Great results at 2011 PCA Club Race – Road Atlanta.

It was the worst of times.

It was the best of times.

Things weren’t looking so good when on lap 3 of qualifying my rear tire belts broke and the tire went out of shape. Without completing qualifying I was starting back in the pack.

It should only get better, right?

Shaun qualified 4th. On turn 1 Shaun got squeezed and spun. Several cars went off, including me.  I turned into the grass and drove around. No damage.  After the field passed, I re-entered dead last.  

It should only get better, right?

It did. I patiently worked my way up through traffic, making up 20 positions and finished 7th overall, 2nd in Class.  

The winner of my class (Piera),  is a semi-pro driver who won races last year in Patron.  

I’m happy with my result.  


This weekends results:

Shaun

Big Thanks to Gianni, JF, Lionel and Al for all their tireless work.  

We couldn’t have been competitive without their efforts.  Gianni as always, found the ‘Secret Formula’ in the set up that got us to the front.

It was a great time.

Cheers
Jim
