SCORE'S first attempt at a short course race in many years attracted over 13,000 spectators for its two night stand at the dirt track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Pages Braving the muggy heat, the spec-tators were savvy and biased, and expressed pleasure and displeasure with equal abandon. Clearly favor-ing the Las Vegas racers, they also knew a good piece of driving when they saw it, and approved noisily! It was all great fun. At least it was great fun for the spectators. Most of the racers en-October 2005 Marty Coyne flies high, he flew his Ford Trophy Truck to a Heat win and he took the Main Event as well. joyed the change of venue, but a few of them weren't thrilled with SCORE's first attempt here, though on the whole the event received good marks. In general, the Trophy Truck and Class 1 drivers thought the course was a bit too narrow in the turns. It was impossible for more than one car to get through at a time, and a lot of banging ensued. The event was a non-points race, open only to Trophy Trucks, Class 1, Class 10, SCORE Lite, 1/2-1600, 7, 7S, and 7SX, and the vehicle must have raced in at least two SCORE long course events within the previ-ous two years. Obviously, they didn't want any CORR trucks to show up and walk away with the purse. SCORE called the event a "limited field invitational", and there was no entry fee, although each entrant had to buy insurance. There was a total purse of $55,000 to be paid only to the Saturday night winners and run-ners up. They put some rules together which were aimed at preventing the teams from modifying their vehicles too severely. Minimum tire sizes were called out, and minimum wheelbase and weights also. The intent was to be certain that these would be desert cars. The dirt track at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which was the site of the racing, was well suited to this purpose. A track was built both in-side and outside the perimeters of the dirt track, which totaled about a mile and a half, and included about eight turns, one of them a too narrow hairpin, one flying jump, some moguls, two long straights, a small length of pavement and a lot of K-rail. One of the turns, a tight right, also climbed up and over the wall separating the track from the outskirts. It made for some traffic jams, some sudden stops and hitting, and at least one roll-over, but occa-sionally an inspired piece of driving in that turn would amaze and amuse the spectators. Over on the so~th-east corner of the track there was a small grandstand set up for the use of pit crews and drivers not cur-rently racing - it was full for every event. Across the way, facing into the east, the main grandstands held ap-proximately 8,000 people. On Fri-day night the report was that there were 5,521 people in attendance, and on Saturday the figure jumped to 7,540. Those figures were for paying customers. From the main grandstands it was possible to see almost the entire course. The tight hairpin was a bit far to the left, and the audience had to stand and crane their necks to figure out who was hitting who, and who'd rolled over. And the paved downhill left sweeper into the park-ing area was out of sight to all but those who sat on the south end of the stands, or those across the way. Still, there was plenty to see during the daylight racing. There were lights on Friday night, to illuminate the long straight and the area of that tight hairpin, but they were not correctly placed, nor did they all seem to be working. Some improvements were made for Saturday night, because of course, most cars had no lights on them, and the drivers didn't like not being able to see. Saturday's lighting was better, but could have used some improvement still. The facility as a whole worked splendidly. There were acres of paved parking lot around the dirt track so a huge area was set aside for the pits, allowing the teams all the space they needed for motorhomes, trailers, equipment, awnings and so on. Not far from the pits there was a car wash area, with a couple of hoses, so the cars could be cleaned off be-fore the crew went to work on them. Another big area was set aside for race team motorhome parking, and still another was reserved for the contingency area. There were lights everywhere. About a quarter mile away, without having to leave the Speedway compound, there were gas stations, a convenience store and at least one restaurant, so it was pos-sible to refuel, take an air-condi-tioned break, and come back re-freshed, without having had to deal with Las Vegas traffic. There were concessions at the back side of the grandstands, selling everything from "western sausage" to Daiquiri spiked smoothies. Unfortunately, they didn't open until 5:30 p.m., so were no help to the folks in contingency on Friday. The schedule started with media events on Thursday, including a couple of laps on the course for all the cars. Then the big event was the Fremont Street autograph party, complete with posters depicting many of the racers, to be autographed and handed out. Thousands of enthusiastic fans at-tended, both for the "meet the driver" session, and the Pit Crew Challenge. There were also Trophy Trucks on display during the festivi-ties. The Pit Crew Challenge was won by the Herbst Trophy Truck team, which netted them a $5,000 purse, second place (and $3,000) went to Marty Coyne's team, and B.J. Baldwin's group took third place, and a purse of$2,000. Spec-tators were lined up "ten deep" to watch the fun. Friday's schedule included con-tingency and tech, practice, track maintenance, more practice, more track prep, and finally, at 5:30, the "Meet the Drivers" autograph ses-sion out on the track. The specta-tors flocked out into the infield to meet and greet the racers and get a Dusty Times

