May 19, 2014 - NASA Great Lakes @ Pitt Race
This past weekend, May 17th and 18th, Ron dusted off his driving suit and pulled the #272 Acura Integra out of the garage for a glimpse of the sun for the first time since August 2012. The NASA Great Lakes event at Pitt Race was both NASA's and Ron's first visit since 2010. On the docket was the challenge of changing classes and the loss of 27hp. After a yellow flag marred race on Saturday, Ron set out to take on the Performance Touring E track record during the Sunday races.
Sunday morning the rain clouds parted, the sun came out and the air temps stayed cool - - the perfect combination for grip and power. Ron ended up running the majority of the race under the current track record of 1:09.2 ultimately setting the current record at 1:08.4
The day ended with the car being loaded on the trailer, albiet with some electrical gremlins that reared its head during the final race on Sunday. All-in-all a successful first outing for 2014.
Next up is a 3-driver outing for the inagural Allegheny Karting Series May 31 - June 1.
