This week’s race at Lime Rock Park wasn’t really destined to set the world on fire. Whenever I tested this combination I had a very hard time putting together any laps which were clean and/or fast. Having done fairly well at this track in the Skip Barber Series I found this very disappointing.
I was ranked 13th in a field of 15 and would be starting 9th having set a qualifying time before the race of 56.835 – well off the pace.
I got a very good start and managed to get to 6th by the end of the first lap. This was mainly due to errors by others, but I’d take it! By lap 5 I was in 5th and ran well until lap 10. I spun the car into the wall under the bridge and had pretty serious damage on the right front. I continued driving as obviously most turns at Lime Rock Park don’t put a lot of weight on that wheel… I slowly drifted back and settled into 7th by the end of the 11th lap. I stayed there until the end.
