Tony Colicchio Held off Tough Pressure in His BMW M3 to Win by 0.627 Seconds in Super Touring 3

Tony Colicchio held off tough pressure in his TC Design 1996 BMW M3 from Tristan Littlehale to win by 0.627 seconds at the 2016 NASA Western States Championships at Buttonwillow Raceway and took the win for Super Touring 3. All 10 Super Touring 3 cars managed not only to finish, but finish on the lead lap, attributable to the quality and close racing of the class.
“It was awesome,” Colicchio said. “Little mix-up with that long yellow in there… I pulled a gap from Tristan, who was in second place of ST3, and I had to build it back up toward the end. With all the wind, the track is pretty dusty. I didn’t quite know with cold tires how much grip was going to be on the track with all the dust on it. There definitely wasn’t very much.
