Fueltopia / Formula G Championship - June update
Posted by CobraSportExhausts Admin
At the midpoint of the 2017 Fueltopia Barrel Sprint and Formula G championships, the Cobra Sport sponsored Subaru Impreza driven by Jonathan Buck sits just behind the leaders in the ultra competitive championship. After turbo damage in the first round, Jonathan has been picking up big points throughout the subsequent rounds catching up with the leaders with three events remaining. The Scooby Clinic Racing Subaru Impreza is fitted with a full Cobra Sport turbo back performance exhaust system which was installed earlier this year as part of the race modifications in preparation for this season's events.
Reflecting on an eventful championship so far, Jonathan remains positive for the of the season along with his chances of making it to the Gymkhana Grid World Finals in South Africa later this year.
"After catastrophic turbo failure at the first round of Fueltopia barrel sprint meaning missing Round of Formula G also it seemed it 2017 was going to be an uphill struggle to do well in both championships, however making changes to the turbo set up made the Car perform even better and results so far have been great meaning I'm currently sitting 3rd in both championships, with news of Gymkhana Grid world finals in November now confirmed to be held at Carnival city, South Africa, as well as pushing to win FBS & FG championships a lot of focus will go to making sure I qualify for Grid, but with some top competition I will have to be on my A game to secure one of the spots."
The next events are held at the Rockingham Raceway over the weekend of the 29th and 30th July. Over the weekend, Rockingham will host round 3 of the Fueltopia Barrel Sprint and round 4 of the Formula G championship.
The car also appeared in the display area at the Coventry Motofest earlier this month where the Formula G entrants put on a display for fans as part of the live action drift show.
