Kelly Wittenauer has kindly provided this update on this seasons early races in her Unipower Competition GT.
Last weekend's outing was at Blackhawk Farms Raceway, IL. I qualified about 2.5 seconds a lap quicker than last year, but that still had me staring about 2/3 of the way back on the grid. Started 18th in Friday's 45 minute enduro and completed the full race length, finishing 11th of 26 cars overall & 2nd of 6 in my class.
Saturday's events included a sprint race, in which I started & finished 20th of 32 cars overall, as well as a heat race, where I started 19th & finished 16th of 28 overall. Placed 6th of 12 in my class in both the sprint & heat.
Started 13th in Sunday's feature race, finishing 11th of 26 overall & 3rd of 9 in my class. Was pleased to finish on the lead lap in all but the enduro. Unfortunately, Sunday afternoon's handicap scramble didn't go as well. The throttle hung & I had to drop out on lap 10 of 15. leaving me in last place.
Thanks to Kelly for her updates and for continuing to fly the flag for the Unipower GT over in the USA
