Below are results and tech data from last Saturday's races at Magnatech.

In LMP, PA Watson was the runaway winner, and none of us really had anything for him. Ken Stevens and I had a nice battle for second.

I managed the win in Pro GTP by a single lap over PA with Brandon Schlicht taking third.

What this graphic doesn't show:
- LMP concours was won by Ken Reese's Ralph Thorne Orca
- Pro GTP concours was taken by Jerry Straznicky with a very nice OS Caddy
- PA's TQ time in LMP is missing because I didn't get it from Jim. Will work on that in order to update.
- Ken Stevens DNF'ed in Pro GTP

Thanks to Jim Honeycutt for hosting and for lunch, and to Cliff Wheeler for holding down the rent-a-car desk while Jim race-directed.

Hi Scott,
Thanks for posting.

Congrats on beating the great (racer and person) P.A. Watson.

I, of course, enjoy seeing my motors on top in both classes.

Any idea how many races guys get out of them?

Don't know about the Stage 4 because I haven't tried one yet.

 

My Stage 5 was on its first race. I ran another one for two races in another car, then gave that car to Brandon. He ran it for two races, and it has given no indication I'm aware of that it's getting near The End.

 

And thanks, Mike. PA is a top-notch racer and dedicated shop owner and promoter of the hobby. But he is also a great friend and very good man. It's my pleasure to have known him--and gotten beaten by him--for a very long time!

Scott,

Thanks for responding.

 

4 races(so far) on a motor that apparently competes with a conventional motor with a $50+ American wound G12 arm, sounds good to me.

 

Thanks again for the info.
