2013 SCCA Runoffs, E Production
SCCA National Championship Runoffs Road America Sept. 22, 2013 E Production 1990 Mazda RX-7 Sponsors: CureSarcoma.org/Electromotive/Fuel Safe/Hoosier/Mazda My transmission broke during the first qualifying session, leaving me with only a warm-up lap as my qualifying time. I started 34th out of a field of 35. I passed 18 cars during the race, earning the Hard Charger award. Moments of interest: 0:15 - the start, as i drive through a clout of transmission fluid. 10:00 - passing two cars in the Carousel. 15:35 - first gen. RX-7 stuffs it in the Kink. 16:20 - fixing the reverse lockout at 100mph. 21:00 - the car's still in the Kink. This seems dangerous for the workers. 25:13 - checking the mirror for the leaders, who I figure should be lapping me (but never did). 32:00 - my dumb move of the race. I'm lucky I didn't take out the other car. Stupid.
