K1 Speed Irvine Super Track GP
18 February 2010
February 7th, K1 Speed Irvine hosted their second reverse Super Track GP race for the year. With both track layouts combined to create a challenging course, and the addition of running in the opposite direction for the first part of 2010, competitors have to remained focused, in order to stay on top of their game. A large number of participants competed closely for the number one qualifying position in the A Main, which was taken by known GP Participant Toby Rodriguez with a time of 44.90 seconds. He was followed closely in second by another GP regular John Tanaka, with a qualifying time of 45.00, and Khalifa Alasiri qualified in third with a time of 45.13. The 8 lap battle had all of the drivers exchanging positions back and forth, and when the checkered flag dropped, Khalifa was able to take the win followed by Toby, with John rounding out the top 3.
The B Main had just as much action with the top 3 qualifiers keeping within one-half second of each other. Jonathan Wright, took the pole position with a time of 45.95 seconds, followed by Steven Bordaux with a time of 46.00, Jason Bordeaux took the third spot with a time of 46.43. When the green flag dropped, Jonathan was able to stay focused for all 8 laps and take the win with Steven and Jason finishing out the race in the same positions they qualified in, respectfully in 2nd and 3rd.
The C Main kept the racing action close with Ed Schroeder setting the pace with a pole position qualifying time of 47.43 seconds. Samanthan Knaub took the second qualifying spot with a time of 47.51, and Eric Westlund was just three-tenths back qualifying with a time of 47.85. With all three drivers qualifying within less than half a second of each other this was going to be a tight race. Ed stayed ahead of the game, stayed focused and took the win. Eric was able to drive around Samantha to finish second and Samantha held on to finish in third.
