The first GP of the new season picked up right where last season left off. Ignacio Martinez continued his unbeaten streak and looked as impressive as ever. He failed to grab the pole position in the quals but that did not stop him from capitalizing on a early mash up in the MAIN EVENT to blow away the field once again. Last season’s most improved racer, Dale Daugherty, ran a very fast and clean race which resulted in his best finish in a GP to date…2nd place. There was a battle for 3rd place between three different racers right up to the final lap. Adam Fujawa held on and took home the 3rd place hardware. The remainder of the season will be race in reverse direction. Is there anyone out there that can beat Ignacio Martinez?!?
The B FINAL was filled with new comers from top to bottom. That did not mean there was any shortage of quality racing. Dylan Lee bested a good field to take home 1st place. Ryan Keys ran a solid race to take home 2nd. On his very first visit to any K1 Speed, Timothy Bolding finished in 3rd place and made a statement for GP’s to come. Remember, it is a long season and this was only the first event of the season. We will see you the first Sunday of every month going forward!
