Thunderhill SpeedTour kicked off the 2024 Revolution Cup which saw a dominant display by the returning champion

The Thunderhill SpeedTour marked the beginning of the 2024 Revolution Cup on the West Coast last weekend in the Prototype Sprint Series Association. The event featured a thrilling mix of endurance and sprint races across the weekend.

Returning champion Ron Fletcher showcased his dominance, piloting his Revolution RSR prepared 500SC to an impressive three wins out of three races. The action-packed weekend kicked off with an endurance race on Saturday followed by two sprint races on Sunday.

The endurance race, held in dry but cold conditions, initially saw the rapidly-improving Chris Hinojosa claim victory in his Revolution 500SC. However, a post-race penalty for repeated track limit infringements shuffled the standings moving him down to 3rd. Doug Ramirez was promoted to 2nd place and Ron Fletcher 1st, resulting in a Revolution 1, 2, 3 on the track.

In Sunday's sprint race 1, Hinojosa continued to display his improvement by briefly leading, but Fletcher reclaimed the lead on lap three. Fletcher's consistent fast laps secured him an unassailable lead, accompanied by the fastest lap of the weekend at 1:50.848. Unfortunately a broken supercharger belt ended Ramirez's race early, preventing another Revolution podium clean sweep. Resultantly Kevin Terpstra secured 3rd place in his Chevy.

Sprint race 2 saw light rain affecting the pace, but the podium remained unchanged with Fletcher clinching another victory, followed by Hinojosa and Terpstra.

The Revolution dominant display at Thunderhill in the Prototype Sprint Series Association sees the English manufacturer taking an early lead in the constructors championship, setting the stage nicely for the East Coast kick off scheduled at Eagles Canyon Raceway this coming weekend March 7-10. Motorsport enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating the continuation of high-speed competition in the Revolution Cup.
