·• Trail Notes ... -· C RETIREMENT - Tommi Makinen has an~ounced that his will be his last season in the World Rally Cup. Tommi ill continue to drive his Subaru for the balance of the 2003 season. His career has covered 16 years-. He entered 134 World Rallies and won 24 of them, a husky 18% win average. He was the FIA World Rally Champion from 1996 to 1999, the only driver to. win four consecutive WRC titles. Tommi said, "It's a decision I haven't made lightly. Picking the right time to stop isn't easy. It's better to stop·when you're atthe top. It's going to be a bit strange next January but now .I will have time for my family and my farm. I'm looking forward to spending more time at home in Finland." A true champion, well respected by all. T. EAM HARDIN -Received a nice note from Jared Hardin informing us that their racing focus has changed and although they will continue to run off road their primary focus now will be in the NASCAR Super Truc_k Series. This series is similar to Craftsman Truck Series, but on an amateur level. M_ost of the races are at Irwindale speedway, in ·Irwindale, CA and their first race was in the middle of July. Eric drove and after trying to get familiar with running in a crowded pack, he qualified 19th and finished 25'\ on the lead lap, He relates that Ryan Arciero and his crew have been a tremendous help and they are so appreciative for this help in a new racing venue. We wish the boys all t-he luck in the world in their new endeavour.

MOJAVE DESERT RACINC CALIFORNIA CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES 'Dennis Boils -In Barstow Heat By Tony Tellier Photos: Trackside Photo Dennis Boyle and Frank ·Hines had a good run through the night, first in Class 1 and that ever coveted first overall in the Lothringer. ,. It was another boiling mid-sum-mer weekend in the Mojave -what else if new? But thanks to some clol)d cover it was semi-bearable. Frank Hines a.nd Dennis Boyle found it ac-tually pleasant-by taking the # 1_11 Motion Tire Lothringer/Chev to the Overall, again. "What a driving job by Dennis!" Frank raved. MOR had 92 starters and a tough 62 finished the race -67% -within the seven hour time limit over the 44 miles. course. The counter-clockwise course straddles Bessemer Mine Road off the Landers High-way and passed the "Rock Pile" twice. When the green flag dropped at 1830 there· was a decent breeze to blow the dust away and give some visibility. Boyle was never heade·d after the first lap. Frank expanded and ex-pounded: "Dennis was fourth off the line and the first car through after the first lap with a one i11inute lead. But the # 146 Steve Croll car was there all night (all over him like ugly on an ape in a cheap S\lit in the rain). We never got more than five 1pinutes on Steve the whole night,· so a driver change was out of the question. It was a four-minute-plus Pauldin Hepler and Dennis Sletten did it again - they took the Class 600 win in the speedy looking Baja Bug. split at the-end. Congrats to Steve Croll, he ran a· great race." Boyle did his five laps in 3:22:37. CIASS 1 -Six starters - four finishers. . Dennis Boyle had trouble getting around a couple trucks-at the start. ''But, a lot of people did get out of the way cleanly; I think that my HID • · lights made a big difference, they could really see us coming. I ran a dean race, nobody got hit or hurt." Dale Hines rode the whole race. They had wanted to do a driver change, and "Frank Hines was suited up, but we decided to gb for the win. Sec-ond place, Steve Croll, was really on the gas." Parmer E1fnes piped up: "The car ran great. Third gear started to slip on the last lap but Dennis babied it through. For the record that (Fields) tranny has 1,200 tniles on it. Not Mexico miles; either, but harsh Barstow, Lucerne Valley and Ridgecrest miles. 1f anyone needs a prep on their three speed transaxle, Rancho Racing Transmission is the. place. The engine has more than that on it and has not missed a· lick. Thanks to Gary (Curtis) for a . bitchin engine. It was another no-flat race on the same BFGs that just went 400 miles. There was not much planning for this race, just go out and race, haul ass.

