Warming Up for Winter Series ShowdownBy Jonathan Haswell In Formula 3 Racing Series
A return to the mighty Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for the final two rounds of the Jim Russell F3 Winter Series by Simraceway is just around the corner–and it looks like 2014 Summer Series champion, Chase Murray is in the Catbird seat for back-to-back titles.
For the rest of the pack, things aren’t quite so straightforward though. Late charger Brian Frank will hope to put in a stronger qualifying and start effort this time so he doesn’t have to pull more last-lap heroics out of the bag. Who knows, maybe a front-row start could see him finally get to dice it up for the lead and stop the Texas Flash from dominating the upcoming races.
Biting at Brian’s ankles will be the ever-aggressive Pat Daly, while old sparring partners John Schauerman, Quentin Wahl and Doug Tuttle are always more-than-capable of fighting it out for podium spots. With one weekend and two races at the Monterey facility under their belts, everyone should be ready to go, so it should be quite a show!
