Redline Track Events Round 1 at Willow Springs Raceway in Rosamond, CA 3/5/11 – 3/6/11


 In the Modified FWD class Oscar Jackson in his Kraftwerks Integra would narrowly miss out on breaking the Mod FWD track record set in 2009 by Tim Kuo.  Jackson’s efforts were more than good enough to take first in class and the overall Modified class win with his time.  Jeremy Hugee in his GXS Motorsports Jetta would take second and was the only other competitor in the class.


 Despite the windy track conditions Oscar Jackson nearly set a new track record in the Kraftwerks Integra.  Jackson would take the win in the Modified FWD division.  


The Super Modified class would only see two competitors total, both in the RWD class.  Paul Brown in the K&N Engineering G35 coupe would take 1st and would also put on a great show later in the day in the Pro Track Challenge.  Tim Hastings showed up in an insane looking single seater Honda K20 powered Lotus.  Unfortunately he was plagued with mechanical problems throughout the day but still fought his way to a 2nd place finish.


Paul Brown and the team at K&N Engineering were hard to work in the off season.  The G35 is much improved and much faster compared to its previous outing at Autoclub Speedway.  Brown took the win in the Super Modified RWD class.


This was Tim Hastings first outing in the recently built K20 powered Lotus.  LCon racecars completed some major chassis engineering just days before the event.  Mechanical issues kept the car from running the lap times it should have but they still were able to complete the timed event with a 2nd place finish.


The Redline Pro Track Challenge is where the machines pumped on steroids come out to do battle in a no holds barred head to head 2 lap battle.  The series has attracted some of the heavy hitters from the higher levels of motorsports.  There were a few World Challenge teams that brought out cars built to such a high level that our Redline Time Attack cars looked low budget in comparison.  Group A wheels brought out a full dry carbon Pontiac GTO that more closely resembles an Australian V8 Supercar than the road going version.  We also got to see some of our former Time Attack brothers go out and compete against the big dogs with multi million dollar budgets. 


The Group A Wheels Pontiac GTO is one of the loudest and meanest cars of the bunch.  Joey Scarallo and his team borrowed a good amount of Australian V8 Supercar DNA to build this monster. 


 Andrei Tsaran in the TH Motorsports STI was able to edge out the Works EVO in a classic STI vs EVO shootout. 


Lars Wolfe drove his heart out in the Works Motorsports EVO X in the circuit battle.  Once the chassis is sorted they will be a strong contender in the Pro Track Challenge competition.
