As rounds 7 and 8 of the US Formula 2000 Championship came to a close, Anders Krohn once again proved he was the quickest driver in the field, after having won the first race at the very technical Mid Ohio Raceway and stormed through the field to take fourth in the second race. Anders continues to pull away in the championship battle.“It was a special weekend where we dominated race one, but starting at the back of the field in race two prevented us from repeating the feat.” Anders said.

Qualifying for Race 1 went according to plan for the Andersen Racing crew and Anders Krohn driving the No.9 Van Diemen race car. Anders was able to set a fast lap a full seven tenths up on the next competitor, and also crushed the previous track record with his time of 1m24,909sec. Said Krohn just after qualifying “In the first part of qualifying I was not happy with my car, but after some changes in the pits, I managed to put one quick lap that no one could match.”

Race 1 went Anders’ way as he managed to stay in the lead through two safety-car periods, and won the race by 2,5 seconds in a two lap dash to the checkered after another full course caution was completed. Multiple accidents were the cause of the safety-car periods, and only a handful of green flag laps were driven. “This is one of those races you just need to complete, but don’t enjoy too much. Winning is allways good and we showed our pace by pulling out huge gaps after every full course yellow, but sitting behind the safety-car for the majority of the race is never fun.” Anders commented after winning his fifth race of the season.

In Qualifying for Race 2, rain fell hard and Anders put on the rain tires for the first time in his Formula 2000 career. However, the stint was short lived when he made an unusual mistake and went off track. Therefore, he did not get any laps in, and would have to start towards the end of the field in the second race of the Mid Ohio weekend. “It was a stupid mistake, and I want to apologize to the team. With the mistake already done, now I just need to focus on doing a good job in the race.” A clearly disappointed Krohn said.

Race 2 was to become one of the most entertaining races of the season as Anders had his work cut out by having to start 29th on the grid. Quickly after the green flag dropped, Anders started working his way through the field with impressive speed and passing moves. Half way through the race he was up to 9th when the safety-car was put on track. Going green again, Anders made his way up to 4th and quickly caught the leading trio. But unfortunately as he was ready to attack the lead pack, the checkered flag fell and he had to settle for 4th. It was an impressive showing by Anders Krohn, storming through the field to gain 25 places in 10 green flag laps. “This was the most fun race I have ever driven! I pushed 100% every inch of the race, and we made it all the way up to fourth. I made some good passes early on, and kept going. It’s a shame we didn’t have three or four more laps.” Ended Krohn, who also set the best race lap almost a second clear of anyone else.

Another impressive weekend completed for Anders Krohn, who is sponsored by Trallfa Industries, Colosseum Dental and Kruse Smith. He is pulling away at the top of the Championship and now has a 102 point gap to the nearest rival.

Next up for Anders Krohn is a symposium with IndyCar team Rahal Letterman Racing, where he will meet Bobby Rahal and several of his key staff. “It’s a good opportunity for me to learn and get feedback from the very top of motorsports. I enjoyed my last meeting with them, and I look forward to the upcoming one. It can help me a lot for the future, so I am thrilled to get this opportunity.”

Rounds 9&10 of the US Formula 2000 Championship will be held at famous Road America in Wisconsin on August 2-3. He will then be seeking to further extend his points lead in his rookie season of Formula 2000 racing. “I would like to thank my sponsors once again for supporting me through this adventure. They make it happen, and I appreciate it beyond words. Now I want to prove their support right once again, by doing a good job at Road America.” Said Anders Krohn.
