After fixing the engine issues that plagued the team at their last event, Watkins Glen, Riley Racing returned for the season finale of the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
With only one week between the Lime Rock and Watkins Glen event, the Riley Racing crew was glad to leave Lime Rock Park with very little damage and few repairs. The Continental Tire 150 weekend at Watkins Glen International started extremely well, with Jameson Riley (@jamesonriley) going 2nd quickest again in Practice, demonstrating the true potential of the Riley Racing Mazda RX-8.
Having not raced with the Riley Racing Mazda RX-8 since the first race of the 2011 season at Daytona, the team spent the last few months developing the car and engine with great success. In the first practice session, Jameson Riley (@jamesonriley) was 2nd fastest of 33 cars, only 4 tenths off the record lap around Lime Rock Park for a Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge ST competitor.
With a newly installed Bosch ECU and some other updated components, we went into the first race of the 2011 Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge with high-hopes for success and more laps led at Daytona International Speedway. Our weekend started extremely well, and all of the new components worked exactly as we wanted. After two great practice sessions and some minor modifications to our updates, AJ Riley (@ajriley) got in the car to qualify in the afternoon. Unfortunately AJ had a minor fire inside the car when he had just started his flying lap and was forced to abandon his qualifying effort. The fire was quickly extinguished, and no one, including the car, was hurt.
