Inishowen Porsche driver Damien Faulkner is eyeing a podium finish in Michigan this weekend at the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.

The 100 minute race starts at 5.30pm Irish-time this Saturday with live coverage of the race on Motors Sports TV UK (Sky 447).

“This race takes place on Belle Island and is a street circuit,” Faulkner explained. “I really like the street circuit challenge. Usually these tracks are bumpier than a normal road course, requiring a lot of car set-up prep and gusto from drivers.

“But GB Autosport have come alive now and we are aiming to be at the front.”

Practice and qualifiers for the Classic run on Friday 30th May and warm-up begins at 8am EDT on the Saturday.
