Lakeville, CT (09.27.12): Coming off of their strongest run of the 2012 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge season, the Mitchum Motorsports/Destiny Deep Sea Water #63 BMW head to Lime Rock Park for the final round of the series.  Johnny Kanavas and Byron Payne came from as far as 31st to finish 10th at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Round-9 of the series .  The team now heads to Lakeville, CT for the GRAND-AM Championship Weekend at Lime Rock Park and the final round of the CTSCC, September 28.

Joining Kanavas will be joined by new teammate Michael Johnson.  Johnson joins the Mitchum Motorsports team for the first time, bringing many years of both international and domestic racing at all levels to the table.

“Our top-10 felt like a podium finish for our team at Laguna Seca.  We have worked very hard this year and had to overcome quite a bit of adversity  with the development of our little BMW.  We now have a good car and are looking to carry the momentum from MRLS into Lime Rock.” Commented Kanavas.
