Recap: Week of July 2nd
Springfield, VA- In a week that turned on it's head every which way, Tim Silliman was able to bring out the broom and sweep.
Slick track conditions in New Hampshire combined with the low downforce package the series brought lead to a wild race in the Granite State. The race started with a crazy moment as Stephen Laarkamp had an uncharacteristic spin on the first corner that collected Taylor Dragoo and Caeton Bomersbach. Stephen was able to come away relatively unscathed while Taylor and Caeton's nights were done. Many cars made contact on the wall out of two and many of the starters would retire early. Meanwhile at the end of the night, Tim Silliman came away with a solid victory over John Ahles and Johne Martin. Will Roberts came away with fastest lap and the pole bonus, while Stephen Laarkamp came away with a larger points lead over Caeton Bomersbach.
As the tour headed south to throw-down in Georgia, Tim Silliman again looked hot. Backing up his practice speed, Tim took pole and didn't look back. The race ran caution free, allowing everyone to elect their own strategy. Some drivers took two stops while others took three but in the end, Silliman collected his fourth win on the season and sixth overall to cut Cody Wenzen's points lead down. Daytona Champion Trevor Brownlee finished second while Wenzen finished third. Silliman swept the event, notching fastest lap, pole and the most laps lead at a staggering 92.
Next week the league makes return visits to two venues. Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky will play host to it's second ever Formula World Series Event. In the summer of 2016, Alex Boffoli took victory despite a hard charge from Danny Roberts and Ken Payne late in the going. Meanwhile Grand National visits the freshly repaved Phoenix International Raceway, where on the old configuration Cody Wenzen was able to put down a stomping in the season finale last season. Lets see if he is able to do the same on the new pavement. Formula World Series will be on American Sim Network at 9:00 Eastern on Monday.
