For a decade and a half, AiM Sports has upported SCCA National Championship
Runoffs racers with at-track support during
the Runoffs, and this year, the tradition
continues with multiple AiM technicians on
site to assist those utilizing AiM products.
“We’re at the Runoffs to make sure that any
of our equipment, software, firmware,
wiring, and more, is working – we’re
there to support the racers,” says
AiM Sports CEO Mike Jaynes.
The idea, Jaynes explains, is that
with a little assistance from AiM Sports, racers
with AiM products stand the best chance of
achieving their goals. “Maybe they have a sensor
that seems high or low, or maybe they want to
validate something – we can help,” Jaynes notes.
“To a limited degree, we can also help with
data acquisition itself.
“If a racer is dealing with a certain type
of problem with their racecar, we can assist
them in looking at the data and locating the
problem in order to get them back up to speed
as quickly as possible,” Jaynes says. “Some
racers don’t always look at the information
their data acquisition system logs,
so when they are hunting
through the files, they can get
lost in the options. If we can,
AiM Sports will have a number of technicians
at VIRginia International Raceway for the
2019 SCCA Runoffs ready to assist in any
way they can, so if you’re utilizing AiM Sports
technology and have a question during the
big event, call (951) 905-1144 and ask the
on-site technician for hands-on assistance.
The Formula 4 United States Championship
Powered by Honda series
descended on VIRginia
International Raceway in
late July for Rounds 7, 8,
and 9, boasting a field in
excess of 20 cars deep.
After a race-long battle,
Joshua Car took first over
Jose Blanco, with Kiko Porto
completing the podium in
third, leaving race polesitter
Arthus Leist in fourth.
“The slip-stream is crazy
at this track,” said Car after
going from a fifth-place start
to a win in the opening round.
In the opening race on
Sunday, it was Leist out front
as he claimed the checkered
flag with Car finishing
second and Christian Brooks
rounding out the podium.
“This was one of my
best races in F4,” said
Leist following his Round
8 victory. “I was playing
with the slip-stream trying
to pass drivers and the
final two laps were so
tough because the drivers
behind me were so fast.”
The weekend’s final podium
looked similar to the morning
round on Sunday with the
same drivers finishing atop
the results, albeit in a different
order. This time, Brooks
seized the highest step on
the podium, followed by Car
in second and Leist in third.
“I was driving as hard
as I could,” said an elated
Brooks after the race. “I made
a couple of mistakes trying
to push the car to its very
max, and I’ve never been
so happy to win a race.”
