P1 Hobbies in Ukiah, California played host to round 5 of the 2018 CTS3 and the event’s name was called Heat which was perfect since temperatures reached over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The track was run counter clockwise which included a down hill straight away and a center kink making it almost difficult to drive hard and go fast. In Modified Touring Car, it was Rick Hohwart setting the early TQ and kept setting the bar higher with a super fast Q3. Rick’s prototype TC7.2 became quickly noticed and was the car to beat as he won tone to tone in the main with David Jun (Team Associated) 2nd and Brandon Clements (Awesomatix) in the 3rd. The points chase is close for these three drivers leading to two more rounds in the series.
In 17.5 Touring it was Xray driver Lex Tyler that took the TQ and 2in for the main followed by Kyle Colbert (Awesomatix) 2nd then Juan Aveytia in 3rd. For USGT it was Clayton Young showing the locals some speed securing the TQ and win in the main followed by Matt Kidd in 2nd and James Joiner in 3rd.
