Race Highlights MAY 2018

May Race Weekend kicked off with the Andretti (B) 4-mile road course. There were large grids for both divisions during the weekend: 16 Light Sport Racers and 10 Sports Cars. It was great seeing so many LSR rookies competing with five on Friday and six on Saturday!

Patrick Liddy, Mark Rohrwasser, and Ron Fletcher all set new records on the Andretti (B) configuration. Liddy, who drove his Wolf SM Turbo, shaved off roughly 4 seconds from his previous record achieving an impressive 2:31.971; what an incredible improvement! Mark Rohrwasser in his Wolf SM put up a time of 2:41.331, 0.36 seconds ahead of the previous record holder Ron Eckhardt. In the Miata Division, Ron Fletcher beat Gregg Gorski’s 3:19.405 with a lap of 3:16.465. Congratulations to Patrick, Mark and Ron!

We want to offer a big welcome to our new member, Keim Tjong. Keim raced in the Miata Division on Saturday and finished in second place – Congratulations!

Spring Mountain was pleased to welcome U.S. Senator for Nevada, The Honorable Dean Heller. Senator Heller joined us on Friday for lunch and the duration of the race. He answered questions related to the Spring Mountain expansion and spoke of his passion for seeing John Morris’ vision succeed. We greatly appreciate Senator Heller taking time out of his busy schedule to visit with us.

June’s race will feature a new configuration, Fittipaldi (F). This new configuration utilizes Concord rather than the run to the Bowl. This little change is sure to make Slice even more challenging. Do you have what it takes to set the lap record?
