California Roadrace Association 2022 Round 2 @ WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca:  Bryce Prince, Brenden Ketelsen, Daniel Lanuza Dominate!

[Monterey, CA] California Roadrace Association (CRA) held the second round of the 2022 season at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca June 25-26. Racers came from everywhere: Northern and Southern California, various other states, and even other countries. There were over 200 racers participating which resulted in healthy grids for every class and several reaching 40 riders on the grid.  The weather was unseasonably beautiful with sunny skies from the first green flag to the last checkered one.

“While announcing, it was amazing to look out over a full paddock at Laguna Seca for a club race,” said CRA Co-Founder Lyle Geoff Brown.

CRA’s “Racers First” focus continued this weekend; The club shipped in and set up air fence protective barriers provided by the Roadracing World Action Fund. The club would like to thank all of the racers who volunteered to help with installation and teardown.

“Thankfully nobody actually ended up in the fence but a few riders did get close. It sure felt great having it there as extra insurance. We encourage everyone to donate to the Action Fund here: https://www.roadracingworld.com/actionfund/,” said Co-Founder Daniel Mole.

The weekend started off with Toby Khamsouk on his GSX-R1000 taking the win in the 20-lap 61DTC 1000GT race, followed by Yamaha YZF-R1 mounted Ben Hodges in second and Andrew Lee aboard his Kawasaki ZX-10R in third.

Bryce Prince showed up with his BPR Yamaha R1 and R7. He dominated the weekend in the Twins classes with a win in Bellissimoto Twins GT over Ari Henning on his Yoshimura YZF-R7. Bryce continued the victory streak by also taking P1 in the Bellissimoto Twins Grand Prix from pole position, with a blistering best lap time of 1:32.182. He also took first in Bellissimoto Battle of the Twins.  Prince’s domination continued in the 1000 classes where he took P1 in the TRACKDAZ 1000 SUPERBIKE race.

Brenden Ketelsen, on board his Graves Kawasaki ZX-6R, turned up in top form. He took the win in Blud Lubricants 600 SUPERSPORT over Kawasaki ZX-6R mounted Patrick Coleman and Sahar Svik. Ketelsen also came in first in Carters @ the Track 600 SUPERBIKE, as well as 61DTC 600 GT. Declan Van Rosmalen on a Yamaha R6 and Orel Madar on his Kawasaki ZX-6 rounded out the podium in SUPERBIKE, and Patrick Coleman and Declan Van Rosmalen in GT, respectively.

In Sunday’s premier race, the 12-lap Riderzlaw Gold Cup, Bryce Prince rode his BPR Yamaha YZF-R1 to the top step with a commanding victory over Kawasaki ZX-10R mounted Andrew Lee and Brenden Ketelsen on his Kawasaki ZX-6R.

Some of the most compelling races of the weekend were the FEEL LIKE A PRO 400 SUPERBIKE and SUPERSPORT along with the 16-lap FEEL LIKE A PRO 400GT race. In impressive fashion, young gun Daniel Lanuza dominated the weekend by winning all three of the 400 class races. In the 400GT, Kawasaki Ninja 400 racers Jesse Sims and Andrew Gawer completed the top three spots. Sims also got second in 400 SUPERBIKE, with Matt Hornschu on his Ninja 400 in third. In 400 SUPERSPORT, Kawasaki Ninja 400 mounted Ramkumar Subramanian and Jasmine Nichols rounded out the podium.

“I’ve been riding at Laguna Seca for years but I never thought I’d have a chance to race it because I’m not a professional racer,” said Co-Founder Dustin Coyner. “When the opportunity came up for us to host an event here, we jumped at it.  This is an iconic track and racing it was truly one of the best moments of my life. The great attendance meant I had epic battles in every race. Making a pass on someone into the corkscrew is the stuff of dreams.”

Round 3 of CRA competition will be held the weekend of July 23-24 at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park on Configuration-1 Clockwise-Direction.
