Turn 3 Motorsports James Roe had excellent race one at Road America over the weekend in the Indy Pro 2000 championship as he came home in sixth place while unfortunately in race two hw was forced to retire from the race following contact.
Speaking following the action the Irishman said:
Overall, I think it was a weekend of what could have been. “We started off the weekend with a straight line speed issue during testing which was rectified by changing engines. Our speed was then very strong, and in qualifying, we were on the pole up until the last five minutes. Race 1 was steady as we moved forward and showed great speed again. Race 2 was really unfortunate as we had worked our way up to P7 after some bold moves and were the fastest car on track by some margin only to suffer left front suspension failure which ended our day. I’m extremely thankful for the AMR safety team for attending to me so quickly. We have proven our speed once again, so now it’s on to Mid-Ohio.”
Team owner Peter Dempsey commented saying:
It was a challenging weekend for the team. “It was especially difficult because this is our home race, and with our success here in the past, we expected to be stronger. We all worked hard throughout the weekend to maximize our results and fortunately, we were able to come away with some of our best results of the year. Although it’s not what we wanted, it’s still a step in the right direction.”
“I want to thank everyone on our team for their hard work and dedication to making us all better. “We are going to keep pushing as hard as we can for the rest of the season, and we will come back stronger again at Mid-Ohio.”
