TC America – This week Celso Neto is looking for the highest spot on the podium in Wisconsin

Celso Neto is looking to add to his podium streak this weekend and is getting closer to his first win. We are talking about the bold and courageous Celso Neto, the Brazilian, who has been very competitive in the TC category this season in the TC America Championship (Powered by Skip Barber).

After almost a month long break since the last round, the competition will now be again in the 14 curves and 4 mile layout of the Road America circuit, located in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, United States. It will be the fifth race weekend, of seven scheduled for this year.

There are a total of 28 drivers in the field and Celso Neto has stood out for his constant presence on the podium and 2nd place in the championship standings.

Road America is surrounded by camping within the sprawling facility, including walking and bike trails, car parks, and a go-kart track along the home stretch.

The weekend festivities kick off with the annual GT parade and welcome party on Thursday night. Series race cars will make the journey from Road America to downtown Elkhart Lake at 5pm for a show on the city streets.

Celso Neto drives Skip Barber Racing School’s car 7, a Honda Civic Type-R. The Orlando based driver had a great race in the previous round and will be looking for a very strong performance again.

The first free practice will be on Friday the 18th of August 2023. Watch the race live stream on the GT World YouTube channel.
