Momentum Autosports St Petersburg, FL World Challenge race recap!



Well we are back after a LOT of work. The crew here at Momentum Autosports put in nearly a month of 12+hr days with only one day off. The last 3-4 days were working around the clock, a few of us only got 3 hours of sleep over the final 60hrs. We had the cars done and loaded at 5:55am, our truck driver showed up at 6am to head to MSR-C for pre St Pete testing.

Testing went flawless, we killed 2 sets of tires over our 2 day test with out any problems. Cars are good for the mid 2:teens at MSR-3.1 mile.

After packing up from MSR-C, we headed to St Petersburg, FL for the first World Challenge race. Right off the bat Alec Udell (who just turned 15) was in the top three in practice. He later clicked off a lap good enough for an easy third in qualifying. We were all really happy. The cars weren't even running 8 days prior, and we had never seen the Pirelli tire until we showed up in FL. Unfortunately the line lock stuck on Alec during the first race start causing him to get shuffled back. In lap 3 he tagged a wall which broke the strut. 2 laps later he lost control of the car due to a failed strut and hit the wall- hard. Even after turning only 5 laps he ended up with the 3rd fastest lap of the race. On Sunday we had the car put back together after a late night, be we were never able to get the power steering system 100% back together right and Alec lost power steering on lap 3 and had to retire in the second race.

Ardee our beloved elder driver(snicker) wadded the car up in the first practice. But to his credit he shook it off and we got the car put together for Qual. He never put a wheel wrong the rest of the weekend and finished with two top 10s.

The cars were awesome for so little testing. Alec probably had a shot at winning, and definitely a podium. Look for big things as the year goes.

Due to conflicts, we won't return to World Challenge until Mosport in May. We are hard at work improving the cars and testing until then... oh, and straightening them back out

So cool!

Thank you guys for helping to push the envelope and the platform and showing that it can be quite competitive! While I know you probably couldn't give too many details, has the chassis shown to be stiff enough to not require as significant strengthening compared to other platforms you have worked with?

Keep up the hard work.

That chassis overall is very good. The biggest issues lies in the front end geometry which nobody presently offers a fix for. We will soon

Oh dear, I almost wish I hadn't asked now, this strange feeling of anticipation is starting to build.

Do have a question about the shirts, will there be one with the render/artist rendition of your livery from the initial announcement on it? Or was that a licensed piece of artwork that you'd have to pay the artist to be able to use on a shirt?

Either way, +1
