Default 1st NASA Event at Miller Motorsports Park, Crawford STi vs. Ford GT, (Video Inside)

NASA HPDE/race, Miller Motorsports Park, Utah

May 20-21: NASA HPDE/race, Miller Motorsports Park, Utah

The Crawford Performance’s shop car makes the trip to Miller Motorsports Park, just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah for some testing and comes home with a 3rd place in TTU class and fastest Subaru overall. Subaru TTU driver, Russ Warr began the weekend with a practice day on Friday to soak in as much of the 4.5 mile, 24 corner track. Dr. Warr said, 'While the track was difficult to remember, it was a great experience to race down the straight away 3 cars abreast and still plenty of room to breath.'



The competition between the Ford GT and Crawford STi was a site to see, no one would have expected a Subaru to keep up with a Ford GT. Saturday, Russ Warr lead most of the day over the Ford GT snagging 3rd in the TTU class, while the Ford GT took 4th. Sunday the world spun a little faster, early on Dr. Russ Warr threw down the gauntlet churning a 3:20.289, 2 seconds faster than the previous day, and a full 20 seconds faster than the next fastest Subaru.

With speeds in excess of 145 mph, Dr. Warr pushed his Crawford Performance 2004 STi to a new Subaru track record. The Ford GT did not give up easily and later that day managed to pull in a 3:20.014, nudging past the Subaru.

All in all it was a great weekend, 10 sessions, 3.5 hours of track time and it was time to come home. Congrats go out to Russ Warr and William Knose on a successful and long weekend. So how did this all go down?

Tuesday May 16, I get a call from Chiropractor extraordinaire Russ Warr:
Russ - 'Hey you want to go and check out the new Miller Motorsports track? It supposed to be this new way cool new 4.5 mile long circuit, the longest in North America' Blah blah blah…
Chris - 'Sure sounds great. When?'
Russ - 'We leave this Thursday!'
Chris – 'Man Russ, your killing me… (long pause) Fine let’s do it!'
Russ – 'One more thing….(long pause)…can I drive your 2005 Sti Demo car?'
Chris – 'Don’t ask for much, do ya! Fine…only if you spring for the tires and beer.'
Russ – 'Deal'
And that, is they say was that…

Well almost. I bailed out and asked I-Speed USA tuner William (Bill) Knose to go in my place. I forgot I double booked this weekend. As such, I stayed true to my word and took care of some prior engagements. Besides, I was already hating on that 14 hour drive! LA to Utah on one long lonely road in the middle of the night…yuck!

Anyway, Russ and Bill had a good time beating on the car. Russ took 3rd in class with a 3:20.289. The competition, Factory Five (3:16.909), Ford GT (3:20.014), Race Prepped RX-7 (3:21.865 ) and Pro-Charger Vette (3:22.099).

To the guys at Crawford and I Speed...thanks for a great weekend.....
Lets go to Buttonwillow June 9, 10 and 11....
The facility at Miller is second to none. All curbs are FIA.....this track could host F1, Nascar, Indy cars etc.....
If you have a chance to drive this track take the trip it is worth it!!!!!
The car did great even with a full interior, stereo, amps and no roll cage!!!!
BTW we took the sub out of the trunk.......

Thanks again....

Russ

That was the subaru that was 20 seconds behind the i-craw subaru lap time. But, Cobb's car certainly looks cool.

Our car ran a 3:20.8 on Sunday, second time its ever set tires on a track (first for MMP) so we still have A LOT of development to do! That car is still VERY much a street car, full interior, and based on the claimed power numbers about 100+ HP down on the Crawford car currently.

The Crawford STI looked great, and Russ is an awesome driver. Many congrats on a great weekend! Next time stop by the trailer and say hi, we don't bite. ;-)

Trey:
Here are the pics of the times that vehicles were running all weekend long. Which number car where you guys, 775? That white sure looks sweet Anyway, I’m fairly sure you were in the same session as us, but I do not see times for car 775.





