MIR Racing Finetwork Cup: More On Texan Sanchez’s Wins At Cartagena

© 2023, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. From a press release issued By Sanchez Racing:

Mikey Lou Sanchez gets double win at Circuito de Cartagena in the Finetwork MIR Racing Cup. 

Once again Mikey Lou steps on top of the podium in the Finetwork MIR Racing Cup Promo3 Championship.  This time he secured two first-place finishes!

On Friday evening, all competitors changed motors to the regulated MIR Racing Cup Promo3 motor. On Saturday morning during the first qualification session, Mikey’s motor wasn’t running correctly due to an issue with the regulator rectifier. That morning session had ideal conditions to get the best lap of the day since the temperatures were cooler. In the afternoon session, it was hot and harder to go any faster than the first session, but Mikey was able to improve his lap time by half a second and secured P3 in qualifying.

Sanchez’s father Mike Sanchez said, “We were trying to get the pole position, which is an extra five points, and Mikey is behind in points because he missed the first round of the championship. He did about six laps in Qualifying Two (Q2) as we were trying to save his tires for the races since they are only allowed to run one set of tires for the entire weekend.”

On Sunday morning, the weather was perfect and Mikey was ready for Race One. The MIR Racing Cup was a combined grid with the Copa de España Series (COPA).  The race was only seven laps, so it was a full on sprint! Mikey got a great start and led the MIR Racing Cup the entire race and was only behind one other COPA pilot.

Mikey said, “I was going to pass the other COPA rider on the last lap, but I made a little contact with his swing arm. So, I decided I didn’t want to risk it and kept my position and got the win!”

In Race 2, Mikey had a great start, and once again led the MIR Cup race the entire time, getting the double win, and also setting the fastest lap time in each race, giving him an extra 10 points in the championship.

With two more rounds to go in this championship, Mikey might have a chance to finish in the top three.
