Brody Goble Completes Formula BMW Americas Test at Miller Motorsports Park
April 26 – This weekend ten Snap-on Stars of Karting drivers were chosen to complete an orientation and lapping session in the Formula BMW Americas series race car. The drivers – Neil Albierco, CJ Cronis, Brody Goble, Michael Hogg, Miles Maroney, Spencer Pigot, Scott Rossi, Stefan Rzadzinski, Joey Wimsett, and David Zippie – spent a busy day working between their regular duties in Snap-on Stars of Karting series and the Formula BMW garage.

“I greatly enjoyed the challenge that is involved in driving a Formula BMW car. All of the additional elements that separate a go-kart and a race car were very easy to identify. The chassis, suspension, and seating position was all new. I am grateful to both Snap-on Stars of Karting and Formula BMW Americas for the experience.”
The program, a cooperative effort between Snap-on Stars of Karting and Formula BMW Americas, was a first-of-its-kind experience that everyone agreed was of great value. All of the drivers did a great job adapting to the new vehicle and this experience gives them an insight into a potential future.
Following the on track activity, Formula BMW Americas and Snap-on Stars of Karting spent the evening at a catered reception that was held at the Formula BMW Service Center.
The Snap-on Stars of Karting and Formula BMW Americas would like to thank all of the drivers, families, and teams that contributed to allowing this opportunity to take place.
