FOR THE KOHR MOTORSPORTS GT4 MUSTANGS
Next up was the second ARRC
round of the Spec MX- 5 Challenge
race – and this was for all the beans.
Ensor pulled out all of the stops to
make this one happen, leading every
lap and clinching the title and the
purse. It wasn’t a cakewalk, however,
as his margin of victory was only
0.128sec over Nick Bruni.
The FE and FE2 race that followed
was light with only seven entries, and
polesitter Paul Schneider was up by
three seconds, but the rest of the
field was close. And it continued – for
four laps, at least. Three cars spun
into the gravel at Turn 10A bringing
out the black flag all. When the race
resumed, Schneider blitzed the
field for the win with more than a
minute over his closest competition.
Next up was the GT- 3 Challenge
presented by MPI, and this class,
heavily endorsed by Mazda, featured
some of the best-looking racecars
of the weekend. They were fast,
too! Jeff Dernehl qualified on pole
in his beautiful RX- 7 followed by
Stacy Wilson in another looker of an
RX- 7, with Rich Grupp next up in his
RX- 3 stunner. They finished in that
order after a strong performance.
The final event was the Atlantic Pro
Cup and ECR, which ran concurrently.
As expected, James Libecco took
his SRF3 to the APC win. Meanwhile,
pro racer, pro champion, and
multi-time Solo National Champion
Tom O’Gorman grabbed the overall
ECR win in his STU Honda Civic.
With that, another Gran Turismo
East ARRC came to an end. SCCA’s
Atlanta Region always manages to keep
this weekend fresh, and this year was
fresher than most with the excitement
of the GT- 3 Challenge presented by
MPI and the Spec MX- 5 Challenge
races. ARRC racers also got to bid
farewell to the iconic timing tower. Next
year, the new and expanded tower will
be there to greet us. Don’t miss it.
