Race 8 - Silverstone Circuit Short Road Course
Jared Jewell qualified P1 with a 1:04.788 for the Sunday June 22nd 4:15 EST race. *Note- Mike Wille & Todd Honczarenko off this week.
As car chief and spotter for Jared our strategy was simple- starting P1 the goal was to run away from the field. Jared needed to avoid using up the tires early so we would have them later in the 24 lap run.
The plan worked perfectly for half the race as Jared pulled out to a 2+ second lead over 2nd place Loren Bateman. Jared ran consistent 1:05.0's to 1:05.3's until the set up went tight and understeer became an issue. This allowed Bateman to erase a 2 second lead with 5 laps to go. Jared had just enough to hold onto the lead and take the checkered flag over Bateman by .351 seconds.
Jared has increased his point lead over RRG driver Mike Wille and Season 1 Mustang Challenge Series Champion Patrick Bieri currently third. There are 4 races left in the season and the next race at Okayama, Japan's long circuit.
