Ed Nazarian racing his RRE Super Touring EVO 9 at Buttonwillow #13CW, on Saturday April 17, 2010. At this weekend event Super Touring was mixed with a bunch of lower classed cars. Typically ST2 is mixed with SU, ST1, ASC, GTS, AIX and AI. This time around GTS was in a separate group with BMWCCA, so a bunch of lower classed cars were mixed with them instead. Ed’s group consisted of Super Unlimited, Super Touring, Honda Challenge, Performance Touring, and Spec E30. Basically, most of the cars in his group were significantly slower. On top of that they had a really big group, nearly 50 racecars. So maneuvering through traffic played a significant role that weekend, which resulted in slow lap times. Ed was also held up quite a bit by a Super Unlimited FFR GTM-R prototype when he was battling one of the Mazda GTs. By the time Ed got around that SU racecar he ran out of time. Ed got 6th place on Saturday out of 10 ST2 racecars.
Unfortunately we couldn’t get the camera to record on Sunday so this race from Saturday is all we have to show. It’s really unfortunate because this Saturday race fails in comparison to how intense Sunday’s race was. On Sunday Ed and one of the Mazda GTs were battling intensely. They exchanged positions many times throughout that race, while maneuvering through traffic. Ed was able to pass that Mazda GT towards the end, and ended up passing another Mazda GT in the meantime. He caught up to the leaders and had them in sight, but ran out of time. He ended up getting 5th place on Sunday out of 10 ST2 racecars.
