A mix of Radicals, Miatas, Wolfs, a Porsche and even a Corvette made up the 17 driver race on Friday. Although the Bracket Race isn’t necessarily a race against the other cars as much as it is a test of consistency, a few of the racers got competitive and ended up letting speed get the best of them. John Morris, driving a Michelin Challenge Corvette, was in first place when he was passed by Porsche driver Terry Lubrano. John then blew out of his bracket when attempting to take back his position and pass Terry under the Michelin bridge. Prince Oliver could have won it all, but he too blew his bracket time when at the checkered flag he had to make sure he was the first across the finish line, barely missing the back of John Morris in a very close call. The first five finishers, Prince Oliver, John Morris, Bruce Kember, Terry Lubrano, and Jim Balestrieri were all disqualified for breaking out of their bracket. The following three finishers showed their patience and consistency by staying within their times earning Denis O’Leary first place in his SR8 followed by Kelvin Bloom, and Rookie driver David McConnell finishing 3rd.
Another bracket race was held on Saturday and it seemed the guys wised up a bit, as only 2 of the 10 racers broke their bracket times. Jim Balestrieri and Craig Kember crossed the finish line 1st and 2nd, but both broke their bracket times. Close behind, Lee Mixon took 1st, Dennis Russell 2nd and Mark Allan took 3rd . They were followed by Teddy Landau (4), Bruce Kember (5), Trevor Allen (6), Michael Von Quilich (7), and Gregg Gorski (8).
14 drivers stuck around for Sunday’s Enduro Race. The 50-minute race was run as a Bracket Race; each driver provided their own bracket times which then calculated their mandatory pit times. Most drivers ran as individuals, but there were two teams consisting of Jim Balestrieri / Denis Kane and John Thompson / Gregg Gorski. In the end, Craig Kember won completing 14 laps with a finish time of 51:44:644.
