August Race Report [Video]
Spec Miata and Spec E46 Race One
In the lone E46, Matt Eastling led the five Miatas across the line for the first race of the day and behind him, Bill Miller, Keith Williamson, and Tal Tsfany went three-wide through turn one. Miraculously, they didn’t make contact and Miller emerged in the lead.
Miller was quickly under pressure from Williamson causing him to lock up a couple of times in the braking zone at turn six. It became a two horse race and the Williamson stayed glued to the rear bumper of Miller’s Miata. On lap eight, Williamson made the move for the lead into turn one and Miller was unable to fight back as he picked up a drive through penalty for running wide at the exit of turn six.
At the end of the race, Tsfany began to close the gap to Williamson, but he ran out of laps to make the move and finished three tenths away from the win. Bill Griffin finished fourth and Miller finished fourth.
Downforce Class Race One
Six Radicals and one Formula 4 car took part in the first downforce race of the day and lap one was full of chaos. Conrad Litel and Jon Brunut made contact into turn one and Bill Karrh spun into the barriers at the approach to the carousel so the full course yellow was deployed.
Justin Rosenblum led the cars to green at the restart and was passed by Barry Davidson into turn one. Kevin Clifford went on to pass Rosenblum and Davidson to grab the win. Brunut recovered from his lap one incident to finish second and Rosenblum fended off Nicholas D’Orlando in the final laps to secure third in race one.
Spec Miata and BMW E30 Race Two
Williamson started on pole following his win in race one and disappeared out front during the early stages of the race. He came under pressure at the end of the race but Miller couldn’t get close enough to attempt an overtake for the lead. The rest of the field remained spread out as Eastling opted to start from the back of the field in the lone E46. He worked his way up to third overall at the checkered flag.
Downforce Class Race Two
In race two, D’Orlando wasted no time in overtaking a pair of Radicals on the first run down to turn one to take second place. Rosenblum led until the Safety Car was deployed for Bill Karrh whose Radical SR3 came to a halt at the exit of turn one.
Davidson took advantage of the green, white, checkered finish and went from third to first in one lap to claim the win ahead of Rosenblum and D’Orlando.
