Mygale Drivers Claim Four of Top Five Championship Spots after Road Atlanta

Braselton, GA – The second weekend of the F1600 Formula F Championship Series at Road Atlanta proved to be successful for the Mygale Honda drivers entered in the event.

Race one was held on Friday afternoon, with WISKO Race Engineering’s Aaron Telitz starting from the pole. Aaron proved the qualifying pace was legit when he completed the sweep with a win.

Telitz battled right to the checkers with Bryan Herta Autosport’s Adrian Starrantino, who added to his championship lead with a strong second place finish. Fellow Mygale pilots Ayla Agren (also of Bryan Herta Autosport) and Steve Bamford, driving the Rice Preparation Mygale Honda, locked in four of the top five spots.

“The Mygale chassis handled great all weekend at Road Atlanta,” said Telitz. “Right out of the box, the car was fast and responded really well to changes.”
