MADISON, Wis. — Numbers are essential in the daily life of any race team. Tire pressures. Gear ratios. Times. Speeds. So many more. Powerhouse sports car team Kelly Moss ended the 2015 season with some impressive numbers to add to the usual digits.
The team, based in Madison, Wisconsin, competed in 34 races for two different series in 14 different locations in North America over the span of 205 days, with more than 20,000 miles traveled.
That translated into 61 podium finishes with 23 class wins, 21 pole positions, 15 fastest laps, a driver and team championship, eight top-five driver finishes in respective championships, and two second-place finishes and a third-place finish in driver championships.
The 2015 season was highlighted with a second consecutive championship run by Kelly Moss young driver Colin Thompson, this season in the Pirelli World Challenge Championship GT Cup.
In two years with the team, he has amassed an impressive 17 wins, two driver championships and helped lead Kelly Moss to two team championships. Thompson won the Platinum Cup Driver Championship and Kelly Moss the Team Championship in the 2014 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama.
Kelly Moss continues to develop the skill of Thompson on and off the track, leading to multiple opportunities for the driver, including a ride with Flying Lizard Motorsports in the 18th annual Petit Le Mans in early October at Road Atlanta and a Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup berth in October during the United States Grand Prix Formula One event weekend.
