991 GT3-R, ahead of Frank Moceri’s Ferrari 488 Evo Challenge, Bud Bennett in the first of the Ligier JSP3-15s, and Sebastian Coppola in the Ferrari 458 Challenge. Brad Hoyt’s Ligier was another late retirement from the race.
