Round 4 Recap: Streets of Willow

Saturday, May 26 was round 4 of Roadster Cup at Streets of Willow. We were running CCW, and the weather was perfect, not too hot, not too cold. There was a decent spread of drivers in each class with a total of 30 drivers for the event with a mix of new and familiar faces. Let’s dive(bomb) into the results!

Enthusiast

We were missing a few of our E class drivers this event, so it made for a fresh podium! Piloting his googly-eyed NA, Lehrick Leung pulled off 3rd place with a 1:35.507. Clay Phillips set his fastest lap during the last session of the day and pushed his way into 2nd place with a 1:34.943. Despite only running one session due to mechanical issues, Brandon Morris pulled off 1st place with a 1:30.294.

Championship Update

There are no major changes in the championship standings. Brandon remains in 1st place with 93 points, Andrew Russ in 2nd with 58 points, and Arik Crowe in 3rd place with 48 points. Clay’s podium this round pulled him into 4th place with 42 points, so be careful Arik, he’s coming for you!

Street

The Street Class battle never disappoints and these guys just keep getting faster! Colin Bowman pulled of 3rd place by 4-tenths by running a 1:29.492. Piloting his ND, Zee Reid, a.k.a Chocolate Thunder, a.k.a Zee Smooth, managed 2nd with a 1:28.173. No one in Street could catch Erik Brenner, though. He took the victory with a 1:27.814.
