Congrats to 8legs/ScotcH
 
Awesome driving, well deserved 2nd! I was watching in 5, looked like you almost had him by the end, just ran out of laps to pass. Wanted to congratulate you in person after but I guess you guys were off getting drunk already. :P

What a welcome surprise the CTCC was too, I didn't know they did that. Dropped the boring formula ford/mazda/atlantic stuff. The CTCC was the 2nd most interesting race of the day after the main event.

I think Arek won dude... I watched every second of live timing and he just got by right at the end. Great drive, Congrats!

Holy crap, no way! I swear I never saw him ahead of the Subaru after the initial reshuffle - guess the Subaru went past again during the in lap. Man, congrats to the power of 10! I know how much it meant to you to win at MoSport.

Considering we put the engine & transmission back in the car on wednesday night, it's an even bigger accomplishment :)

great drive, was @ corner two watching as the subaru hit traffic and slowed him just enough for you to gain ground. The pass just before the finish was just amazing *th-up* *th-up* highlight of the day

ScotcH 07-25-2011 10:17 AM

Thanks guys! It was a super fantastic weekend!

Yeah, traffic allowed me to close the gap, then I was on his tail for a couple laps, when my crew informed me it was last lap .... It was now or never! I set it up so that I got an awesome launch out of 10 (where the subaru is a bit slow), quick downshift to 3rd to get a bit of a jump, and drag race to the finish ... I got him by maybe 2 feet. 0.017s :)

Glad you enjoyed it, and glad I could represent the BMW brand at such a great event! I'm super pumped :D

Ya awesome pass out of 10 watched the drag race on the jumbotron -- definitely the highlight of the weekend

And now I have ur signature to auction off in my program :p

Good race!

very nice win

BigD 07-25-2011 10:31 AM

Speaking of the Jumbotrons, how awesome are those? Ron Fellows hasn't owned the track for more than a few months and it's already improved in awesome ways.

cormier 07-25-2011 11:21 AM

Oh ya the screens are awesome for sure I hope we see them in more locations soon

After watching a race on a corner with a screen it feels dumb to be without one

The subaru got caught in some lapped traffic, and that allowed me to close the gap. I tailed him for 2 laps, then made my move on the last corner!

Btw, my name is Arek ;)