"I got by everyone in the class, except Boyle, right off the bat. I played chase-and-catch -all · night. I would catch up, then fall back, get close, and then fall back. It was a good race, close and easy to pass in most places. My pumper must have burned up because it was blow-ing smoke in my face. The lights were bent, or something, because they were pointing at the ground. I could only see about 30 feet in front and missed the finish line coming in!" (Remember ·when ·dad Ray just missed overalling the '96 Primm in his ·" 10" car? Ron Brant won in '5:35:02, Croll's time was 5:35:07.) John Hoffman (#155) had "a re-:ally dusty drive" with his two "rookie riders," Mark Patno and Scott "Warp" Speed. "The s_low cars ahead made it hard to see what was ahead." Baja RaGing Products deserves big thanks for sponsoring the race. · Richie Minga was right there to hand out the prizes:.the winner of each class (that had at least three• starters) got a $ 100. - there were 14 classes that qualified -and tossed in $500 for the Overall. When Rich went to give Hines his $500, Frank told him "Put it on my account be-. cause we want to spend that money with you." "Rich was stoked to hear that!

After Steve's two laps, Matt Wright hopped into the car for the · remainder of the race: "After losing third, we had a flat tire in the last lap." Scott Kincaid (#1004) drove the first part with his engine builder, Jeff Hart. They got a flat tire in the first seven minutes but other than that the car ran fine all day.

Now these guys knew going in that they had very little chance of a decent finish but wanted to see what they needed to get in the hunt.

22ND INTERNATIONAL ADAC RALLYE DEUTSCHLAND 2003 Loeb-Citroen Take The G~r~an Rally By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena took the gold medal in Germany in their Citroen Xsara. Loeb won this rally last year, with the same chassis! We had seen it all before. Cit-roen won the Deutschland Rally for the third year running and scored their third win of the sea-son. Sebastien Loeb won this event for the second year in succession, and did it with the same chassis he had used to win in 2002! It was, however, a very close win, by only 3.6 seconds, in front of world champion Marcus Gronholmwho had been delayed earlier when he suffered a double puncture. Fast-est driver on the rally, however, was Markko Martin, but his Ford lost a lot of time on the first day with transmission trouble. The cham-pionship meanwhile is hotting up, with five points separating the top three placed drivers, with Bums still ahead, while Peugeot hold a lead of only seven points in front of Citroen. The second half of the 2003 season opened on the very specific tarmac roads in Germany, roads which were often broken up, and always extremely slippery. Once again rain came down and made the surfaces more greasy than ever. With championship leader Toshihiro Arai absent, the PCWRC category was won for the first time this year by a Mitsubishi, on this event driven by" the reign-ing JWRC champion Daniel Sola who was consistently the fastest Group N driver on the event. The Deutschland Rally was the eighth round in the World Rally Championship and represented the first event in the second half of the 2003 series, in which the ral-lies were going to be smoother, with four events on asphalt and the remaining three on smooth gra~el roads. It was the second time for Germany in the series, but only just, because of difficulties with spectator control in 2002 which made the FlA put provisos on its qualifying for the series this year. Only on the 20th May did the FIA give the final all clear, just nine weeks beforehand. T his is a.rally where stages are run in three dif-ferent regions, each region possess-ing distinctly different characteris-tics. Stages are run in vineyards ro Page 18 the north of Trier, on the military tank test grounds close to Baumholder (where surfaces are often degraded), and on closed public road Southeast around St. Wendel. It is the only world rally held close to the geographic centre of Europe; last year 40% of the 225,000 spectators were from other countries. The rally was held one month earli~r than in 2002. There is a new philosophy of route management, the event visiting each of the three main regions every day, in the hope of better spectator movement control. All except one stage had been changed, though usually only in small details. This year