ON THE COVER-We feature Robert and Mike Harman in their Class 10 Lothringer that has been winning races in three different series lately. They have had a remarkable winter of successes with La Rana, SNORE and now SCORE, winning Class 10 at the San Felipe 250 out-of 24 starters and placing seventh overall in their Lothringer. Congratulations to the brothers Harman. Although Neal Grabowski usually shares the driving with brother Mike, at San Felipe they elected not to take the time to change drivers; lucky they didn't because they only won Class 5 by 4½ minutes in their sparkling Class 5 racer. It was the second win in a row for the team, having taken top honors in Class 5 a the SCORE Parker 400 as well. Our congratulations to all the Grabowskis who work hard to keep the car race ready.

Soap Box ••• To Whom It May Concern: I have been racing with your , organization for quite some time. Within the last year you have made some major changes in your organization and race procedures. The majority of these changes have not benefited the ones who are the racers. I have been involved with many different race promoters, and the majority of them cared about their racets. I hope your organization will be the same. 1. ENTRY FEE: What did this increase do for the racer? The pay back did not increase. As far as the t. v. coverage ( what's that?), if you were to take a poll of the racers, you would be amazed at what they think about this. You have taken this family sport and made it so expensive that even persons With a really good income can't afford it. You are probably saying, "What's a couple of hundred dollars?" It's a lot to the average racer. As for your last couple of races, I think your total entries indicate something is up. You can win overall in a very competitive class and not even get your entry back. 2. CONTINGENCY: Look at your last two races. Where was everybody? Forcing the contin-gency distributors to be at the I' ..,. -·• - -~ races, does this help the racers? No. The racers are interested in contingency no matter what. The name of the game is getting as much support and products to help the racer. I don't understand why you would restrict who and how the racer gets his product from just as long as the racer gets his products. Why does 76 or any other company have exclusive right to sell their products? Does this help the racer? What happens if the racer uses TRICK RACING FUEL? I had the opportunity to talk to a Trick Distributor and they told me that they could not sell their product at your races, as 76 has Exclusive rights. Does this benefit the racer? I understand that contingency needs to be monitored to assure thatthey(contingency),do benefit the racer and pay the racer for advertisement. This can be done with little difficulty. As with my past experience with contin-gency, they rarely pay and you have to chase them to get the product. So does restricting and making it difficult to become a contingency participant benefit the racer? 3 . DRIVERS' MEETING: Should go back to the morning of the race when everybody is awake and have taken care of their race needs. It's tough enough to get to the races, set up a· pit, then go to tech and contingency, then wait around for 7:30 p.m. for this meeting. When you changed this, did you think of the racer? As far as the slide show, why? At this last drivers' meeting you didn't even show the new drivers the course markings. Isn't this also a driver safety meeting? What about the prompt time the meeting was started? If 7 :30 is the time of the meeting, then start at 7:30, not 8:00 p.m. In conclusion, we, the racers, really enjoy La Rana but the majority of changes that have been made do not benefit the racer. They make it harder for them. Remember this is not a profession for the majority of us, and when the fun and affordabil-ity of racing with La Rana is no longer there, we, the racers, will move to the other racing organizations in the Southern California area. Concerned Racers For La Rana Desert Racing Volunteers are invited to climb on their "Soap &x" and fill this space with their thoughts about what is good and what is not so good about the state of the sport. Your words, short of being libelous, will be print-ed. So, send along your praise or damnation on your Soap &x topic to Dusty Times, 20751 Marilla St., Chatsworth, CA91311-44o8. Trail Notes ••• THE VEGAS TO llENO RACE is over and it was quite a trek. A great entry, 237 motorcycles and a few quads took off at dawn's early light, and at the more sedate hour of 10 a.m. the 62 cars took off heading for somewhere west of Pahrump, NV. The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze and in the south the weather was perfect for the race. Jeff Stiles left first in the Raceco he shared with brother Jim, and they stayed out front in the car ranks all the way, had a good lead most of the distance, and lost nothing at gas stops. They had a perfect race. Most of the other cars had trouble, in fact only 28 finished and the last official finish was the 1600 Lothringer of Peter and Josh Rosenstein, six and a half hours behind the winner. Everyone remarked on how well the course was marked and how nice the pit route book was, making things easy to locate and get set up long before the first car was due. As of now we don't have official results but for sure the Stiles brothers won the bash for cars and Class l / 2 in their 10 car. Mike McGee and Jimmy Tucker were second, 50 minutes back in a Class 10 Raceco, and Dan Martin and company that included Billy McCool brought the 1600 in third overall and first in Class 1-2-1600. Old Buddies Malcolm Vinje and Mark Hansen brought the Class 7S Ford in fourth overall and first in Class 7S. Bud Feldkamp and Jerry Penhall finished 18th overall but were first in the Stock Pro Spec trucks ranks. Paul Krause and Ty Davis won the motorcycles overall on an Open Kawasaki, just four minutes ahead of Greg Zitterkopf and Dave Ondas also on an Open class Kawasaki. Third overall and Open Pro just nine seconds behind Zitterkopf on a Honda came Johnny Campbell and Jeff Capt. Both Kawasaki and Honda had massive pit support, and KTM wasn't far behind. At the awards organizer Casey Folks thanked one and all for their support, his staff and his 465 volunteers that manned the road crossings, the checkpoints and the pit areas. It was a monumental effort and it came off very well. Read all about it next month in Dusty Times. Our congratulations to Casey Folks for a job well done!

The company has grown from offices in a one-time Chicago meat warehouse to annual sales exceeding $800 million . .•,N Reodviewing the pa1s tth1ree decadeshof acitbvity ink the U .Sh, KMC Pre~ident Henry a sees severa mi estones as avmg een ey to t e company s success. Noda lists Kawasaki's street motorcycle performance image precipitated by the models of the late 1960s and early 1970s -and the popularization of personal watercraft, brought on by the introduction of the JET SKI watercraft, as foremost among those milestones. He also rei;ognizes the role played by the 1975 start of production in Lincoln, NB ( the first Japanese-owned vehicle plant in the U .S. and the nearly 25 years of the "Let the Good Times Roll" slogan as being paramount to company growth. " Kawasaki has experienced much in its first thirty years here, 11 said Noda, "and it is with great pride that we look back at our accomplishments as well as looking forward to what promises to be an exciting end of the centruy. 11 • The company's well deserved performance has been fostered as well through its racing heritage that is so much a part of Kawasaki's first 30 years here. It has fielded successful motorcycle racing teams on the pavement, in the dirt, and since 1972 on the man-made Supercross courses in the world's largest stadiums. With the late 1970s enthusiast inclin.ation towards competitive personal watercraft activity, KMC aided in the growth of a race sanctioning organization for the category. Last year Kawasaki became the first company to launch a full service factort racing effort, propelling JET SKI watercraft to the nat/.onal and world racing titles . Along with recognition of its performance oriented products, Kawasaki is also viewed as a benefactor to the many communities in which its facilities are i based. Company officials take pride in knowing that involvement has covered a , wide spectrum -from "loaning" Lincoln production workers to the city for public works projects, to involving all of its employees in the selection of causes for corporate donations. Noda views this component of Kawasaki's growth process as one of his most personally satisfying. "It's a measure of our success as a company that we are in a position to play a positive role in many areas of community aid.and support. And as we continue to grow,· Kawasaki will also , grow its commitment to others. 11 j Dusty Times

Entries received by Aprill were eligible to participate in a lottery system which rewards race teams with favorable qualifying positions depending on the luck of the draw. The lowest number drawn gives the competitor's car or truck the advantage of starting last on qualifying day, July 2. The advantage of starting last comes from being able to obtain increased traction on the groomed gravel race course because preceding race cars apply a layer of rubber to the hard-packed surface. Late entries are placed at the top of the qualifying order as they arrive at race headquarters so that late-corners will face a less favorable surface on qualifying day. RIDGECREST RACE REPORT -As most local drivers know in March there was a date conflict between SNORE and La Rana Desert Racing on March 9 with SNORE in the El Dorado Valley near Henderson, NV and La Rana running the California 200 on the course near Ridgecrest, CA. The result was that SNORE had about46 starters and La Rana about 56 starters. SNORE can live with under 50 starters, being a non-profit, all volunteer outfit. hut La Rana, with a paid staff and office facilities in Apple Valley will have a hard timt• making ends meet with that low an entry figure. At any rate they had good weather for the Ridgecrest race and Kyle Taylor drove his Class H Chevy inro the overall victory at 3:55:06. Danny and Marty Letner were second overall. first in Class 150 in their Trophy-Truck Chevy and Mark Post with co-driver Jerry Whelchel was third overall and first in Class 200.

