Road America, 40th Anniversary

Road America

Storied Road America, 40th anniversary of Sports 2000, 52 S2’s entered, beautiful facility, great people, good food, and it only rained one afternoon. What more could you want? Personally I’d like the track to be closer to my home so I could run it more.

Well, We could have used a little less enthusiasm at the start of the qualifying race. Turn one
saw a number of cars off, with one pointed in the wrong direction. As the field moved on, it
spread out over the 4 mile track. The racing became more reasonable until an over zealous driver
spun and came back on to soon taking out Steve Groh’s beautiful 83 Tiga, ending Steve’s
weekend.

Our feature race saw a clean start but only lasted 4 laps when a Carbir lost it big time in Canada
corner creating a black flag / checker, ending the race. The top ten cars were all from Wisconsin,
or a state away, except for Brent Gernert from PA ( fifth ) and Mark Brannon from AZ ( eighth )

    A little of this, a little of that.

    Thursday’s test day was hot and humid, Friday was a wash out, except for the great VS2 Social created by Henry Payne and held in Jim Kelly’s Speed Unlimited paddock.

    The weekend weather turned beautiful and on the track we had a little of everything, a couple of rolling chicanes here, a V8 brick or two with no discernible mirrors ( Group 5 cars )

    But the best thing was the S2000 races. Everyone played nice but gave no quarter. Both Saturday and Sunday had close racing at the front, and all through the pack.
    Brent Gernert qualified on the pole and had a fast clean race with Mark Coombs, who finished first on Saturday.

    Sunday saw Gernert, Coombs, Sherwood, and Henry Payne IV vying for the lead when they came upon a Group 5 car. As they came upon the slower car, Gernert got two wheels off and spun. Coombs went on to another well deserved win.
