    Default FE2 - Arizona Chapter

    24 March - Air and track temp were beautiful today outside of Casa Grande, AZ. The FE2 cars which make their home in the Sonoran Desert met up today for some Test N Tune at the newest racing facility in Arizona. The Podium Club ! The racing surface was completed a few months ago and curbing will be going in over the summer. Buildings and facilities are going up as quickly as permitting, construction and materials allow.

    It was a fantastic day and after each of us had a few sessions to get familiar with the circuit, we got the cars together on track and had some good fun running close with each other.

    Corey (red car) has a YouTube channel and when we can get together again to drop off some in car video, he plans to put it up there.

    Default Arizona FE2's at Eagles Canyon, TX

    Two of the Arizona FE2's made the trek to Decatur, Texas and ran a Majors event with SCCA. The event is very properly named the Sunburn Grand Prix. It was 'warm' last weekend. But, there was also a nice breeze that blew all day and that helped out tremendously.

    Special thanks goes out to Jay Messenger in west Texas. I was delivering some parts to him and while in Muleshoe, TX Jay helped me with a little 'tune up' to my rig and got me back on the road. Thanks again Jay and good luck to you at Barbers !!

    There were 7 FE2's at this event. Very nice running with the Hillenburg Motorsports guys again. Thank you to Darryl and Roy for assistance at the track and for some great hospitality in the pit and paddock.

    Eagles Canyon Raceway went under new ownership a couple years ago. The new owners did a great job with track layout modification and complete resurface. If you have not raced at Eagles Canyon... you are missing out !!

    Default Another FE2 in AZ

    An FE2 reentered competition last weekend under new livery and ownership. The car below was Brandon Aleckson's car for many years. It was recently purchased by Tim Rose who is a driving instructor at Podium Club in Arizona. Car looked fantastic and Tim drove well on Saturday.

    Podium Club is on the SCCA calendar this year and a Majors was recently announced for this facility. Dates and Info can be seen at SCCA Majors / Super Tour calendar. Or here:

    Would love to take a look, the website doesn’t work.

    Thanks Tim, was hoping it was on the way, to run laps in the Westy.

    Beautiful website!

    Another club, much further along in amenities and arguably just as good a track (takes full advantage of a gulley to provide interesting elevation changes), is in Willcox if you happen to go that way.

    Link to event - includes Formula Ford Drivers Club group, Vintage / Historical. All tire rules listed in GCR will NOT be in effect... great for someone like me who runs Pirelli tires on my FC with ProAutoSports. So... with my 88 Renard FC I have the option of running Vintage or FC. Not held a SCCA license since the 1990's, this is enough to entice me - already started license waiver process & arraigning to pre-tech my car - most likely I'll enter as vintage.

    Default Primer for Majors

    There are 5 cars in Arizona that we all know of. 1 of them is in the shop torn apart, getting data and electrical updates. It should be back on track before mid year. The other 4 were on the track last weekend. This was a few weeks prior to the SCCA Majors in Arizona.

    There was some rain on Thursday night prior to the event. So, it was a bit damp all around, but by Sunday the track was dry and we were able to enjoy some very nice green laps of racing. I had an electrical problem that took me out of the race and Corey is still chasing some gremlins in his car after a complete restoration during 2023. He should have all the bugs worked out by the time of Majors event in March.

    There is great racing in Arizona this time of year, especially at Arizona’s newest track Podium Club. Fast track with lots of passing opportunities. Looking forward to the SCCA majors the first weekend of March.
