In an attempt to get some extra seat time to help improve my performance in the Skip Barber National Series this season, I was very fortunate to be given the opportunity to race in the Formula Ford 1600 support races during the Formula One race in Montreal. On Monday, June 6, 2011, I tested at Mosport International Raceway with Brian Graham Racing to try to quickly prepare for the race and learn the car. The test went well and I was really excited about the upcoming race. I had never been to an F1 race before, so no matter what my own results would end up being, I knew I’d still have a blast watching the best drivers in the world.
