You Make the Call

In a nod toward those old NFL spots that gave viewers the opportunity to play referee, we’re going to emulate the series with racing incidents when possible.
In the following video, NASA Arizona ST2 racer Chris Wynne seizes an opportunity to pass three cars in one corner. Wynne made the pass on two cars, but ended up spinning off track to the inside due to contact. So, for the purposes of this exercise, stop reading now and watch the video clips.
What call did you make? The NASA Arizona race director said initial contact was a racing incident, but the follow-up push warranted a DQ for the driver of the stock car. Wynne admits to being a bit greedy in trying to get three cars in one turn and consulted with the coaches from Racers360 to help him figure out what he could have done to improve the situation.

Rain, Cold, Dirt, Warm and Fast Laps

Arizona racers saw it all in March, with some late seasonal weather mixing things up a bit. Despite a last-minute track change to Wild Horse Pass, Super Touring had yet another great round of racing.
For those in the social media game – check out the new group for the NASA Arizona Super Touring series here. We set this up because the forums are moving from the NASA Arizona website to the national website, and this gives us another great resource for asking questions, discussing races, cars, and coordinating activities.
The great news is that our groups are growing! We have lots of prospective racers finishing up new builds or refreshes, cars moving between classes and new racers coming from the excellent comp school program. Super Touring 4 is looking at some great growth. We may see as many as 11 cars by the end of the year! Super Touring 2 also

NASA Arizona Super Touring Kicks Off 2021 at Arizona Motorsports Park

We kicked off the NASA Arizona Super Touring 2021 season at Arizona Motorsports Park in January, and it was interesting to say the least. Some unusually warm weather led to some great racing conditions after a close call with rain the day before.
Arizona Motorsports Park, known as “Arizona’s Safest Road Course,” is a 2.26-mile, 16-turn reversible track with a few passing zones and one big challenge: a sound restriction that forces the NASA crew to set up a single file of cones on one section of the track to ensure that competitors remain compliant with the local sound ordinance.
Saturday the track was run in the clockwise configuration, and the Super Touring competitors kicked off the season with gusto: In a mixed-class race with 944 Spec and Spec Miata, pole position went to Ken Orgeron in his No. 199 BMW M3, followed by Erik Davis in the No. 6 M3 and
