2012 SCCA Runoffs Midwest-Bayless #22 H-Production Race Start
The Midwest-Bayless H-Production Fiat X1/9 podium hopes were dashed when
the car suddenly turned left under heavy braking into turn 5. Fortunately
it drove in a straight line afterwards, and even with a stop in the pits we
managed an 8th place finish.
Midwest-Bayless #22 at PITT Race - SCCA H-Production 2012
Matt and the #22 Fiat X1/9 battling an H-Production competitor in sloppy
wet conditions at the Cumberland Classic SCCA event June, 2012. The view
from the cockpit is about the same as the view from the camera. The
clarity of the video cleans up as the track begins to dry out.
Unfortunately the video card ran out about 5 laps from the end. I wasn't
able to make the pass. For those unfamiliar with SCCA racing, the faster cars which are seen quickly passing
us are racing in different (faster) classes in our group. They typically
have 2-to-6 second faster times
and can lap us at a track this length about 1/2 way through.
