Well, last night was the delayed conclusion to our 2016 Group 5 series, it was a 12 race event...  This was also the first time racing at our club tracks new location, thanks Dariusz for the space and the hospitality...  Seven of us showed up for this exciting evening of racing on a slightly re-configured track...  A good time was had by all...
 
The series finished with our Group 5 Champion Leon Luke dominating the competition, followed by yours truly in second place, and Pat Bodard following up in third...  Our Racer/Sideways based series, with thorough tech inspections, and a tight rules package, we learned how much fun it was to have such tight and competitive racing...
 
All the best...
Ron...
 
P.S. - Below are the posters with standings for each event, and we start with the Podium Finishers...
 
P.P.S. - A special thanks to my fellow Competition Committee members, Dariusz & Mark, for helping to create the perfect atmosphere for some great competition...

I used not like Group 5 cars but now I can't seem to get enough of them. LOL

Dennis, the performance of these Group 5 cars with minor tuning are absolutely incredible, with the BMW M1 being the dominant one...
