Buttonwillow PCA Club Race and Time Trial pics

This was our final driving event of the season. We had perfect weather and a good turnout. A lotta Boxsters. Find several pics of Mr. Brad Roberts- Boxster Race support extraordinaire in here.

As for the TT event, I managed to squeak a win by 2/10ths to tie my brother for Zone 8 CC05 Championship points. A good weekend.

Congrats on your result.

It's great reading posts like this, rather than the standard "I just waxed my Boxster" or "I de-ambered my headlights today" posts.

Just sayin'.....

Thanks for the props guys. It was a great event and though I am a lousy photog, Dr. Greg always does a good job of documenting the action. Looking forward to a little refresh on the car for the 2015 season with designs on another Z8 TT championship. We shall see...

Thanks guys.

We now have a nail biter. There is currently no series tie-breaker language in our rules so I am not sure what "tied in points" really means. My brother had more 1st place finishes this year, I had 1 more event and won the season finale. Still waiting for a ruling on this. I suspect we will either have dual 1st place or they will craft a tie-breaker from other racing organizations. If they follow F1 rules I will be relegated to First Loser.

It was a fun season with good competition so the shiny trophy is less important. Tied for 1st place sounds better to me though.

Thanks for the report and the multiple pics.
I was supposed to work that race (as a PCA Scrutineer) but got cancelled because of lower turnout than expected.
I can see that somebody had to talk with the Chief Steward
I might make the first Club Race at Buttonwillow next year.
Hope to see a bunch of Spec Boxsters at the first Club Race of the year: Sebring.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro
