drive Miatas along with the odd
mid-year MR2. Somehow, that
results in very close competition,
especially when we get to the
high-grip Lincoln surface. Adam
Barber has a CRX and seems
likely to defend his title. Chris
Bailey and Andrew Canak have
the yellow MR2 working well. As
far as the Miata contingent, co-drivers Gerry Terranova and Kim
Whitener will join Rich DiMarco.
Katie Crawford is registered
for STSL. Considering she won a
four-entry STSL class by nearly
8 seconds last year, we pick her.
Street Touring Hatchback may
epitomize the diverse class model.
Thomas Thompson is quick in
his re-motored TT. We will say
the same thing about Jason
Tipple and his Civic. Without
a whole lot of head-to-head
action during the year, we have
to guess on this one between
Brian Flanagan or Chris Thorpe
in Golfs, or Alex Piehl in his WRX.
STHL should belong
to Jessica Podhola.
Super Street Prepared seems
likely to come down to either Ryan
Johnson in his Lotus if the courses
don’t favor power, or Joe Tharpe in
his Corvette if they do. Our money
is on Matthew Braun in the Delgado
GT3, no matter what the course is
like. That said, if we were to pick a
winner in this field of dream cars
based purely on the awesomeness
of the ride, Eric Hyman in a
Lamborghini Huracán Performante
would certainly be our choice.
Super Street Prepared
Ladies doesn’t have many
entrants, but we have to pick
Laurie Hyman in the rockin’
Lamborghini Huracán Performante.
A Street Prepared is almost
sure to rejoin the annual battle
between the Evos of Aaron Miller
and Tom Berry. Also, could this
be Christine Grice’s year?
B Street Prepared should be
another easy win for Ron Bauer
in his reconstituted ND Miata.
C Street Prepared has one of
the best duels going. If all goes
well, Neal Tovsen and Billy Davis
will put on a great show in NB
Miatas and demonstrate that the
PAX still can’t keep up with them.
