It was a scorching hot weekend in Pittsburgh for round 3 of the Gearup F Series. All 3 GGR drivers showed tremendous speed and improvement throughout the weekend on the new slick surface. As the temperatures increased in the air, the track quickly obtained a worse sunburn than the people. After two rounds of racing, track officials, and F Series crew decided to cancel the remaining races due to the track picking up and condition deteriorating from the new surface. Only the first 2 races were scored.
In the highly competitive Formula 355 class, team owner Greg Gleisner #74 qualified 10th and made his way near the front of the pack in the first race. Following closely behind him was #75 Alex Salsbury who qualified 11th and also had great battles on track. In race 2 both Greg and Alex made their way to the front of the field before getting shuffled around. Both drivers made many improvements and continued to pick up speed before the track began to give way. Greg would finish unofficially 7th, and Alex unofficially 8th.
In the Formula 125 class #77 Will Salisbury grabbed the pole by .7 tenths over second place. Will picked up his first heat win by a wheel length in race 1. In race 2 Will would finish 1st on track, but an on track incident resulted in a 4th place penalty. Will would unofficially finish on the podium in 2nd position.
GGR Karts would like to thank our tremendous crew and families for the continued support and effort at each race!
Next race is round 4 of the Gearup F Series, July 29-30th at Saint Lawrence Motorsports Park!