Then Marty Coyne shot his Ford past Collins, who, with bad night vision, was having trouble see-ing out in the darker regions of the course. Coyne took off after Herbst. As they finished their fifth lap, with MacCachren solidly in front, Coyne and Herbst came into the infield side-by-side, bringing the spectators to their feet. Coyne slid past Herbst and then stayed in front of him. Mac-Cachren took the win, Coyne was second, showing off skills he'd learned years ago when he raced short course, and Herbst was third. The audience howled with delight. The next heat was a five car Class 1 grouping, and Martin Christensen put his BMW powered Jimco into the lead and stayed there. Dennis Boyle ran second in his Lothringer Chevy and Kory Scheeler had his Porter Chevy in third. They ran hard and clean and finished in the same order. · It was pushing 9 o • .:lock now, and time for the second 1600 heat. These four lap heats were over so quickly that the audience barely had time to figure out who was who (the num-bers were basically not legible from up in the stands, and then they got muddy), but the announcer had some help from down below, and also a set of binoculars, so he kept them informed. Cameron Steele went into the lead in his Prep-by-Jake, with Rick Boyer chasing hard in his Mirage. Brian Burgess, his SPF's motor not running well, pulled off track, but everyone else was running healthy. Steele took the win with Boyer still second and Rob MacCachren third in a Fraley. The small trucks were next, ready for their second go-'round. Roeseler got shoved into the wall by Dan Chamlee's Ford, and that set his hood to flapping, but didn't keep him from moving into the lead on the second lap. The hood then fell off. Karakas had a steering quirk, and it locked up at one point, aim-ing him around to the side of the jump instead of over it. He lost two positions while he frantically got thing under control again. That let Perry McNeil move his Ford into sec-ond place. Roeseler stayed out in front, and Karakas chased down McNeil and got back around to finish second. Dan Chamlee also moved up to take third. At about 9: 15 the SCORE Lites and Class 10 cars rolled onto the track, for their second heat. The wind was still blowing and dust was flying into the spectators' faces, but aside from wishing for goggles, none were too inconvenienced. MacCach-ren went to the front and stayed there, taking another win. Dusty Times LIST YOUR PHONE NUMBER, YEAR, MODEL AND ENGINE SIZE!

Then it was Page 12 October 2005 MacCachren, Coyne, Jones and Herbst, and Jason Baldwin brought up the rear, his truck obviously un-well. MacCachren had no problems, and although he tried hard, Coyne couldn't get close enough to attempt a pass. Mac took the win, Coyne was second and Jones was third. Roger Gray's weekend was over, because not only had he lost his power steer-ing, but he'd also lost oil pressure and done terminal damage to his motor. On Saturday night the preludes to the racing were the same, includ-ing the national anthem and fire-works, and then a Trophy Truck heat started the racing with a roar. The course had been watered enough that the infield turn was slimy and caution was needed to keep the big trucks pointed forward for a couple oflaps. Pete Sohren amazed the au-dience by taking the wall turn wide and flying over the wall where there was no dirt ramp to land on. It seemed not to affect his truck, and he was in third place, behind Mac-Cachren and Jones. Cameron Steele was fourth, Collins was fifth. By the fourth lap MacCachren had a huge lead, being all the way through the pavement and on the long straight before the others were all out of the infield. He stayed in front, but .Sohren moved up from third to second after working on Jones for several laps. Then on the fourth lap MacCachren nearly lost it in the last hairpin, due to a dam-aged right front corner. Sohren was nearly close enough to catch him, and smelling victory, pushed hard. Too hard. He rolled over at the wall turn, and had to be lifted out with a big crane. In the meantime Mac-Cachren went on to finish with a right front wheel that wasn't roll-ing, in first place. Jones was second, Steel third and Jason Baldwin was fourth. Second to go was a group of just four Class 1 cars, including Troy Herbst, Rich Ronco, John Marking and Pat Dean. Dean started in front and stayed there, although Troy drove hard to try to catch him. Rich Ronco ran third, and Marking was fourth all the way, finishing on a right front flat. Saturday's third heat was the 1600s, with 16 cars on the course. Cody Freeman took off in front, with Rick Boyer second, and Arden Dennington in third place. Some-one rolled over at the start of the sweeper, and someone else was stopped on the southbound straight. Cody stayed in front to take the win, followed in by Dennington, then Rick Boyer and Greg Boyer. The action went back to the little Dusty Times T

McNeil went off the line first, chased by Karakas and Roeseler. As they hit the jump Karakas sailed by McNeil in mid-air, putting himself into the lead. The next time they came around Karakas was still in front, but Roeseler was second and McNeil third. Roeseler went by into the lead out on the back straight, and then went on to win. Karakas was the bridesmaid again, and McNeil was third. Billy Bunch broke some vital part of his suspension and came to a premature stop. The Class 10 and SCORE Lite cars were next to start. These started in two bunches separated by a gap of just a few seconds. Not that they stayed separated. Someone got side-ways in the hairpin turn and there was a big jam up, clumping every-one into one big pack, with Mac-Cachren at the front. Darren Hardesty had his VW Alumicraft in second place, and Tom Ridings ran third in his Honda J imco. They ran in that order to the end, while oth-ers strung out behind. Someone in the pack was high-centered on the berm in the infield for a while, but otherwise it was a clean race. In the SCORE Lite pack Vic Bruckmann took the win, with his · wife, Michelle, riding along. Robert Naughton ran second in his Foddrill, and Rob MacCachren had his Chenowth in third place. It was intermission time again, and then they moved on to another Trophy Truck heat. Tim Herbst started out in front, and built a pretty good lead on Marty Coyne, with B.J. Baldwin running third. The back straight was dusty by now, and it looked pretty dim out on that back straight. They stayed in order through the second lap, but on Lap 3 Herbst missed a turn and Coyne, Baldwin and Huffman all went past him. Coyne then stayed in front to take the win, followed in by B.J. Baldwin. The Class l cars were next, this their second heat, with just four cars. Dave Mason shot to the front, tak-ing the lead in Martin Christensen's BMW Jimco. He had Dennis Boyle behind him, then Michael Tieman in a Raceco Chevy and Lee Finke in a Coyte Ford. Mason took the win, with Boyle in second place. Next on the agenda was the Main Event for the 1600 cars. This would be the only race that mattered, ulti-mately, because this time they were racing for the purse. Brian Jeffrey came off the start in front, with Cody Freeman second, Dennington third, Aaron Hawley, in a Bunderson, in fourth and Brian Burgess fifth. Jef-frey spun his car around, ended up Rob MacCachren made it look easy, he drove his Jimco-Honda to both Class 10 Heat wins and took the Main Event as well.

