RACE HIGHLIGHTS April 2019

April’s Race Weekend at Club Spring Mountain was full of energy and excitement as 25 drivers spanning both divisions raced under beautiful clear blue skies on the Fittipaldi (F) 3.4-mile course. After Friday’s races, members and their guests were treated to a dinner prepared by Chef Susan to be specially paired with ultra-premium Blue Marble Cocktails. Thank you to all race participants and to our sponsor for such a fun filled weekend!

Some highlights of the weekend include Indy Al Miller in his Wolf GB08SM Turbo, who established a new track record during Friday’s LSR race #2! The Sports Car Division displayed consistent, clean racing with intense competition throughout, especially by Walter Lucchi, Mark Saroyan and Brian Archer – great job guys! We would also like to commend Brian Reynolds in the LSR Rookie class for his improvement and continued participation against seasoned racers; we hope to see more rookies in the near future to compete against Reynolds.

Let’s give a special “Welcome back!” to Ethan Stone who placed 3rd in the LSR1 class. It’s always a pleasure seeing members return to our Club race series. “I really enjoy it here. It’s a great group. I have been a member for 10 years or so” – Ethan Stone, Club Spring Mountain Member.
