Matt Geddes Clinches Championship in Spring Assetto Corsa Series

Race Report by David Anderson

May 17, 2020 – Congratulations to Matt Geddes for clinching the 2020 Spring Assetto Corsa Championship, with one race remaining, as he drove to another dominant performance, this week at Kyalami. Matt has been a front runner in every one of our five races to date, including multiple wins and podiums in every event. Aaron Roberts and Michael Kolar were on the podium with Matt at Kyalami. Next week the series will visit Calabogie for our season finale in what has been one of the most fun and most well attended Assetto Corsa series to date. The fields have been strong with 20+ each event and the racing in the Ford Escort vs Alfa Romeo GT AM car has been spectacular. Congrats Matt for the Championship!

GTE/GT4 Cup Series at Road Atlanta

Race Report by Tim Collier

As the GTE/GT4 Cup season crests the halfway point, this week’s race took to the hills of Road Atlanta for the second endurance length event of the season. With the sun setting and the longer race length, nothing was for certain until the checkered flag fell.

The qualifying session was inadvertently limited to one flying lap, but it didn’t keep Kurt Polter from claiming the GT4 class pole once again this season, with a margin of 1.2 seconds back to Jason Lundy. In the GTE class, Humberto Roca took the front starting spot by half a second over Miguel Antonio Alcrudo, which would set up some crazy laps early in the race.

At the start Roca would lead the first 6 laps before encountering troubles, along with Alcrudo and Angel Ledesma and Miguel Alcrudo who also had issues early, and Rafael Sosa would take over the lead on Lap 7. Behind him, Kris Hudson would charge from the back of the GTE class field into second, catching up to Sosa and providing a close fight for the lead to the end of the race. After seventy-five minutes and 57 laps, Sosa would prevail over Hudson by a mere 0.35 seconds, taking his first win of the season! Finishing 9 seconds back, Lowesky D’Oleo had a steady pace to hold the podium spot till the end and add to his Driver’s championship title shot.

The GT4 class saw a tight battle in the first four spots with everyone doing their best to keep up with Polter, but by Lap 6 his lead would stretch out to nearly 10 seconds over Lundy who was under constant attack by Liam Park and Brett Stephens. The battle for second was eventually won by Lundy who managed to pull away from the cars behind him, and both Park and Stephens would have terrible luck leaving Tim Collier to take the third spot and his first podium finish of the season.

So after 5 races, the GT4 class Driver’s Championship has Kurt Polter firmly in the lead with 4 wins out of 5 races, JT Tami and Jason Lundy are tied for second place with Justin Hess only 2 points behind in fourth, and Kenny Rodriguez in fifth.

The battle in the GTE Class lead is very close with Humberto Roca in the lead, Drew Lidkea in second only 4 points back, and Dion Smith in third not far behind Lidkea. Peter Hebron holds fourth place with Matthew Overton only two points behind in fifth.

This series will head to the streets of Detroit next for the Belle Isle Circuit. This event is scheduled for May 27th and will be one to watch!

Race Report by David Anderson

Round 4

May 10, 2020 – The Champion Motorsports Sunday Night Assetto Corsa Historics League continued rolling with a very special and fun event on Mothers Day evening this week.  A strong field showed up to tackle the very technical and challenging Algarve Circuit. The weapons would again be either the Alfa Romeo GT AM car or the Ford Escort. We saw a few drivers, including a few of the front runners, use their one-time car switch allowance to move from the Ford to the Alfa for this race. With a great strategy and blazing pace, Jason Whited would take his first win in the series. Congrats Jason! He was followed by mainstays on the podium Matt Geddes and Michael Kolar.

Next week things head to South Africa as we will visit Kyalami in this very popular series!

GTE/GT4 Cup Series at Brands Hatch

Race Report by Tim Collier

May 6, 2020 – On a beautiful Fall afternoon in England, the Champion Motorsports MX-5 Club Series met to take on the full circuit for the seventh race of the season. If there’s one thing about this series that proves to be true, even 30 minutes is more than enough time for plenty of racing action.

In the qualifying session, the TCR class would see Kris Hudson grab the pole by almost half a second with a lap time of 1:34.096, edging out JT Tami who would start alongside on the front row. In the MX-5 class, Samuel Scott would take the top spot from Kurt Polter with a time of 1:41.955, a half-second over Polter to lead the MX-5 field at the start.

The race start was smooth, with plenty of racing throughout the field, but upfront Hudson would lead the first two laps until Lap 3 when Tami would take the lead for two cycles. Then, after starting in fifth, Miguel Antonio Alcrudo would move up to grab the front spot on Lap 5, with Tami and Hudson right behind him. For the entire race, Hudson and Alcrudo would battle nose to tail, and on the final lap Alcrudo would hold off Hudson for the win by a margin of 0.28 seconds! JT Tami only a few seconds behind would grab the third spot and valuable points in the driver’s championship.

The start in the MX-5’s also went smoothly, and upfront Scott would hold the lead for the first three laps of the race with Polter not far behind him, along with Jason Lundy who had a great start to move into position in the draft. On Lap 4, Polter would take the lead and had a rear-view mirror full of Scott for most of the race. A small slip by Lundy would allow Tim Collier to move into third, far out of contention from the leaders. In the end, Polter would pull away for his third win of the season, Scott finishes in second place and Collier grabs his first podium of the season with a third-place run.

After 7 races, with one race result dropped, the Driver’s Championships are close with battles for the top 3 spots still up in the air. In the MX-5 class, Kurt Polter sits atop the standings, Samuel Scott in second place only 10 points back, then a tight battle for third place with Drew Lidkea, Tim Collier, Peter Hebron, Kenny Rodriguez and David Anderson all within 15 points!

In the TCR class, Brian Szabelski holds the first place spot despite a rough race, with Miguel Antonio Alcrudo in second only 3 points behind, JT Tami in third another 4 points back. Liam Park is in fourth place three points behind Tami, and David Slee rounds out the top five.

The next race for this series will be the second endurance length event of the season at Virginia International Raceway North Circuit on May 20th. This 45-minute race could make or break the season for some of our drivers, and a pit stop will be required so this should be a very interesting race indeed!

Matt Geddes Wins Again in Round 3 at Ahvenisto Race Circuit

Race Report by David Anderson

Round 3

May 3, 2020 – The CMS Assetto Corsa Historics Series took to Finland this week for a really fun track at the unique Ahvenisto Race Circuit, a track we do not visit often. Ahvenisto presents a winding roll through the hills that is both fun and challenging.

Matt Geddes would make it two race wins in a row and three podiums in each of the first rounds in our season, taking a solid lead in the Championship. He would again be joined by Aaron Roberts on the podium and Justin Poteet would be on the podium as well this week for the first time. A shoutout to Patrice Cote for another solid run and our highest of the Alfa Romeo GT AM cars as they look to have a slight disadvantage to the powerful Escorts.

Next week we return to an all familiar circuit Algarve where we expect another great race and some excellent fun!
