Round 8 Recap: Streets of Willow

Sunday the 8th round of the Roadster Cup took place at Streets of Willow (Clockwise configuration). We are getting down to the wire with only one round left, and everyone is trying to shave time anywhere they can to secure the championship! With some unexpected rain in the afternoon, we were about ready to call it quits after the second session. In classic, Rosamond style, the rain passed and the track was dry by the third session. Let’s start with Enthusiast and see what everyone was able to pull off!
