SX16 R8 – Atlanta

February 27, 2016

Georga Dome, Atlanta, GA

QUALIFYING

Tommy Hahn 16th. 46.970 sec

(Top Time) Christophe Pourcel 45.297 sec

Excellent time for Tommy, well within the top 20. He needs to get aggressive on the starts as this track looks “one lined” and will be tough to make up time.

HEAT 1

Getting mid pack start, Tommy moved up to 9th on the first lap. With the sand section catching Stewart and Canard off guard, Tommy got closer to transferring directly by placing 6th at the flag. To the Semi, Tommy needs a clean start to get a transfer position as he’s riding good in the Atlanta clay.


SEMI 1 

Excellent start down the long straight, Tommy was fighting for 2nd going in and came out in 3rd in the first turn. Peick went by on lap 1, and Tommy rode out the race in 4th until Pourcel went down in 2nd and Tommy transfer to the main by finishing 3rd.

MAIN

Tommy got bunched up in the first turn and first rhythm section when btother Wil, Short and Nicoletti collided in mid-air. Seeing his brother down I’m sure was unsettling but Tommy raced through to finish 19th. With the points he earned in Atlanta, Tommy now sits in 19th in series points.
