John Tanaka was able to maintain his position as Points Leader of the Carlsbad Challenge GP series this past weekend, and with only two rounds remaining, is in very good shape to walk away with the championship. Not only did John lead the entire race and walk away with a decisive victory, but he also set a new track record for our reverse course layout in the process, with a blistering lap time of 29.02 seconds. Having made a name for himself, John is now doing a very fine job of defending it!
Bill Groves and Curt Chapin battled it out for the second place position, with Bill eventually finishing the race in 2nd, ahead of Curt. Despite not being able to finish in 2nd, Curt Chapin (returning for the second time this season after a long absence from Challenge GP competition) was able to move up one position from 4th to finish on the podium. Paul Ciralli unfortunately did not make the podium, finishing 4th place after a hard-fought battle. The racing action was intense, as usual, and it was great seeing familiar faces. Stay tuned for results from Round 5 of the Carlsbad Challenge GP series, scheduled for May 3rd!
