Round two in the Formula Twelve Hundred Drivers Association Championship went to Shannonville.  A grid of 17 cars took to the track.  Qualifying, as expected, saw a tight group up front with Michael Iamundi leading a group of 8 cars within 2.3 seconds.

Race one had a four car break away, with Iamundi, Spencer Todd, Andrew McMurray, and Phil Wang driving nose to tail for the majority of the race.  Iamundi led every lap, but had to fight hard to keep McMurray behind him, especially during a hard last lap pass attempt in the second to last corner.  Iamundi took the win by just 0.1 seconds.  Todd, Wang, and David Taylor closed out the top five.  Kevin Deevey held off Dave Aird for the Master’s win.

Race two had a number of cars going off track early in the race, spreading out the field.  Iamundi and Todd would keep their noses clean and separating from the field.  Iamundi took the win, closely followed by Todd.  McMurray, Wang, and Taylor finished the top five.  Deevey would again hold off Aird in a close race for the Master’s win.

Race three showed to be much closer up front, with Iamundi, McMurray, Taylor, and Wang all running tight up front.  Todd would be knocked out of the lead group and finish deep in the field with an ailing car.  Steve Bamford and Shane Viccary would run nose to tail all race in a battle for fifth.  McMurray took the final win of the weekend, with Iamundi, Taylor, and Wang all closely in tow.  Bamford edged out Viccary for the fifth spot.  Aird took away the final victory off a closely following Deevey.
