Post Event Recap
New Jersey Motorsports Park, Millville, NJ
Hello, everyone in the Berg Brigade,
I am now back home in Buford, Georgia, after a very eventful weekend at New Jersey Motorsports Park racing in the F4 U.S. Championship Powered by Honda!
We came home with two P4 finishes and a P5. Although we did not get the desired results, we learned a lot and will push for more in the next round. I do not know where I sit in the points standings, but I will make sure to announce it when official points are released.
All weekend, the entire Doran-Kroll Competition team pushed to the max to give us the best result possible, and they did a phenomenal job. This was my first weekend in F4 with a teammate – Jack Zheng – and it was so beneficial to have a peer to discuss the track and other characteristics of our Ligier F4 cars. My teammate did a great job at re-learning the car, as he had not driven an F4 car since the first round of the season in April. He had a top-ten pace, but due to some events that happened in the race, Jack finished 14th out of 19 cars in Race #3.
On our side of the garage, from the very start, we had pace. We qualified P4, with 1/10th of a second separating each car in the top four. In Race #1, we finished P4 with the 2nd fastest lap time, only .005 of a second off of the pole. In Race #2, we finished P4 again with the 3rd quickest lap time, only 0.218 of a second off of the pole as well.
In Race #3, we just did not have the pace to stay with the top 3. On the second lap of the race, I was overtaken, which dropped me to P4. I stayed in P4 for most of the race until a full course caution came out, which gave the car behind me an opportunity to pass. Therefore, I ended Race #3 finishing P5 with the 7th quickest time, but only 0.278 of a second off of the pole! That just shows you how tight the F4 U.S. Championship is!
Our next event is at a favorite track of mine which is the famous Virginia International Raceway! The last time we were there was racing in the Spec MX-5 Challenge, where we finished both races of the weekend P1 on track!
One last thing I would like to mention is over the weekend, I gathered some video clips and will be posting my first ever “Vlog” to YouTube to show in real-time our findings of the weekend!! Watch out for another newsletter soon!
