The Mygale cars, powered by Honda, earned an impressive one-two finish at the F1600 Formula F Championship Series race at Virginia International Raceway. Brandon Newey (Bryan Herta Autosport with Curb Agajanian/Mygale/Honda) took home the victory on Sunday, while teammate Garett Grist (Bryan Herta Autosport with Curb Agajanian/Mygale/Honda) claimed the second place trophy during the Series’ first race weekend of the season.

Crossing the finish line side-by-side in a photo finish, Newey and Grist took the checkered flag with only a .042-second margin of victory. Just a day earlier, the duo earned a third-place (Newey) and fourth-place (Grist) finish.

“The Mygale was very fast right out of the box at Virginia,” said Newey. “It was responsive to all the changes that we made over the weekend. I am looking forward to continue developing the car.”

Grist agreed, adding, “The Mygale chassis has been amazing to drive. The car has been easy to tune and we have developed a fantastic baseline.”

Steve Bamford (Rice Race Prep/Mygale/Honda) also brought home a sixth-place finish for the Mygale running, making it three in the top six on Sunday’s race.

The Mygale North America team will again aim for the podium as the F1600 Series heads to Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Connecticut on May 25-26, 2012.
