The season with Formula Car Challenge so far has been for the most part a successful one. It's been a season of strong finishes and no incidents, what more could you ask for!? Unfortunately for me, some of my competitors have been having stronger finishes and no incidents! As the points sit now, TJ Fischer is sitting first in points, followed by Mel Kemper, and then me in a comfortable third spot. For the time being, we're all pretty strong in our current championship standings, but you can never know until the season is over when it comes to auto racing!
Our next race is little more than just a couple weeks away, and it is our big one of the year. We will once again be returning to Sonoma Raceway with IndyCar to race as part of the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma, also our national championship event for the Formula Mazda class. This race always reaches the entry cap of 35 cars, providing us drivers and the thousands of fans a close and exciting race.
As you can see in the picture, we've been gearing up and basically rebuilding my car to get ready for this event. On the list are: busted motor mounts, stuck throttle cable, gearbox rebuild, and a safety compliance issue with my fuel cell. Fun stuff to work on with only days left to go! Though I figure it's for the best that my motor does not detach from the car during a race, but hey that could just be me.
Unfortunately, I have limited time to write, so I'll have to provide some updates in the near future. As for now, things are still coming together on the car, video blogs are still being made, and I'll see you all at Sonoma!
