2010 S2K Challenge #10 – Streets of Willow (CCW)
Our tenth 2010 S2K Challenge event was held on November 7, 2010 at Streets of Willow (CCW).
Weather: Pretty much optimal conditions for FAST lap times! High of 64.5F and a low of 38.2F. The winds kicked up in the afternoon, with gusts up to 36.8mph.
The format was fast lap time of the day with pre-gridding based on lap times from prior sessions. It is consensus among the competitors that this is the preferred timing format.
Competition was extremely tight with approximately 1 second separating the top five finishers in Stock Class. Albert Gavieres came in first with a very impressive 1:28.7. Doug Chan came in second with a 1:29.1. Richard Seegman (a.k.a. “The Sheriff”) squeaked by in third, clocking a 1:29.7 in only one session because he decided to go off-roading in the dirt in his twitchy-butt car.
1st place received a free alignment from Evasive Motorsports and 2nd and 3rd place received Speedventures gift certificates.
The Street Class podium saw some familiar names with Ben Rigaud scoring his second 1st place finish with a lap time of 1:26.6. Nam Yoon, after placing first in the last 4 events, was knocked down to 2nd place, with a fast time of 1:26.9. Fil Craciun came in 3rd with a 1:27.5 after receiving some quality instruction from pro driver Charles Ng.
1st place received a free valve adjustment from Tony Fuch Racing and 2nd and 3rd place received Speedventures gift certificates.
The Modified Class really stepped up the competition by shattering the lap recorded at SOW from the previous year. Jim Tway clocked an amazing 1:22.7 to secure 1st place. Ed Lee and Mike Tsay battled all day and swapped positions at least 4 times during the day but Mike was able to squeak by with a 1:23.2 in the last session of the day while Ed managed to clock a 1:23.5.
1st place received a free full fluid swap from Rising Star Motors and 2nd and 3rd place received Speedventures gift certificates.
Hope to see you all at our FINAL event of the year at Streets of Willow on December 4, 2010… cheers!