They all went by. · Now Dennington led with Cody Freeman second, Burgess third, Hawley fourth, and Bryan Freeman in fifth place. He'd rolled in the first heat and done a lot of damage, and had just barely got the car repaired in time to start this heat. Rick Boyer developed a left front flat. Cody Freeman had briefly had the lead, but lost it when he co!-,lldn't get sec-ond gear. Dennington hung on to the lead and took the win, followed in by Cody Freeman, and his big brother Bryan. Hawley was fourth and Fernie Padilla, in a Bunderson was fifth. Second through fifth were all Las Vegas racers. Nineteen year old Cody Freeman liked the format, but said, "It could be a little longer!" The Main Event for the mixed trucks was next, and it turned into a comedy of errors. The officials de-lap was over for some obstruction on the course. (Maybe Billy Bunch, who had a broken left front corner, or maybe because McNeil had rolled in an inconvenient spot.) Apparently there was only one red flag on the track, in the possession of the finish line flagman at the big jump. All the others were yellow. The racers saw the yellows and slowed, and some saw the red flag in the finish line flagman's ~nds, and stopped im-mediately after the jump, but an-other one or two either missed the color of the flag, or misunderstood its meaning. They didn't stop. And, since they went on past the lead cars that caused them to put their ve-hicles in gear and give chase. The flag men in front of them vainly waved their yellow flags, but of course, that didn't mean "stop" to the racers, so they kept moving. It took a while to get everyone whoaed down, and what finally did it was for Sal Fish to walk out on the course and wave his arms and holler "stop!" The meaning of the flags had been ex-plained at the drivers' meeting, but it's hard to get one car to stop if another appears to be still racing. It was mass confusion for a while.

Perry McNeil had a fifth and a third in the Heats and he finished fourth Jim Greenway placed well in the two Score Lite Heats and was first in the Class 7 combined Main Event. off the podium in the Main Event at Vegas. The race was restarted, com-pletely. By then it would have been impossible to know who'd done how many laps. Jeff Lloyd started out in front this time, with Roeseler and Karakas coming behind him. McNeil's car, having obviously been rolled over, ran last. Roeseler led by the second lap, with Karakas in sec-ond and Chamlee third. They went on in that order to the finish, McNeil, who dropped way back running on fewer cylinders than he'd have liked. The first words out ot Roeseler's mouth when he stopped for the fin-ish line interviews were "Why don't those guys know the rules? They were hitting me!" But he was grinning, and went on to say, "It was a little cha-otic!" He liked the event, and thinks it's a "positive thing for everybody."

TREELINE RALLY A Day In The Mountains By Scott Bottomley Photos: Moptorsports Memories Roger Hull and Sean Gallagher create a dusty landscape, they were 1st WSRC Gp 5, 1st CRS Open 2WD in their Plymouth Laser RS.

While guarding her top position after the rock al--tercation she managed fourth on each of the last two stages while the others (Blake Yoon and Doug Robinson) were gaining by either winning the stage outright or finish-ing higher than her. At the rally's end scoring issues occurred when it was discovered, that during the rally changes in the timing method from seconds to hundredths and back to seconds happened, that, some felt, could have changed the final out-come. Some teams inquired but no formal protests I understand were filed; so results stood as posted. Par-taking in this historical event was This year's Treeline Rally was a little different from previous, for in-stance, an historical first, unusual high mountain temperatures and a closed stage that would have re-quired anger management classes at other events. But all prevailed when a cool tempered woman driver tamed the narrow, twisty mountain roads, and a field of drivers only glad to have their day shorten by one stage (Monrovia East -due to a roll that blocked the course) and a dusty heat that triggered the driver's competi-tive fire. By winning this year's rally by nearly a minute overall, Jamie Tho-mas became the first woman to win a California Rally Series (CRS) event.

