NJ'S GINGRAS SECOND IN WORLD DRIVING CHAMPIONSHIP
 
HIGHTSTOWN, NJ -- May 31, 2019 -- Yannick Gingras won Friday’s final race in the World Driving Championship, but it was not enough to come away with the title. Gingras, an Allentown, N.J. resident, and director on the SBOANJ board representing the U.S., finished second to the Netherland’s Rick Ebbinge in the six-round event, which was contested over the past week at racetracks across Sweden.

A total of 12 drivers participated in the WDC, with Sweden’s Ulf Ohlsson finishing third and Canada’s Doug McNair fourth. Norway’s Eirik Hoitomt completed the top five. The WDC was introduced in 1970 and is held every two years.

Gingras, a two-time Driver of the Year in the U.S. making his first WDC appearance, won three races in the series. He also had three second-place finishes and three thirds.

Drivers from the U.S. have finished in the top three at the WDC in four of the last five editions, with Marcus Miller third in 2017, Tim Tetrick third in 2015, and Corey Callahan second in 2011.

Dave Magee was the most recent U.S. representative to win the championship, in 1995.
