    (Just got home from cycling so I’m behind.)

    Yep. That’s been consistent for the team so far.

    From Victor’s FB post:

    What a weekend and what an experience!!! Crazy how much we improved and the speed we had during the race!! I made a mistake in my stint but the Juncos boys did an incredible work and @wowen23 saved our result!! P8 but in the pace and fighting!! I’m still not sure what’s next but I’m really happy. Thank you very much @juncosracing to help me and again be part of the best moments in my career, I’m extremely grateful for this team!!
    Victor lost overpowered it out of one corner and got sideways. The damage to the driver’s side rear was minimal but they were still running hard at the end. It’s amazing to me how much faster the DPi class is compared to GTD.

    Maybe he'll get a few more rides, and we can catch him in Laguna in September

    He was in in a CadillacDPI at mosport today. Finished well back. Don't know if the car had some issues.

    edited to add: he wrecked the car, badly.

    Yep. Thank goodness he’s ok!

    Edit: The car didn’t appear to look too bad after it was extracted but subsequent pictures are pretty bad. <sigh>

    Any offers coming in, or did his last outing at Mosport put a halt to his career path?

    I'm not aware of any updates. I've reached out to his dad and will update this post when I hear from him.

    From Fabio, his dad:

    The left rear suspension broke and then the car push to the right. He saw on the video. Now he’s working with Juncos to help them to pay part of the costs but was not his fault. Drive again I think only if some sponsor appears. He’s here in Brazil this weekend.
    If you guys know any multimillionaires who wants to get into racing by sponsoring a team, let me know!

    Well, Victor got married this past weekend. I'm sure that can't be good for living in the US chasing a driver's dream. She is a beautiful, young, Brazilian so he's got that going for him. lol