SCORE/TECATE SAN FELIPE l50 Ebberts & Grizzle Do It Again By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo I~. ;,.::<¾ ,.,,.,. , .Z.W ,;.;-; .. j/ ·w.. ·" Dale Ebberts and Brent Grizzle followed their Parker overall victory with another overall victory at the SCORE San Felipe 250. Ebberts drove most of the distance in the Jimco A-Arm car powered by a Fat VW. The old air cooled engine just won't die and go away. Brent Grizzle and Dale Ebberts followed their victory at Parker with a victory in Baja, taking the Pro class overall win at San Felipe in their VW powered A-armed Jimco. The SCORE San Felipe event has a more relaxed atmosphere than most events, surely due in part to the fact that it's a mere 250 miles long, and in part to the location. It's hard to find a more casual place _than San Felipe. It brought out the entry, with 166 cars and trucks taking the green flag, and a gaggle of bikes and ATVs also. For this event the schedule was easy, with tech and contingency on Friday, an early morning start on Saturday for the bikes, and an 8 a.m. green flag for the Trophy-T rucks. The Pro classes took their starting flag about 15 minutes after the last Trophy-Truck left, at 8:30. The weather was good, with maybe a bit less breeze than the racers would like, but terrific for the sun worshipers amongst the spectators. The course was a bit different this year, although racing started at the arches at the entrance to town, and headed out through the dump as always. However, when the racers got up north of town they didn't cross the highway and take the beach route. Instead, they paralleled the highway (more or less) all the way up to and sl!ghtly past Three Poles, then went across Highway 3 and moved northward to the neighborhood of La V entana. At that point the course did a broad hairpin and headed back toward the south, and Highway 3 again, crossing it in the Borrego area. From Borrego it ran down across Diablo Dry Lake, and continued south, past Huatamote wash, to a difficult uphill sandy wash about 30 miles south of there, and a tight, rocky ~ area, and out onto the old • Puertecitos road, and a straight Fourth in class and fifth overall came the Tom Bradleys, Sr. & Jr., who run a shot up into San Felipe and the Type 4 in their Aaceco, had a fading motor but got their good finish. finish line. Bob Gordon ran close, almost tied on time in his Toyota powered Chenowth and he led at Borrego: then he lost his power steering, but later regained thi lead on the road, but Grizzle beat him on time and he was second. Mark Miller had a pretty clean day in his Porsche Chenowth, no big problems to report and he was third and in class, just 2½ minutes behind. After the Trophy-Trucks the Raceco. In third it was Troy Class 1 cars were first off the line, Herbst in a Porsche powered but they were cautious for the Mike Smith, and Tom Bradley in first five miles or so because word a Type IV powered Raceco was had come back from the Trophy-fourth, followed by Greg George Trucks to SCORE officials, who in Carlton Post's Type IV passed it along, that the spectators powered Jimco. had built a hellish booby trap Ebberts, who was going to have about four miles out.

But Gordon, near La Ventana, there was a George, Miller, Bradley and virtual tie for the lead between Ebberts were in good shape. They Bob Gordon with his big V6 were still close at Borrego, where Toyota in a Chenowth, and Nick Gordon led with about 51 Baldwin, with a Chevy motor in a seconds over Mark McMillin in his Porsche Chenowth. In third now it was Ebberts, followed by Miller and Bradley, all within three minutes. The only Class 3 entry Todd and Jim Gatrell, and they had. big trouble when the Chevy Blazer had a transmission fire. They thank the Anda taco crew for their help and transmission fluid, and they finished, the winoer. Dan Smith takes off sideways in his Class 8 Ford; he had pre-run carefully and · had no serious problems along the way to winning Class 8 in the F-150 and he was also fourth overall, with almost the same time as Mark Miller. Gordon lost his power steering, and MiHer lost some rear shocks, while somewhere down past Morelia Bradley had a flat and put a small front tire on in place of his rear. Everyone was still moving at a good clip, and still close. Down by Huatamote, with the tough stuff still in front of them, Gordon had a lead of about two minutes, with Ebberts and McMillin tied for third. Miller ran fourth here, three mintues later, followed by Tom Bradley, Jr. in fifth. Somewhere still further down the road Gordon' blew a corner and Ebberts went past him. McMillin had a flat in the uphill wash and elected to drive on it to the pit, which was only a mile · away. But the A-arm broke, and then he needed welding also. As the leaders headed toward the finish it was Ebberts in front, Gordon, Now Ebberts had to stop to put Brent Grizzle, his partner, into the driver's seat for the run to the flag. Grizzle was the driver of record and had to be in the car at the finish. But he'd been in Katrnandu (honest!) for an agricultural convention and had just flown back, so he was jet-lagged and tired, but not too tired to keep up the pace to the Dave Westhem has a fancy new paint scheme on his Class 8 Chevy and it must be lucky; he and Randy Salmont were second in Class 8, with no big trouble.

finish line. Gordon had gone past again, but Grizzle stayed on his tail, and finished close enough behind him to secure the win. Gordon, thinking maybe he . should have let co-driver Frank Arciero get in after all, was second. In third it was Miller who'd had a pretty clean day, and the Bradleys, whose motor had just about given up from about five miles out, were fourth. McMillin lost about five positions with his repair, and George and his co-driver, Carlton Post, moved into fifth place. Class 8 was a small but choice group, and the lead at La Ventana was virtually a tie between Dan Smith in his Ford and Dale White in his Chevy. Dave Westhem ran third in his Chevy, with Dave Crinklaw fourth in a Ford. Smith had pre-run carefully, and had developed a "Game plan" which he was now following. But he was thinking ahead all the time to that nasty uphill wash. It had him "scared to death". At Borrego he had a lead of five minutes over White, who said he "ran out of talent" a few times and tore up some fenders. W esthem ran third, only seconds later, followed by Crinklaw, who had flattened a tire when he hit a rock and broke a wheel. Joel and Kyle Whitted got their new Jimco A-Arm car roaring in the hot desert Jerry Penhall and Ben Schlimme have a FAT Toyota tucked in the tail of the and moved from third to second at the checkered flag and had no big woes. Penhall, ran smoothly all the way in the dust and took third in Class 10. Smith's worries were for nothing. He made it through the wash just fine. But Westhem was stuck in Huatamote for 40 minutes. Smith motored on to take the win, never having got out of the truck for anything. White finished second about four and a half minutes later. Westhem was third followed in by Crinklaw. But the post-race tech uncovered something illegal on White's truck, and disqualified him. That moved •Wes them to second and Crinklaw to third place. Alto-gether, out of eight starters in this class there were seven finishers. Class 10 got the next green flag, and at Check 1 the lead belonged. The Class 5 · cars ran tight most of the way. Neal Grabowski ran third, so passed on a driver change and carried on to lead on the southern loop, ran out of fuel. but his crew was handy so he went on to win Class 5 at 11th 0 /A. Michael James and Mike Kalicki, defending point champion, ran first, then second in Class 5, had no serious trouble and finished second by four minutes. George Seeley soars over the crowd at a choice viewing spot, and he and Bill Gasper had a good run in the new Bug and finished close in Class 5, third. Dusty Times to-Robert Harmann in his single seat car. He had about a minute on Jim Pierce and Jim Kirk in. their Toyota powered car, and they were right around a minute up on Kyle and Joel Whitted in an A-armed Jimco and Kevin Basore and Bill Hernquist, teamed in another A-armed Jimco, and tied for position. In fifth it was Carlos Rivera, in an A-armed Chenowth. Only three minutes separated the five of them. When they got to Borrego Hernquist and Basore were first on the road, but Harman had them on elapsed time, by about five minutes, running just behind them.

