R1320 Race Results 30 May 2015
SWIR is now running the summer racing
schedule, meaning racing will be in the evening as the temperatures
It was a great turn out for the R1320
club. There were 12 racers and their supporters.
It was hot in town but the weather was
much cooler at the track. The temperatures were in the high eighties
for most of the evening. Which translated to an equivalent air density
of 5862 ft.
The gates opened at
6pm and R1320 made their first
qualifying run down the track at approx.
7pm. The track seemed anxious to get
all of the racing done by
11pm therefore R1320 was being called
up to the lanes with only a half hour between both of the qualifying
rounds and the elimination rounds. That's a bit quicker than normal
and doesn't give the cars a chance for the engines to cool down much.
The R1320 racers present were; Carl
Mapes, Drew Mapes, Clement De Large, Kevin Hartnett, Phil Rios,
Clayton Jensen, Dana Thompson, Sarir Khamsi, Jamal Brewer. JJ
Keomanivong , Anthony and Mike
Sunday. All of the racers made it
through tech and at least a single qualifying round. Mike
Sunday had to bow out after his first
qualifying round due to a power steering leak. With Mike out of the
running, we now had an odd number of racers, and we implemented the
bye run clause where if there are an odd number of racers, the racer
with the best reaction time during the qualifying rounds would be
ensured a first round lone pass and guaranteed win. The two best
reaction times were very close with Drew Mapes having the best
reaction time of .021 seconds, beating out Phil Rios who had a .026
After the smoke cleared from the
qualifying and elimination burnouts, it was Clement De Large getting
the overall event win with Kevin Hartnett as the runner up.
There was also a SWIR Gambler race that
was run after the R1320 finished their club racing and it was Drew
Mapes who was the overall Gambler winner.
Congratulations to Clement DeLarge
with the R1320 win and Kevin Hartnett as the R1320 runner up.
