Anders Krohn breaks track record at Eagles Canyon Raceway
April 13th, 2009 Decatur, TX -- Star Mazda Championship team Mundill and their driver Anders Krohn recently completed a two day test at Eagles Canyon Raceway, just outside Dallas, TX. The technical road course that was completed in November 2007, proved the perfect place for Mundill and Krohn to improve their car and communication with each other.
Krohn also managed to beat the overall track record that was previously held by Ex. Formula 1 and Champ Car driver Christiano Da Matta, driving a Grand Am Daytona Prototype car. Krohn's time of 1.39,993 was just over four tenths quicker than Da Matta's time, 1.40,400.
Eagles Canyon Raceway President, David Cook, was impressed with the team's improvements around the 2.5 mile, 11 turn racing track. "I think it is a spectacular achievement to beat the track record after just two days of testing. The track was created with professional drivers and teams in mind, and it's great to see Mundill gather such a substantial amount of information over just two days of testing. We want to see professional racing here in the future, and will continue the development to make the track one of the best road courses in North America." Ended Cook.
Next up for 21 year-old Anders Krohn is round two of the Star Mazda Championship, which will be held on April 25th at Virginia International Raceway. "The test days at Eagles Canyon were a big help in finding the right car set-up for my driving style. The track was incredibly technical, and I'd like to compare it to two of my favorite North American tracks, Mid Ohio Sports Car Course and Watkins Glen International. I feel ready for the next races to come, and appreciate the chance to drive at Eagles Canyon and develop my working relationship with Mundill." Said an excited Anders Krohn.
