Laguna Seca Grand Am results
Good morning everyone..
Here is a quick update..
Bret qualified 7th at Laguna and ran the first 45 minutes in the top ten.
Practice times were very good, and we were in the top three in the last practice session.
At about the mid point of the race, Andrew got tangled up with a BMW and sent for a wide ride over the dragons teeth and into the wall. Body damage was slight, but the left front shock broke, ending our day..
We were all pretty disappointed.
The car was running well. We pitted first with about 4 other cars and once the next round of pit stops occured, we would have been positioned with the leaders. Bummer.
The STI is one of the best handling cars on the track at this point. We are not as fast as the v-8's, but given the restrictive engine rules, we do very well. Shorter tracks with lots of curves and hills are our best venues..
NJMP is next on the 23rd of July. We expect to do well there since it is our home track...
See you all there...

I could research somewhere, but you probably know when this race will show up on TV?

I think its broadcast tomorrow on SPEED.
I do know that the locals at Freedom pick up the 1-2 in ST.

Watched the race yesterday on SPEED. They showed the incident between the Subie and Bimmer, but I don't think they ever commented on you guys not coming back into the race. That was a heckuva tangle with the BMW - your car had a few feet of air under the right side tires!
Hopefully NJMP will treat you better!
