Another exciting SARA race this past weekend! The Miata class brought out a good bunch of cars and they sure put on a race! Mike Travers and Leo Craig kept some close competition and the main event was neck to neck racing, we weren't sure who would take the checkered flag win! But in the end the talented Leo Craig, who is just 17 years old, took the win for the Miata class! Congratulations Leo! The Street and Open Class also brought out some excited racers, a Fiat Aberth and a Corvette took the track for their first race. They had a blast moving up from Time Attacks and starting an actual race! Congratulations to Bruno Sommarive for taking the 1st place win in the Street Class! And lastly we had a fun race for the Vintage cars! A Porsche 914 and Alfa Spider put on some good racing and James Jerger in the Porsche finished 1st. Thank you to everyone who raced and we will see you next time!
This weekend's SARA Race was a success! We had Miatas, Pro Street and the Open Class on the track. The Spec Miatas put on quite an exciting race! Mike Travers and Doug Cloud kept it interesting until the very last lap. The main event was intense as these two skilled drivers fought for the lead the entire time and it looked like a tie as they both passed the checkered flag within thousandths of a second from each other! Thanks to our transponder system we were able to congratulate Mike Travers for taking the gold!! Thank you to everyone who came out and we look forward to our next race June 11-12!
Sandia Speedway is proud to announce that we are starting the Sandia Auto Racing Association! 2016 is a big year for us as we prepare for the 7 race dates we have scheduled. Sandia Auto Racing Association (SARA) is a club that allows cars to race in a safe, controlled environment on our 1.7-mile road course. With 7 classes to choose from, SARA is the perfect competition club for racers of any level. Beginners who have never raced before can enter our Street Class which allows street legal cars with little track experience. From there they can move up to our Pro Street class or our Open class. SARA also runs Contemporary, Vintage, Spec Miata and Formula Fords. We are excited to kick off our very first season of the Sandia Auto Racing Association! Our first 2 day event is scheduled for April 9-10.
