Another Redline Time Attack scorcher in the books. With temps in the high 90s track grip was very low but this didn’t slow down the action very much.
We scrambled to get an engine together for this event after suffering an ARP rod bolt failure which trashed our block and bent valves in our head at the GRM UTTC.
With the motor back in the car late Friday we headed off to South Carolina on Saturday for our 10 hour journey. Missing all of Saturday practice and then having to take it easy in practice session one to break in our engine definitely hurt my ability to learn this tricky track.
Carolina Motorsports has a mix of very high speed “kinks” but also a mix of extremely slow and sharp curves.
