Speedvision GT World Challenge Race
Sep, 29 2000
After a mere 18 month in driver's ed and PCA club racing my friend Hank Cohn was really looking forward to participate in his first SCCA pro race. He had been talking about this race all year and I had always joked about being one of his pit crew whenever he had mentioned it. Before long....... that day is finally here, the qualifying was conducted on Sep 28th, a 20 minute qualifying session around the track determined the starting position on the grid. Sep 29th was the big day, a 50 minute race determined the winner of the event.
There were a variety of cars in this pro race, Audi S4, Corvettes, Vipers, Mustangs, Camaro, BMW M3, 996 GT3, 993 supercup car, 993 etc. Both Hank and Corey completed the race without any serious scratches. It still amazes me that both cars made it back in one piece after seeing the massive crowd of cars at the standing start. Pro racing is serious racing, there is no preservation here. Ever heard of "rubbing is racing"? That term really applies here.
................and I thought people play
rough in PCA club racing.
very much want to see Hank and Corey make their way to Las Vegas for round
8 of Speedvision GT world challenge race at the end of October, not sure
how we are going to raise the $7000 we need to get the cars entered in
that race yet. Anyone out there would like to sponsor two race cars
for $7000? It is televised!
