Great race lots of fun but not as good as results. We started 2nd fell to third on start, boxed in by Viper. Porsche 997 took lead and I got around Viper. Here is the news release from SCCA.

For Immediate Release

SCCA Northern Conference Continues Sunday At GingerMan

SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. (July 13, 2014) – After light rains on Saturday dampened the track and storms soaked the facilities overnight, the sunshine and warmer temperatures brought lots of speed on Sunday at GingerMan Raceway, with a handful of track records falling early in the day for Round Eight of the Northern Conference Majors Tour.

The SCCA National Championship Runoffs-eligible classes were divided into seven race groups for 21-lap races on Sunday.

Highlights included:


Group 5: John Kachadurian watched Tom Patton and Jonathan Start throw down the gauntlet on Saturday in GT-2, too far back to challenge. A new set of Hoosier slicks and some changes to the set-up, and Kachadurian’s No. 80 Chicago Motor Cars Porsche GT3 was a player in the action on Sunday.

Start led the opening three laps in the No. 51 Kalin Construction/Hoosier/Carbotech Dodge Viper before Kachadurian ran his Porsche by in turn 10, bringing Patton’s No. 50 Red Line Oil/Hoosier Tires Sunbeam Tiger side by side with Start on the back straight before turn 11. Start held him off that time, but less than one lap later and Patton was in second, chasing for the lead.

In the chase, Patton locked up his rear brakes and spun back to third behind Start. Just as he had cut Kachadurian’s lead back under five seconds, it happened again – this time just in front of Start – and Kachadurian had the space he needed to run to the win.

We did lower the track record again Sunday!
