Ultimate Speed Run 2011
Results can be found HERE
Just got home from the USR. I am tired, beaten and a
little bit dirty but I had a great time. The turn out was
better then we all expected and the weather was maybe
the best ever.
Only two records fell large scale (116 mph) and Open
wheel (103 mph) and a few new members were added to
the 100 mph club (Brian, Tom, Nick and Tony)
Some current record holders seemed to struggle today
but it didn't effect guys like Richard Tompkins who
might have laid down the most impressive set of runs
ever witnessed at an ISC event, out of his 9 runs I
believe all but one (spur gear death) were between 111
mph and 117 mph an unbelievable feat out of a 2wd 2
cell full bodied car. Tom Kendall in his 2 cell car
worked and worked all day trying to sort out its ill
tempered need to go everywhere but straight and then in
the his final try with the daylight fading dropped a run of
102 mph to earn his spot in the 100 mph club. Brain B
gets the iron man award recording 14 runs in his IC big
block dragster with a best of 101 mph. The hard charger
award goes to two guys making their first appearance at
a ISC race, Tony L in his very first run took the open
wheel record with a run of 103 mph and not to be out
done his partner Nick Steel destroyed the large scale
record on his first pass with a run of 114 mph but that
wasn't enough he made one more pass and bumped his
own record to 116 mph.
Thank you to everyone that came out to support the ISC
in our yearly event only 364 days until we get to do it
Street Meet 2011
What a great
day!!!! The weather was beautiful, the 'track' was clean and dry but since my
last visit there are a few tar dollops that I'll remove before the next one.
Probably had 30 people out there as entrants and spectators. A special spectator
was Jeannie Pflum, one of the fastest women on earth...she has gone over 300 mph
in Seth Hammond's streamliner and has ridden a production 1000 cc motorcycle to
196 mph! Nuff said!
Back to our racing.... We started running at 10 AM and ran pretty steady all day
with nearly 100 runs. The clocks worked great all day and we had a fair share of
those who literally flew through the traps. The 100 mph Street Meet barrier
still stands though....two racers got close but weren't able to break through...
Here are the results....
Ryan Schellerup....3s HPI Blitz, made 11 runs with a best speed of 56.63 with a
56.30 back up
Paul Harding...4s 4wd Slash, made 12 runs, best speed of 59.41 and three others
in the same range, 59.34, 59.24 and 59.11
Alec Beaubois...3s Slash, 13 runs, his last being the fastest at 54.28 with a
54.20 back up
Jake Rosen...2s, TC5, 9+ runs...a couple he flew through the
traps....literally...and one ended up in the shrubs...very high entertainment
His top speed was 95.36 with a 95.29 back up! On each of his runs the second set
of timers had a higher speed....sometimes more than 1 mph. He needed a longer
.......2s Slash, top speed of 54.27 with a back up of 53.25 from an earlier run.
Richard Lewis....dead stock Slash, seriously undergeared, 8 runs all between
19.62 and 21.94mph
Kevin Osman....2wd Stock, NASCAR body, pan car, 1s(!!!) started out wanting 75
mph, revised it to 70, started out at 56 mph and on his last run hit EXACTLY
70.00 mph with a 69.82 back up.
....same car with 2s, started with an 86 mph run, third of four runs was 91.40
with a 90.43 back up run. He was SURE he was going to hit 100....oooooopsie!
Greg Hurtado (uncle frankenstiens hobbys, Oakland) showed up as I was picking up
the fencing with an open car, 8s I believe, 4wd...he's been over 100 with this
car and made a few runs with a best of 81.51 but fried a motor and two ESC's in
the process(one actually in flames!)...probably wishes I had already picked up
the speed trap!!!
