Whoa Baby!!

Dennis Repel (Chevy Camaro) lays down a smoke screen in Mission’s Turn 2 in an (unsuccessful) attempt to confuse second place Mark Brown (Lotus Seven S3) – Michael Stanway photo

Dennis Repel was leading the first race on September 23rd when his throttle stuck open entering Turn 2. Mike Stanway captured the moment as Dennis laid on the anchors big time while a startled Mark Brown, who was right behind, tried to figure out what to do. Mark said later: “My instincts told me to steer towards the air without tire smoke and it seemed to work.”

With judicious use of the kill switch through the rest of the race, Dennis was able to recover back to second place. In the subsequent laps, it was Phil Roney who got to watch the display. (See the other photos below.) Great photos Mike; thanks.
