Entering the third event weekend of the FR Americas Championship Powered by Honda, Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport driver Ryan Shehan will take on the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course second in the series championship. With two wins and six podium results to his credit in the six wheel-to-wheel races this season, Shehan is just four points behind his teammate and championship competitor as the season reaches the midway point this coming Sunday.
“The goal is to win, regain the championship point lead, and be the hunted, not the hunter,” explained the aspiring F1 driver. “We set our goal before the season started to win the championship and are working hard on and off the track to achieve it.”
Ryan has a positive history at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, scoring two podiums in the F4 U.S. Championship series there last year, the first of which was his first runner-up finish.
“It’s a fun track, and I’m really excited to be back at Mid-Ohio,” explains Shehan. “The team and I are confident we have a race-winning car, and it’s always tough battling for that top spot with your teammate. But I’ve had some success here in the past, and I’m looking forward to more in the future.”
Set to hit the track on Thursday for test sessions, Shehan will take on official practice on Friday before the ever-important qualifying session that afternoon. Saturday will feature a single wheel-to-wheel race before Sunday sees the green flag fly for races two and three on the weekend.
