Today's Tony Hayes cup race at Road Atlanta proved to be a mixed bag of experiences and emotions. Our efforts were good but luck definitely was not on our side...
Hugo in race 1 of 2 was running in P4 but contact saw his race end at this unforgiving road course. Giannis and Frito were pushing and avoided several incidents. Frito found himself with enough damage right at the end that gave us a DQ due to not pitting after receiving a meatball flag.
Giannis was the man that found himself carrying a wounded yet running MX-5 at the end of race 2. In that race Hugo got loose while progressing through the field and in such a fast track that the train of cars behind him didn't lift and tapped him into a spin. The damage was such that it put him out with a bent rear driver's side trailing arm. During race 2 Frito attempted to avoid an incident and brushed the wall causing it to send him into the opposing wall. 39 minutes of repairs saw the effort come to an end. While our campaign this season in the THC is off to a rocky start, we will continue to pursue good finishes. We never give up...
FRITO on steam