Harman lost reverse and first gears, and managed to get stuck, but got going again and stayed in front. He had about 11 minutes by the time go got to Check 4, at Mile 164. The Whitted brothers were second, with no power steering, followed by Arturo Honnold and Ernesto Santana in their Jimco, in third. Rivera, who was driving all the way, was now fourth, with no power steering, and having some motor prob-lems. Running neck and neck, and battling for fifth place, it was the team of Jerry Penhall and Ben Schlimme in a Toyota powered Penhall, and Rod Muller, who was soloing in a Pontiac powered Jimco. He'd had big brake problems, and was finding this-course "the toughest". As Harman neared the finish he braked for a washout and - wham! - a Class 1 car ran into him. It tweaked Harman's neck smartly, but didn't hurt the car, and he kept on going, knowing there was a horde of cars coming behind him. Harman got the win, but sat in the cockpit of his car, gingerly testing his neck, and hiding from all the enthusiastic bear hugs and back poundings his crew wanted to inflict on him. The Whitted brothers were second, followed in by Penhall and Schlimme, about four minutes behind them, Muller, in fourth.

The Class 5 cars started next, and at the second checkpoint, 65 miles into the race, it was Michael James in front in his convertible. He had a minute on Neal Grabowski, who's hard to recognize without the red checked paint job he and his brother sported for years. In third it was George Seeley in his Snoddy convertible, who spent a minute in his pit, followed by Morgan Malacca in a Penhall sedan, two minutes back. When they got to the Borrego road crossing Seeley, James and Grabowski all arrived at the same moment. On elapsed time Seeley was in front by a flicker, with James and his co-driver, Mike Kalicki in second place, and Grabowski third, eight seconds behind them.

He had about seven seconds on Scott Webster in his ORBS. In third place it was Patrick Burton in a Homebuilt car, followed by Danny Porter in his Porter. Don Lampus,Jr. was fifth in hisJimco.

The Lampus team was fifth, reporting only being high-centered on a bush for a few moments. The new Pro Truck class was next off.the line, and there were seven of them for this race. They had a busy race. At Mile 24 Rodrigo and Rogerio Ampudia, , in a Chevy, were in the lead, followed by Steve Barlow in his Ford and then Charles Harris in another Chevy. Gustavo Vildo-sola and Brian Stewart had a long pit stop to replace a steering box on their Ford, while Todd Clement and Rich Minga had alternator belt problems with their Ford. When they got to La Ventana, it was still the Ampudias in the lead, with Barlow second, and Dave Ashley third in his Ford. But about 10 miles past the check point Ashley's ttuck broke, and he coulan't radio for help because the radio wouldn't work if the engine wasn't running. By the time they got to Borrego, Vildosola and Stewart had moved into the lead, with Rick and Jamie · Galles in second place in their Chevy. Clement and Minga were now third, with Ampudia fourth, but his motor was missing, and a faulty fuel pump put him out a bit further down the road. Barlow was now sidelined with power steering trouble.

In third it was Clement and Minga, with Barlow a distant fourth. In Class 7 the early lead belonged to Larry Roeseler in a Chevy. Steve Lawrence, second behind him in a Ford, was having some rear shock problems, while Chris and Rick Taylor had fuel line trouble with their Ford. G:c\ry Mecham got through Check 1 with his Ford, but not to Check 2. Roeseler had no trouble, and had a half hour on Lawrence by • • i:'-"m •• :< Check 2. The Taylors now had a starter problem because the starter housing was broken, and every time they stopped to mess with the fuel lines the car wouldn't want to start. When they figured out what it was they jammed a rock in between the starter housing and the frame to keep the housing from backing out. Then the truck started just fine. So they had to carry the rock with them for the rest of the day. Roeseler's co-driver, Jerry McDonald took over for the second half of the race, and he had no problems either. In fact, his passenger, Benny Metcalf, said Dave Winner two wheels the Toyota, whose fuel pump cut in and out, and he also got stuck on the sand hill, but never lost the lead he held all the way to victory in Class 7S. Gerardo and Carlos lribe swapped off the driving chores this race, had a few problems, but they soldiered on to finish second in Class 5-1600, just seven minutes behind. Dusty Times the most exciting thing that happened all day was when they hit a booby trap and he spilt his Dr. Pepper. Lawrence put his son, Tim, in for the second half, and he was running a couple of hours behind, with brake probiems now. The Taylors were also·still moving along, rock and all. Roeseler and McDonald took the win by two and a half hours, followed in by the Lawrences who finished with no brakes and a rigbt front flat. The Taylors were third, just ten minutes shy of the cut off time. The 7S trucks went next, and in this group it was David Winner in May 1996 front in his Toyota, leading by 14 minutes at Check 2. Bob Graham was in second place in another Toyota, and he'd already had a flat. In third it was Charles David, in a Ford, about seven minutes back. Winner's fuel pump was cutting in and out, but he stayed in front, and had 29 minutes on Graham and his co-driver, Brady Helm at Borrego. -David was another 10 minutes back. Winner got stuck for about 15 minutes on a sand hill, but managed to stay in front, ar,d went on to take the win. Helm lost his alternator belt, and the motor was dring, so he stopped to put on a new belt. When he was ready to go on he discovered that the sand was really soft, and he was really stuck. It was an hour and a half before someone came along willing and able to pull him out. In the meantime, David ran into trouble, and never got to Check 4, but Sergio Duron, in a Nissan, was still running, although over an hour behind Helm, and in danger of not getting to the finish line in time. Helm and Graham took second place, and were the last to finish, as Duron ran out of time. Class 3 had only the entry of Todd . !}7' Page 13

His lead was down to 12 rnintues at Morelia, and now it was Rob MacCachren, in Olliges' truck, corning after him. Olliges and MacCachren had no problems and moved up front to take the win.

In third it was Covarrubias and Sanchez, who reported a late flat tire. Then Davila and Brassea were fourth, with Dittfield and Moynahan fifth, and last. Class 9 took the green flag next and they battled hard right down to the end. At Check 2 it was Luis Guevara and Federico Montes in front in their Tubular design car. But they had only a minute on Daniel Mora and Eric Fisher in a Chenowth. Then came a tie, five minutes later between the team of Jesus Luna and Bill Rodriquez and the team of Ed McLean and Phillip Breedlove in a Jimco. McLean was celebrating his 70th birthday. When they got the the Borrego area it had evolved into two close races. Mora and Fisher were in front, with just a bit over three minutes on Guevara and Montes. Last year's champs, Brian and Jim Jeffrey, were third a minute later in their Lothringer. Then about nine minutes back came McLean and Breedlove, just 21 seconds in front of Alfonso LaCarra and, Lalo Mayoral in their Jimco. The. Jefferys never got to the next check however, having reportedly lost their motor. Montes and Guevara had some trouble with their shifter, and lost second gear about 30 miles before the finish, but managed to hold onto their lead, and continue their tradition of success at San Felipe. This team was second last year, and took first place in '94. Fisher and Mora, who had no problems other than a too-soft rear suspension, finished a close second, only four minutes later.

