MIRABEL, QUEBEC: Klutt battles hard for a 7th place finish in The Ecko Unlimited 100.
The Smilin’ Assassin faced an uphill battle throughout the entire ICAR event due to a driver one row back jumping the start and making contact with the #59 car. The driver was penalized for the error but left Klutt in the trenches with the entire race still to go.
Even with contact right out of the gates, and a car that wasn’t in perfect driving condition, Klutt was able to capture a top 10 finish with 7th place, helping him gain back his overall standing in 6th position in points with 133, just 35 back from the leader.
“Circuit ICAR is the toughest track that we race at all season … the flat cement surface feels more like a desert than a race track!” joked Klutt.
The Next race on the schedule is the Honda Indy taking place July 16th at Toronto Exhibition Place, which the team is looking forward to. “We never get to race two road courses back to back, so it will be nice to keep the same mindset in the shop over the next week leading up to the race”.
