Retro Coupes on the Sovereign – 6/5/18


The Sovereign small 07.jpg


In another rare appearance, retro Coupes returned to the purple American Sovereign for the first time in over a year. Seven racers ran in the 4/4 format with three marshals to cover the nine turns.


Ray Lee and Peter Lentros were in a battle for the lead while the rest of the field ran somewhat off their pace but similarly close. At the mid-point of the race it was Ray and Peter out in front while a couple of laps back everyone else was on the same lap.


By the time the checkered flag flew, Ray had just over a one lap lead on Peter to take the win. Woody Hazelwood trailed them by 6 laps but just squeezed past Dan Savage to claim 3rd place by 6 track sections. One lap back Richard Payne held off Rich Girvin to claim 5th place by 7 track sections while Dick Griffin closed out the field.


Ray logged the fastest lap (and only sub-8 second time of the evening) followed by Woody and Dan.


Finishing Order, laps recorded, best overall lap time and lane:

            1)      Ray Lee                      170/19    7.868     OR       

            2)      Peter Lentros             169/12    8.179     OR

            3)      Woody Hazelwood     163/23    8.016     OR