third in another Toyota.. By the time they got to Borrego Williams had hit a rock and taken out his front wheel d:rive, so he was a two-wheel drive truck for the rest of the day, and not too crazy about the idea. Russell was still in second place, now only about 11 minutes back, but Richardson had run out of gas and lost about 45 minutes. Williams said his truck handled differently in two-wheel drive, and he stopped every now and then to get out and check things over. Then, when he got to the infamous uphill wash he got stuck. But the nice Andataco folks were still there, and they helped him, so he could move right along, still in first. Meantime, Russell was in second, and they'd been dicing a bit, but then Russell also got stuck, and he got stuck, and stuck again, probably 10 times in all, and then he just couldn't make it up the last hill. Richardson, who'd been fighting ingition troubles, moved up to second place at the finish, and he was also the last in the class to get home. Class 11, another class that often enjoys shortened courses, had to run the whole thing this time also. There were seven of them. When they got to Check 2 it was close, with Victor Barajas tied with Hector Sarabia for the lead, and they were only seven minutes in front of Juan Mayoral and Ruben Espinoza. In fourth it was Eric Solorzano another 15 minutes back. All seven made it through here. At Borrego, which all seven managed to reach, it was Sarabia in front, with about 11 minutes on Barajas. Mayoral and Espinoza ran third here, another 15 minutes back, followed by Solorzano in fourth. When they got to Check 4, at Mile 164, Barajas was still in front, with 24 minutes on Sarabia who was now second. Mayoral and Espino~a were still third, only eight minutes later. Solorzano was still moving and was the fourth one through this point, but now was nearly two hours behind the leader. Only four made it this far. And only one made it to the finish line. Barajas was reported to have lost his motor, and Sarabia just disappeared. Mayoral and Espinoza made it to the checkered flag just seven minutes before their time ran out. Their ecstatic crew and friends shower-ed the car with beer as it r~ed into the post-race area. They said they'd had no flat tires, but had been stuck three times. They were ready to drink some of that beer. Of the Sportsman entries, none finished in Classes 3, 6, 7S or 10. But two of the four 5-1600 Sportsmen made it back. They were required to run the full course also, in the same time limit. Enrique Troncoso and Rudolfo Valenzuela had a little collision with a Class 10 car, and · lost a fender, and they did the last couple of miles with no oil pressure, to take the win. In second place it was Chris and Joaquin Gonzalez who lost their hood, and didn't have too many problems. They were about 45 · minutes in back of the winning car. The CRB didn't have any serious adjustments to make to the finishing order, so it was all over but the celebrating fairly early on Saturday night.

Robby Gordon put his Ford truck through its paces at SCORE's San Felipe event in March, to take his second win in a row in the 1996 Trophy-Truck series. The race attracted 12 trucks, and their start time came between the motorcycles and ATVs and the Pro Classes. There was a big gap after the last biker and before the first T-T, for obvious reasons, and then after about a 15 minute gap behind the last truck, the first Pro Class car took off. Unfortunately, the party animals had been at work overnight, and a huge.booby trap had been built about four miles into the course. Apparently it hado 't bothered the bikers, for word hadn't filtered back. The first Trophy-Truck to hit the obstacle, built of telephone poles, tires and packed dirt, was Ed Herbst. He tore one of his Ford's rear trailing arms off, sent a quick • message out to his crew, and work was started on repairs right away. But in the meantime, since they started at one minute intervals, along came a couple more T roph y-T rucks. Larry Ragland took a tumble, his Chevy going completely over, but managed to pull off to the side under his own power, to start working on the damages. It had torn off a tire. They replaced that and he went on, but the impact had also Dusty Times loosened the exhaust and that caused his spare to catch fire about 10 miles down the road. They put out the fire and went on, but that wasn't the end of it. Most serious! y damaged by the booby trap was the lone Mexican Trophy-Truck entry, Javier Espinoza, who was out for the first time in a new truck, a Chevy. He rolled hard enough to put an end to his race, nearly landing on Ragland, and was seen later in the day walking very gingerly, his back and neck hurting; as he was on the way to let the doctors have a look at him. Down the road a bit, Rob MacCachren was very quick in his Ford, and had the lead for a while, but suspected something was wrong in the right rear corner of the truck. He made a quick stop got his pit to check for a flat, they saw nothing wrong, and he went on. Ten miles down the road a shock reservoir let go, and he was in need of work. In the meantime, Ivan Stewart had his Toyota in front at check 2, but he had only a minute on Robby Gordon who . was working up through more traffic. Ivan had startd fourth, but Ragland and Herbst had both been waylaid by the booby-trap, and Jason Baldwin, second off the line in his Ford, had blown his rear shocks, and pulled out for repairs, leaving Stewart in front on the road, a big advantage.

Mantopoulos/krg Win Last Bridgehampton Rally Constantine Mantopoulas and Barry Berg in their Audi 200 Quattro won the rally officially. not all that far behind Kreibich. and their final tally was a fast 30:43. t , .. )~" .,, ..... ••····· ... ,,. ;;>k Uifa1Wi%;..,L,,@,,%bi/4ib,s .. ,, ,};. ,:;;;;::J~ t ,,:,: Bruno Kreibich and Jeff Becker ran as the "zero" car, and were setting the pace on the track at Bridgehampton. They did set fastest time for the ratty at 30:08. The fifth running of the Bridgehampton Rally was likely to be the last. The rally was run on the grounds of the Bridgehamp-ton Race Circuit (a short distance from the town of Bridgehampton in Long Island, New York), using a combination of the paved track and dirt/sand access roads for special stages. The circuit's owner has announced that he will close the facility in July in order to replace the historic but minim-ally-profitable track with two golf courses. With the closing looming, the New York Region IS.C.C .A . decided on one more fling for the special stage crowd on the old site. The rally was lengthened from the pr'evious 20-25 miles to about 3 7, to qualify for coefficient two sta-tus in the S.C.C.A. Northeast Division PRO series. And a cere-monial finish was planned in the town of Bridgehampton itself, at a local pub where the post-rally party would be held. {Previous Bridgehampton rallies and rallys-prints had started and ended at the track.) During the weeks before the rally, it shaped up as a battle between two New York-area entries, Ivan and Olga Orisek {Audi 4000 Quattro) and Con-stantine Mantopoulos {Audi 200 Quattro). They had previously . staged a close race for first in the season-opening Apple Hill Rally near Albany, New York last October, with victory going to the Oriseks. But preparation on the _ Orisek 'scar was not completed in time, so that they had to scratch their entry. (Being New York Region members, they quickly volunteered to help on the organ-izing team.) This made Constan-tine a shoe-in if he didn't make a serious mistake.

