RP Performance dominates at Watkins Glen

June 2nd, 2012
10:42 pm

RP Performance dominated at Watkins Glen with 8 Poles positions which led to 7 wins and 5 track records.    In Spec RX-7 Dave Ade had one pole, 2 wins as well as a track record on both the long and short course.    SSM saw Brian Zalner back on the track after over two years off from racing.  Brian Zalner had an outstanding weekend in a borrowed car with 2 poles, 2 wins and a track record on the short course.  With a new RP Performance engine Al  Gervais  in  his ITS RX-7 came away with a 1st and 2nd place finish.  Spec Miata was a battle all weekend long between teammates Brian Price and Ken Zalner. Both Brian and Ken each had a pole position in the weekend and finished 1st and 2nd on Saturday.  On Sunday both Brian Price and Ken spun but Ken was able to recover to finish 2nd and Brian finished 4th.  In the process Brian Price scored a lap record in Spec Miata on the short course.  In ITA Brian Price had the field covered both days in his RP Performance Mazda Miata.  Brian had the pole on both days with a win on Saturday. On Sunday Brian had a fuel pump failure that left him with a DNF but he did set the short course lap record in ITA. Greg Gale also made the trip and was able to finish in the top five in ITA.  I want to also thank TJ and Kim for all of their help over the weekend to make it all possible.  Our next race will be the weekend of June 9th and 10th at Summit Point.  Come on out and cheer us on!!

In ITS Al Gervais has been working hard on the car in the off season with lots of inprovements for 2012.The 3 day drivers school is coming up the 23rd , 24th and 25th of March. We still have room for track support and rentals if you are looking at attending the school.  More news and updates to follow soon so keep posted and follow us on Facebook.

Wow what a weekend we had at VIR for the Sarrc/Marrs challenge.  RP Performance drivers put on a great show and had some great results for the tow race event.  The complete results are listed here at http://www.ncrscca.com/club-racing-results.  We came away with 6 wins and 4 poles out of the 4 classes that we had cars competing in.  Brian Price in SM had 1 pole and 1 win and a 2nd place in a very tough group of almost 50 cars. He had a great drive on Sunday after being on the pole and running off track on the first lap. He fell back to about 16th place but was able to get back up to 2nd place. Scott Brunk had 1 pole and 2 wins in SSM in a group of  25 cars. Other notables in SSM are John Gerbracht with a 4th and 5th place finish. Dave Wible with a 5th and 6th place finish. Glenn Davis and AJ Gillum with 8th and 10th places finishes. In ITS Al Gervais had 1 pole and 2 wins, in SRX7 Dave Ade with a pole and a 1st place. In ITA Owen Schefer had 2 2nd places results.
