The GRRR Series wrapped up at The Raceway.biz in Melbourne. The event as usual was for CanAm, NASCAR on the hillclimb, and F1.

Entries were a little low as the loss of Doc and Grant did not help things. Also absent was Danny Zona who had already sewn up the series overall title. Maybe the cold weather may have helped to keep him away.

Do to the lack of track marshalls (a hillclimb takes a minimum of 4-5) the mains were run in a couple of different formats than usual.

First up was qualifying for CanAm and Brian Ambrose turned top time with a blazing 4.217 to set a new record. He was followed by Terry Tawney 4.271 and Jeff Bonnano 4.318.

Jeffs third place car. Jeff is a new scratch builder and doing an excellent job at it.

NASCAR was up next and we go by qualifying order based on your finish in CanAm. The race was between Jeff and Terry after Brian hit a car in the bank and sheared the post off his borrowed tonyp NASCAR.

Jeff Bonnano 210
Terry Tawney 209
Matt Bowman 203
Don Bonnano 200
Tracy Dickinson 198
Ray Lee 198
Jay Guard 197
Ralph Josey 192
Brian Ambrose 132 DNF

Dons third place car. Great drive by one of the Geezer set.

Well thats it for another great year of retro racing. Thanks go out to Doc and Grant for running this circus. Thanks to Jay Guard for taking over the job of tech inspector and Jeff Bonnano the points.

Next up is our annual Christmas non points pizza race and bull session at Gregs South Daytona Track on December 8th. CanAm and stock cars on the road course. Pizza, pizza, pizza!
