It was a fantastic weekend for ARRIS racing in Mexico!
Mara Reyes came in first place in the Super Copa Telcel V8 Challenge! She has been tirelessly battling to get to the podium for ARRIS from the beginning of last season. Not only is this a well-deserved victory, but it is also a historic achievement for a female driver in México.
Later in the day, Abraham Calderon came in first place in the ARRIS truck in only his second race in the Freightliner Series.
To top it off, a large number of ARRIS Monterrey employees and their families cheered our drivers on from the stands!
Here are the results...
SERIES: V8 CHALLENGE
START: 3rd PLACE
FINISH: 1st PLACE
ARRIS driver Mara Reyes got her first win of the season with an amazing performance at the wheel. Mara started in third place and she was able to manage a great battle with 14 drivers over the 25 laps.
Mara Reyes: "I'm very happy with the win. The car was really great. The boys did a great job and it helped me on the track. I had no problem to resist the great pace of the race. I felt myself very strong under the heavy heat in Monterrey."
DRIVER: ABRAHAM CALDERÓN
TOTAL LAPS: 30
START: 6th PLACE
FINISH: 5th PLACE
ARRIS driver Abraham Calderon finished in the fifth place on Sunday at the racetrack, Autodromo Monterrey. In very tough weather conditions, Monterrey's driver did a great job by pushing from the beginning to the end.
Calderon also raced the ARRIS truck in the Tractocamiones Freightliner series and came in first place.
Abraham Calderon: "The goal was to get in the top-3. We had a great pace, but something happened on the chassis and we lost some places. We earned some points for the championship. We have to keep working. Thanks to Team ARRIS, they did a good job."
The next round of Super Copa Telcel will be held in two weeks in San Luis Potosí.
