September 8, 2003, Willows, California ­ Team Speed Secrets drivers Colin Braun and Max Hodencq finished 1st and 2nd in this weekend's Fran-Am 1600 race at Thunderhill Motorsports Park in Willows, California.

Colin Braun took pole position and led every lap of the race to take his 3rd victory in 5 races this season in the Fran Am 1600 pro championship. He is the only driver in the series with more than one win.

To sweeten the deal, his teammate on Team Speed Secrets, Max Hodencq from Belgium, finished 2nd, making it a Speed Secrets 1-2. Max is one of the leading drivers competing in the Belgian Formula Renault Championship, driving for Thierry Boutsen Racing. For this one-off race in North America, he chose Team Speed Secrets to run his car.

The two drivers took the front row with Colin besting Max by .2 seconds. Colin jumped to an early lead and steadily pulled away to take the victory by 5 seconds.

"We're very proud of how Team Speed Secrets performed this weekend", says Bentley. "The cars are the actual Fran-Am 1600's we use in our program, the crew is the team that works with our drivers over the course of our camps, and Colin is a graduate of our program. It was a Speed Secrets victory all around."
