For March Race Weekend, drivers ran the Clark 3.22-mile configuration. Four of our members tested their new Radical Sportcars throughout the weekend. John Morris and Jeffrey Cheng searched for the limits of their new SR8s, and father and son, Jim and Sean Mason, showcased their new SR3s. Along with the Masons, we had one more father and son duo on the track; Indy Al and AJ Miller, who both won pole in their respective classes during Saturday’s qualifying. We would also like to welcome our youngest Member, Brixton Rambo! He attended his first race weekend and was able to see his dad atop podium both days. Congratulations to Brandon and Chelse Rambo on their new bundle of joy!
It was great to see large grids in our LSR division over the weekend. 20 racers on Friday and 17 on Saturday made for an exciting weekend in the LSR division. Denis O’Leary, Doug Ramirez, Mark Rohrwasser, Ron Eckhardt and Indy Al Miller had a fantastic battle on Friday. Saturday was much the same. It was truly a sight to see such a tight string of race cars coming through East track’s esses! We also had Ron Fletcher, Mitch Bishop and Shahin Mobine having their own battles throughout the weekend. Large grids and large groups battling made for a phenomenal weekend of racing in the LSR division.
The Miata race was especially exciting on Saturday, with great battles and some impressive off-track excursions. Saturday was Steve Hardie’s first race and it was an exciting debut. During the race Steve went off in turn 2 but managed to maintain control and return the track without incident. Sounds of excitement poured from the tower commending his remarkable car control. Congratulations Steve and welcome to Club Racing!
