Almost Everything-sponsored Lloyd Read expanded his lead in the SFR Formula Championship by placing 2nd in Round 5 and 2nd again in Round 6 of the series. That puts Read 4 points ahead of Jerry Kroll and 8 points in front of John Yeatman in the run for the championship.
Read said, "Laguna Seca this weekend went well. I qualified 2nd in the first race and was leading into turn 2 but then got passed in turn 4. I was then battling for 2nd when I had a gearbox issue and another car got around me. So I knuckled down and re-passed him 2 laps later and drove on to the end of the race."
"The second race I qualified 2nd again but was only .01 off the pole time! So close! The race started and I was 2nd for 5 laps until we had a safety car. On the restart we changed positions 3 times in one straightaway dogging around slower cars. I was now forth coming out of turn 2 and was pissed. So I made a move into turn 3 and took 3rd back. Then 1 lap later I pressured the guy in 2nd into making a mistake and he spun in turn 10. I drove to the checkered flag in 2nd."
"Next race for me is Portland , Oregon in 2 weeks in the Formula Car Challenge."
Great racing, Lloyd. Good luck in Portland.
