2014 Season Concludes, Nominations Open Print E-mail

Sunday 10/19 saw a successful closing to the 2014 Championship season with DawgtoberFast drawing over 80 entries on a balmy day at Shelton.  In competition highlights, a tight FTD battle ensued with Wes Snaza narrowly besting John Burford (both in ex-FSAE cars).  PRO1 went to Bill Zerr over Glen Hernandez, and Geoff Clark was in his usual spot atop ST3.  ST2 saw an incredibly tight race between Nick Ruiz and Greg Lee, with Nick coming out on top by .005 seconds, indexed.  The UW FSAE crew had a great turnout of workers to support this event, and competitors enjoyed four runs, on-site concessions, and a 4pm finishing time.  Many drivers took advantage of the Rent-A-Student program to make more than an average number of laps; ultimate hardcore Ivan Rouzanov totaled 16 runs for the day.

Sim Has Quickest Indexed Time at Enduro Lite Print E-mail
Written by Karen Babb   
Tuesday, 26 August 2014 21:47

Joey Sim, running ST3 on an STX index, won his class and posted the best indexed time at BEAC's Enduro Lite on Sunday August 24th.  Sim's win in ST3 came at the expense of Geoff Clark, who was in the familiar but not quite as strong Taco Time car for this event. Steven Hui in the M3 rounded out the trophies in 3rd.

Another strong performer was Bill Zerr, driving the Focus this time, taking Pro1 with narrow margin over Dieter Beldi.  Zerr's margin over Beldi in the season points standings is currently at about half a point out of 400.  Glen Hernandez, who missed Enduro Lite due to being out of town for a Corvette gathering, is a close 3rd for the season, with Kevin Dietz right behind.

Joe Burroughs took Novice AM in a Miata, and William Fanchier topped Novice PM in a VW GTI.  The HHR crew was out again, with many of their guys running Novice and Joshua Herget taking a 2nd place trophy.  HHR "pack leader" Dave Lawniczak had to fall back to a buddy's car when his malfunctioned, and ran Time Only.  Once again at the end of the day, the HHR horde demonstrated the cone hauling capabilities of their cars.  Perhaps only the memorable William Batts cop car has been able to fetch more cones in a single load.

Full results are available here: http://www.wwscc.org/event_results/2014/wwscc-11.html

Next WWSCC events are Torque Steerers' Understeer and Oversteer at Packwood September 27-28, and don't forget DawgtoberFast at Shelton on October 19th.  The run/work order season schedule for the Council is here: http://www.wwscc.org/checklists-a-instructions/190-runwork-order-cycle-for-2014.html
