WET START TO THE WEEKEND

Hurricane Harvey has left its mark on Houston as one of the worst storms in US History and now the rain has stopped we hope we can all experience a speedy recovery.

All the crew of Radical Texas Race Team managed to make it to the Race Shop this morning and we were greeted by a water front facility but luckily no damage.  It is maximum attack to get all the race cars ready to race this weekend at the last race of the Radical Masters North American Championship at the Circuit of the Americas.

Full Schedule can be seen here and we hope to see you in Austin.

Our thoughts are with those families and businesses that have a tough road to recovery from this storm.

QUOTE from Ian Dawson

After testing with Theodeor early this year at our Base at MSR Houston it was clear we had a real star in the making .
The first three races have been challenging for him and the team due to some mechanical issues  but scored podiums non the less both in SR8 and SR3 chassis
Theodors car control and light feel compliment the chassis set up template that we have in place at Radical Texas on all our Radical chassis and engine options and he showed in tests and race he can master the heavier more powerful cars in the same way
I and the team are really looking forward to seeing him back in Class 1 of the Masters final at COTA along side one of our other Junior drivers in the Class 2 1500

RADICAL TEXAS RACE TEAM DOMINATION

RADICAL Texas dominated the forth round of the Series at Laguna Seca with one of their SR3 RSX 1500

Driven by Norways Theodor Olsen part of the companies Young driver program at 17 years old didnt make a single error in all three days
The Black and Gold / Gulf Racing fuels car almost had a 100% clean sweep but in race 2 while leading by 20 sec with 5 laps to go suffered a misfire due to an ignition coil pack terminal failure .
After being fastest in testing Friday and Qualifying on POLE BY OVER  HALF A SECOND Theodor drove a flawless 40 min race crossing the finish line 30 seconds ahead of 2 nd placed driver  Ethan Stone
Fastest lap in all 3 races was achieved by a clear margin
Race 2 again 40 min saw Olsen again take the lead from the line pulling out over 20 sec before the misfire started dropping him to 6th
Race 3  40 min duration with a mandatory pit stop of 2 min again saw the dominance of the Driver car combination with a pit stop at 20  min and a lead of 15 sec Theodor exited in 4th place but by the time all cars had pitted Radical Texas had a clear 30 second lead over Ethan Stone in second and over 50 seconds AHEAD of Championship leader Richard Thomas in 4th pace .
After the frustration of race 2 Theodor put this behind him and posted the fastest lap of the weekend at 1,27.4 ON LAP 5 which was a compliment to his maturity