Meanwhile Doug and Bret Robinson (VW GolO lead the Per-formance Stock class field by a nar-row lead of eight hundredths, after SS3 (Pine Mountain East), over the team of Mike and Linda Masano. It was a change to fresh rubber during service before the start of SS4 that enabled the Robinsons to take their slim lead and roll it up to 30 sec-onds after four stages. Doug ex-plains, "With new tires we were re-ally hooked up making time, and with the overall leaders within reach, our sights were set. But a two minute time penalty on the start ofSS5 for early arrival really killed us." The Masanos held on in their Toyota Corolla to claim second finishing second on each stage, the Robinsons won each stage and would finish with nearly a two minute margin.

6 SNORE KC H1L11ES MIDNIGHT SPECIAL } · LeDuc's Take overall By John Calvin Photos: Trackside Photo Curt LeDuc and his son, Todd took the Heavy Metal Challenge with ease, they also took the overall win in their Skyjacker Ford. Technical Inspection and Contin-gencywere held in beautiful downtown Boulder City and it was a blast, lots of entrants and lots of spectator traffic en-joying the Friday night and all the ac-tion that precedes an off road race. The temperature was way up there, even at ten o'clock at night but enthusiasm was running high and all the drivers were looking forward to an in the dark con-test. There were 79 cars and trucks wait-ing for the 7 pm start time on Saturday night. The temperature was still hover-ing around the 100 mark and there wasn't a breath of air, flyingctitters were everywhere there was a light and you had to keep your mouth shut so some strange thing didn't fly into it. The race started at 7pm and the lone Class 1 entrant was first to leave the start line. Class 1 had six laps to go to make it a race and Terry Yoakum had a fast lap of 55 minutes, 33 seconds on his first lap, slid up to a longest lap of 1:24:58 and took the Class 1 win with a total time of 6:51:38. There were 10 Class 10 cars waiting for the green flag but it was not to be a good night for many of them, only four of them would see the checkered flag this night. As they came around on their first of six laps it was T.J. Aores in the lead, Ken Aippen and Mark Hutchins came around next, absolutely tied on time for second place, Bob McBeath was next across in fourth spot and Mike Wichmann was running fifth, just two minutes and change behind the leader. In sixth place it was Brian Freema~ sev-enth spotwent to Chris Wright, he came along 24 seconds later, Carlos Carter was in eighth place and J.C. Dean was a long ninth place after being plagued with troubles. Ryan Temple didn't complete his first lap. There were lots of changes on the second lap, T.J. Aores still held the lead, Mike Wichmann had moved up into the second spot, he was three minutes behind the leader, Chris Wrightwas now running in third place, Brian Freemal was up a spot into fourth place and Carlos Carter was in fifth place. Ken Flippen was a long time coming around, his four and a half hour lap a definite death knell. Missing; and presumed on their respective trailers were Mark Hutchins, BobMcBeathandJ.C. Dean. The third lap was full of surprises as everyone had some sort of position change. Mike Wichmann had moved up from second spot into the lead, Carlos Carter had ripped off a great lap and was in the second spot, only a few seconds behind the leader, Brian Freemal was up a spot into third place, Chris Wright dropped a spot and was now fourth and T.J. Aores had big prob-lems and was now running 50 minutes behind the class leader. Ken Rippin de-cided to call it a night and was out of the contest. The fourth lap ended, Mike Wichmann still led the way, Brian Matt Gumz was in 14th place early on in the Class 1600 battle, but when the checkers flew he was there to take the win. Corey To"es led the first lap in the Class 9 contest, slipped to second on lap 2 but he recovered and took the win. Freemal had moved up into second place, he was 11 minutes behind the leader, Carlos Carter dropped a spot to third place, Chris Wright still was in fourth place and T. J. Aores was still the fifth placed car. lap 5, and Mike Wichmann was still showing the way, Carlos Carter had re-gained his second place standing, Brian Freemal had dropped a spot and was now running in third place, Chris Wright wad still in fourth place and T. J. Aores was in fifth place. The final lap, about 1:30 in the am and Mike Wichmann was the first of the Class 10 machines to take the check-ered flag, Carlos Carter was second in, he was 22 minutes behind the leader, in third it was Brian Freemal, 17 minutes out of the second spot and Chris Wright was fourth, about 50 minutes behind the leader. T.J. Aores succumbed to the mechanical gods and didn't complete his final lap. Class 1200 only had one entrant, Corey Cook. Corey usually runs with the Class 10 guys but this race he de-cided to run in his real class. He only had to run four laps to make it a race and he just zipped around the course and turned in a time of 5:20:22 for his four laps for an average of an hour, 20 minutes per lap. OINiously, he took the class win. The Heavy Metal group was next off the line and they had to get six laps un-der their belts to make the finish.

Sportsman Buggy was next to race, there were four of them and only two would finish the race. They had four required laps to run and when the first lap ended it was Jeff Shiroky in the lead, Dan Maurer was second across the line, Paul Sheldon was third and Bryan Tapertwas a very loooong fourth place.

