Sunday's D3 Hardbody races at Buena Park Raceway was another record producing day!
The GTP race saw a new fast lap of 4.839 by Marco Carvalho. This eclipsed the recent record of 4.889 set by Keith Tanaka last month. This was probably the fastest ever GTP D3 hardbody race as 4 racers recorded fast laps under 5 seconds!
Hector Gozalez won this race with Marco 2nd and Keith 3rd. The "Racer Handicap" podium had Dave Decesare 1st, Hector 2nd and Marco 3rd.
In the Mixed race, Doug Jacks won while setting a new total lap record for the Porsche 911/934 racing class of 250 laps. Doug drove a "Gonzo" pan articulating 934 car to victory with Keith 2nd (Trans Am Firebird) and Jim Lane 3rd (under 2 liter Trans Am VW bug).
The "Racer Handicap" podium had Doug 1st, Michael Kale 2nd (Nissan GTR) and Keith 3rd.
Thanks to Jim Watterson (and Eddie) for their support of D3 Hardbody Racing at Buena Park Raceway.
Thanks to our race director: Victor Dubrowsky.
Here's the race/photo report: https://socald3.smug...-races-9-19-21/
The next D3 Hardbody races on Sunday, Oct. 17th. BPR opens at 10 am, GTP race starts at noon SHARP! followed by a quick lunch, then the Mixed race.
An extra race day in October. The 5th Sunday (Oct. 31st) we'll run a "mixed" race first, a quick lunch followed by a special 1/32 hardbody race on the flat track. 
The 1/32 race will consist of 1/32 hardbody cars that typically are raced on home club tracks. Stock 1/32 cars (using foam tires), any class will be raced.
