Ferrer-aza takes the double at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion
Masters USA – Race 2 Saturday afternoon.
Matteo Ferrer-aza dominated the final Masters USA race today at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in his Ligier JS11. Ferrer-aza led from flag to flag and other than a bunching of the field during full course yellows no one got close. Mike Cantillon got past Timothy de Silva’s Shadow DN3 in Turn 11, but wasn’t able to take the fight to Ferrer-aza. Charles Nearburg started and finished third in his Williams FW07B.
Ethan Shippert had a spirited drive into fourth with the Brabham BT44. On a number of laps he ran wide on the exit of Turn 11 and visited the gravel without impacting his position. The Tyrrell 012 of Steve Romak finished sixth followed by the continually improving March 741 of Martin Lauber. Chris Farrell finally found his form to bring the March 821 into seventh, his best placing of the weekend.
Ron Maydon, Bud Moeller and Chris Locke all moved up into the top 10 as others dropped back or retired. After starting from the second position and being passed by Cantillon, Timothy de Silva held third position until the fuel pump failed in his Shadow DN3. As his car slowed, Jamie Constable and Cal Meeker had an unforced error in their Shadow DN8 and Tyrrell 009. The incident brought out the yellow flag until the race ended.
Thanks for a great weekend – next up for Master USA’s weekend is the weekend of 5/9/30 October at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, California