1.A.Jc:!C: 55TH NESTE RALLY FINLAND 2005 Granholm/Peugeot Win In Finland By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Marcus Granholm took the win in Finland, his home turf, he's seen here in flight on his way to the win for the fifth time. "We came very close to retiring after I hurt my back. There was no magician whorouldhave made mewalkagain that evening. I owe our win to the doctor who gave me the strength to canyon." ltwas codriver Tuno Rautiainen, not his driver Marcus Gronhohn, who gave the low-down on Peugeot's first win of the 2005 WRC season and only their second win for the 307 WRC. Sebastien Loeb, in the unaccustomed position of not win-ning, was gracious. "I was already being beaten even before Marcus was forced to slow down because of the pain Tunowas suffering." Loeb's codriver Daniel Elena also suffered back trouble at the same jump as Rautiainen, happily not so arutely. While Loeb became more and more serure in the Drivers' champion-ship, the neck-and-neck battle for the Makes' series is as dose as ever. After ten rounds Peugeot are just one point in front of Citroen. Of the remaining six events in the championship, three of them are on asphalt, the first of these (Germany) being the next on the calen-dar. Citroen are unbeaten in Germany ... The tenth round of the 2005 WRC reverted to a Thursday evening start this year, followed by the superspecial stage held that evening at the Killeri trotting track course to the west ofJyvaskyla City. There were signs of change, however, be-cause this was the final year under the existing contract to run the event in Jyvaskyla, and there were changes at the head of the event The narure of the event was similar to before, with attention not to overuse stages which degrade badly. The fumous Ouninpohja stage had been split into two, for serurityreasons. ltwas an event in which spectator involvement was paramount Bearing in mind the huge traffic jams experienced in the past, there had been a new trend to follow the event on two not four wheels (despite the unpredictable weather) and this year there was a novelty, a new vehicle pass system -for bikers! The weather was very much in pre-rally minds. Thiswasoneofthe AA'.sspecial "on~ tread" events which, although the teams had until the Wednesdaybefure the ~nt to decide which pattern theywanted, still resulted in a gamble, as the weather f~ cast was changing day by day! Once again this was the season's fastest champion-ship rally. The surfaces consist of hard and compacted gravel which could be as smooth as a motorway. While Sebastien Loeb continued to extend his lead in the World Drivers' series, Citroen them.5elves were still leading the Makes' series, but closely followed by Peugeot The gap be-fore the event was just six points. Ford entered five cars -the newcomer being Mikko Hirvonen, who had {briefly) led the Rally Acropolis, and who was nomi-nated for this event as the official num-ber two driver. The day before the start, presentation of a new project took lace, a one make championship Group N H-esta, to be driven as a course car by racing driver Mika Salo. This was Mitsubishi's He had six straight wins, but this time Sebastien Loeb had to settle for second place in his Citroen Xsara. Page 24 16th anniversary ofits first world cham-pionship rallywin by the current Ralliart/ MMSP team, and the company's first such win outside Africa. This time their engines had new electtonicand material changes, aimed at improving torque and power. Skoda had used Tempere Rally as a p~ent test for this rally. Although Jani Paasonen only managed to finish third on the Tempere, former Mitsubi-shi team driver Kristian Sohlberg scored the first outright rally win of his long rally career. On this event Peugeot had a third . 307 WRC, as in Sweden, this time for the team's rest driver Sebastian Lindhohn. His was a private entry but serviced by the official team. Skoda also had a three car entry,just like in Greece. New throtrl~ by-wire, floor mounted pedal bcoces, as tested in Argentina, were used, but the team were increasingly nerwus as a mid-September future team policy decision was expected. Subaru used ex:.C)'lnlScars: this event was the 12th anniversary of the debut of the lmpreza World championship rally car during which time it has won 4 5 WCRevents. Although he was entered in a Subaru Impreza WRC hopes that reigning PCWRC Champion Niall Mohea would return to theworldcham-pionship series were put on hold This would have been his fustworld champi-onship appearance this year, although he had a short and unlucky outing at the recentAzores Rally. Other non-starters: Jusso Pykalisto (03 Focus said not to be fast enough but in reality it was decided to keep the available budget for use on national championship events), Mark Higgins (Acropolis damage could not be repaired in time) and the two Olsbergs cars were withdrawn after a severe testing crash badly damaged the car for Johansson and which caused the team ownertowithdrawCarlsson'sentryand rethink the whole team project.A knock.-on-effect of this news was the large num-ber of Swedish fans that contacted their travel agent seeking to cancel their trips and seeking refunds! The weekend be-fore the rally the Tampere test rally was run but the dramas had started even ear-lier. Guest test driver Hannu Mikkola wrecked a Skoda. Seven times winner Mikkola's )'l'.)unger son Vesa who was competingwitha Group N Honda T ~ R, said that the crash was, for his father, October 200s Daniel Sordo drove his Citroen C2 to the JWRC win in Finland, he's seen here soaring towards his ve,y nice win. the second most severe in all his career, surpassed only by a crash he had in Fin-land over 30 years earlier. This was the first rally in the second half of the eight-round PCWRC series. Twelve entries out of 13 registered con-tenders were entered by Alan Scordoni did not start He had hoped to run a Renault prepared in Cz.ech Republic, but the car was crashed on a rally the week-end before. To honour his JWRC obli-gations Scordoni borrowed a Punto from Luca Cecchettini, who had nomi-nated this as his missing event, for Scrutineering but did not attempt the event itself. This event saw the debut of the Swift Super 1600 for Per-Gunnar Andersson and Guy Wilks. Apirtfrom a different model base, the mechanical improvements are now independent rear suspension and include a different power steering system. Various independent us-ers were still running lgnis cars. Citroen driver Kris Meekewas codriven by Glenn Patterson, a fellow Ulsterman but no relation to his previous codriver Chris Patterson. Interesting entries in the non-championship category saw the arrival of the next generation. T wentyone year old Anton Alen, )'l'.)unger son of six times "l(XX) Lakes" winner Markku, oompeted in a Mitsubishi Group N, Registered PCWRC drivers taking time out to enter this event in private Group N cars in-cluded Natalie Barratt, Angelo Medeghini and Aki Teiskonen. Italian Gentleman driver Fabrizio de Sanctis ar-md in Jyvaskyla to make his 20thsucx:es-si:ve appearance as a" l(XX) Lakes" driver. A total of 84 entries were accepted. En-gines used here also had to be used in Germany so nobody started with this worry behind them, Prognostics dictated that Marcus Gronhohn was favourite, helped because Loeb had to start num-ber one on the road-a bad indicator for the World Champion ifitwasdry, but if it rained the conditions could work in the Frenchman's favour. Jyvaskyla suddenly dried out on the Wednesday before the event and sun-shine made the lakeside city loolcwdrom-ing after days of rain. The Ma)'l'.)r invited guests to a Welcome Party and made polite noises saying he hoped to see every, one again in 2006, but in fact after 55 years there was a major chance the rally might shift host dries before then. The increasing speed of cars and the speed in which they could cover the roads in the region was an ever present topic. One well experienced codriver said that the rally was in some way to blame. Strong suspension and mousse inserts meant that corner cutting was an increasing plague, not the least because it encouraged the local road maintenance authorities to widen the roads, which exacerbated the problem and made them faster. The organisers had already taken care not to doubl~ stages which degraded badly. AseconddrydayinSUCXl!S.5iongreeted the crews as theywentto Shakedown on the Thursday morning.

