Race Report TT COLUMBUS- Saturday June 14, 2003

Anxious. the best word that can describe everyones feeling as this second season of miniZ racing got underway. After a one month recess from Season I, all members were ready to race once again for points. Defending Season I Champion Mark Saunders starts the season right by taking top podium for both mod sedan and stock rally. John Vallo comes up with an upset finish in the F1 class debuting with his Jordan F1 entry.

Visiting racer Kevin Hicks (aka Kev71h) from San Jose, California joined the mayhem entering his mod F1. With foam tires and towering stack of 12 FETs, his open wheeler was a screaming demon. It was great to have him race with us.

This season the rally class made it's debut as an addition to the championship series and proved to be an experience to remember. The excitement of this first day didn't come without problems as we encountered difficulties with the laser counter. Rather than having the computer register our times we had to resort to manually entering each car as they passed the start/finish. a little tedious but it's all good. better than nothing at all.

The following is the partial standings from this round reflecting only the podium finishers for each class. This will be updated pending confirmation of remaining positions:
