Round #5 of 12 - 2018

 

Race day was a rainy Sunday that made us glad to be indoors at  P1 Raceway in Winter Garden to race on Marcus Ramos's fast hillclimb.

The B Main in Can-Am was a good race with the most of the field dicing it up and fairly cleanly as well. As the heats wore on it became apparent that barring disaster it would be Doc and Jay taking the two move up spots into the A main.

Can-Am A main drivers panel - L to R - Jay, Doc, Tony, Jeff, Terry, Shawn, Marcus, Ed

 

In the Can-Am A main we saw Jeff take an early lead with Doc, Terry, and Jay all within striking distance. Tony dropped out after a few heats with technical problems. As the race progressed Ed and Marcus started gaining back some laps. Going into the final heat Jeff was still leading but Marcus was not far back and he was still gaining back laps. When time was up Jeff prevailed with about 1/2 a lap over Marcus. Terry took the final and well deserved podium spot for third.

The race was run in round robin format.
 
From the start we saw the Jeff Bonanno and his Gt-coupe jump out to an early overall race lead .
 
In Can-Am plus Doc Dougherty was the man to beat taking the win in class and 4th overall. Tony P and Grant Goerner mixed it up for while until a bearing failed in Grant's car after hit to wall in turn one in the eleventh heat.
 
Jay Guard ran fastest overall on the lower three lanes and would go on to finish in second with half a lap over Terry Tawney in third.

Stockcars

Concours - Ed Hoffman, Marcus Ramos, Jay Guard

 

The final race of the day was stockcars. This is the first time we have run this class at P1 on the hillclimb. The big stockcars handled the hillclimb great and it turned into a really fun race.

 

From the start we saw the always fast Jeff Bonanno set the pace for the rest of the field. A really good race emerged between Terry, Doc, Ed, Marcus, and Jay. In the end Marcus came in second and Doc had a good drive for third.Jeff would go on to set fast lap of the race and take the win for the third time of the day.