the PCWRC cars compete here, last year it was the Junior WRC. These were changing times in the sport. Wide ranging changes had been proposed by the June FIA World Council meeting and the World Rally Championship Com-mission was in full spate trying to interpret the commands of the World Council and convert these into workable rules for 2004. In the 2003 championship Peugeot, Citroen and Ford have all scored on every round so far. While cham-pionship leader Richard Bums has always scored points when he has finished,. Cyprus was his first and only retirement this year. Only second placed driver Carlos Sainz has now finished every rally this year, but twice out of the points. Peugeot had rotated their en-tries, dropping the gravel special-ist Rovanpera (second on the pre-vious world rally) in favour of the asphalt expert Gilles Panizzi, but there have been recent personal dramas for both Gronholm (an infection in an elbow, six days in hospital) and Panizzi (broken ribs during testing) but both reported fit for the event. Last year Panizzi missed Deutschland altogether be-cause of a shoulder injury. The fac-tory team had also prepared a car . for Cedric Robert, the French federation's officially supported young driver, who came sixth at Monte Carlo and who has been busy this year testing for Peugeot. Citroen were winners of the last· two Deutschland Rallies. Citroen, like Ford, entered a four car team. This was the first rally for Philippe Bugalski in 2003, and his first rally since Sanremo 2002. Bugalski was the 2001 German Rally winner, and rwo years earlier scored Cit-roen a first world rally win. This year Philippe has been busy in de-veloping testing for the team though he is to cont.est the four remaining asphalt events. He had a car identical to the official team cars but run by the Spanish Piedrafita team. Technical changes for this event included larger rear brake discs and engine. Subaru sensed that the start of the smoother half of the season · was the right time to push ahead with performance enhancing modi-fications to their 2003 Impreza in the engine, electronics and suspen-sions. Ford sensed it was time to tackle their transmission troubles, and development of a new hydrau-lic pump which Markko Martin had tested when he won the non-championship EOS Rally in his native Estonia. Latvala had a new co-driver·Mikka Anttila, the regu-lar co-driver for Kosti Katajamaki in the Junior World Rally Cham-pionship. Previous co-driver Carl Williamson was hospitalized with a dislocated leg and pelvic injuries suffered in their accident on the Jim Clark Memorial Rally in Brit-ain. It was, however, Skoda on whom the greatest attention was to be focused. This was the debut competition appearance for the Fabia World Rally Car, the first new model World Rally since the Xsara in Catalunya 2001. Main changes to the car since it was officially launched at Geneva Motor Show in early March have been to under bonnet cooling sys-tems, a new rear wing and exter-nally by a different livery. Skoda's Austrian born Team director Dr. Kohoutek: "It had been plan~ed to introduce the car at the end of the season, but the car is already at least as fast as the Octavia, so October 2003 there was no reason to wait. T his is our year for development, next year we should be able to fight for podium positions and to fight for the victories in 2005." The Hyundai team had a four day test before the event, the first asphalt test for the team this year. This was the first works ti rive for Manfred Stohl who, even at 31 years old, is already a rally veteran. His first world rally was in Jvory Coast in 1991, and he was FIA Group N Cup champion in 2000. Between active competition he is a rally manager who ru,ns Constantin Aur's Mitsubishi in the PCWRC. His most recent world rally, Greece, was his 70th world rally appearance. Mitsubishi made their second WRC appearance this year, again withJWo "Ste.p 2" cars driven by the Finns Jani Paasonen and Kristian Sohlberg and again in a non-championship operation. It might, however, be their last ap-pearance in this particular car. MMSP President Sven Quandt ex-plained "I have not forgotten Alis-ter McRae; but I chose two young drivers for this event to see how they perform on asphalt." One of their "young drivers" was hardly recognisable. Jani Paasonen had recently lost 30kg in weight. 