Pinnacle Motorsport will continue its pursuit for more podium finishes when the Formula Masters Series enters its second event this May 5-7.
Taylor Cockerton, Antolin Gonzalez, and Ben Grimes are again heading the team’s three-car lineup. The trio were able to score a pole position in qualifying, plus two podium finishes and a win last month. Thus, the team is confident it can repeat the achievement, as the event will once again take place at the 5.543 km Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia.
With their performance, Cockerton is currently 3rd in the Drivers’ Classification while Gonzalez and Grimes are 6th and 7th, respectively. “I’m super exited for round two of the Formula Masters Series at Sepang,” says Cockerton. “We had a strong start to the season last month with good pace and lots of points. Since then, I have been thinking on what I need to improve in order to get better. My main target this weekend is to win but we’ll see how the weekend plays out.”Pinnacle Motorsport, on other hand, is 2nd in the Team Championship heading into the weekend.
Ben Grimes is looking to build on his experience. “Now that I have experienced a full race weekend in Formula Masters, I’m hoping to build on the strong finishes I had at the first round and score more points for both the drivers’ and the teams’ championship. I’ll be pushing as hard as I can for a podium.”
Antolin Gonzalez: “I’ll be focusing on my race pace for this event, improving on my consistency and lap times around Sepang. Together with the team, we hope we can convert this into a top three finish and score valuable championship points.”
