Elivan Goulart, four time SCCA Runoff’s Champion and 2016 Pirelli World Challenge TCA Champion, will double down in the #70 Lotus Exige at Lime Rock Park and enter the Touring Car class Championship with KRÜGSPEED Racing/Caneel Group. Elivan, a Connecticut based driver will also handle his normal TCA duties, with S.A.C. Racing.
This season Goulart is currently running second in a tightly contested battle for the TCA Championship. Coming off of two second place finishes at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park he will be driving alongside KRÜGSPEED Racing’s beloved driver Dennis Hanratty Jr. who was last year’s pole-sitter. Both drivers have had success at Lime Rock Park and look to post similar results this weekend.
This will not be the first time that Goulart and KRÜGSPEED Racing have teamed up; in 2013 Goulart and KRÜGSPEED brought home the 2013 Runoff’s Championship at Road America. In a wet race Goulart was able to capture the STU title in a Lotus Exige. The team is excited to have Goulart along for the weekend and hope that they post good results on the last weekend of the east coast swing.
The team would like to express gratitude to their sponsors: Caneel Group, Lotus Motorsports North America, Lotus Ltd., SCDA1.com, and Tele Vue.com, BOE, Gator Motorsports, WINMAX Brakes, and Vincent’s.