"However much this is a legendary rally, we must not for-get this is only one of 16 events in the championship.At.this {X)intin the cham-pionship, we will be quite happy if Loeb finishes second every time and does not win another event" There was dampness in the air as the crowds moved across to the Superspedal stage at Killeri and the promised rain for the rally became real. The Thursday evening Superspedal was a miserable affair, cold, dark and drizzly, and was won by Petter Solberg. On Friday Finland tried to show its nicer side. The rains had bedded down the surface and Loeb's fear oflosing time on the first six (uncleaned) roads came to nothing. Gronholm damaged a wheel on the opening stage of the day (Day 2) and the vibration cost a few seconds, so Loeb was momentarily ahead but Gronholm was in front after Stage 3. Petter Solberg was third, in front of Markko Martin in fourth place who was unusually high up in the placings for this point in an event Martin: "Actually we are happier now with the car.

Manfred Stohl' s co-driver Ilka Minor, also here for the first time, was stunned at the speeds and the concentration with which co<lrivers had to followtheirnores. Many drivers found it hard to settle into a decent rhythm. Sebastien Lindholm, in the third Peugeot, had a terrible start, a brake pipe broke and he then also lost time on a road section trying to rebleed the brake fluid As the daygotwarmer and drier the sur-faces stayed damp and this continued to play into Loeb's hands.

Sven Smeets (Duval) was one of many who confessed they were very stiff. It would have been interesting to know how many co<lrivers avoided neck injury through wearing the compulsory HANS device! For a while it was undecided whether the rally leader, even though he had retained his lead, could carry on. Rautiainen was examined No sign of imminent damage was found, but it was in agony that he and Marcus set off for the final three stages of the day. Janne T uohinoskidded 100 metres along a ditch after a heavy landing, the impact of which winded his codriver. Paasonen's run came to an end when he left the road after a jump and the front suspension collaµ;ed. Mikko Hirvonen was slowed with a bad vibra-tion after damaging a wheel on a land-ing. Annin Schwarz stalled three times because the handbrake mechanism in-terfered with the launch control system. Xavier Pons had an impact with the rear left suspension after a jump and this broke a shock absorber. The two last stages of the final loop were repeats, before the rally returned to the Killeri Superspecial Gronholm managed to inch further ahead and he ended the day 5.8 seconds in front of Loeb. On Stage 8 Petter Solberg had a fright-ening moment when the rear boot lid, together with the rear spoiler, wrenched itself away from the car and all the downforce was lost. In the last two stages both Martin and then Gardemeister managed togetaheadofhim,soSolberg finished the day fifth overall 52 seconds behind the leader. Kresta, in an old '03 Focus, had a bad time losing 10 minutes on Stage 7 when the engine stopped, a problem onlyrectified when he changed all the engine coil Clf-6. On the same stage Antony Warmbold had a throttle-by-wire failure on his Ford team Focus and had physically to connect the system up manually. "This was a great pity, as we were just getting the better in our great battle with Kristian Sohlberg".

