Alexandra Gamache Three-Peats as Champion in F1 Outdoors’
F1 150 Endurance Race
East Bridgewater, Mass. (November 21, 2011) – It was a great day of racing a couple Sundays ago at F1 Outdoors as the 2011 F1 150 Endurance Race (formerly known as the Ironman) took place. Once again this year’s ‘Ironman’ is ironically a young lady, 16-year old Alex Gamache. Even more impressive, Alex has won all three of F1 Outdoor’s annual season ending Endurance Races. Unlike traditional endurance race formats, the F1 150 features a field of individual drivers with just one kart, one pit stop for fuel and one set of tires in a 150-lap shoot-out, for the Junior, Senior and Masters Classes (there’s also a Sportsman Class for teams with multiple drivers).
In a great contest, Gamache covered the 150 laps in 2:04:53.681, 46.165 seconds better than 2nd place finisher Robert Young. They were the only two competitors to cover the full 150. Cabot Bigham also had a great race to earn a place on the podium. The Sportsman team of Charlie Doherty and Alex Vorrallis took third place in the overall standings. Steve Sarnecki – Master class winner – rounded out the top five. Young’s performance earned him the Senior Rotax crown, while Doherty and Vorrallis took the Sportsman title.
Although still a Junior Class competitor, Gamache is a seasoned driver – she’s honed her skills in the New England RMax Challenge at F1 Outdoors and other regional tracks, and started her career learning the ropes at F1 Boston. She’s also a member of Lyn St. James’ Women in the Winner’s Circle Foundation’s “Complete Driver Academy”.
