ABRS Grad Kyle Stevens, who took part in the Thunderhill Two Day Formula Car program May 11, 12 got off to a strong start to his season this past weekend.
Kyle started Heat 1 in 7th finishing in P1. Heat 2 he started 2nd and finished P1 again. For the final 50 lap main had him starting in P1. He led from the start and dominated the track with an impressive drive that was concise, and only giving up the lead for 2 laps during the race. After a couple of cautions during the race he continued to drive away from the field with a clear edge over the strong top 8 competitors.
The race ended on a green, white checkered finish after a very late race caution, corner one had become an oil slick under the caution and he pushed up the track on the 1st and 2nd restarts causing him to lose 2 positions. He finished off the night in 3rd .
A tough break but a good lesson was learned about recognizing the changing track conditions and a change of line after the first restart would have changed the outcome. It is a long season ahead and he is now focusing on the Championship.
Congratulations on a great drive Kyle! Read more on Kyle by visiting our testimonials section.
