Project SI – Race 5 Update – SMF Win!!!

by on April 26, 2011
 

Coming off the sweep of events 3 and 4 the target on my back for event 5 was bigger than ever.  With the competition in the class stepping up to a bigger tire and new suspension, the work would be cut out for the project SI.   For event 5 the Snake River SCCA club made its way back to the Dealer’s Auto Auction of Idaho lot, which is one of the larger venues the club has to offer.   The course design for Saturday’s event featured wide gates which had drivers focusing more on the driving line than avoiding cones for the next gate.  After a fun morning session and getting the tire pressures settled in the afternoon runs started with finally some heat on the track and in the tires.  Each run was getting faster and faster, however so was the competitions.   The last run of the day and the pressure was on to extend the lead and put more of a hurdle in front of the Mazda Speed3, with a little error in one corner I pushed a bit harder the rest of the course and end up running a 33.268.   That time kept me in 1st place for the SMF Class, now 4 wins a row!!!  There were 76 different racers this weekend, out of that group I finished 13th in RAW time and 8th in PAX times.
