During the offseason, I decided to move the 944 into SP3 class and compete for the 944 Cup. This took the car weight down from 3080lbs to 2750. I was excited to see how the car drove at the lighter weight in a new class.
The first race of the weekend was a 45 minute night race..my first night race. Most of the practice was done the night before in the rain. Fortunately, the track had dried up before the green flag dropped on Friday night. I spent most of the race trying to catch a faster Cayman in the corners and ended up taking 1st place in class and 3rd overall. It was a lot of fun and definitely a challenge.
Race two and three were 30 minute sprint races. We had 33 Porsche 944s gridded in the same run group. I had pole position for both races and ended up finishing 1st in both as well. Here’s a great picture from turn one at the start of the race.
