VSCDA ELVF XXVIII Formula Vee 50th Anniversary Race
The Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival XXVIII six lap Formula Vee feature race
on Sunday, September 8th, 2013 at Road America.
I started 14th out of a field of 31 cars and finished 8th. This was an
incredibly fun drive, with tons of drafting and passing and a wild finish
where 4 of us fight for that 8th place spot. Pay close attention on lap two
as we approach Canada Corner, where John Kennelly takes a spin and there
are several close calls as cars take evasive action.
After a pass on the straight between turns 4 & 5 on Lap 3, the video skips
forward to lap 4 at turn 5 since I didn't have a position change and was
just chasing down the cars in the 6, 7, and 8 spots. What follows is a
lesson in what not to do in momentum cars on drafting tracks; several times
I try to get by Jerry Baker in the blue #18 Lynx in places where I'd have
to force the issue if I'd wanted to make the pass (and this is vintage
racing, so we don't do that!). All I ended up doing was killing my speed
and getting passed for the trouble. I finally figure it out on the last
lap, bide my time and make a last ditch drafting pass climbing the hill to
the finish. Ricky del Rosario, Mitch Beiser, Jerry Baker and myself all
finish within 3/10ths of a second of each other.
I want to thank Mike Kitzmiller one last time for coming to my rescue the
day before the event and renting me an engine for my Lynx, otherwise I
would have just been a spectator all weekend. He, Eric Coppock, Don Carone
and Garrett Van Camp installed the engine in the paddock Thursday night and
it was flawless all weekend. Hats off to you gentlemen, it was truly

Start Position: 16th, Finish Position: 16th
Location: Sydney Motorsport Park (Grand Prix Circuit)
This is my first year in any form of motorsport so don't be too critical ;)
Made a bit of a setup change for this one. It felt better, but I was too
conservative at the start and lost touch with the pack. Had a good fight

First start of and Racing Formula Vee Engine in over 30 years
I bought a Formula Vee racing engine that had been built by Kenny Brown in
1978 but never started. It was locked it had gotten water in one cylinder
and I had to put new rings in that cylinder. I installed it in to a 60's

found the fuel pump problem as a leaky fuel filter sucking air.
First Formula Vee Drive - PA Hill Climb/SCCA Time Trials (Spring Jefferson at Summit Point)
1st place, 1st time driving the Maloney Racing Mk 2.5 Lazer and 1st TT
event. Thanks Hughie for all the generous support!
This was my final set of laps which were good enough for 1st place that
weekend (after only getting to run the first day). I was only a couple
tenths off the lap record held by my friend Chris Elwell.
My main priority was to learn the limits of the car without incident.
