Though today isn’t a good example, we should see some closer competition in the coming rounds. There are two games today and two games tomorrow, so check back for the latest results.

U.S. vs. Ghana

As in the last match from June 23, the United States fields the ZR-1 Corvette. The 638 horsepower supercharged V8 should be able to handle anything that Ghana throws at it. It really doesn’t look like this is going to be much of a match.

Ghana fields the Kantanka Obrempon II. Bigger and heavier tan the Oprempon I, the mark II uses the same six cylinder engine. The primary strength of the Obrempon II will be blocking; the Corvette will have to lap it at some point, and the Ghanaian driver doesn’t intend to make it easy.

No surprise here, it’s a decisive victory for the American squad.

Uruguay vs. South Korea

Uruguay fields the Suntrike, the three wheeler that defeated the best Mexico could throw at it. South Korea looks to be an entirely different story, and Uruguay is not expected to duplicate their surprise victory over Mexico.

Not willing to fix something that isn’t broken, South Korea again fields the Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Track Coupe. It may not be a match for the ZR-1 Corvette, but up against a three wheeler based on a commuter motorcycle, there isn’t going to be much of a contest.

You guessed it, it’s South Korea in a decisive victory over Uruguay.

Tomorrow is Argentina vs. Mexico and Germany vs. England. Can the Porsche 911 GT2 defeat the McLaren F1? Check back to find out.
