Memo Gidley Wins GT Class at Thunderhill and Bovenberg Tops Crowded Sportsman Class

IndyCar driver, Memo Gidley, was brought in by BAF Racing to do one thing: win the race. He did not disappoint. He took pole position and led every lap on the way to victory in the BAF Racing Chevrolet Corvette.
The Sportsman field was packed with many cars, all with a great chance to win, but Pete Bovenberg came on top in his ARG MBO Motorsport Honda Civic. Gary Sheehan won the Touring Car class in the GoGoGear.com/Konig Wheels Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Doug Makishima won the Super Touring class in the Summit Tech BMW M3.
Gidley was the fastest qualifier, but was followed very closely by Rob Harper in the AP Racing/BC Forged Chevrolet Corvette and the AFE BMW 335i of Larry Bani. Gidley managed to win while Harper had mechanical issues. Finishing second was Edgar Lau in the Intellectual Ventures BMW M3 and Bani finished third in the BMW.

Thirteenth to Fourth and a Track Record!

This one is a scream. NASA SoCal driver Nik Romano, who usually races his Lexus IS300 in Super Touring 5, had the chance to drive a friend’s Spec E46 in a qualifying race at Buttonwillow Raceway in June. The title sequence a few minutes into the video says Streets of Willow, but it takes place at Buttonwillow.
Qualifying races are shorter, so drivers need to make things happen in a hurry to finish well, and Romano comes up just short of a podium finish, starting from 13th and finishing fourth, and setting a new track record on a configuration he’d never driven before. The video is all the more enjoyable with a split screen that shows his footwork, and some interesting characters on the bottom of the screen when he doinks a shift. Enjoy.
