But with Kicera’s typical fastspeeds hindered by a 40kgweight penalty that carriedover from the previous round,Hurley was able to move evencloser to the title. The feattied up the championshipentering the opening round,ratcheting up the dramaahead of the doubleheader.
“I really thought Tyler [Kicera]deserved the championshipas much as me,” says Hurley.
“If either of us won, I’d be a
happy guy. It’s great to win a
championship again – it’s been
awhile [2008 in the SCCA Pro
Racing TDI Cup]. I’m super
excited and hoping, just maybe
we can make this lead, to show
what we can do in a real car, even
if it’s just a couple races.”
