Prima Racing Clinches the TC Class Season Championship in Tense USTCC Double-Header Finale

Articles Comments Off on Prima Racing Clinches the TC Class Season Championship in Tense USTCC Double-Header Finale

Coming off a strong performance in the WERC 3.5 Hour race at Sonoma, the Prima Racing team set its sights back on claiming the USTCC TC Class season championship. With races 7 and 8 being scheduled back-to-back at Thunderhill Raceway, the team needed to finish strong to capture the top spot for the season’s points.

“It’s going to be an uphill battle, but I think we can do well,” Andrie Hartanto stated. “The problem is that we’ve brought the lowest-powered car with the highest amount of rewards ballast added to a track where power makes a difference.”

While the team boasted a strong lead in the championship points, there was no guarantee that they would be successful in locking things up. If the team became disqualified or failed to finish either race, the championship would be left wide open.

Back-to-Back USTCC Race Weekends Put Prima Racing to the Test

Articles Comments Off on Back-to-Back USTCC Race Weekends Put Prima Racing to the Test

The beginning of September started off with back-to-back racing weekends, creating a high level of additional pressure for the team for a few reasons.

“For starters, we’ll be missing two team members, with the added Laguna Seca date falling on the calendar at a time when Lee-Anne and Michael (Ostby) had planned to be on vacation. Plus, while we currently lead in the points, we’ve had our fair share of mechanical issues. If we encounter anything, the hope is that it’s minor enough that it can be addressed in between race weekends,” Prima Racing Principal, Andrie Hartanto commented.

Heading into the weekend, Prima Racing held the lead in championship points, yet the margin was narrow enough that the season points championship was a fair target for nearly every team. At the same time, if any team were to suffer a DNF result, it could easily result in the end of the team’s championship run. The second Laguna Seca round also saw the debut of Prima Racing’s newest team member, Jack Nguyen.