30? "Yes, I was 110kg, now I am 80 ... " It is the first world rally has entered under the company's new name MMSP. The cars were run in exactly the same specifica-tion as last year: all development work is now being carried out on· the. new car to be announced at the end of the season. Only top driver missing was the Belgian Patrick Snyers who had opted to enter the Madeira round of the ECR instead. This if the first of the two PCWRC rounds to be held on as-phalt this year, the other will be the final round, Corsica. Last year there was only one, which drivers could elect not to contest. For reigning champion Karamjit Singh it is his first ever asphalt event! Singh had planned asphalt familiarisation experience in Po-land but that had to be cancelled because of instructions to compete in the APRC Rotorua Rally in New _ Zealand. The two drivers in the David Sutton Cars team (Rowe and Blomqvist) were the only driv-ers in the series to have finished every round they have entered so far. Sutton: "In over 35 years of this business, this is my first time at this event. Our worry is that our cars must be ready to catch the last available boat to Australia, which · leaves Italy on the Monday after the rally." Team changes include: Fabio Frisiero went to Top Run. Errani moved to Mega Perfor-mance in Nice this time (his fourth rally and fourth different team!). Geradzhiev went to Poland (new team Evorent), de Dominicis went back to Spain to CB Racing (run by the former rally driver Cesar Baroni). Top Run's regular driver Marcos Ligato (who has been re-cently back home in Argentina) like the Venetian driver Frisiero drove an Evo VII, though the Argentine had tested Top Run's Evo VIII development car. "The Vlll's per-formance is already better, if only by about 0 .2 seconds per kilometre, but I opted for the se-curity of a car that is proven." Patrick Richard recently ended a spell of bad luck when he won the Rallye Baie des Chaleurs back home in' Canada with his Subaru and rented a new car from Bel-gium for the rest of the season. Ligato and Richard were currently joint leaders in the Rally Series of North America, which is a candi-date FIA zone championship, af-ter the first two rounds. It was the first rally on asphalt in a Group N car for JWRC champion Daniel Sola, who made prior tests in Italy to gain some experience, and for his MRT teammate Ramon Ferreyros his first event in Ger-many: "I do not know what to ex-pect. Everyone you ask gives a dif-ferent reply! I am hoping it will be a bit like Belgium, where I rallied for many years in the past." Ro-manian champion Constantin Aur wa hoping for an immediate change in fortunes. "I hope this time I can at least finish, so many enthusiasts from my country will be coming to watch this event!" There was a new co-driver for Janusz Kulig, his fellow Pole Maciej Szczepartiak, formerly co-driver for Tomasz Kuchar who was short of budget and was watching the rally giving conducted tours to VIPs, It was a change for Szczepaniak, used to the excitement of WRCars. "Actually it is so quiet in Group N cars, you just don't realize how fast you are going, im-til you have to slow down, then you really realize. One famous race will be missing, the championship leader and winner of three rounds so far, Arai is the only PCWRC competitor to have chosen to miss this event, going back to Japan to start tests with Subaru's latest ver-sion asphalt specification Impreza. The weather was expected to be the most uncertain factor in the rally, with rain forecast for at least two of the three days of the rally. In addition to the frequently changing levels of grip came the usual asphalt problems for the top cars, cutting corners and throw-ing dirt and mud on to the road and hindering the later runners. Competitors were curious to see what changes had been made after Daniel Sola and Alex Romani were the PCWRC champions in their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VII, shown here well airborne. Dusty Times

