On Tuesday, F2 pilot Dana Tomes heads for Europe and the opportunity to participate in the famous endurance event – the 24 Hours of Rouen, May 18, 19 and 20. This year Tomes is the only North American driver in the entry field in all three divisions. While the F2 class is his choice while competing stateside, he will be a member of the Class 1 Shark Racing Team along with three men from France. Follow Dana and the rest of the team on the Herd Racing web site (www.HerdRacing.com) and on Facebook www.facebook.com/HerdRacing.
In addition to Superleague participant Tomes, two other Rouen event drivers, both racing in the Class 2 section, have spent time in the states racing with us: Yvonne Koenig (Germany) made her debut in Pittsburgh driving for Joe Schulte in the SST 60 class and Uvis Slakteris joined us to compete in the SST 120 World Championship racing for his home country, Latvia. Yvonne returns to Team Neptune along with drivers from Germany and France, Uvis is part of the Balt Yacht team with pilots from Latvia, Russia and Poland.
We wish all three entrants good luck; we wish everyone a safe but exciting event.
