It was another new track and experience for the Cahan Racing Team as Gabriel and Ayrton Cahan were back in action at the Pittsburgh International Race Complex (PittRace). Closing the Formula Race Promotions (FRP) weekend with a pole position, a victory, two podium results, and several top-ten finishes, Gabriel and Ayrton will shift their focus to the next event.

Competing in the F2000 class, Gabriel scored the pole position on Saturday and capitalized by driving his CRT F2000 machine to victory lane and added another victory to his growing results resume. Scoring points toward his championship battle, Gabriel is in the thick of it as he looks to take the Formula Race Promotions title. Returning to the track on Sunday, Gabriel narrowly missed the pole position but was able to celebrate on the second step of the podium.

“Before the weekend, I looked forward to racing at this track. I found it very fun to drive on the sim and knew it would be even more fun in real life,” explained Gabriel Cahan. “Saturday went our way, qualifying on pole for the race and taking home P1 while being pressured from behind, which kept me pushing to the limit. This ultimately wore my rear tires for the next day’s qualifying session. I learned that the track is abrasive and proved challenging to repeat what we did on Saturday, Sunday. We had an excellent first lap for Sunday’s race starting from P2, but after the first lap, I felt the tires giving up. I struggled with significant oversteer the whole race but ended up finishing second!”

Younger brother Ayrton competed in the F1600 class, qualified 13th and turned that effort into a pair of top-ten results. In race two, Ayrton battled from 13th to finish ninth and backed that up in race three with another top-ten result, finishing eighth. Unfortunately, an incident in race one ruined a weekend that would have seen a trio of top-ten results, but Ayrton is excited to see what the future has in store.

“Pittsburgh was a super challenging weekend, however, a fun one,” added Ayrton Cahan. “It was a learning experience not only for me but the crew, as we have never raced there before. I am looking forward to racing at Pittsburgh again next year!”

Next up for Gabriel, Ayrton, and the Cahan Racing Team will be a trip Road America June 27-30. With the season now past the midway mark, championship battles have taken shape, and every point will matter.
