The second round of the K1 Speed Challenge GP Race series rolled into the Los Angeles K1 Speed Facility this past Sunday, with a mix of retuning faces along with a number of new drivers thrown into the group to take a shot at a podium appearance. Drivers would have double qualifying sessions to try to get on pole on Southern California’s only indoor concrete surfaced facility. In usual form current points leader Robby Stanovich set out the fast lap of the evening with a 25.045 second lap time to take the overall pole position for the A-Main later that evening.
B-Main drivers would be out on track first with Jake Hardy taking the green flag rolling start and leading the field into turn one. The group would freight train around the track for a couple of laps before spreading out and setting the pace. In what was a relatively clean race the field would all finish in their qualifying positions with Jake Hardy taking the win followed by Andre Davillae in second and Wayne Inouye rounding out the top three on the podium.
Closing out the night were the A-Main drivers, which had Robby Stanovich on pole for the green flag rolling start. He would lead the field into turn one and stay out in clean air and put some distance on himself and the rest of the field. The rest of the field would fall in line and stay in their qualifying positions throughout the race. The checkered flag would fall and Robby Stanovich would take the win, followed by Christopher Espinoza in second and Kc Cook would take third.
The half way point to the second part of the 2011 race season kicks off in September and the question on a number of drivers minds is who will catch Robby and his dominating performance on the track, as he currently is leading the points at all Southern California Challenge GP locations.
