E-Force racer Michele Abbate attended the 5th round of the SCCA Cal Club Championship in Buttonwillow. With high temps expected all weekend, the GRRRacing team had some their work cut out for them. Racing in her Edelbrock Supercharged Scion FR-S, she drove a smart race which ultimately finished in the top spot.
“With immediate help from Delicious Tuning, all efforts were made to make the best out of the weekend. Abbate qualified on pole for Saturday’s race, but fell short of the 1st place finish due to issues with the fuel system. “We are proud of our 2nd place finish, but it is frustrating to be chasing these gremlins”, Crew Chief Anthony Philleo explains.
“Triple digit weather wasn’t a surprise all day Sunday. Points played a significant role in the efforts for the weekend and Abbate drove a smart race to kept the car happy, ultimately finishing in the top spot. “This year has been a grueling one for use, but I am happy to be learning more about the car as we do everything we can to dial it in”, Michele shares.
