How did this body perform at the IIC?
Thanks for asking Nuts: In a word – FAAAAAANTASTIC!
At the IIC event the PROTOform AMR-12 body was very well accepted by everyone who tried it – whether pro driver or novice. Anyone who tried the body left it on their car for the balance of the week. (except for a couple of pro drivers who were forced to remove the body due to sponsor conflicts)
crushed the competition in 13.5 using the AMR-12. He TQ’d
, then ran away from the field unchallenged in the A-main
- taking the Win
Josh Cyrul TQ’d in the Mod class
with it. There were 6 drivers in the A-main using the AMR-12. There may have been more but a few drivers from outside the USA had trouble getting them on time for the event. There were two on the podium with Josh Cyrul finishing 2nd and Ronald Volker finishing 3rd
. (Ronald was on fire – he bumped up from the B Main then charged through the field from last place for that podium finish)
Incidentally, the weekend before, the Protoform AMR-12 body was in competition for the first time. Andy Griffiths TQ-ed all 5 rounds and finished off qualifying 3 full second ahead of his closest (brand X bodied) rival. In spite of "insidents" - he still pulled off the Win at the CARS AMC Shootout in the UK. (see pic)
Ironically; the AM racing team bagged the European LeMans Series Championship this past weekend in Silverstone. Pretty cool impo. (see pic)
I’m thinking this ROAR and EFRA legal body has a solid future.
