    Hernan Zamora wins at Riverside in the 911 RSR Historics series
    Write-up by Patrice Cote

    The CMS HIstorics bandwagon was at Riverside for round #5 of the Winter series featuring the Porsche 911 3.0 Carrera RSR. This car and track combo brings back memories of the first IROC in 1973. It was a bit reassuring to see the champions of the glory days in the old broadcast video going wide and spinning out at the very same spot I did. I'd say we aren't doing that bad after all with the 911.

    Well Hernan Zamora proved that he was on top of every trick that car and track threw at him with a masterful victory edging out the ever fast Mihaly Marton.

    The qualification did show that Mihaly would be again the man to beat. The track was fairly dusty and had poor grip, still Mihaly turned a very fast 1:52.948 to clinch the pole in front of Hernan and Ken Baldwin.

    At the green flag, two group quickly formed. The first one, led by Mihaly with Hernan in his mirrors. The second one, fighting for 3rd place regrouped behind Ken Baldwin in the early laps. Third place went on to change hands 5 times between Ken, Michael Kolar and Patrice.

    The first step to victory for Hernan would be played out during the pit stop sequence. He stayed on track a couple more laps than Mihaly and was able to come out in front. Mihaly went in an all-out attack even going in 1:51's to close the gap, but Hernan held on and prevailed at the finish for a superb win.

    With the second place, Mihaly secures his season title, his second in-a-row.

    The third place would be hard fought up to the end too. Michael's pace was imperial during the second half of the race and challenged Ken. Michael needed a couple more laps to make a move and finishes fourth.

    The podium
    1-Hernan Zamora

    3-Ken Bladwin
