March 19 2015

Big turnout tonight for Thursday night LMP racing at Buena Park Raceway… 20 racers!

The racers were split up into 11 for the B main and 9 for the A main.

 

Since the B main is the one that really matters I'll cover that first. The B had a few recent additions and Dave Cantwell coming back after missing a few weeks, plus Race Liberante making his debut on the BPR flat track. As with any race where there are sit-outs it's tough to gauge who really has the overall lead, but the individual heats had a number of different drivers taking top spot in this heat or that. In the end Larry Wood and Max Bowers both had 299 laps, unfortunately Larry had half a track on Max and took the top spot (in case you didn't notice… Max is writing this). Just giving you crap Larry, it was a great run!

The podium for the B Main was Larry Wood first, Max Bowers in second, and a strong third place finish by Tom De Avilia.

The A main was a bit unusual for the Thursday night races, 9 racers meant even the A had a sit-out. With plenty of turn marshals coming from the B main the race had minimal track calls, if you deslotted you really lost a lot of time as everyone else kept cranking away! While there weren't any track records set in terms of lap times just about everyone was hitting the 3.8 sec mark or better on black. Along the way Tim Hould and Mickey Griffen ran into trouble and both dropped out. More than one driver literally ran their tires down to the rims, Sam Rackham changed tires between heats and Bill Vanderziel commented at the end of the race that he didn't think he could slide a sheet of paper under the rear of his chassis.

With just 30 seconds to go in the final heat we had a three way tie with Bill in a very close fourth, but a couple of late race shunts sorted out the finish order. Vic Dubrowsky took first, Mike Kravitz second, and Sam Rackham held onto third.

Great night of racing!

There's word that CoastalAngler1 is making the trek all the way from Florida to take on the Thursday night LMP crew next week, have a safe trip and see you at the track!

There was some questions about some of the cars Thursday night. What are the rules for these cars and should they be tech?

I think there is "supposed to be" a minimum tire, but we never seem to tech. I guess if your car isn't dragging the track you are good to go.

I made 2 new cars just to come play with the BPR Rockers! :to_become_senile: 

 

 I need a set of gears when I get there Wednesday evening...hopefully I can borrow a soldering station to install a motor - there are no more 12:42 72P gears left in Florida...kinda hard to set the mesh and solder in a motor without gears. :unknw:   

 

C11 .025/.025 / Audi LMP / Evil9 / 12:42 72P / JK 87100PP - tested, works great.

C11 .030/.025 / Audi LMP / Hawk7 / Need gears! / JK 8700PP - solder motor and hit the track.

tech inspection ready...maybe wednesday I learn some mods for the flat track?

 

I'm pretty sure the A Main folks are safe  :D ...But you never know  :ph34r:

Thanks for the great memories!  Maybe I get another assignment out west? - can't wait to return.  Thanks Eddie for the help at the parts counter and for track prep - that flat track was fast for sure.  Someone beat that Vic guy already!

I got quite of few of those for my home track but too far to travel on a Thursday night from the Valley.  My  Chauffeur  has to work the next day :shok:
