"Another three victories for P1 Engines in 2010"
Article By: Race Tech Development
October 12, 2010 - In only its second year of existence, the Lancaster Grand Prix has become a street race playground for California based P1 Engines. Looking to carry the momentum of a strong season in to an event that is becoming a more popular with each passing year, P1 Engines scored three victories in three separate divisions proving once again their dominant power.
With practice taking place on Friday, it was wheel-to-wheel racing action that would ensue over the weekend to decide the Lancaster Grand Prix champions. Continuing P1 Engines PRD success, Robby Harryman would carry the torch this weekend and would not disappoint. After making the switch to P1 Engines at the last minute, Harryman would score the main event victory after qualifying in the second position. Fellow P1 Engines powered driver Maya Gutierrez would show the strength of the company after scoring the pole position and a second place result making it another one-two finish for P1 Engines.
Competing in the KPV 2 class was Colombian pilot Nicholas Morales. Utilizing P1 Engines power, Morales struggled a bit in qualifying but would begin his march towards victory in the prefinal. Making quick moves at the drop of the green flag, Morales would advance forward to the third position before the checkers flew. With the result, Morales would take the inside second row starting spot for the main event. Striving for the victory, Morales worked with engine builder Jesus Vasquez to ensure his equipment was in race winning order.
Looking to score P1 Engines second victory of the weekend, Morales quickly moved to the lead in the final and never looked back. Driving a flawless race, Morales scored the race win, stood atop the podium and was named the Lancaster Grand Prix KPV 2 Champion.
Utilizing P1 Engines power in the Comer division was Canadian pilot Parker Thompson. The talented Sportsman competitor has been on fire as of late scoring multiple race wins in several different events and classes and the same would happen this past weekend. After qualifying in the second position, Thompson would fail to finish the heat race after engine issues would force him to retire and start the main event from the tail of the field. Driving like a seasoned veteran, Thompson began his quest toward victory at the drop of the green flag picking off competitors one at a time. With one of the quickest karts on the track, Thompson drove to the lead in the late stages of the race and claimed his second Lancaster Grand Prix win after winning a Rotax division earlier that day.
"It has been an incredible weekend," expressed P1 Engines Jesus Vasquez when the event was complete. "This event is turning into something special and we are already planning our attendance to the 2011 event."
