Today’s video features Wyatt Gooden pushing the limits of his Quantum Racing Services’ F2000 Championship Van Diemen race car under the setting Oklahoma sun on Hallett Motor Racing Circuit — a 1.8-mile, 10-turn road course which features over 80 feet of elevation change and a rhythm section similar to one you’d find at Mid-Ohio.
After earning four wins in four F1600 Formula F Championship starts in 2011, Gooden is graduating to the F2000 Championship with Oklahoma-based QRS for 2012. He’s a good signing for the team and will certainly be a driver to watch in 2012 and beyond.
“Hallett is a phenomenally fun and challenging circuit,” said Gooden, following his pre-season test. “The circuit has a little bit of everything; a 90-mph turn one, a tight hairpin, blind sweepers, a tricky braking zone which starts over a blind crest, and finally a long increasing-radius corner leading onto the main straight. It’s a great place to learn the limits of the car’s aero and mechanical grip, with the added safety of lots of runoff space!”
Take a ride at Hallett with Wyatt Gooden below. Enjoy.
