NARS Winter Kickoff at Adelaide

January 23, 2020 – Starting with a strong grid and a wild race at Adelaide’s street circuit in the Supercars, the Thursday night NARS Winter Series is now underway. With one of the largest grids any NARS Series has seen in a while, Group A’s Elliot Budzinski took the pole position by over 1.2 seconds and went on to win the race. Elliot was followed onto the Group A podium by the always fast Norm Graf followed by Tyler Alan. Group B was won by Tom Nasella in a sterling but careful drive. Behind Tom was David Anderson and Paul Ibbotson to round out the Group B podium. Adelaide walls proved to be the greatest competitior and there were multiple heartbreak crashes in the final 2-3 laps after drivers had completed (almost) all of the 60 minute race. Some competitiors gambled a bit too much on the fuel tank and ran out of fuel in the last couple turns. It is hoped that some experiments with race settings will help to maintain excitement – and participation – through the 9 race series.

MNRL 1998 CART Montreal Exhibition Race

January 14, 2020 – MNRL hosted the sole exhibition race of the 1998 CART series on January 14, 2020 at Montreal.

Seasoned drivers took to the front of the field, while newcomers showed early promise in what is surely a challenging car for nearly any driver.

Joe Miller set the pace early on, while pole sitter Jason Whited struggled at the start and fell back through the field in what was a chaotic first few corners. Surprisingly, nearly all drivers managed their way through the chaos without incident and the race was under way!

Newcomer Gui Cramer showed early promise, quickly finding himself in P2. A later, unfortunate incident, would see him eventually retire from the race early.
MNRL Season 11 Seniors Points Champion Jerry Hamilton won amongst the seniors group, while Whited (who’d spent a lot of time running P2) eventually chased down Miller and after a dramatic bit of struggle managed to take the overall win.

It was an exciting exhibition race and a teaser of the excellent action that will surely be seen in this high caliber series!

Round 1 of this series will take place on January 28, 2020 and registration is still open if you’d like to join in! All are welcome and invited!

ACC Sprint Finale – Spa Race 2

December 2, 2019 – With the final race done and the season complete, we’d first like to thank everyone for participating! Secondly, make sure to keep an eye on the Mondays section on CMS for news regarding season 2! Without further delay, onto the final race report of the season!

Race 2

Pro – With a 1.5 point gap between Josh Staffin in 1st and John Paul Hidalgo in 2nd, the final race of the season proved to be the championship deciding one in a controversial fashion. Hidalgo led from the start, but at the end of lap 1, Staffin broke late and touched the rear of Hidalgo, sending both off the track. Hidalgo rejoined in 2nd with Keith Briscoe taking the lead, while Staffin fell back to 4th behind Austin Vicari. Other victims of poor starts included Don Bélanger, who decided to retire on lap 1, and Bubba Jones, who collided with Ricardo Navon (Silver) and dropped the pair towards the back of the field. Staffin and Vicari’s battling allowed JT Tami (Silver) to move between the pair up into 3rd overall, with Staffin clearing Vicari for 4th on lap 3, and Tami (Silver) later on lap 4. Briscoe continued to hold Hidalgo at bay as Staffin closed in on the pair, but on lap 8 Briscoe made a mistake that allowed Hidalgo to take the lead and open a gap. Unfortunately, the incident between Hidalgo and Staffin would prove costly, as the damage eventually caught Hidalgo off-guard and sent him spinning off into the barriers on lap 10, dropping to 3rd and allowing Briscoe and Staffin a clear run to the finish. Briscoe defended flawlessly, holding off Staffin and securing the win and 4th in the Overall Championship. Staffin would come home on his tail in 2nd, taking 1st in the Overall Championship. Hidalgo completed the podium further back, resulting in 2nd in the Overall Championship.

Silver – First in the Silver Class Championship was up for grabs between JT Tami and Eric Andersen, with only 3.5 points between them. Tami led alongside Ricardo Navon at the start, fighting side-by-side until a mistake from Bubba Jones (Pro) behind caused Jones to slam into the side of Navon, dropping the Navon to 7th overall and 3rd in class behind Dominic Guerin. Tami escaped unscathed, and was able to pass Josh Staffin (Pro) and Austin Vicari (Pro) who were holding each other up, moving Tami into 3rd overall for a brief period. Eric Andersen, who had failed to set a time in qualifying 2, started 14th and was well off the class lead by the time the field settled in. On lap 9, Navon had caught up to the rear of Tami and was pressuring well. Lap 11 Andersen passed Guerin for 8th overall and 3rd in class, with a fair gap between himself and Navon. On lap 12, Navon got into the rear of Tami, pushing him into the runoff; Tami kept control of his Aston and carried on without losing further positions. Navon went on to maintain the class lead and 4th overall, and secured 3rd in the Silver Championship ahead of Dave Hassar, who struggled in both races. Tami finished 2nd in class and 5th overall, taking victory in Silver Class. Andersen finished further back, 3rd in class and 8th overall, taking 2nd in the Silver Championship.

AM – Michael Mortensen looked to maintain the points gap to Dominic Guerin (Silver) and Austin Vicari (Pro) behind. With Don Bélanger (Pro) and Dave Slee (Silver) retiring, Mortensen was promoted to 13th overall by the end of lap 1. While not quite able to match the Silvers in terms of pace, the chance for positions didn’t escape Mortensen as Steve Poe (Silver) had made an error on lap 4 that dropped him just within reach. Mortensen followed closely and attempted a move down the inside of turn 1 on lap 5, but couldn’t quite make it stick. Mortensen continued on a consistent drive to the finish, remaining 13th overall to match his 13th place in the Overall Championship, maintaining position ahead of Vicari (Pro) and Guerin (Silver).
