EBC Brakes-sponsored racer Tony Nguyen recently participated in the Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga, Ontario.
Here’s Tony’s report from the day:
CSCS Round 2 is in the books! It was a difficult day as I had blown 3rd gear in my WRX 5 Speed (for the second time this year) in my first session. In addition, it rained all day which made for some very slick conditions, especially with the Pirelli Trofeo R’s. For the remainder of the day I decided to continue competing without 3rd gear and ran 2nd and 4th gear for the majority of the track.
I ended up qualifying 1st in Street AWD. When it was time for the finals, the track had dried up a bit and left me at a huge disadvantage without 3rd gear against my competitors. However, I still managed to podium and ended up in 3rd place!
All in all, a challenging day, but a successful day nonetheless. The guys at Neetronics are in the process of swapping a STI 6 Speed transmission and getting the car ready for Round 3 on July 21st -22nd.
