Bunch of fools in this group - Three drivers, three podium-placers! Andrie Hartanto drove some type of vehicle to take home 1st place! Andrie and the invisimobile drove levitated or something around Thunderhill West and used its magic powers to get a 01:20.795. This was obviously more of the car than the driver so let’s just take this with a grain of salt. A REAL driver by the name of Gary Yeung, piloted his Dirty Mango S2000, taking home 2nd place thanks to his 01:20.795, just a hair slower than the 1st place guy in the Mystery Machine. 3rd place finisher Gary Wong took a wrong-wheel drive Honda around the circuit for a 01:23.042 lap time. Probably faster than his Dirty Coconut S2000, tbh.
This was a great day out for all of our drivers. The S2000’s dominance was displayed once again in classes S2-S4 with Gary Y, Gary W, and Sohan “Gary X” Kota respectively leading the way in showing the S2000 prowess.
Excellent job to our who won their places and THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the SpeedSF Challenge! For those who are still chasing podium finishes, more seat time, coaching, and watching videos of the track will certainly get you there!
With class-setting lap times thrown down for Groups S1-S4 + Group X, it’ll be interesting to see what August 30th’s 5-mile Challenge will result in. S5 is certainly ripe for the pickings, as the 2014 class record set by Eric Lin in July 2014 stands at a 03:55.190. Someone PLEASE break that record!
