US RaceTronics Ready to Conquer Virginia International Raceway

22.08.2019: US RaceTronics arrived at Virginia International Raceway yesterday with their sights set on replicating their successes from Road America earlier this month. Damon Ockey and Jacob

US RaceTronics arrived at Virginia International Raceway yesterday with their sights set on replicating their successes from Road America earlier this month. Damon Ockey and Jacob Eidson are still striving for the top step of the overall podium in the No. 09 Lamborghini of Vancouver. While the pair were happy with their second and fourth-place overall finishes at Road America, as well as two wins in the ProAm class, they've come into this weekend looking to grab their first overall win.
 


Ron Atapattu and Patrick Liddy will be competing again in the ProAm class this weekend in the No. 24 Elephantea Lamborghini of La Jolla. The pair had success in their first race together, taking second-place in the ProAm class in the second race at Road America. Atapattu offered Liddy the opportunity to co-drive with him after the No. 34 Lamborghini of Beverly Hills crashed in Saturday's race. The duo enjoyed working together to get Atapattu his first podium of the season and are planning to finish the season together.
 


Steven Aghakhani is ready to bounce back from a disappointing weekend at Road America in the No. 6 Lamborghini of Beverly Hills. The 16-year-old had radio issues that plagued him all weekend, but the team has worked to rectify the issue and everyone is expecting to see Aghakhani back on the top step of the podium in the AM class this weekend at Virginia International Raceway. The youngster from Southern California won both of his races in his debut at Watkins Glen International and is excited to have the opportunity to show his fans that he can repeat that success.
 


Team owner Shane Seneviratne is eager to get the weekend started. The team stayed a few extra days at Road America to prep the cars for this weekend since the two races were so close together. Seneviratne is confident that everything is exactly as it needs to be to have another successful race weekend.
 


The team will participate in today's promoter test with the official race weekend kicking off tomorrow with practices at 8:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. EDT. Qualifying for both races is Saturday morning starting at 9:55 a.m., followed by Race 1 that afternoon at 4:45 p.m. EDT. Race 2 goes green Sunday morning, August 25, 2019 at 10:55 a.m. EDT.
 



 
Quotes:
 


Steven Aghakhani
- "We are really looking forward to this race. Our last race at Road America we experienced some bad luck with radio failure and some other issues, but we are ready to come back strong and get incredible results for the race. We always learn from our mistakes and my team is the best I could ask for. With that I am ready to win again!"
 


Patrick Liddy -
"Huge thanks to Ron and the whole Elephantea racing team for having me back in the #24 car here at VIR. We are looking to improve on our 2nd place finish at Road America and I am confident we can make things happen. I've never been to this track so it will be a busy weekend trying to figure out the speed secrets here." 
 


Ron Atapattu -
"Team Patrick and Ron is looking for a repeat at VIR. I think we've got a great chance of getting another second-place podium finish like we did at Road America and I'm looking forward to racing with Patrick again this weekend."
 


Damon Ockey
- "Had an amazing car from US RaceTronics and some good luck at Road America. Won our class in both races and an overall podium. Looking to continue our push for overall podiums at VIR. It's a challenge with some very strong PRO cars in the field. Jacob has the pace so it will be up to me as the AM to elevate my driving. This is what racing is all about, taking a great car from the team and driving to match their efforts. VIR is a top 5 track for me so I'm looking forward to getting back there."
 


Jacob Eidson
- "Coming off of a great race weekend at Road America with a P2 and P4 overall, we hope to continue that success at VIR. From previous experience racing, VIR has always been a challenge but I look forward to taking on that challenge once again!"
 


Shane Seneviratne -
"We had some great success at Road America with an overall podium, as well as multiple class podiums. Unfortunately, we lost the No. 34 on Saturday, but Bryce was able to walk away from the crash, so that's the important thing there. Ron was gracious enough to offer Patrick a co-driver position in his car and that ended up working out great for both drivers, getting them a second-place podium in their first outing in the ProAm class. We had a couple of issues with Steven last race, but those are all resolved and we expect to see him back on the top of the AM podium. I think it should be a good weekend for all three cars."
