USTCC GT Season opener of 2014: Believing the Unbelievable

April 8th, 2014

Prima Racing has never been a stranger in competing whenever the deck has been stacked against the team. The team’s results have frequently defied the odds to the point where the surprise result is almost always to be expected.

Last month, the team’s first race weekend at Thunderhill reinforced this, with driver Andrie Hartanto putting in a startlingly bold performance, passing every car in the entire SCCA field while starting from the back of the grid in the first race (despite the fact that one pass was under a yellow flag), and then surprising everyone with a devastating first-lap wreck in the second one.

Rebuilding the wrecked car was nothing short of a daunting task, as the team had less than a month to repair the front end of their badly-damaged Honda S2000 before the team’s first USTCC race last weekend at Buttonwillow. The fact that the car was intact and even running at all was a nearly unbelievable feat in and of itself. Countless long hours of work and teamwork across the entire San Francisco Bay Area made the impossible a reality.

Destination SCCA Runoffs 2014: First Race of the Season

March 11th, 2014
Coming off of a successful 2013 season in the USTCC, Prima Racing surprised many with their diminutively-powered, race-winning Honda S2000, in spite of competing in the GT Class. Always seeking new challenges, Team Principal and driver, Andrie Hartanto set his sights on an even loftier challenge; to compete in the SCCA Runoffs in the STU Class for 2014. The change in competitive landscape would not only see increased competition, but theoretically a slower car as well. A drastic reduction in tire size, wheel size, aerodynamics (including a significantly smaller wing and splitter surface area) and slightly added weight would all need to be incorporated into the makeover of the team’s S2000. Hartanto calculated that all of these changes would lead to a slower average lap time by as much as a second, if not more.  While the team planned to mitigate the reduction in performance with the addition of a sequential gearbox, the team concluded it best to compete with what they were familiar with for the first race weekend at Thunderhill Raceway Park.
