Congratulations to the top finishing American, Shawn Till, who was navigating in a 1929 Chrysler driven by Oriol Vilanova.  They finished 36th Overall, which was a significant improvement from last year when they finished 48th.  It is very difficult to move up that far in the standings when you are near the front of the field.

The second highest finishing Americans were Lisman/Fink who finished in 71st Overall position in a Lagonda. I noted that they finished in 94th position last year, therefore they have moved up as well.