GRANADA-DAKAR RALLY RAID Picnc Lartigue Docs A Hat Trick in a Citrocn Text & Phot.os: Martin Holmes ..c.,~; '"~~¥,{~, Third overall and in T3 class were Jean-Pierre Fontenay and Bruno Musmarra in a Mitsubishi Pajero. There are trails across the desert, and also some nasty looking rocks. Page 14 Forty-seven year old Pierre Lartigue, three times champion cross country driver, won his third successive Paris-Dakar, at the wheel of a Citroen, which were in a class of their own this year. After a gentle start he and M. Perrin took the lead on the seventh section out of sixteen, when Ari Vatanen, leading at the time, suffered one of innumerable punctures which afflicted the top drivers and finished a stage on three wheels. With literally super cars, Citroen's only serious rivals were Mitsubishi, who contested all three passenger car categories and won the prestigious produc-tion group Tl: Citroen only contested the top class T3. The event started once again in the South of Spain with the 295 etitors facing unusually wet. ""'" ~._a!l/;'.Z.;_ ~~~.w--·· ~§,~~;~-:~;;;~~~' · ~-· !£~~~ ;·:;:·;-,,~, ~';~-~\ff;~~t:~ t ':"..,_ ,;f! l't\ ' Pierre Lartigue with Michel Perin won his third successive Granada-Dakar, took the lead midway in the Citroen ZX Ra/lye and won by about 56 minutes. The Citroen team, four strong at the start, finished 1-2-4-5 in Dakar. Quite a performance for Lartigue and teammate Ari Vatanen, who led most of the first half. conditions. Instead of running competitive sections through the mountains, only two short timed sections were held, firstly a sprint on gravel surfaces which the winners covered in 13 seconds, and a shorter section through a very wet and muddy 4km course. Shinozuka_ won the first, Saby the second, both successes for Mitsubishi. From that moment onwards however the lead was always going to be held by Citroen, whose drivers won all except three of the remaining sections as well. It was a formid-able team with Lartigue, Pierre Wambergue, Ari Vatanen and S. Servia. Once in Africa Vatanen pulled ahead and Mitsubishi suffered their first major problem, when Shino:uka had a rare accident and his car ended up in a ravine. "This car is quite the most powerful car I have ever driven", lamented the veteran of over 20 years of Mitsubishi competition. Even-tually with the help of his service crews he could restart, many hours behind. On the seventh section Vat;men lost the lead and Lartigue went, ahead with Cit-roens lying 1-2-3, after Bruno Saby had a big accident and had to wait for help from his service crew before being able to carry on. His teammate Jean Pierre Fontenay pulled up to third place before he fell back with suspension trouble. As the rally came to the halfway halt, the Japanese driver Masuoka was third in the last remaining trouble free Mitsubishi, on his first outing with a T3 Model car which he was gradually learning ·how to drive competitively. The rally halt was at Zouerat in north Mauritania where the air was charged with controversy, mostly surrounding Citroen. Two days earlier one of their service vehicles crashed mysteriously and the driver died. Immediatdy there was suspicion that the vehicle hit a landmine which had not been removed after the recent fighting in the area. But two other queries remained. The vehicle may have crashed because of a high speed puncture, and the vehicle may bave burst into flames and burned fiercely because special tuels were being carried on board. The second scandal was that five of the remaining seven service crews were excluded for arriving too late. This severely jeopardized Citroen's chances in the days to come. Chad Hall and Chris Jensen were the first Hummer to the finish line, 65th 0 /A, but Rod Hall and company finished right behind them. It was 'the first ever finish by an American team driving an American built vehicle on this event and they were proud of that. Vata·nen 's visions of success were further hampered by an accident which dropped him from fourth down to fifth place, but he climbed up one place when Masouka swerved to avoid an oncoming truck and broke his suspension. By this stage the rally was leaving the relative safety of the open deserts and was how in green Africa, the areas which the organi:ers feared for safety reasons.

This tidy sport utility is listed as the Ssang Yong Special and was driven to eighth overall and in T3 class by Giacomo Vismara and Mario Cambiaghi.

After years of conflict with the sport's governing bodies, the Dakar was again accepted into the FIA Cross Country world cup. The standard of organi:ation had been consistently improved since the early days of blatant adven-ture, which ended with the death ten years ago of the event's founder Thierry Sabine. This year the top cars had to fit 34mm turbo restrictors, estimated to drop power outputs by some 50 bhp, but such have been recent chassis and suspension improve-men ts that the T3 cars were further advanced compared with the cars in other classes than ever before. Some interesting novelties were to be seen this year. Hummers were brought from America and bemused the Dakar habitues with their 6.5 liter diesel engines, their 3 .9 ton weight and a top speed of only 140 kph. The Korean SsangYong company were again active with a vehicle featuring Mercedes engine and chassis and Nissan six-speed transmission. There were pri:es for nearly all the serious contenders. Nissan won the T2 category with 1995 FIA Tl champion driver Thierry Dela.vergne while Mitsubishi finished 1-2-3 in the production Tl category headed by veteran Jean-Pierre Strugo, with Pajeros. Toyota won the category for diesel passenger vehicles with Sarra:in. Once again the event was full of emotions, which started a few days before the start with reports of the death of one of the event's most significant promoters. Mano Dayak had worked along-side Sabine in the former days when the event crossed the Tenere desert in Niger and opened up doors which seemed impenetrably shut. This kind multilingual man was chief of a travel agancy in Agadez, and without his help an event of the scale of the 'Dakar' could never have passed the Sahara. He was one of few enthusiasts from Niger ever to have entered the' Dakar' as a competitor. There were ironies in his death: he died in an aircraft like his friend Sabine, and he died in the cause of his beloved T ouareg movement. It was the activity of rival factions in recent years in various African countries which ended the chances of the 'Dakar' passing through Niger. Of the 295 motorcycles, cars and trucks that left Granada only 121 ( including 50 motorcycles) reached Dakar last January.

AUSTRALIAN STADIUM OFF ROAD GRAN PRIX Wild a Crazy Stadium, Downunder. By Darryl Smith Race fans went to Canberra Speedway in Australia, hoping to see some action as the Off Road cars competed in the Holden Rodeo/BFGoodrich Stadium Gran Prix. What they got was a night that was more spectacular than had ever been seen before in the country. The man-made track was one of the toughest yet and this combined with packed fields, . resulted in a show that will long be remembered. As expected the Sports Trucks & Tin Tops put on some top racing. 14 cars in all, which included two trucks debuting in Australia. One was the Wayne Attard, USA ex-Walker Evans Dodge, the other was a locally built stadium truck. Fully supported by Mazda was the Bond · Roll Bars built machine powered by an awesome twin turbo Rotary, and driven by Gavin Mickle.

