Press Release from Paul Wynn:
Once again FSEARA traveled to another iconic on-road circuit in Florida that played host to the 2013 ROAR Nationals. Village Raceway has a very unique sealed racing surface that provides extremely high grip and no tire wear. With 70 entries and perfect weather, racing was extremely fast and tight throughout the different classes. JConcepts driver AJ Marasco got things rolling in qualifying by taking the overall TQ in 17.5 expert Touring Car and the only driver to post 28 laps with his A1R equipped TC7.2 . Unfortunately AJ suffered some lap traffic issues in the A-main and had to settle for 2nd place to veteran stock racer Cory Parsons and Michael Bruce finishing 3rd with his brand new A1R body.
Modified Touring Car would see a dominating performance in qualifying by Dave Vera and his JConcepts A1R equipped Awesomatix ride by posting the only 30 lap run. JConcepts Paul Wynn would qualify 2nd and local favorite David Baptiste would be 3rd. The Mod TC A-main was the last race of the day and with the sun setting in the background, traction was at an all time high. At the start of the race Dave and Paul Wynn would quickly pull away from the field and Dave’s pace was extremely fast, but the extreme grip began to factor in. Dave had a massive traction roll on lap 20 and Paul took full advantage taking over the lead and defended the position till the end for the overall win with his A1R equipped TC7.2. Vera would finish 2nd and Baptiste in 3rd.