BEST IN THE DESERT Baja JOO Times Two By Byrle Moore Photos: Trackside Photo The brothers Weyhrich, Marl< and Gary beat the Mexican terrain as well as all the competition in their Jimco, first in Class 1500P, first overall. "Neither rain nor snow nor dark of night." Not a post office quote this time, but the word of the day and evening, over the radios and at the finish line. Casey Folks really did have something for everybody. This, the second running of Best in the Desert's Baja 300 brought out 80 bikes and quads of which 64 finished and 66 cars and trucks of which 49 made it through all sorts of · natural and man made obstacles to the checkered flag. · Hey, there was even hail about the size of quarters, but Kurt Caseill and Joey Lanza on board the green KTM went two minutes and change faster than Johnny Campbell and Steve Hengeveld on their Honda, to win overall champior..ship for bikes and quads. The winning time was 6: 17 :41. The 1500 car driven by Mark and Gary Weyhric.h and co-driven by John Danczak and John Vance passed everyone, sometimes with case and one time after following him for 65 miles, but pass they did and ran a 6:50:33, 20 minutes ahead of a 1400 car, driven by Kyle Tailor, Gordon (Smokey) McKiel and Jason Taylor. Thus began the history of the second go round of the BITD Baja 300. Unlike last year the race started in downtown Ensenada, made its way to the seashore and then headed east and south through the fields and mountains and Hurricane Ignacio, well at least the edges of it. The fast 20 miles had its ups and downs from sea level to about 2000 feet through the towns and villages of this part of the Baja. Another great race, by the BITD contingency. Of course, the war stories from the races will be passed around for the next year. Arguments will be started and settled. Comparisons will be made. But, it all came down to a great weekend of racing enjoyed by all, fan and participant alike. We will cover the results by class with the top three, where there were three mentioned and of course, the important top ten overall finishing spots for bikes and quads and cars and trucks. Class 1000 (Class 10 to those of you unfamiliar with BITD classification and numbering system), was headed by Eli and Lobsam Yee out of San Ysidro and Tijuana. The JlMCO's timeof7:37:41 took not only the class win but garnered them fourth overall for the cars and trucks. Second in class went to Tony Mclaren, who trailered his PenhaU Fab car all the Kyle Taylor was -the Trick Truck class winner, His good looking Ford took him to a nice second overall. Third overall and first in Class 7200P. Larry Roese/er drove his Ford to an easy class win, lost fenders don't count. way down from Veneta, Oregon. McLaren's time was 10:17:45. Although he was a non-finisher Steve Strobel from Clarks, Nebraska was awarded third. Class 1100-Pro Only, which equates to Class 10 Light, had two finishers Matias Arjona, Ensenada; Bruce Conrad, Torrance, CA; Lee Perfect, Oak Hills, CA and Kevin Jensen from Victorville ran aIJ. 8:05:01 which was also good enough for tenth overall. Mark Brownell, Tucson, AZ, drove his Chenowth to a 20: 10:4 7 for second place. Class llOOS had only one finishers and the top spot went to Alfonso Castro, Rosarito BC; Gerardo Sanchez Cordova, Ensenada BC and Alonso Reyes, West Covina, CA. Their time was 10:54:50. Class 1200-Pro Only, is the same as Pro Truck. John Becker, NewhaU, CA and Dan Bohning, Saugus, CA had a real nice 7:33: 13 run which was also good enough for fifth overall. Another California team ran 7:47: 12 for second in class and sixth overall. That team was made up ofTom Koch, Ridgecrest, CA; Robert A. Neth, Julian, CA; Joel Tarquin, Oceanside, CA and Robert S. Neth from Julian, CA. The first two places were won by Ford trucks. A Toyota teamed by Rick L Johnson, Oak Hills, CA; Ken Nance, Victorville, CA; Lee Perfect, Oak Hills, CA (where have we heard that name before?), and Kevin Jensen, also from Victorville. Their time of7:59:54 was also quick enough for seventh overall. The Yee boys, Eli and Lobsam drove their Jimco to the class 1 O win seen here flying low on the way to victory. The Protruck victory went to John Becker, seen here flying his Ford to a nice win and a great fifth overall as well. Another name for the 1400 class is Trick Truck-Pro Only. Go to the rule book. Anyway, Kyle Taylor, San Jacinto, CA; Gordon (Smokey) Mickie!, Palm Springs, CA and Jason Taylor piloted their "Big Ford", to a 7: 10:46 for the class win and second overall. Enrique and Abraham Legaspy drove their Ford to an 8:24:45, second in class and eighth overall. The Legaspys are out of Ensenada BC. An Arizona team ran Continued on page 24 The Ford of Tom Koch and Bobby Neth made a good run of it but they Third in the Protruck Division was the great looking Toyota of Rick Leaning and running hard, the Ford of Enrique Legaspy ran to a nice ended up second in the Protruck class in Mexico.