•••••• -~.ii~i.c;❖ .-.-.-.... -... tThe Straight Poop' From the BigWaywo SAN FELIPE 250 • Young Bullhorn, our recent ex-Prez and half of the Club's reigning 'Driver of the Year' team, had the classic Checker-like run this race: Haul ass, break some shit, deal with it, and still win gain' away! It was picture Baja weather as a total of about 200 bikes and cars left on this 250 mile loop starting and finishing in San Felipe. Iritat-ingly, this fine SCORE event was marred at the start by some locals who used old tires, plywood and dirt to build a wall-like jump about three miles out from the green flag. The first two Trophy-Trucks flipped after hitting it. One of them was a Mexican entry whose driver reportedly got out of his totaled truck and 'went nuts' chewin' the asses of his country-men who were peeking out from behind the nearby bushes. Other than that, this race was an excel-lent example of why the Checkers have always been drawn down to the freedoms of Baja. When brother Mike turned up sick, Robert Harman once again got a chance to solo the family Class 10 car. And solo it he did. Starting at the rear of the pack, Robert moved up through the class, while seemingly stopping at every Checker pit for something or another. Shit-happened, it was handled, and he continued on. When our hero stopped in at Al Long's pit out at the end of Zoo Road for fuel, four other Class 10 cars were already in for fuel or other service in the pits at that location. Now even those Form-ula 1 pit geeks would have been impressed if they coulda seen our boys in action in this last one in, first one out precision Checker stop. Later, Robert radioed to the last Checker pit: "Gimme a time between me and the leader". About then he flew by, and Crowley waved and radioed back, "Hey Pude, you are the leader"! Brother Robert didn't leave anything unused during this im-pressive march to the money. When he took the 'checkers' seven minutes ahead of his closest pursuer, the Harman's family single seaterlooked·and sounded bad. The rear cage had been badly rammed in, there was no first or reverse gears, and the rest of the tranny sounded like there wa a cat inside. Robet Harman, first in Class 10 and seventh overall. This Club hot shot also showed a glimmer of class and maturity, when at _the awards presentation, he made a point to dedicate his victory to the memory of his brother Checker Ray Bennet. Congratulations on a great run, Dude! The Club had nine Checker cars in this race, with eight finish-ing and one not. Here are the rest of those stories: George Seeley got back up to his regular third place spot on only the second time out with his new Class 5 car. But since he gases with BFG and has been noticeabiy absent at recent meet-ings, I have no details other than the typical: "Hey man, he looked good when he came by me". Bryan Moynahan drove a 5-1600 car to an acceptable fifth place finish despite having to stop for awhile to fix a fuel pick up that only /Jicked up about 10 gallons from the fuel cell. Joe Giffin, our Club Secretary, fought handling problems all race long in his 1-2-1600 car, but still was the eighth car across the line in that 21 class. During his run down the Matomi Wash he diced with the Bates' tandem for awhile before Gary went on by. Then a bit later, he came around a corner and saw that his Checker bud had just rolled it off into the rocks. Some-thing didn't look right, so he stopped. 01' man Bates had suf-fered a badly cut hand, but he had tied a red rag aroung it and was in-sisting on continuing on. Unself-ishly, Joe got out and helped get the car straightened around, started up, and Gary on his bloody way. This is the type of attitude that makes the Checkers the brotherhood that it is, and he surely deserves·a big Checker Atta Boy for once again so clearly demonstrating it. Ironically, after the race, it was Giffin who checked into the hospital back home for some unrelated knee surgery. Get well Dude! ' Speaking of the Bates'. BJ suffered through some c.v. boot problems early in the race, with Tiffany ridin' tail gunner. At the halfway point Gary took over, with his wife replacing Bruce in the rumble seat. Mr. & Mrs. Bates then ran across Giffin, rolled it, visited with Joe again, and then lost a c. v. joint almost within sight of town. But, it didn't take long before Gary found some non-Checker help installing the spare c.v. joint he'd borrowed from the last Checker pit (it's amazing how nice that ol' fart can be when he want~ somethin'). This dogged persistence produced an 11th place finish. Tom Koch, with Reider in the passenger's seat, had shifter problems in his open car. At the driver change Jimmy Tucker took over, with McGee replacing Danny, but the team could only manage a 12th in Class 1. Kevin Davis's non-Checker co-driver, driving 'Sprinklerman's' Class 10 car, had a flat early and pulled into the first Checker pit at 3 poles. His non-Checker chase crew showed up at this John Files pit right about the same time as the car, and excitedly joined right in. Then, one of these 'yahoos' banged on the roof and sent the car out before a ratchet strap was installed to hold the spare tire down in it's cradle. Well, of course, it wasn't too long before the spare exited the vehicle. And, not too much longer after that, he had another flat. When Davis's engineman finally limped Kevin's 3 'wheeler' into Greenway's pit, the damage had been done and Kevin could only salvage a 12th in class. Files benevolently decided not to ma"ke an issue over this un-Checker-like pit screw up since Kevin's co-driver had gone out of his way to radio a repeated warning to all the other Checker drivers behind him, citing the danger after ·the start and exact location of the 'Local's jumt>' they were headed for. Billy Robertson started Dan Blain's Class 10 car and almost immediately had electrical problems with the engine. 'Creative wiring' was eventually diagnosed as the problem, i.e. two coils wired together.? Hey Frenchie, you haven't been lettin' Taber work on that thing again, have ya? Frenchie & Boner Billy finished 13th in Class 10. Morgan Maiocco and his Class 5 car were the Club's only DNF this race as his non-Checker partner ran out of time just short of the finish line. Shocks and front end failure caused the down time. NEVADA 200 -Two Checker cars ventured up to this five lap SNORE event run on a 40 mile loop southeast of Vegas, and both of them came home draggin' their tails. Generally the Club does good at the SNORE races we run, but not this time. Fresh from their big win down in Mexico, the Harmans broke a kingpin on their second lap and parked it. And, Duenas's non-Checker co-driver took a turn at rollin' Da Penis's car. This time the damage to Mikey's 1-2-1600 buggy was more severe than last time and the car was withdrawn. Oh, well... We'll be back! LA RANA UPDATE . At Eddie's second race of the year, his entry dropped off to 40 plus cars from the sixty some entries at his first race. At that rate his fourth event might be a very lonely affair indeed. To put it bluntly, Castro appears to have taken a good local off road race promotion and flushed it down the drain with his delusions of grandeur. Besides the Checkers, Core has also abandoned Eddie, with now Fair being the only established support team ·still supportin' this sinking ship, Hmmm? Now why ddtsn't that Fair does, Castro is gonna have to go back to what worked, and do it pretty damn quick, or kiss his promotin' ass good-bye. VEGAS TO RENO · In a definite role reversal compared to our other off road races that include motorcycles, at this event the cars were far out numbered by the bikes. In other works, this was basically a classic long distance point to point motorcycle race that also allowed the cars to run. About 280 bikes/ quads left in the early mon;1ing before about 60 cars. This format apparently suited our six Checker entries just fine as every one of them finished, and three of them won their class! Due to a pressing deadline, what follows is only a superficial overview of how our boys did. More details and race stories regarding this inaugural event will follow next month. Jimmy Tucker and Mike McGee pushed Mike's Class 10 into the winner's circle despite suffering through two simultan-eous flat rear tires early in the race. Our heroes were also the second car across the finish line in this cold and windy race. With Reverend Roy and Capt'n Hook ridin' shotgun, Dan Martin and Billy McCool drove to a big win in Class 1-2-1600, and also the third car to the finish. Shortly after the start, Dan demonstrated the classic desert barel roll to the Rev, who was on his maiden voyage in a Checker race car. With some driving help from Tony 'Millie' Vanillo, Walter Prince picked up a first in Sportsman Class in his open buggy. Congratulations to all our winners! . surprise me? Hey Fair, wake up! Your continued support of this gouger is just postponing the inevitable. But no matter what Brian and Scott Steele were close in_ their 1-2-1600 single seater taking a second in class behind their Checker teammates, and ·the fifth overall car. Frank and Sean Krepz broke a torsion bar early in their 1-800-collect sponsored 1-2-1600, but recov-ered enough to grab a fourth in class. Good Run Guys! Our final finisher was the Dead Cat Racing T earn, banged and bruised, but still runnin' hard at the end. Seems Brother Josh rolled a reported three times before turning the Rosenstein 's 1-2-1600 single seater.over to Peter. Considering this was the Kosher Express's first outing in a real race car, a finish dnd seventh in class would have to be looked on as a qualified success. Good show guys. Five Checker pits spread out over this 500 mile course, with individual chase crews covering the spots in between. And, with 340 entries, this tBest in the Dez' event had the look of a winner on it's first time out . Casey Folks definitely deserves an Atta Boy if for nothing else but his substantial effort in bringing this legendary desert race back to life.

Tyler Mort driving Everett Paul's car would take the holeshot and hold on for the first lap until Berri would go past. Brian Holloway ( vet-14) was up to third with Schultz, Jerry Wald ( vet-46) and Rob Chavez ( vet-33) giving chase. These positions would stick until the end and set up the other half of the main event. VORRA's 11st Season Opener ~~~~ I . Who called for the rain? With 80 degree, sunny sky weather on Friday and Saturday leading up to the race, who would have thought to load the mud tires. But on Sunday morning the skies opened up and natures water truck took over. All the racers kept asking VORRA officials, "What are you going to do"? Track conditions were less than ideal even on Saturday. The valley the race track is in all drains into a natural low spot right on one of the straight-aways in the track. With careful grooming, it was determined that it could be raced with a one line track and any passers were going to need a snorkel; at any rate, it was an ugly sight, and was nicknamed the "sippee hole". A new corner this race was developed as the back straight-away was lengthened and the east turn was tightened to near 180 degrees in hopes of slowing the cars down a tad. The track was widened also and was about 40-45 feet wide all the way around except for the "sippee hole" and the front straight which was 50 feet wide. This was requested at the rules meeting to create more passing areas. A few changes to this years VORRA staff including the absence of announcer Garland Dyke. Garland is on sabbatical for a while to enjoy the racing more. Replacing him is last years head tech inspector Brian Butcher. · Brian had things under control and was able to keep the crowd excited with the racing with new wake up songs and an announcing style different from what the VORRA regulars are used to. One other change to VORRA short course is in the scoring of the overall winner of the day. VORRA has always taken into account the laps completed at a short course race but only in the event of a tie breaker. The new scoring gives 1 scoring point for each lap completed. Added to those points is finish position points; 20 for 1st; 16 for 2nd, 13, 11, 10 etc. At. the end of the day these are added up and the highest number of points wins for the day. The overall season points is still calculated the same; 25 points for entering the race, 3 points for finishing a moto, 3 points for every car you finish in front of and the finish position points. With all the rain on Sunday morning scaring off a few racers, 46 cars decided to enter and take a bath in the mud. Taking the track first as always was the nine car Sportsman Novice class. It was really exciting to see these new drivers out on the wet, slick track. Taking the lead off the get go and the first few laps was a newcomer I oldcomer to VORRA Chris Vian (6). Steve Millward (61) and Joyce Biggs (81) decided to take a mud bath on lap 2 and not join the rest of the race.