FYI: Our shop demo car has full interior, no cage, decent tunes- Focal speakers, JL Audio amps (still in the car), 10” JL SUB, which we remove for track days. This car is only our Shop Demo car. Some customers either rent it, like Russ, or swing by the shop to take it for a spin. Of course it’s not as fun to drive as our Time Attack car

Hello,

Cool. Congrats! Those are great times. Good enough to run with the USTCC. We're always looking to grow the field and the racing isn't very costly...

Here are the caveats - stock suspension mounting points, spec Hankook 235-wide tire, and most cars are extremely power-limited.

Our fastest qualifier was Dave Brown, in the EVO VIII, running at 3450 lbs, 17 psi boost, stock engine and turbo, unleaded 100 octane, etc., turning a 3:20.670.

During the race, the top 4 cars turned the following fastest laps:

Dave Brown in the EVO 8, 3.21.766
Dale Sievwright in a BMW 328is, 3.22.971
Toby Grohovec in a BMW 330i, 3.22.083
and the most surprising to me...
Vesko Kozarov in a Mini Cooper S, 3.21.145

Vesko had all sorts of heat soak issues from the silly stock top mount. We gave him an allowance to run a front mount but he hasn't gotten around to installing one... That little Mini was flying. There was a little too much carnage during the race, otherwise, I think Vesko would have had a chance to push through the BMWs and take the charge to the EVO.

Exciting race, great track, and considering that most of these cars put 200-240 hp at the wheels, pretty awesome driving.

C'mon and join us!

Joel

You're absolutely right Chris, that's because the track ran short of transponders. Wouldn't have mattered much for me as I was driving the car when it had the 775 numbers. We have our own CDS data acquisition onboard that car with its own non-AMB transponder so I can get my times and more importantly see what the car is doing (and my mistakes!). My fastest times in the car were only in the 3:25.x range. I definitely wasn't getting the most from the car, but being my second weekend ever on a road course I'm hopefully of continued improvement. Definitely wasn't 20 seconds slower though.... I mean I'm slow but I'm not THAT slow. At least I'm trying, right?

The car started to show its true speed when I let local hot-shoe Matt Guiver drive it on the third session of Sunday. He had a AMB transponder so he was able to record an "official" time. As I assume you're set on proving me as lying (why I'd lie about being slower perhaps only you can explain but whatever) I'm including a pic of the car with Matt driving and his numbers on. You can also talk with Greg G @ NASA, he was aware Matt was driving the car during that session as we cleared it with him prior.

http://www.mylaps.com/results/newResults.jsp?id=326317



And for the record, Matt is an amazing driver but his experience is really in auto-x. This was also his first weekend at a NASA/Time Trial event.

And again, congrats on a great result and weekend. That car looked great and Russ is FAST. Glad you enjoyed our new track out here in Utah. We're pretty excited to finally have something of this caliber to use and test on.

Cheers,
Trey @ COBB

Trey,

Next time i will be sure to stop by..... do you have a splitter on the car???? I was experiencing a major "lack of grip" as you could hear by all the tire noise. I think with a rear wing, splitter and the canards on the car I would have had more grip. The track is still very green and when some rubber gets layed down the track should really pick up some speed. The number of "high speed" turns at this track was insane..... I look forward to going out there again... Nasa was/is talking about a date later this year........ See ya at the races

Russ

Russ,

Nope, no front splitter. Once I get more consistent with my driving I should try pulling the canards off to see if I can actually even notice and quantify a difference. I'd think a front splitter and proper bell pan would be in order to actually gain effectiveness from the canards but my knowledge of racecar aerodynamics comes from the back of Racecar engineering magazine so that doesn't really account for a whole lot. Someone like Marshall [MPME] would be able to weigh in on the subject in a much more intelligent manner.

The high speed sections are fantastic, I agree. Its going to be a great track to continue to learn, test and practice on.

If you guys come out this way again, definitely let me know. We have a team garage out at MMP now with one of our Mustang AWD dynos installed and a two-post lift, if either are ever a need for you guys while you're here.

Cheers,
Trey @ COBB

Matt did a great job and was able to beat his best time in his car by over 4 seconds while driving the Cobb car.
