OPENING KNIGHTS ROUND 4

The fourth round took the hills of Sonoma California for its 1.99 mile road course set to throw a few more twist into the championship.

The small Cadillac field was led on the grid by series leader, Matt Orr. Orr would soar from flag to flag to take the victory with a 45 second gap by the time it was all said and done. Will anyone raise to the challenge of competing with Matt in the upcoming weeks? Behind him the action started early with Scott Ickes spinning over the crest of turn 2 and collecting Kia pole-sitter, Arthur Hermont in the process.

Ickes was able to continue after getting the car pointed the right direction, whereas Hermont was less lucky and had to pull into the pits for repairs to his KIA which put him at an extreme deficit to his competition in class. Scott would start his charge back through the field and was able to reclaim the final podium position on lap 10 when Shawn Noble found himself in the tire wall outside of the sweeping turn 10.

The continuation of the race went smooth as silk for the top of both fields. The final podium in each class was as follows: Cadillac – Matt Orr, Michael Kasier, Scott Ickes and in the KIA we saw: Kevin Parrish, Andrew Bakke, and Julian Ignacio Longo.
