Barnes said, “Leaving the SKUSA Pro Tour feeling great, running the Pro Tour has always been on my list of races to do.
Our goal going into it was to be able to run top 2 and compete for a National #1 plate. Disappointed in our class numbers but we did what we set out to do, run top 2 all weekend and become a SKUSA Champion!
Joe Ruch had the home track advantage but we were able to stand toe to toe with him and have some awesome tight races.
We left this weekend with the fastest lap time, 2 finals wins and a finals 2nd, and the overall 125 G1 Shifters Championship!!!!!
Hard coming from a small island but we are bringing the SKUSA National #1 Plate back to Bermuda !!!!”
