2019 Majors Americas

2019 Majors Americas

Date: 
Wednesday, December 18, 2019 - 09:30 to Friday, December 20, 2019 - 04:00

For 2019, Kinetic will run full teams in both the Pro and Sportsmans constructors championship and small junior teams supporting both.

 

The factory team will consist of Wade Hays, Vince l'Herbier and Scott Corbin (all members of the 2nd place team in 2018) plus new team members Liam Quinn and Mark Schindel. Marc Torres is unlikely to be able to run in all rounds in 2019 so he'll be in the Junior team, but promoted to the Factory team when he's available.

 

The Customer (Sportsman) team will all be returning drivers from 2018 - Gustavo Cianfarini, Eddie Hawks, Ernie Ludwig, Rob Powers and Rory Collins.  Gustavo, Rory and Eddie are all classified as Pro drivers within the Majors so the team is right on the limit of being a customer team and should be competitive in that category. 

 

Both teams have attached Junior teams as backup for when drivers aren't available.

 

So far in 2019:

 

Round 1 saw a good start by the team, slightly weakened by the absence of both Wade and Marc. But Vince, Scott, Mark and Liam all drove good solid races to score good points for the team and they are currently 5th in the standings.

 

Round 2

 

Wade will be back for this one and the team has been strong in practice sessions. For this race only, Christian Challiner will be using his guest drive to run in the Americas region as well. Christian has round 1 of the NPAS series the following weekend with his new team JTG Daugherty Racing and wants to run in the strongest position Majors race as preparation for that. Christian featured very strongly in last years Pacific Daytona 500 before suffering a disconnection so will be wanting to make up for that.
