This was the final event in the series of three Triathlons. A full complement of eight participants showed up for the race. Final point totals for each participant for the Series are shown in the table below. In a separate post, I will describe in more detail the results for Trans-Am, Sports Car and GT1 by class and show all of the cars in each class that participated in the Series.


The grid was populated by Camaros and Firebirds. Nicks new Mustang was the only exception. Prior to the race, Scott installed a loaner ProSlot 16D motor complements of Ron. The motor made a huge difference, lifting the performance of Scotts 68 Firebird back to former levels.
Bob, Rich and James battled it out for the podium spots. In the end, it was Bob, Rich and James for first through third respectively. Check out the new Series Trans-Am rides below. Rich ran his Penske 69 Camaro. Ron fielded a brand new 68 Camaro and Nick ran his new Mustang.


Sports Car
Ferrari 458s and Ford GTs dominated the field. Bob won easily piloting his 458 to 92.7 laps. James and Rich battled it out for the second spot. In the end, James outdistanced Rich by two laps. Ron was fourth, about a lap down from Rich


As usual, the grid was quite diverse. Rich opted to run his new orange Porsche 962. The re-bodied car replaced his Camel 962 which was heavily damaged over the past year or so. Terry ran his Toyota 84C. The big news was Bobs entry. In the first two races of the Series, Bob was forced to run loaner GT1s because the motor in his Enzo died. The Enzo returned for race number three of the Series with a fresh Hawk 7. I knew the car was dynamite. In practice Bob ran several fast laps in the mid 4.6 second range.
Bob led the race wire to wire to win with a fine lap total of 95.8 (the highest for GT1 cars in the Series). James was second, about a lap and a half behind Bob. Rich was relegated to third place, finishing two laps behind second place James.
