CTSCC Laguna Seca – Despite Challenges, Hartanto Shines at Home Race

Articles Comments Off on CTSCC Laguna Seca – Despite Challenges, Hartanto Shines at Home Race

The first two races of the season yielded a less-than-stellar tally of points in the Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge. The pressure to perform continued to rise for Andrie Hartanto, co-driver, Tyler Cooke and their No. 81 BimmerWorld BMW 328i ST Class challenger. To date, a rather promising season had thus far been hampered by a string of unfortunate events after failing to take the grid at Daytona, then suffering a shunt from behind at Sebring eliminating a top-ten finish.

Laguna Seca was on the calendar next. Historically, it has been a track that heavily favored the Mazda Miata. “They’ve been winning this particular race ever since they participated in the series and have been doing so by a big margin. There are four of them running, so we know our best chance is to be the best of the rest,” stated Andrie Hartanto, recognizing that a fifth place finish was a lofty, yet attainable goal.

Articles Comments Off on Hartanto Guest Stars in a USTCC TC Class 350Z, Earns Podium Finish

Andrie Hartanto and the Prima Racing crew found themselves back in action in a familiar place as they participated in the USTCC’s season opening two-hour endurance race at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. A few things were different this time, as Hartanto would be lending a hand to rookie driver, Patrick Chio as they teamed up to compete in the tightly-contested TC (Touring Car) class in Chio’s Nissan 350Z.

This was the same event last year in which Hartanto and Prima Racing stunned the GT field with a modestly-powered Honda S2000, pulling out a surprise victory through consistent driving, flawless pit crew execution and a little bit of luck.

This time around, Hartanto would be playing the support role, assisting Chio in getting him up to speed at his first race, dialing in some final adjustments to the 350Z and closing out the race during the night session of the endurance event.

After failing to take the grid for the opening race of the Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge, BimmerWorld Racing driver Andrie Hartanto was eager to get behind the wheel of the No. 81 BMW 328i F30. Since the pairing of Andrie Hartanto and Tyler Cooke had walked away from the Daytona race having never turned a single race lap, it was important that the duo focus their efforts on making up for lost time and points. The second race of the season was to take place at the historic, 3.7-mile Sebring International Raceway; a track Hartanto had never driven.

“I had heard about the Optima Search for the Ultimate Street Car and the multi-event competition concept seemed rather intriguing. I’m always up for new challenges and with an event nearby at Thunderhill, I figured why not?” Andrie Hartanto said with a giant smile and a shrug of his shoulders.  “When I mentioned to a few of my sponsors, Performance Technic, Supertech, QuickJack and BimmerWorld that I was interested in competing with my daily driver M3, they were very supportive, which made entering the event a no-brainer.”
