WTBRT reaches endurance milestone 300


By carmerjr - Posted on 11 September 2005

Hey Everyone, CORSA SC conducted their annual autocross at a new site this year. It was a very nice course and ran on a weathered but solid asphalt surface in the large parking lot of Wren High School in Piedmont, SC. The weather was picture perfect and the course was made even more pleasant by a refreshing breeze which cooled us all day.

There was a nice mix of earlies, lates, stock, street prepared and competition Corvairs present. A go-cart and a late model Corvette and a Cadillac Hearse,yes Hearse, completed the field of entries.

Three Corvair Atlanta members competed this year. Ray Paul, CA president, brought and raced his late model convertible which is really a drag race car and of course WTBRT # 112 was ready and willing. Scott, Ray, and I all drove the venerable #112 and during the late afternoon the magic figure of 300 runs was achieved and surpassed as Ray took 2 runs in our Beef mobile. This is 300 runs
without any mechanical failures, or repairs of any type. We have a ball in our ULTRA xcrosser and we encourage each of you to build
an inexpensive car and go racing. Oh, Donnie Bird of "Flying Pig" fame, did NOT barbecue the BEEF team.

FTD of the day was produced by David Clemens in his 3.1 liter LM coupe. He ran a 38 second time.Tony Ellison, Bruce Shug, and Steve Avery gave it their best but couldn't match David this afternoon.
I was very proud of Scott as he pushed the BEEF to an outstanding time of 41.35. I was over a second slower in my best time of 42.56 while Ray Paul produced a 43.1 in his first time out with #112.
Everyone had as many course runs as they wanted and much fun was had by every entrant. Many thanks to everyone and especially Barry Ellison "Choir Boy" as Eventmaster of the Sweet Sixteenth "Corvairs in the Curves"
