Race 2 - 2022

Aeon Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • PRESS RELEASE: Luke Holtren held a small press conference at his trailer this week: "Yeah, it was disappointing. We could have done better. At least we finished. This time around we are going to show what we are made of here at PFR. Just because some of these drivers have been around for a while, doesn't mean they are any good. Watch out for the young guns!"
  • Kerry Mackinaw has a very poor week. "Every driver on this track has had a week like this at some point. It's part of racing."
  • Tom Reynolds, pre-season favourite for the title, is also low. "I'm disappointed,yes. There's lots of factors, but bottom line is it falls on me to get it done."
  • Harold Coins unveils some new side details for the paint scheme of his car, and it gets a nice chunk of TV time investigating his heritage.
  • Race Practice Results: Temporary improvements for Hana Pryde, Dustin Mahoney and Al Houns.
