CSCC Snowcone Event 5 recap
« on: February 08, 2011, 12:36:08 AM »
The 2010/2011 Calgary Sports car Club snowcone challenge finally lived up to its name in event 5. with more snow than any previous event and bitter cold weather to deal with competitors had to be 100% focused for the challenges that laid ahead of them. VEX performance showed up in full force for this event with both there FWD and AWD drivers on board ready to win, and SPEC R tires added a new driver in the FWD line up to add more depth in there racing endeavors. Event 5 was fast, flowing and full of little tests of patience. Underneath all that snow was slick ice. Add to the bitter cold weather and Event 5 was one challenge for the books.


AWD saw the VEX rally car ready for a serious shake down. after issues with the diffs and many nights working away fixing it, the problems hopefully were a thing of the past. Johnny S. proved once again why hes taken the championship 2 out of 3 years running a perfect event and placing 1st, almost a full 8 seconds faster. Rookie driver Eric E. took second place in his Subaru impreza, beating out 3rd place winner Cam W.


With the VEX SRT4 back from a suspension rebuild it was out in full duty not only winning FWD by a blistering 6 seconds, but it also took the fastest single run of the day. Orrin M. has driven this car immaculately and has no problems showing FWD that hes here for business. David G. in his Mazda protege took second place a perfect second place by over 2 seconds. Newly acquired driver for SPEC R, Ricky H. took 3rd place in his Honda.


RWD as we know is one of the hardest classes to compete in. This of course doesn't stop competitors from making a competition out of it. in a class with so few drivers, the spirit of competition is always overwhelming. The deep snow made this event a challenge but it didn't stop this group from coming out and making a statement. RWD was won by SPEC R driver Kyle H. in his Toyota corolla. a blistering 7 seconds faster than second place driver Spence C. who is showing in his rookie season that he has the skills to take on the big boys. 3rd place went to Gary L.

I can't understand anything other than when mark is talking.
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.