,,,-By Wes. Wisdom Everyone mark your calen-dar for Wednesday, October 15th. On that night F.A.l.R. is very proud to host Sal Fish and SCORE International for the drawing of starting positions for the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. This will be a b ig night with race cars and trucks on display, a "B 1 K Tabletop Ven-dors Fair" and lots an d lots of camaraderie. The meeting starts at 8:00 p.m., but get there early for all the other attractions. It will be at the Radisson Hotel in Ful-lerton. The address is 222 W. Houston. It's one block west of Harbor Blvd., on the north side of the 91 Freeway. Any-body who wants to come is in-vited. There was only one race in August, the annual MOR night race at Lucerne Valley. F.A.l.R. was there, of course, with 10 members racing. Dan Folts had his usual rally, with at least a one and a half lap lead. Dan blows away all of the Class 9 competitors. He and Dad Dave are in the process of building a 1/ 2-1600 so everybody in that class bet-ter watch out. Don't have any first-hand information as to what hap-pened to any of the other members. According to the re-sults page on the MOR website there were a couple of "Po-dium" finishes; Chris Bowman· was third in Class 5 and Ron Rash was third in Class 9. Chris lost the points lead in Class 5 but is only 11 points behind the leader with two races to go. In the other year and points races, A.J. Gaston is second in Class 1, Guy Savedra is third in Class 550, Ryan Lesher is second in Class 10, Dan Vance is tied for first in the huge Class 1450 and James Golden has a very big lead in Class 1600. Except for Golden, who seems to have a lock on the 1600 class, all of th e points battles are so close that, with two races to go, anything can happen! F.A.l.R. is proud to be par-ticipat~ng in the OHV Toy Drive for Kids with Cancer and other life threatening dis-eases. We will be collecting new, unwrapped toys at all of our meetings and at every race un-til the end of November. Items can be for any age group from newborn to teens. Check out the website for a listing of the kinds of things that can be donated. All gifts will be sent to the Miller Children's Hospital in Long Beach and the University Children's Hospital in Irvine. Let's all get together and make Dusty Times this a super successful drive. On another positive note, our illustrious El Presidente, Tom Sobray, has gotten him-self hitched! None of us ·are quite sure how he found some-body to put up with him. He must have some hidden charms that we aren't aware of. He's been putting in so much time on F.A.l.R, business we don't know where he got the time to get married. Congratulations to Tom and Beth and we hope to keep seeing both of them at all the races! llt-Dl.JJIE PcRf6~/1AIICF, -we.

It's up to us to remember all of those who have protected our freedoms, some with the ultimate sacrifice. This great country was built on the prin-ciple that all of its citizens are created equal and have in inalien right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and will remain so as long as we su pport those Americans who are putting their lives on the line to protect us. God Bless America. B-y Stephen Stenberg, Pit Coordinator Welcome members and race fans alike. It has been a long su mmer and I'm back. Since last reporting, Mag 7 has been busy with three races. First it was t h e Baja 500 in June. Then it was the Vegas to Reno race which we shared with Baja pits under the BMP banner. Then it was back to business at the Baja 300 last m onth pitting a lone. Altogether a busy summer for the team. ow we pre pa re for the grande race of the season, the Baja 1000 in November. Mag 7 will b e pitting this race alone, with no outside h elp fro m any other teams. We are going thru our equipment ranging from 11 gallon dump cans to welder s, to fi rst aid boxes to restock them to 100% capacity. At t h e same time, we are recruiting new member s each m onth. A team such as ours can' t run just on its laurels from past years. Granted, this past year in off road racing (cir. 1969), but new blood mixed in with the old on top. We meet at the Casa Mechado Restaurante on the southern edge of Montgomery Field in San Diego each month on a . Monday night, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Drinks are on the team and perspective members' meals are on us the first meeting they attend. If yo u or someone you know wants to join up with a family team that enjoys serving racers and likes belonging to a team that has been around into its fourth decade, then Mag 7 is the one for you. Of course, as with any team, withou t our sponsor s w e would have a hard t ime existing. In n o certain order they are SKS Valvoline, Off Road Warehouse, Red-D-Arc Welding, GPR Products, IMS Products, Cycle Parts West (El Cajon, CA store) and DeWalt Tools. Our fuel is supplied through C.L. Bryant and Bill Rodriguez. We run 76 race fuel only with Valvoline oil products and Golden Spectro for our bikes and quad s. For race support, yo u can contact us either thru our web site at or our officers directly For our President, Terry Walsh, you can contact him at Preside n t@M ag7 race .com. For our Race Director, Kevin Wals h , you can call him at (619) 582-3728 or e-mail him at Raced irector@Mag7 race. com. At this time we haven't decided on the number of pits or the cost of the service. But our pit applications should be going out to our 2003 current members (76 total as of 9/ 1/ 03) by the end of September/ beginning of October. That is it for now. Let's get o u t to the d esert and enjoy ourselves. See you next month. Adios from the Mag 7 Race Team. PLEASE!
