(My posting on the DSR Forum)
As Sherman reports, we did have a good turnout for sports racers - and there were more Staudachers than Stohrs! Too bad David Locke (WF1) had spins in both races, because he was untouchable with 3-4 seconds on the rest of us. I heard he made the fatal mistake of not getting the clutch in and killed the starter during his spin on Saturday. I should probably not have run the car at all, as I was experiencing horrible shake at high speeds that I thought must be out of balance tires. It was not the tires (after trying two sets in three sessions) we discovered the rear tripods were worn - lots of slop. I did not run the Sunday race. Hal Pringle and I worked late Saturday patching up the right side of the car due to contact with an FC on Saturday - a young ex-kart driver in a FCC who ended up winning overall Sunday and setting the FCC record. He is a talented you driver, but needs to learn some patience driving in "mixed" fields. I am replacing the two inboard tripods and plan on getting back to MO for one of the two races in Oct. Love that track!
Jon Staudacher was not there, but his two other cars were. The damage seen on my car (DSR #12) was the result of the coming together with the FCC (Gregory Stemple?) who DNF'd the Sat race because of this incident.
Glad to have a photo of the damage - some of the parts are still missing...
