BATTERY TENDER GLOBAL MAZDA MX- 5 CUP
Brian Duddy and Nelson Cheung
finished with 1,176/1,234 points.
The wins for Gezon and Morseberg
were good enough to give each of
them a perfect 100 points for the 2017
National Course Championship. At this
point, Gezon notes, “Highway Robbery
was for fun, as was Future Shock.”
Jeanne English presented Highway
Robbery National Course Rally followed
the next day by rallymaster Larry
Scholnick’s Future Shock Divisional G TA
rally. Those two events were about 400
miles south, but five days gave teams
plenty of time to enjoy getting there.
Highway Robbery has been
an annual event for Cal Club and
rallymaster Jeanne English for a
long time. It was one of the USRRC
events in 2011 and 2015.
This year, English ran the morning
section of the course in the Santa
Monica Mountains, an area she
“has not gone to in many years,”
she says. “The route went across
the mountains and back, including
driving along the Pacific Coast
Highway and Mulholland Highway.”
This event was probably a lot
of fun for Gezon and Morseberg
who scored just 96 points for the
Class E win. Class L was taken by
Richard Wetzel and Andy Stocker
with 711 points, while Jessica and
J toney took Class S with 331.
The next day’s Future Shock was
less of a shock than last year. At least
that was English’s feeling from the
contestants. Teams determined the
correct route and answered questions
about where they were. “The trickiness
was in correctly interpreting the
special instructions which were given
at checkpoints,” English explains.
High score wins on Future
Shock, and Gezon and Morseberg
made it a perfect week winning
Class E with 75 points. There
were no Class L competitors, but
Class S is worth a deeper look.
Steve and Sheila Friedman took first
in that class with 55 points. English
took note that it was a mother and
son team with the son driving and
mom “navigating, since she was the
one who used to run gimmick rallies
back in the ’70s; son was in the back
seat while mom and dad ran the
rally.” The son is in his 40s now.
English says she “had a great
time doing this again after so many
years and wants to do more.”
And that, you could say, is
how the win was west.
