TCR/MX-5 Club Series at Watkins Glen

Race Report by Tim Collier

March 11, 2020 – This week, the TCR/MX-5 Club Series headed to upstate New York to visit Watkins Glen International, using the full “Boot” layout in the first of two endurance events on this season’s schedule.

Times posted in qualifying indicated the track was getting faster as the clouds moved in, with Brian Szabelski putting in a sub-2 minute lap time to take the TCR Class pole position, and in the MX-5’s it was the same with Samuel Scott blistering the track taking pole by more than half a second!

The race start was uneventful, and the two […]

GTE/GT4 Pre-Season at Road America

Race Report by Tim Collier

March 4, 2020 – With the release of the Porsche Cayman GT4 this week, it was time to put the rubber on the road and see how well it grips. Tonight’s pre-season race at Road America was a multiclass affair featuring the GTE class cars of iRacing on the track with it’s latest release. The new tire model for all the cars proved to be an additional factor for some drivers, but as usual many adjusted along the way and found the groove once again.

In qualifying Justin Hess would start on pole for the GT4 class […]

TCR/MX-5 Club Series at Road Atlanta

Race Report by Tim Collier

February 26, 2020 – This week, the TCR/MX-5 Club Series took to the famed Road Atlanta circuit for the second race of the season. The heat and marbles made for a thin line to turn a fast lap, and everyone in attendance was up to the task.

In qualifying, Samuel Scott started on the pole in the MX-5 Class while Liam Park would grab his first CMS pole to lead the entire field to the green.

The start of the 30-minute race was tight racing, and after a few laps both classes would stretch out into several battles […]

TCR/MX-5 Club Series at Interlagos

Race Report by Tim Collier

February 12, 2020 – Kicking off a new season of racing, the TCR/MX-5 Club Series went south to Brazil to the historic Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, otherwise known as Interlagos.

With two classes of cars racing simultaneously, there were many overtakes between and within classes all the way to the checkered flag.

In the TCR Class, Miguel Alcrudo would qualify on the pole and take an early lead, with his son Miguel Antonio Alcrudo hot on his tail. It was a father/son duel that wasn’t decided until the last lap, when Antonio Alcrudo would make the pass and […]

NARS Winter – Race 3: Eastern Creek

February 6, 2020 – Up front and pulling away was the norm for the winner of our NARS Winter Series Round 3 as Norm Graf took off and never looked back, although he did have to look up at one point as his car got put on it’s side after a misunderstanding with a curb while trying to maneuver thru traffic.With several of our regulars missing this round due to prior commitments the podium had some new faces as Jimmy Regan brought it home in second with Deuce Michaels not far behind waiting for any miscues.

TCR/MX-5 Pre-Season at Zolder

Race Report by Tim Collier

January 29, 2020 – The final pre-season race for the TCR/MX-5 Club Series at Zolder was, in few words, fast. With such a tight circuit and downright evil chicanes, the pace was quick and the race undecided until the end.

In the TCR class, Dave Slee took the pole position at the start, but was passed by Brian Szabelski on Lap 7 and the chase was on. It appeared Szabelski had a narrow lead on the penultimate lap, but a slight touch of grass while braking gave the lead and the win to Slee. After a tough […]

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 […]

MNRL Camaro Club Series at Barber MSP

January 21, 2020 – The first, officially scored, MNRL Series 12 event is in the record books. The Camaro Club Challenge Series headed to the always exciting and highly challenging Barber Motorsports Park for the first two races of that series.

In Seniors division, Peter Holm took the top spot while finishing an impressive P4 overall in […]

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 […]

NARS at Sonoma

November 14, 2019 – As the NARS Autumn series winds down, an infrequently visited track was the venue for Race 6: Sonoma. A decent sized grid attendanece (especially compared to the two previous races) made for some extra excitement. Over the course of the past few weeks, the Group A Senna has lost favor and the drivers have chosen to migrate back to their more comfortable surroundings – a GT3 cockpit. Elliot Budzinski took the pole spot with a 1:31.482 best lap. The race was met with a higher than usual attrition rate, no-doubt in part because of the rough […]

MNRL F1 95 at Silverstone

November 12, 2019 – While it seems simplistic on the surface, Silverstone always proves itself a great challenge for drivers. Round 4 of the MNRL F1 95 Series was held there.

Frank McCurdy took P2 and Joe Miller rounded out the overall top 3.