Vim Nickel ( vet-26) would round out the eight lap finishers for third place. M oto 2 would have less attrition and the same good action. Ace Bradford (208) took the lead off the green followed by Steele, Pinheiro, and Ketten with Nickel in close tow. Nickel's more experience got him around Ketten while Bradford, Steele, and Pinheiro battled up front. On the white flag lap though Bradford's motor let go as the mud was caked on. This would gi:ve the moto win to Steele with Pinheiro second and Nickel third. Division II had some fast boys and it was Sam Berri (149) taking the holeshot and the uncontested moto win. Tom Schultz ( vet-13) would hang on for second and Everett Paul (243) rounded out the finishers for moto 1. Mato 2 had a dry and tacky track that brought some good racing action as all starters With the top five from each division going to the main the stage was set for a heads up, winner take all race. Taking the lead early was Sam Berri with Tyler Mort giving challenge. Steele, Pinheiro, Holloway and Schult: would battle for third, top spot in vet class.

At the end of the day the real heroes were the 4 W D towers who spent the day pulling cars out of mud and off the track. If it weren't for these guys, the race could not have been a success.

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP SWEDISH RALLY Tommi Makinen Ran Hard. And Won In The Snow Text & Plwtos: Martin Holmes Tomas Jansson plus a Celica pre-pared by the Paraguayan dealers T oyotoshi for 21 year old South American champion Marco Galanti. Tommi Makinen got his revenge for suffering from the famous Mitsubishi stay-put order 12 months ago; this time he was urged to go flat out to win, while the preferred man last year, Ken-neth Eriksson, made a disappoint-ing first appearance with his new team. The only person voicing any disapproval was Sweden's ral-lying legend Erik Carlsson, who said it would have been better for the sport if a non-Scandinavian driver had won the event for the first time! Carlos Sainz finished second on his first outing with an Escort, Ford's best WCR result for nine months and the first time th9 had scored a fastest stage for seven. A disaster for Subaru with their tire studs on the first evening when the cars had to run some stages on gravel rather than icy surfaces, set them back. Four dif-ferent makes finished in the top four places and scored fastest stage times, three makes (VW, Opel and Ford) were in the top Formula 2 placings. The Mitsubi-shi team had a grand slam perfor-mance, leading the world cham-pionship, winning overall and top six in Group N was impressive, although they only entered one The route of the three day event held few surprises. Based at Karl-stad with the first night spent at Falun, the main novelty was using two stages side-by-side on the fro-zen lake at Torsby on the second day. There were a high number of 16 service parks though after the Safari Rally there will be a limit of four per day. In the last days before entries closed, both Ford and Subaru announced four car teams and the entries of two former World Champions. Sub-aru's trump card was the appointment of former Toyota driver Didier Auriol while Ford's surprise was Ari Vatanen. Ford's biggest problem was the inexpe-rience of their top drivers Sainz and Francois Delecour at this event; between them they had only covered 20 stages in previous years. Much of their champion-ship hopes rested on the shoulders of their veteran guest driver Stig Blomqvist. Subaru's entry of four identical cars for World Cham-pion Colin McRae, Eriksson, Auriol and Liatti was a surprise move. Although Toyota are out of the official championship this year, the Swedish team were active with cars for Juha Kank-kunen, Thomas 'Radstrom and One special feature of this year's rally was a Press Confer-ence held the day before the start, .

May 1996 off the road for a while and later went off for good on stage 6. Jur-gen Jonasson held the lead from then on. Mats Jonsson went off the road on stage 3 in his Astra, while the Clio Maxi of Jonas Kruse had a broken driveshaft on the first stage then a double punc-ture later on, but was still third in the category. In Group N Kenneth Backlund made a bad start spin-ning on stage 1, and then again on stage 6, but was in the lead ahead of a big surprise, the Mitsubishi Germany driver Uwe Nittel. Arne Radstrom's Toyota had power steering trouble, while initial leader Mika Korhonen Mitsubi-shi went off the road for a long time and when he saw the pro-posed restart order list for the second etape he went home. Colin McRae began his attack right away on Etape 2. On the first stage of the day he rose from sixth to fifth, on the second stage he was fourth, and gradually, very gradually, through the day he was able to close on the leader. He was 95 seconds behind Makinen at the start of the day, 76 behind at the end. The predicted snow which Mitsubishi had feared would ruin Makinen's chances had not fallen overnight in the expected quanti-ties, but all the same the roads were very slippery. Pirelli 's disas-ter of the day before had been traced to the carbon tips of the studs breaking free, and the driv-ers being harder on the tires as a result of thinking that the studs had come away altogether at that point. In fact, this made things worse, because the rest of the studs were wrenched away from the rubber, pulling t~e glue and large chunks of the tread blocks with them. It was clear the prob-lem was most serious when the tracks had gravel showing through. Pirelli 's alternative Y type tire had a bigger tread block pattern and was the best for Sub-aru but the team did not have enough, so M tires were used on the cars of Auriol and Liatti. Auriol was not really at ease. "The car seemed fine the first time I tested it, not so good the second and on the rally I found it quite difficult. I hope ifl have the chance to d'rive a Subaru again, I will first be able to adjust the car to my style of driving." Ford continued to be cau-tiously optimistic. Would Carlos go for victory? "Too early for that. This is only the second day of my two year contract. I am concentrating on finishing as well as I can." Delecour had the front electronic differential discon-nected which made the car turn-in better but caused the rear to be too loose, while Blomqvist went off the road, hit a rock which bent the cross member and suffered road penalties. He also struggled with no brakes for a while. Dusty Times

