The R1 Pro Championship win this season will make it 6 straight Pro Championships for Jeff in the competitive R1 class. Jeff did not stop there, 2012 SCCA Solo National Championships Kiesel crushed the E Modified class yet again earning his 6th straight championship win in the E Modified Class and his 7th straight National Championship win! Kiesel took the win by 5.419 seconds over his co-driver in the same car. As if that was not enough, Kiesel’s wife Shawn Kiesel crushed the E Modified Ladies class by 5.091 seconds earning her 4th E Modified Championship and 5th Overall Championship.
“The car performed flawlessly and we had no issues at all,” stated Jeff. “We chased some set up issues at the Pro and really got the car to work well by our third session. Could have dialed a little more push out of the car for Nationals and potentially found some time but overall I am very happy with the car. We did have some frustrations while out there with the new rule changes that were put in place banning most of our new aero development. These new rules came out 12 days before our first event out there, so we did a lot of last minute scrambling to get the car in compliance with the new rules. Once again our sponsors came through for us and made this another successful year, our sponsors are: Goodyear Tire, Racing Beat, Pilot Air Freight, Garrett Turbo, Carvin Guitars, Maxima Racing Oils, Injector Dynamics. I was also real happy to see such great driving from my Wife Shawn and my co-driver dad Mark.”
