  • FVSRA Summer / Fall Race #1 - Cocoa, Florida


    COCOA, FL (19 JULY 09) - Two dozen entries signed in for JK Spec, GT and Can-Am racing on's Hillclimb.

    I want to thank everyone who came and put up with the fact our a/c went on the fritz Friday night (it is scheduled for repair today).

    Thanks also to Mike Rigsby and Terry Tawney who ran hundreds of laps to help get the spray glue set for the day's racing. Terry and I were still cleaning the track and running laps late Sunday morning. By the time we began the D-3's just after noon, it was nearly perfect.

    The JK Spec Class was, once again a purely exhibition event. Local "shoe" Terry Tawney took the win, but we were all wowed by the stunning Sampson built, Noose painted entry of Tony P. It was Tony's first trip to but he managed a second, just ahead of Bob Rondinone. Terry set best segment (27) and Matt Boman had fast lap (4.391).

    Bob - JK D-3 "Torsional/Falcon 7/JK Ferrari 612 Can-Am

    The GT race was a close one with several races within the race Matt Boman and Terry Tawney stayed at the top of the "laps averaged" screen for the entire main with Terry ultimately getting the win and fast lap (4.230). Matt, Terry and Bill Colvard tied for best segment (21) Count Gibson finished third.

    Terry - Kelly Steel/Falcon 7/JK Lola T-70
    Matt - Champion Turbo Flex /Falcon 7/JK Porsche 917
    Count - JK X-24/Falcon 7/JK Lola T-70

    Can-Am was the final event of the day. Terry and Matt were once again separated by only a couple of laps with Terry getting the win, fast lap (4.167) and sharing best segment honors with Matt, Bill Colvard and Steve Bowman (28). Bill and Steve were on the same lap, with Bill getting third by just a few feet.
