Frankie Montecalvo and former GT Academy winner Ricardo Sanchez and Frankie Montecalvo have sights set on a dry weekend and better luck as the Pirelli World Challenge Championship heads for the second part of its back-to-back SprintX weekends.

Sanchez and Frankie Montecalvo looked strong for an impressive result on Saturday until being struck with a penalty. Their chance to make amends on Sunday was ruined by torrential rain which forced the postponement of the race until later this year

“We were on pole for the first race and sixth overall,” Sanchez said.

“In the race on Saturday we were leading the first half an hour, until the safety car pulled out and then we got a penalty as well. This made our first race very difficult and we finished fourth in class, 14th overall.

“I managed to do a quick lap in my stint that put us second in class and sixth overall for the second race. But weather conditions were not good, it was raining a lot and we couldn’t race anymore, so the race got postponed until later in the year.

“Now we’re setting our sights on Lime Rock Park this weekend and hoping for some dry weather. We will see what we can do, Lime Rock is a really tight track and there is no rest at all – I’m looking forward to it.”