Mikko Markkula, Janne Tuohino's co-driver still had a very sore neck. In the WRC category Atkinson and Galli were back again, as were Baldacci and Katajamaki in the JWRC. Among the top Group N crews Salo stayed at home but Jukka Ketomaki (who had retired on the Fridaywith transmission problem)was back again. The sun came ou4 spectators (maybe aware that there might not be such a major top level turn out in the future) were present in unprecedented numbers and still the cars kept going off the road. Kristian Sahlberg, in his cherished lmpreza (the car Petter Solberg used to win in Japan in 2004), rolled one corner from the end of the first stage and was out of the event. On the same stage Stohl went missing. He slid off into a tree and dam-aged the front part of the chassis too badly to carry on. Gianluigi Galli was back on form, for a while. He made second best time on the second stage of the day, then on the third stage he cut a corner too fine, lost control and ended up in the trees on the other side of the road. Second day, second crash. Galli, "This time I lost control over a jump and as I approached the next corner the car went into the tree. I have never gone off like that before."

Lafortune, who said he drove "ham-mer down the whole race", and "got a little bit lost" when the co-driver misin-terpreted the OPS, took the win by two minutes and 39 seconds. Alldredge, who shared the driving and riding with Oile Wood by the simple expedient of switch-ing seats, reported that "this was the easi-est course". They said it was fast, and that they liked the night driving because then they didn't become distracted by stuff off to the side.

LA CARRERA PANAMERICANA DH Raaders Take Ta Mexican Highways Text & Photos:]. Preston Bradshaw The Kennedy/Maurer '54 Uncoln won four stages and finished a ve,y respectable third place in the Original PanAm Class. We received a nice note and a few pictures from Jon Kennedy the other day, giving us a thumbnail sketch of their trials and tribula-tions on the 2004 La Carrera Panamericana. Well, much to our chagrin, the article they sent us was pigeonholed somewhere and just now surfaced, a mere 10 months in hiding. Therefore, better late than never, we give you the Kennedy/ Maurer short version. The famous Page 40 Mexican Road Race of the 50's that generated world wide attention and ultimately safety concerns that caused its demise in 1955 was res-urrected in a Pro-Rally format in 1988 and had had a strong follow-ing ever since. Off Road racing lov-ers, Jon and Midge Kennedy first raced the 2000 mile classic in 2003, but constant brake problems made the effort a lot less than satisfying. Teamed with Jack and Beth Photos: Kennedy/Maurer Team Maurer, the 2004 effort netted just the opposite re-sults; four stage wins and a resounding third overall in the original PanAm class. The seven day, seven stage race, run each Octo-b er begins in Tuxtla Gutierrez, just north of the Mexico-Guatemala border and passes through Oaxaca, Pueble, Morelia, Zacatecas before finishing in Nuevo Laredo. The stages are designed either "Transit" or "Special". In the Transit stages, the rac-ers intermingle and flow with daily traffic, while the Special stages allow the en-tries to race against the clock. The Kennedy/Maurer 1954 Lincoln Capri exceeded 130 miles per hour during these open high-way racing stages. Gaining in popularity year by year, the race is again attracting an international field and such spon-sor heavyweights as pharmaceuti-cal giant Pfizer and Corona Beer. With numerous classes, entrants can take the race as serious as they want, treating themselves to a lei-surely tourist-style 2000 mile cruise up the entire length of Mexico in October 2005 The exuberant crew, Jon and Midge Kennedy and Jack and Beth Maurer, their efforts in 2004 were well rewarded. near "Stock" cars or investing huge sums in 600 horsepower 50's clas-sics and hanging it out as racing leg-ends did, almost 50 years ago. Never far from the dirt, the Kennedys made it back in time for the Baja 1000 where their team fin-ished sixth in Class 12. · Seen here racing north in Mexico, the big Lincoln made a more than respectable showing in the 2004 La Carrera Panamericana.

There were a few mi-nor changes brought on by Mother Nature and the summer rains. Slight alterations around wash outs, etc. All in all, a technical, but still a quick course. There were the usual treacherous washes and gullies, rocks, and sand, but there were those sections where )OU amid use the horsepower you brung too. Only 50 of the 127 cars and trucks completed all six laps consisting of three laps in the morning and three more laps in the afternoon, of which the combined total times decided the various place fin-ishes, in class.

For example, the larger horsepower persons went at each other and the smaller rigs went out together. This kept things moving all day and for the most part kept the various cars at least a few feet apart, instead of a few inches. Well, most of the time.

