At any rate we need to get participation up in the current class before we add a new class. But I like the idea.
We just completed the first annual BBR Le Mans Cup series at the ROAR Region 12 championships held at the Ripon Raceway in Ripon, California. The BBR Le Mans Cup is a series created by Ken Jones, owner of Black Box Racing (BBR) and pitted both GT cars and Prototype GTP, Group C and Can Am cars on the track at the same time competing for two different champion ships. The series visited eight different tracks throughout Northern California which made for a Varity of course designs and surfaces. Just like real racing!!!
Here are the winners of both classes.
Prototype GTP, Group C & Can Am:
First Place Steve Ashby driving a Lola CRC GenX 10 200mm
Second Place William Brown driving a Nissan HPI Roadstar 235mm
Third Place Tim Copp driving a Lotec Associated 10L2 235mm
First Place Jim Rose driving a Corvette Associated 10L3T 200mm
Second Place Michael O’Donnell driving an Alfa Romeo Sophia Associated 10L3T 200mm
Third Place K. J. Jones driving a Callaway Corvette 200mm
It was great seeing so many different cars and body styles on the track at the same time. We are planning some rules adjustments for the 2009 season.
