Fast Times at World Wide Tech Raceway…

The SCCA road show came to town over this weekend, in the form of the Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA Super Tour Gateway 1.6 Sprints, held at World Wide Tech Raceway (ie, Gateway Motorsports Park). The weather was perfect for racing and the paddock was full with a large number of race cars covering a substantial number of classes.

Big surprise? Ran into Dan Guenther, son of members of SLTOA and a former regular with the Boeing Sports Car Club autocross series who’s working his own way up the racing ladder. Bigger surprise? Among the LBCs in the field – Jaguar XK, Austin-Healey Sprite – was a really fast F Production Spitfire…driven by the one and only Steve Hargis, four-time (at last count) SCCA National Champion in GP and FP. I managed several shots of him out on the track and got to talk with him briefly post-race, thoroughly enjoyed it.

More info and photos on the SCCA event will appear in the June Exhaust Notes (Hargis and his somewhat modified Spit will undoubtedly be on the cover). AND, watch this space tomorrow for some shots from the second BSCC autocross of the season.
