The Formula BMW-Americas series completed Round 5 earlier today at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. Giancarlo Vilarinho put in a solid race to cross the stripe first–2.994 seconds ahead of Gabby Chaves. Gianmarco Raimondo finished third, just 4.013 seconds behind the leader. The victory by Vilarinho marked his third win of the season, as well as his third consecutive win. Today’s event was the first race of a three race weekend for the Formula BMW drivers, so stay tuned for more updates.

The “hard charger” for Round 5 is James Kovacic. He improved the most positions of the race– a mere two! That said, the rules are pretty simple–improve the most positions and you will be noted as the “hard charger”.
