SRE at Road America
July 19, 2015 - SRE drivers Larry Huang and Jose Cortes took on the 4 mile Road America Circuit this past weekend at the HAWK with Brian Redman historic races. Larry competed in both group 9 in his LS3 Chevy powered Oreca FLM09 as well as in group 5 in the Cosworth BDG powered Lola T-212 while Jose drove the Caterham SP300/R in group 9 as well. The 4 day event meant there was lots of
track time. The weekend proved to be successful in that considerable progress was made in both chassis set-up and driver familiarization. The Oreca ran strong and consistent all weekend and laptimes steadily dropped. Continued development on the Lola T-212 resulted in huge gains
in lap times for Larry who is really starting to enjoy this car. A trackside camshaft change on Friday morning performed by Ted Wenz saved the weekend for the Lola! Jose Cortes continues to impress us with his steady approach and on-track consistency. Again on a new circuit he never put a wheel wrong all weekend. Great effort by both SRE drivers Larry and Jose and a good solid support effort by Wayne, Henry and Bobby with Ted Wenz at the helm.
The next outing for the SRE team will be the HSR Atlanta Fall Historics held at Road America in September.
