The field going up into


944 Spec Nationals Race Report:

Sportsmanship, close competition, and adverse weather were the themes that ran through the 2011 944 National Championships. Through rather diabolical conditions, at a track known for being treacherous in the wet, 944 Spec competitors proved that clean & close racing can be done, even at the highest levels of club racing. After some last minute pre-event attrition, 15 cars started the event, and through 4+ days of fierce on track competition, there was no damage from car to car contact, no passes under yellow, or DQ’s for any reason. Thanks to heads up driving and excellent trackside support from the Bennington Motorsports team, every last one of the cars was on track for the big event – a remarkable achievement. Kudos all around!

Gingerman Race weekend was a blast with seven 944-Spec Midwest drivers joining the fray.  The weekend started out with warmer than expected weather.  The 944 compound was convening to discuss pre-qualifying details when mother nature decided to pull up and lift the 944 tent complex, where she then proceeded to throw it at the 944 gang, with Ray Freundt's brand new rig valiantly taking the brunt of the hit.  This may have been an omen of things to come.

Norm, Susan, Steve and Paul after an exciting race day

NASAAZ summer events are always exciting as we try to beat the heat by starting at daylight and wrapping up by noon.  Track temps. rise quickly making it a challenge as the traction and tire temps become a factor.  June 4-5 was no exception, with a qualifying race on Saturday and race on Sunday.  The field was literally reversed more than once with great racing and a little bit of drama too.
