Few Bounces Back to Challenge Defending Champ Hurtado
By Daniel Burger

David Hurtado’s pass didn’t stick this time around in the Formula Arroyo, the 12-
lap premier race for the expert class sponsored by Evan Steel Performance. The
third round of racing last Sunday, May 3, began with Hurtado cruising to victory
in the Unlimited Superstock sponsored by Kurvey Girl, but Thibault Few fought
back to claim his first win in the Formula Arroyo and cut reigning champion
Hurtado’s lead to nine points.  

Last minute tire issues resulted in Hurtado missing the qualification, which placed
him at the back of the starting grid, six positions behind pole sitter Few. Having
the reputation for being a poor starter, Hurtado surprised all when the green flag
was raised. “I had a decent start,” Hurtado said. “(I) had to play catch up, but if I’
d been up front, I’d have left him (Few).”

Hurtado and his Suzuki GSX-R1000 wove through traffic and climbed into second
place by the start of the second lap. Two laps later, faster cornering speed closed
the gap to within two seconds of Few and his Kawasaki ZX-10R.

With three laps remaining, Hurtado passed Few in the Yucca, a tight left-hander
just before the right-bending Horseshoe. In a post-race interview, Few claimed to
have begun the race on used tires. “I didn’t have confidence in the front tire,” he
said, “and transitioned late flipping the bike into Yucca.”

Last round, when attempting a pass on Hurtado on the back straight, Few’s brakes
failed and sent him plowing through the infield. Few had to settle for third as his
off-roading endeavor late in the race provided an unsurmountable gap between him
and the first two positions. But with a new master cylinder this round, Few had
only used tires and Hurtado to contend with. “The ZX-10 has superior speed down
the straights,” said Few. “But David (Hurtado) would eat away at me in the
corners.”

On his approach to the waving white flag, Few’s top end advantage did prove key
as he passed Hurtado on the back straight and crossed the checkered first,
Hurtado only half a second behind. Although Hurtado finished in second place, he
did clinch the fastest lap at 1:09.282, which topped Few’s 1:09.403.

The Formula Amateur sponsored by Speedcell, the 12-lap amateur class premier
race, was not contended by young talent Sean Ungvarsky, due to a prior injury in a
non-race incident. However, Lorenzo Thomas seemed keen to play the role of
spoiler as he rode harder than ever and gave series leader Dan Dickerman a run for
his money.

Unable to shake Thomas and his Kawasaki ZX-6R from his rear tire, Dickerman
was finally passed in the Yucca on the fifth lap, but Dickerman’s Yamaha YZF-R6
had more drive in the straights and he retook the lead three laps later on the back
straight. Only a few moments later did Thomas fight back as he set up for a pass
in the 111R, a tight 90-degree bend, but contact with Dickerman’s rear tire
resulted in a high side for Thomas and the day’s only red flag.

Fortunately, Thomas sustained only minor injury and slight cosmetic damage to his
ZX-6R, though he did not rejoin the grid for the remaining five laps. After the
restart, Dickerman coasted to victory with an eight-second gap over Roberto
Reynoso. Fastest lap times were 1:13.917 for Dickerman, 1:15.385 for Reynoso,
and 1:13.993 for Thomas.
