3rd annual Full Throttle Championship – Report

The Full Throttle Championship took place last recently with the largest classes being USGT and 17.5 Sedan. The Banana Raceway is a smaller track of CRC black carpet glued to a wood subfloor inside a well-lit and climate-controlled building. This year’s race was the third instalment of this event and attracted drivers from around Texas, LA and OK. The 3-day schedule following a rocket round format allowed for practice all day Friday with three qualifiers on Saturday, an LCQ on Sunday followed by AAA mains. The tight layout was installed Thursday night and rewarded drivers who kept up with their setups as the grip transitioned from low on Friday to medium-high grip by Sunday afternoon. The premier Modified Sedan class was dominated by Chris Adams, Andrew Doherty and Steve Breuer securing the top 3 qualifying positions respectively and earning the same top 3 finishing positions.

The 17.5 Sedan class has Andrew Doherty taking the overall from Marc McGurren and TJ Ball.

In 17.5 1/12th scale mains lots of position changes and challenges were for the drivers to overcome. After all was sorted through the three mains Marc McGurren finished on top in front of Keooura and Robert Bremmer.

USGT represented the largest class of the weekend. Marc McGurren and Billy Land went to work in qualifying and secured TQ and 2nd and then backed it up in the mains taking the top two steps from Gilbert Santos 3rd.

In the Formula class, Christian Jones took the win ahead of Robert Bremmer took 2nd while Brian Montgomery completed the podium.
