With a measured and controlled run to third place at Road Atlanta's series finale, David Hoch, ("LMR Harmonic"), clinched the inaugural CJ Wilson Racing Cayman Cup Presented by Logitech G.

His four total victories was the most by any competitor in the Championship run by The Online Racing Association (TORA) for the Forza Motorsport 6 platform. Hoch wins a full race set up from the Series presenting sponsor, Logitech.

Marc Miller spent many of his formative years in competing North of the border in Canada. He has raced numerous times at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park or Mosport as it was when he first came here.
