TC America Sonoma Preview

After a successful debut season in the 2021 season of TC America powered by Skip Barber Racing School, the Skip Barber Race Team is set to build on their achievements of TC class champions and TCA third place finish. The 4-car team heads to wine country in Northern California as they set to tackle the 12-turn course at Sonoma Raceway for the opening round of TC America.

Kevin Boehm joins the Skip Barber Race Team as driver and lead engineer. Although new to the Skip Barber Race Team, the driver of the No. 9 CrowdStrike / AWS / Skip Barber HPD Civic Type-R is a veteran of the touring car series, winning the TCA class championship in 2020 and finishing runner-up last year in the TC class. Ken Fukuda returns to the Skip Barber Race Team after making his TC America debut at Watkins Glen and competing in the final race of the season at Indianapolis last year. Fukuda, Skip Barber Instructor and Director of the Skip Barber Formula Race Series, will pilot the No. 42 Skip Barber Racing School HPD Civic Type-R.

“I get to race a powerful Honda Civic Type-R built by HPD with an equally strong and selfless team in Skip Barber Racing School at one of the most technical tracks in the country in Sonoma Raceway, affectionally known to locals as Sears Points. I’ve taught there. Slept many moons under the bleachers. And Sears and I have some unfinished business. I can’t wait,” said Fukuda.

Last year’s 3-time TCA class race winner Carter Fartuch pilots the 2022 Gen 11 HPD Civic Si which made its first public appearance at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The Skip Barber Race Team will be the only team fielding the brand-new Civic Si in competition this year. Fartuch, Skip Barber Lead Instructor, will continue to carry the Skip Barber Racing School No. 16 in the TCA class. Colin Harrison rounds out the Skip Barber Race Team efforts and returns as a sophomore driver after his debut pro racing season with the Skip Barber Race Team in the TCA class. The driver of the No. 2 will be back behind the wheel of the 2021 HPD Civic Si in TCA competition.
