#Gridlife Round 1 Review

Round one was the biggest timeattack field we have seen since we started #GRIDLIFE. The heat mixed with the first event for many of our Midwest competitors, claimed a few vehicles at Round 1. That didn't stop most records from falling in South Haven. Lets take a look at what happened!  

HPDE +

Eric Dominated the field by almost a full second in his prepped Mustang. It was great to see all those eagles fly during Timeattack. Official Time: 1:43.976

Alex in his clean 350Z put down a respectable time of 1.44.840, which if this was last season's Round 1 would have put him in First. Look forward to seeing more of this car and driver.

Just look at that nose dive, Not sure how much longer the rear wheels care going to be on the ground so we will round up the top 5 from HPDE with Matthew's Focus ST putting down a time of 1:50.110
