First #1 Podium Finish for Ferrari of Atlanta | Mark Issa

Coppa Shell. Mark Issa (Ferrari of Atlanta) made good on the pace he showed throughout the weekend with a win on Sunday leading home Dale Katechis (Miller Motorcars) and Geoff Palermo (Ferrari of San Francisco).  A dramatic start saw Danny Baker run wide at Turn 1 and then spin at turn five, sending him plummeting back towards the back of the pack.  That left Mark and Dale to build a gap over the rest of the field, something they did with relative ease.  Geoff Palermo, however, had a dramatic race, making some strong passes at some of Sebring’s tighter corners.  The high speed of the Ferrari 488 Challenge car, combined with tight corners at the end of long straights meant it was frequently the last of the late brakers that prevailed.  Ultimately, an incident in the Coppa Shell AM category brought the race to a conclusion as the field was slowed behind the safety car and took the checkered flag to end the race.
