The WeatherTech International Challenge is Next!


As I write this note I am sitting in the paddock at Mont Tremblant.  You won’t get a full report since the event is not yet over, but it has been an awesome weekend thus far!  The turnout is up from last year, with 16 cars in the Monoposto Classic group and 15 in the wings and slicks group.  Saturday’s races were clean with close racing throughout the field.  As an example, the qual times for the first three places in the wings and slicks group spanned only 0.018 seconds and the margin of victory was under 0.5 seconds!  The Classic race was equally exciting with many lead changes at the front and good racing throughout the field. We also had a great Monoposto party hosted by the Demarests, at which Bill Demarest was awarded the trophy for the 2017 Historic Formula Ford class.  (See above top right.)

Since Mont Tremblant was scheduled one week later than usual this year, there are only a few days between the end of this event and the beginning of the WeatherTech International Challenge at Road America.  The entry list shows good fields, in particular in Monoposto Classic. It looks like everybody should have somebody to race with.

Your Monoposto party hosts this year will be Gail Barrows and Bob Burnside.  The party will take place on Saturday at 6:00 pm at their paddock in the upper paddock (on top of the hill behind the tech garage) all the way in the back.  You will see Gail’s black #08 Crossle Formula Ford and Bob’s black #8 Brabham Formula Atlantic cars located there.  Please stop by to rehydrate and do a little bench racing with your friends.

Have fun and race safely!
