Last two laps of the Saturday BFGoodrich Super Tour/SCCAMajors/SafeRacer National Racing Series at Circuit of the Americas from the SafeRacer B-Spec Mini Cooper.

 

This is a mixed class race, where B-Spec is the slowest group. You will see Matt Reynolds go by leading EP and Sam Henry's pass on Eric Prill for the FP win on the last lap, and a pass for 2nd on another B-Spec Mini.

 

Pardon the oil on the windshield compliments of an RX-7 rotary, and a little rain, too. I didn't dare touch the wipers.

 

The exhaust noises are from cars around me. The Mini cat-back is too quiet at this point and it has a restrictor plate on the intake. Racing suspension and cage per rule set, but otherwise a stock 2007 Cooper off a used car lot last month.

 

On Sunday, the alternator/water pump belt disappeared somewhere, so the car shut down on the back straight.  I did manage to limp it behind a wall and avoid a full course caution. Will fix that before the World Challenge race in May.

That's me in the Miata at 5:09 moving to let the Prod car through. I thought there was just 1 Mini behind me when I moved. I didn't know they could split into two like that. Is that allowed in the GCR? ;)

That E Prod car was Jim Daniels...if I had not known who the driver was and where he came from (SM), I'm not sure that I would have stuffed in down in there.  Thanks for the tow down the back straight!
