BC Race Cars’ first visit to beautiful California as part of the Trans-Am series proved a wonderful experience on many fronts.
Only our #25 Camaro with Ethan Wilson driving went as Misha had a direct conflict with his IMSA program. We were fortunate to have partnered with Tom Sheehan and his awesome crew who not only transported our car and allowed us to work out of their trailer, but helped and supported us all weekend. Our success is their achievement as well and proves the friendships between teams that exist off the track in the Trans-Am series. Thank you Tom and all your guys!
We did not unload well. Our information on gearing was completely inaccurate and Ethan reported a fair bit of understeer. We were able to quickly address these issues, and Ethan made us proud when he stuck the #25 Camaro in second during qualifying, narrowly missing the pole by 0.15 seconds!
We also enjoyed a good race, although we struggled a bit to keep pace with the lead pack. Regardless, Ethan brought the car home in 3rd place, marking his first ever Trans-Am podium finish and BCR first for the season!
Thanks to the BC Race Cars crew who did such a great job! Their jobs were even harder as the engineering was done remotely, which meant they now also had to gather and constantly feed data back to home base. Well done guys!
