Sanchez and Frankie Montecalvo were staid for an considerable outcome on Saturday until being struck with a penalty. Their possibility to make justification on Sunday was busted by torrential rain, that forced a delay of a competition until after this year.

“We were on stick for a initial competition and sixth overall,” Sanchez said.

“In a competition on Saturday we were heading a initial half an hour, until a reserve automobile pulled out and afterwards we got a chastisement as well. This done a initial competition unequivocally formidable and we finished fourth in class, 14th overall.

“I managed to do a discerning path in my army that put us second in category and sixth altogether for a second race. But continue conditions were not good. It was raining a lot and we couldn’t competition anymore, so a competition got deferred until after in a year.

“Now we’re environment a sights on Lime Rock Park this weekend and anticipating for some dry weather. We will see what we can do, Lime Rock is a unequivocally parsimonious lane and there is no rest during all – I’m looking brazen to it.”
