For the first time, SCCA club drivers had the opportunity to drive the already legendary Circuit of the America’s Formula 1 track, commonly referred to as COTA.
Rossini driver Danny Steyn was up to speed quickly, putting down the 2nd fastest in the first semi-dry session, and then followed up with a 4th place qualifying time in the dry. In the race Steyn hung on to the leaders only to fall back to 5th.
In a bizarre twist, the race marshals gave the drivers the one-lap-to-go sign twice, and the final last lap race to the checker flag was disallowed, which robbed Craig Berry and Chris Haldeman of the positions they deserved.
Check out this amazing video from inside Danny Steyn’s Spec Miata showing the frantic last lap scramble with all five drivers going 5-wide into Turn 13 with seven corners to go. Racing does not get more intense than this!!!
