Retro Coupes on the Aristocrat – 8/21/18

A field of eight MVH regulars pitted their retro Coupes against the American Aristocrat and each other this past Tuesday evening.


As usual, John Weaver was turning fast laps and jumped out to an early lead. By the mid-point of the race he had logged 142 laps and held a ten-lap advantage over Bob “Woody” Hazelwood. In third place, Ernie “The Ernstigator” LaChance trailed Woody by two laps and held a three-lap lead on Rich Girvin who was just one lap up on fifth place Ray Lee. Three laps back Dan Savage and Richard Payne were separated by just one lap as Dick Griffin closed out the field.


After the move to the shorter and faster inside lanes, Weaver opened his lead up while posting the fastest lap of the evening at 4.436 on the purple lane and ultimately took the win. Woody put a little distance between himself and Ernie as he cruised to the 2nd step of the podium. Ray Lee found some speed in the second half, got around Rich G and was closing in on Ernie but came up less than two laps shy of a podium finish. Richard P and Dan had the closest race of the evening as Richard got by Dan to claim 6th place by just 6 track sections.


Finishing order, laps completed, best-lap time and best-lap lane:

            1)      John Weaver             295/24    4.436   PU

            2)      Woody Hazelwood    270/17    4.899   BK

Another great report Dave. Please remind Carlo to adjust the guide spacing for the sovereign. I only set the the guide spacing for .015.

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.