Sears Pressure Washer Product Evaluation Text & Photos: Homer Eubanks This Sears gas powered 6.5 hp washer can put out 2200 psi of serious cleaning pressure. While out splashing about in mud puddles or plowing through fine silt beds off road toys can accumulate their share of dirt and grime. Caked on mud and grime might be a reflection of how much fun one has had, but when it comes time for clean up how do you keep the fun fresh in your mind! I found a pressure washer from Sears to be the answer. With their new line of high pressure washers Sears has found a way to bring the effectiveness of a high pressure car wash to your home. Until now the only way to get those grimy projects really clean was to load everything up and head to the local car wash. Having your own home based pressure washer allows you to keep all your toys looking new and takes a lot of effort out of many home projects. When shopping for a pressure washer you will find Sears to be a great place to shop as they offer several models to choose from which can boost normal garden hose water pressure anywhere . from 500 to 220 psi. Pressure washers come with two basic power sources, electric or with gasoline engines. Our choice was the gas powered unit for its versatility. Smaller unit's pricing started around $200 while our heavier duty unit ret_ailed at $800. For it's overall variety of uses . we chose the Craftsman model . 580.751650. It's powered by a 6.5hp ( 190cc) overhead valve gasoline engine making it capable of handling any cleaning task imaginable. Its portability makes· it ideal for working around the house or dragging it out to the race track. It came partially: assembled and was ready for use I in about an hour." Rated at 2200 psi the unit is capable of pushing three gallons of water per minute. Admittedly this unit is overkill for most off road applications but lends itself well to many tasks around the house. Be forewarned if your spouse sees this new toy you'll quickly be drafted into projects ranging from spraying blinds to blowing loose paint off the house before repainting. However, several accessories are available to take much of the work out of these normally tough projects. The bigger the job the more help this pressure washer can be. Water pressure is boosted many times from the common 20 •· to 70 psi found coming from a •garden hose. This high pressure physically breaks up packed on mud and flushes it away. Our unit adds detergent as a pre-wash to help break down the grime which reduces the amount of pressure needed to clean the surface. Operating instructions suggest first applying the detergent and then letting it soak in for a few minutes before the high pressure rinse. I had hoped to be able to apply the detergent under pres-sure but this system doesn't per-mit this. As is, it works great for cleaning engine compartments, or knocking heavy mud deposits off, but some elbow gr.ease is still needed for shining up the paint on the family grocery chaser. If I had a gripe about this sys-tem it would be the plastic quick coupling for the water feed hose. After getting involved in a project I stepped on the feed hose while moving the washer and the coupler broke off. No problem, the hose fitting screwed directly into the wasl}er's brass fitting. It's just that heavier plastic is needed in the coupler's construction if it is to be used by clumsy people like . myself. The first test was cleaning up the dirt bikes. Motocross racing has a tendency to pack mud into areas which are impossible to reach with normal cleaning methods. Detergent was applied to the dried on mud and allowed to soak in for a few minutes before this high pressure rinse. Oops, first off I peeled one of the kid's stickers off the front fender. No problem, a simple twist of the wand's nozzle brought the high pressure stream down to a man-ageable level. Having the unit at home as opposed to having the timer tick away at the car wash meant one can take the time to aim at each built up deposjt. To test the unit's effectiveness on really built up grime the no:zle was aimed at the under-carriage of my old pickup. The engine, trans-mission and differential all look new again. Many years of road grime had accumulated on the dif-ferential housing but a few passes with the high pressure wand brought about a clean housing. Around the house uses can vary greatly. The adjustable node can produce a gentle spray or a power-ful work force. My first house project was to take all the blinds outside where the dust disap-peared and the original shine returned. Spraying the house's exterior windows with the special general purpose house wash made the annual cleaning of the win-dows a simple chore. With the turbo node installed the spider webs and accumulated dust disap-peared from the eves of the house as well. Grease and built up dirt deposits on the walkway and decks were easily pushed away in a matter of minutes. The garage floor really came back to life. Although regularly swept the floor h~d accumulated a nice layer of crust which had become accep-· table to the eye. After a few swaths of the pressure hose it was apparent the concrete should have a lot more shine it. The pressure washer got through each project so quickly I found myself looking around for other projects to tackle. All the cars got a cleaning. The hood was raised and the engine compart-ments were cleaned .. In fact the son-in-law's 200,000 miles of engine compartment grime was knocked out in a few minutes. Washing teh motor home is always a dreaded chore, But I found the pressure washer made this a simple task. The unit is so simple my teenager even asked to help. The unit stands ready. Just connect the garden hose and start up the gasoline engine. If soap is needed simply insert the pickup siphon tube into the detergent bottle and set the wand's no::le to low pressure. After allowing the suds to soak in the wand's no::le is pulled back into action and the pressure makes quick work of the cleaning project. Cars with road grime require installing the ·optional 3x7 inch brush to the pressure wand. The soft 1 ¾ inch bristles won't harm paint yet are · still enough to get down into the tight spots. After the scrubbing is over a high pressure rense delivers as good a wash job that can be had at any car wash. After using the pressure washer on the many varied tasks around the house I wonder how I ever lived without it. I found the gaso-line powered engine offers the mobility needed to tackle any task. With the supply hose hooked to the motor home the unit is ready to work at the race track or other remote locations. The washer's portability makes it ideal for working around the house or dragging it out to the race track. Engine compartments collect their fair share of grime. The Sears power washer knocked out 200,000 miles of engine grime in a matter of minutes. Page 34 Caked on grime on the differential makes the vehicle unkempt looking. A few passes with the high pressure wand brought about a well cared for looking differential. May 1996 Dusty Times

This is an opportunity to draft some new guidelines for-FAIR as I will discuss and any concerns voiced by FAIR members. FAIR has voted in to assign or volunteer a Race Manager for every event to co-o rd i na te pit support. This Manager will also be paid $100 for California races and $150 for out of California races. Bob Steinberger wants to drop the requirement of two pit people for each race. He feels we can take care of pit assignments ~ith vol-unteers, and generate a bigger pool of pit support if race teams are not obligated to provide two people. Let Bob know your thoughts. FAIR van continues to be under major repair, a complete motor and trans rebuild again. It seems we have been using cheap gas and driving the old van too hard. We need a few good van drivers to take care of it. Anyone interested, please call Bob Stein-berger at PC!. Future Activities for FAIR: June 8th-9th, Fun in the Desert; August, Nostalgia Dinner; Oct-ober Desert Adventure; Date to be announced, FAIR Swap Meet. FAIR meets the first and third Wednesday each month 8 p.m. at the Holiday Inn. Located on Harbor Blvd. at the 91 Freeway in Fullerton.

Secondly, I can't understand how Jason Romans' picture was confused with my car and, most of all, the confusion with the protest over the 'boost bottle' on Jeff Carr's motor. There were five drivers out of the top 7 cars that felt this was an illegal device for Class 9. The rule book was consulted and no mention was made of it. Usu-ally if a device is not mentioned, it is not acceptable. I would like to applaud SNORE's Tech Director, Bill Shaply, for an excellent job hand-ling everything in an unbiased and democratic manner. As for the unforgotten claiming rule, if you ask any active Class 9 driver, I'm sure they'll admit openly they're aware of it. Brian Lopez was not involved in any way with the claiming of Jeff's motor and deserves no ill repute. WRIGHT Dusty Times Sincerely, Joel Mohr "964" 9420 FHnn Springs Ln.

The Supra was built specifically to contest the SCCA's new group S class for two wheel drive cars with large displacement engines. The best battle of the rally was the scrap for fourth, fifth, and sixth. The group 2 class winners, Bill Malik and Renn Phillips brought the Valencia Volvo 240 home fourth, just seven seconds ahead of Dennis Chizma and Terry Stonecipher in the GT class Motor Sports Unlimited Mitsu-bishi 3000 GT VR4. A one minute penalty on ,the first day of the rally, dropped Roger Hull and Sean Gallagher's Goodyear Eagle Talon well down the standings, but a spectacular string of quick times brought them up to sixth overall and third in GT, only 13 seconds behind Chizma's Mitsu-bishi supercar. Looking sharper than ever, the Retro Rally 1972 Datsun S 10 driven by Mike Whitman and Kevin Linville slid home seventh overall and second in Group 2. Finishing eighth were Lon Peter-son and Bill Gutzmann in a slightly newer car, the 1996 Kia Sephia. The new Kia Motors entry was completed on the Tues-day before the Doo Wop week-end, so testing time was obviously limited. A bent strut early in the event, was pounded "pretty straight" by Dave Wolin's crew, and Peterson limped to the finish to claim the production class title and 12 important championship points. Rounding out the finishing list with more than their share of hard luck stories were the George Pisek/Mark Ra.thsam Saab 99 Turbo, in ninth, and Rick Beson/ -Tim Sordlich, Norene Tire Mazda Protege Turbo, in tenth.

The Doo Wop national is one of two partial points events that kick off the Michelin series. The national is run concurrently with the last two rounds of the Doo Wop divisional rally series, a northwest tradition designed to provide both beginner and veter-ans with four pure stage·format rallies that encompass all the refinements of a national event.

To taste victory, you have to digest the whole truck after every race . . Victory isn't something you whip up in a few minutes. At Toyota, we've been perfecting our winning recipe for 39 years. We've assembled a team with an endless hunger for success. They ravenously sink their teeth into the tough task of completely disassembling our championship race truck after every grueling desert event, replacing or improving virtually every part. And it's paid off with a 13-year winning heritage of 23 championships and 81 victories. Each time we head out to race, we're not going back for seconds, we're going back for firsts. OUR MINDS ARE ALWAYS RACING
