Just because there's a bit of sunshine doesn't mean we're slowing down at Haven Raceway! 

Throughout the summer we'll continue racing OCC GT1 on Wednesday nights (PS4002FK's legal as of May 20th as Retro Hawk substitute). On Sundays we will continue our Juniors program along with adult GT1 and GTP alternating with 4.5" stockers (first stocker race to be held June 3rd so lots of time to prepare!) 

 

With that, here's the most recent Sunday's results just to give a taste of the action on the Haven Hillclimb!

 

 With 12 entrants, this past Sunday's GT1 action at Haven was a fantastic day of close racing.

In Division One, Donny Macan proved to be dialed in with a 180 lap win over Al Rogers at 170. Waya Dute was a close third at 167 over John Phelan at 161, Flip Masters at 160, and Ray Dute at 158.

Advanced had two entrants in a race decided by one lap as Gary Sutorius defeated Ken Kanyok, 181 to 180.

Pro had four racers with Sean Sutorius grabbing the win at 196 laps over Mike Lear at 194. Ron Vincek was in that fight at 190, and Brian Lear borrowed the Dan Halfhill ride to wrap up with 181.

Another sunny Sunday and another fine day of racing as nine GT1 racers took to the Hillclimb for some tight competition.

In Division One, four racers made for a close race as John Phelan too the win at 166 laps. Flip Masters was a close second at 163 and Ray Dute came out ahead of his son Waya for the first time in months, 154 to 153.

The Advanced group was a fight for position between Dan Halfhill and Larry Kowicki, with Dan getting the win at 180 laps to Larry's 179. Gary Sutorius was right there with them at 175.

The two Pros to arrive gave each other a fight with Ron Vincek at 187 laps beating out Brian Lear at 181.

This coming Sunday will be a week off for our racers to celebrate Mother's Day, followed by the Haven Year End Enduro! Food, racing, and awards for the racers who made the show possible all through the season!

11 GT1's took to the track this Wednesday for a fun night of racing.

Division One had three entrants and Waya Dute picked up another solid win at 167 laps, assuring his place among the adults for the points season in the fall! Ray Dute had one of his better outings at 158 laps over Randy Sanders at 152.

Advanced was a close match up as once again Larry Kowicki and Gary Sutorius squared off with Mr. Cheetah 21, Larry Kowicki scoring another win at 186 laps over Gary's 181. Dan Halfhill picked up third with 176, running a PS4002FK in among the Retro Hawks as a trial run. Gary Vinyard continues his learning curve at 160 laps while Haley Halfhill's GT1 went up in smoke at 156 laps.

Pro belonged to Jeff Henes with a big 195 lap run over Brian Lear at 183. Jay Sabala had guide issues at the halfway point that cost him two ugly heats and ended up with 164 laps.

Don't forget racers that we won't be racing this coming Sunday in observance of Mother's Day but we'll be back to racing next Wednesday. See you then!

The Month of May means racing, even at Haven, as 11 GT1 runners showed up on Wednesday night.

In Division One, John Phelan scored another win going away at 164 laps over Randy Sanders's 155. Nick Kuhntz made the trip to Haven for his first appearance and ran 136 laps over reformed drag racer Crag Zurowski's first road race with 131.

Advanced was a Gary show with Gary Sutorius beating Gary Vinyard, 176 to 160 while Tim Burton faced handling and body issues that kept him to 157.

Pro was the closest fight of the evening with Mike Lear running 189 laps to take the win over Ron Vincek's 188, Brian Lear's 182, and Sean Sutorius's 180!

This weekend is all fun as the 2nd annual Season Ending Enduro and Awards take place on Saturday, with doors at 9 and racing at 11! See you there!
