Luca Pirri and Giorgio Vinella opened the season taking a stunning victory for the newly born team LP Racing, while Davide Amaduzzi posted the fastest lap of the race on his #11 Wolf GB08 lined up by Team Emotion.

The appointment at the Ferrari circuit has been a great debut for LP Racing that started on a 06 Wolf DB08high since qualifying, as Luca Pirri put his #88 Wolf GB08 in pole position. LP Racing ran a dominant race, leaving the lead only for a few laps after the start and during the pit stops phase. Pirri and Vinella installed themselves on top at lap 37 and did not leave it since. Such a great performance allowed them to pull away from Ghezzi-Cerati-Romani (Porsche 997 GT3R), that ended second and from Rinaldi-Biffis, third on Tatuus PY012.

In Memoriam

Michael William von Quilich 1947 - 2016

11 michael von quilichSadly we must report the passing of one of our long-time Charter Members, Michael Von Quilich. A well-respected member of the Viper Community who lived in Pahrump with his beautiful wife, Virginia, Michael was a generous and spirited part of our Club. Michael's racing career was impressive as he and his MeNo Race team won the SCCA Majors Western Conference Championship in 2013 and the NASA National Championship the same year with races at tracks in Seattle, Portland, California and Utah. The team also set new track records at every event they raced in NASA Super Touring 1 and SCCA Touring 1 classes.

12 michael von quilichMichael and Virginia were always a winning team in racing and in life, traveling the country for Viper events and races. You never saw one without the other at Club Spring Mountain events. A master of the pit stop, Virginia timed all of Michael's laps and did the tire pressures when he stopped for tire checks and their devotion to one another was an inspiration.

There will be a deep void around the Club without Michael von Quilich and our hearts go out to his family in their time of sorrow. Michael, you will be missed by your fellow Club members and friends in the racing community and beyond. Leave a message for the family on Michael's Memorial page.

Join us for an action-packed November Club race weekend! The fun begins with the Saturday and Sunday Drivers Meeting at 8:00 am,Club Race Aerial followed by 25 minutes of Orientation laps at 50 mph speeds (flashers required.) 25-minute sessions (Radicals, Sports Cars and non-racers) for practice, fun and qualifying will run throughout the day.

Racers, don't miss this important weekend - you only have two more chances to increase your points for next month's year-end awards banquet, December 12-13.This month the race will be held on the Mansell "E" 3.2-mile configuration, featuring sweeping corners, quick esses and off-camber turns. Your Friday practice sessions will be on the Mansell "E" configuration so you can prepare for the race weekend.

We are happy to announce that by popular demand, Bracket racing is back.......open to all members and all types of cars. This is a "non wheel to wheel" competitive race on Saturday afternoon that gives everyone a chance to win! A driver submits a lap time that will be used to determine "the gap". At the start of the race the slowest car will be released first and each car thereafter will start according to the gap. In theory on the last lap, everyone should reach the finish line at the same time. The excitement of the race will build each lap as the drivers' gaps close in and in anticipation of the final last lap. We hope to see all our members participate in this fun and competitive event!
