Willow Springs International Raceway
SCCA San Diego Region Double Rational Race
February 26, 2011
My apologies to the San Diego Region for mis-labeling this a Cal Club race.
This is my Touring 1 race. I was on pole and I got a good start for the lead. Kyle Kelley gave me a great race and at a few points I thought I was going to finish second. I don't know how I held off his charge the whole race. He even got by me in traffic for a few turns, but traffic is like a two-edged knife. It giveth and it taketh, and I took the lead back.
The first 6:00 minutes are uneventful racing, but then Kyle starts putting on the pressure from his #79 UPR T1 Corvette Z06. At minute 11:00 it gets real dicey with a number of cars vying for position between Turn 2 and Turn three. Kyle and Launchbaugh in his Miata jostle a bit and Kyle make an amazing full-drift tire-smoking save up to Turn 4.
There are a number of cars to be seen in this video with some great racing for many other classes like HP, IT, Showroom Stock, STU and T3.
Here are the race results:
