Gidley_SebringLast week the Muscle Milk/Molecule MG2 duo of Memo Gidley and Mike Guasch, came off another successful test at Sebring International raceway in preparation for the upcoming Twelve Hour of Sebring race March 17th. 

 The Muscle Milk team went through numerous changes to their Oreca LMPC prototype race car in nice but hot conditions. “The weather was hot which always makes a high down force car a little trickier to set up,” said Gidley. “But I was very happy with our pace and the things that we learned in the test.” 

 

The team also had another chance to get to work together and fine tune procedures and for everybody to get to know each others personalities better.  “Racing for success is totally a team sport and everybody must be working together,” said Gidley. “Not only that, the environment is intense, the work is hard, and I have so much respect for all the Muscle Milk/Molecule team personnel.”

Memo’s teammate, Mike Guasch, also had numerous laps to fine tune his game, and even posted his best time ever at the Sebring track in an LMPC car. “The test felt good,” said Mike. “Memo and our engineer Marc did a great job to make some major improvements.  Also, from my first laps in the car, I felt comfortable right away.  Over the last couple of years, I have bounced around driving many different types of cars.  It is such a nice feeling to be back in the same car all the time because our racecar now feels like a good fitting pair of shoes.”

Team owner Greg Pickett was also present at the test cheering on his boys.  “It was awesome to have Greg at our test,” said Gidley. “He is such a great supporter and always has great advice for us whether we are stuck in a rut or making test plans throughout the day.  He brings a fun and calming effect to our program that cannot be duplicated.”
