The Classic Sports Racing Group (CSRG) held its annual Charity Challenge at Infineon Raceway (formerly Sears Point) in California over the Oct 1st-2nd weekend. Veteran VRCBC racer Glen Gibbons and his wife Karen, and the club's good friend and frequent photograph contributer Jim Moody and his wife Colleen went down and have sent us this report. (Thanks folks.)
VRCBC stalwart Ian Wood was there with his Rawlson and had a very good weekend. In Sunday's Group 6 race, he placed third ahead of the big block Can Am cars of Tom Malloy (McLaren M8E), Jim Stengel (McLaren M8F) and Fred Cziska (Shadow DN4A). Fellow VRCBC member Keith Frieser won the race with his Lola T290 with second spot taken by R Smith in his Chevron B-19.
Rides for Charity were offered with a wide selection of race cars to choose from, and it looks like these were the highlights of the trip for Glen and Jim. Glen being a devoted Alfa Romeo aficianado (fanatic?) took three laps around Infineon with Jon Norman and his ex-Trans Am Alfa GTV. Jim chose three fast and furious laps with Tom Malloy in his McLaren M8E. Were you able to hold the camera steady Jim?
