The CMS rF2 Week in Review: Going the Distance at Road America
It was a relatively quiet week at CMS for rF2 racing as both the MNRL and VWSC get ready for one of the highlights of their WSC 1991 seasons – Lemans!
This past week, NARS continued their Radical GT3/SR3 series with a stop at Elkhart Lake and the first of the enduro races. A venue very familiar to CMS racers, anticipation was high for some keen competition in the two classes
AM driver Paul Ibbotson set the pace with a 2:05.068 in his GT3, almost a second clear of his closest competitor. In the SR3s, with a 2:08.746, PRO Daniel Kirby just edged out Eduardo Beninca.
While Road America with it’s long straights is ideal for the GT3s to stretch their legs over the SR3s, it proved to be more of a challenge than expected for the AM drivers. Only three of them were able to finish ahead of the SR3-equipped PROs and by the checkered flag, only four cars total, including PRO class winner Eduardo Beninca, were on the lead lap. For both Beninca and Ibbotson, the AM winner, pit cycles proved to be key to their race wins and will certainly be areas that the other drivers examine before the next endurance race.
This coming week, the two big WSC 1991 races are on Tuesday night and Saturday afternoon (N American timezones) while NARS continues with the Radical series and a return to the sprint format at Barber Motorsports Park.