Garman Ridge Rally By Scott Bottomley Photos: Motorsports Memories Alan Musev and Piers O'Hanlon drove their Audi Quattro to 1st overall, 1st WSRC Open and 1st CRS Open 4wd, not bad for a 20 year old driver. Ask any rally organizer and he or she will invariably tell you changes to rally roads at the last minute are not encouraged by the organizer. (See under U.S. Forest Service.) Needless to say this year's Gorman Ridge was different and only the second time in 16 years. From those I spoke with they thought it was a blast!! It was really a rally of "lucky tires", new experi-ences, failed motors (see under what might have been category) and of being misinformed. Open 2WD results might have looked a lot different had early and late retirements not occurred changing the leader board through-out the day. Dramatics shadowed this group even before the rally be-gan. Jeff Rados and Guido Hamacher in their Ford Ranger established the pace quickly taking first place in class on all stages right up to the service after SS6. At the half way mark, Jeffs thoughts were turning to a possible overall win, and with Amy Berbervanzo (Mit-subishi Open 4WD) in second place by 16 hundredths, he felt the im-possible could be· done. But Jeffs bid for overall supremacy ended on SS9 when a freeze plug killed his chances. Jeff summed up his feel-ings about the truck and his spouse, "The same engine meltdown oc-curred at Treeline while we were leading, but you wouldn't believe we couldn't shut down the motor even after we got back to service, only when we cut the fuel off did it stop running, but my wife said to go ahead and rebuild it (laugh)." Rotten luck again. Meanwhile, the pack behind Jeff were struggling to stay close, Mark Tabor and Ben Bradley (Acura RSX) at the time the leader went out were three-plus minutes be-hind, fortunately for them they didn't have to make that time up. But at the start of SS8, they were holding second place by a narrow margin of just 18 hundredths over Andrew and R. Lockhart (Honda CRX). After SS9, the lead shrunk again to 12 hundredths. On Stages 10 and 11, Mark managed to put dis-tance on the Lockharts, gaining in time increments of 21 and 81 hun-dredths, pulling away to win the class. Meanwhile the Lockhart's rally ended on SS 12 when their Honda yielded to rear suspension failure of the lateral link thus sur-rendering any chance of winning. They finished seventh in class. Tak-ing advantage of all this was the team of Dean Schlingmann and Chip Doeden (Suzuki Reno) who held third position in class in the closing stages. On SS9-ll, they fin-ished third, first and second in that order. They fell off a bit on SS12 to sixth but were classified second Mark Tabor and Ben Bradley took 1st in WSRC Production and 1st in CRS Open overall in class. Third place went to 2wd, their good looking Acura RSX performed well. Jose Mercado and Shea Burns in their Toyota Corolla, their highest finish was early on, finishing third on SS2. Jon Rood and Tim Hayosh, Ford Festiva, took fourth place, while Rem Wyatt and Pamela took fifth place with a fourth place on SSl and 6. Sixth iri class, first in Group 5 in WSRC, were Lisa Klassen and Rebecca Greek in her Toyota Corolla. Next were the ii Lockharts in seventh and in eighth were the Milos Brothers in their GMC Sonoma followed by Marco Pasten and Jennifer Imai in their Toyota Corolla, who finished third on SS3. With advice from Tony Chavez and the no fear attitude of his newbie navigator father-in-law Ed Amy BeberVanzo and Alex Kihurani were 2nd overall in their Mitsubishi Evo, 2nd VanDerPas (he hang glides off El WSRC Open and 2nd in CRS Open 4wd.

But it was the Mosers, Tim and Dick (VW Golf GTI) who unknowingly responded to Tony's recommendations to get a huge lead early before service that foiled Mike's early chances. Press-ing on as much as he could Mike hung close to the leaders, never losing sight of them, by the end of SS4 he was 30 hundredths behind, and by SS5 he was six hundredths behind. On this day the rally gods were not granting protection of suspension failure, unfortunately the Mosers broke a strut mount on Power Line North l and gave the lead to Mike and Ed (Toyota Corolla) for good after North Boundary East 2. By now the huge lead that Mike rallied to gave him enough breathing room (four stage wins and second place fin-ishes) over second place George Doganis and Tom Smith (Nissan Sentra SE-R) allowing him to cruise to a class win by 30 seconds.

Actually she drove her Mitsubishi Evo 8 to an impressive second place in Open 4WD and overall -with the help of a time control . offo:ial who wrote the finish time in the elapsed time space of the card of Alan Musev. "So much for being mature" said Amy after her celebration was cut short upon completion, when it was revealed by the team's co-drivers, that whc\t she thought was a 44 hundredths lead going into the start of SS 12 was actually a 3 hundredths. "I drove conservatively on Stage 12 thinking I had won, but did I learn a lot of this experience. It was also the first time I got to start a rally, I was the first car on course twice!" exclaimed Amy of her weekend with Lily (her car's name). Not to blame, Alan Musev's co-driver that victory was really theirs. ( Near f{liss -A Cali-fornia Rally Series history first; two women pilots winning back to back rallies.) For Alan Musev it was a cerebral thing, "I had to change my mental approach for the second half, I was too excited and I had to calm down, and in doing so it worked, I felt myself get smoother." With Alan's psyche in the right place he found himself down 28 hundredths to Amy after Jeff Rados dropped out on Power Line South 2, he also said, "I pushed harder in the later stages and drove my best on Power Line, driving ten tens, a beautiful stage." Amy didn't give in, she returned the favor on the next stage, North Boundary West 4, she won it increasing the lead to 46 hundredths. Alan found the water bars on SS9 not to his lik-ing when his engine cut off, but on the other hand Amy flew home with the win. But the final three stages were another story, Alan won all three and found himself just 3 hundredths behind before the start of the last and final stage, North Boundary East 4, he knew it was his event to win or lose. As for Alan he was very happy with his win, relaying this story afterwards, "Sometime dur-ing the early stages our gear lever kept popping out and Piers held it in place so it wouldn't pop out, while turning the pages of the route book."
