Miami, Fl -
Barber Motorsports Park Weekend:
Despite never seeing the track before and running a driver who triples as a mechanic and a full-time student, we did a decent job as a group. After putting the 30-year-old chassis on the pole in Qualifying, we went on to win race 1, finish second in race 2, and fight from 7th to 2nd to then unfortunately going off in race 3.
James Lee claims that "we need to give our drivers a better car for some of these circuits, our setup struggles on tracks that involve any sort of elevation change, the cars are all tuned for Florida tracks which are all flat. Due to the condition's that we regularly race and test in, our current program is slightly lacking when we attend these F1600 races up north, making the car difficult to drive and almost impossible to win consistently in."
Jonathan Lee adds to the words of his father by saying "I haven't been able to put my best effort into my driving, I'm pretty deep into study for my mechanical engineering exams, and that's where most of my time goes during the week and on race weekends.
In the ideal world, I would like to dedicate 100% of my time to my racing career, but my mom is making me finish university first. I'm very glad to be able to race, I've worked so hard to get here and the journey is just beginning. I'm not sure what the future holds, but I'm fully committed to chasing my dreams of racing in INDYCAR, and I plan to ride it out until the end. Barber was a good weekend for us, being able to compete and win- with the equipment that we are using is the icing on the cake!"
