There is never a dull moment in this sport and that’s what attracts most of us to sports car racing. But along with the racing itself is the camaraderie that develops amongst the racers over the months/years of competition. The success of NorCal SE30 isthe camaraderie we have within our group. The inherent risk we take (both financial and physical) makes this sport one where the participants literally become "comrades in arms". We have a real and tangible spirit of friendly good-fellowship in our group which people see and want to become a part of.
This is one of the most popular and exciting classes of spec racing in all of NASA. In 2013 we saw a 38 car field at Mazda Laguna Seca. We have new racers joining us in 2014 and we anticipate fields of 30+ cars in our regional races. You are welcome to join us.
As has been in the last five or six seasons, the NorCal SpecE30 Regional Champion was decided in the last race of the last weekend of the season.We had a tight three racer battle for the 2013 championship going between Larry Fraser, Michael Shawhan and Steve Ferrario. Larry emerged on top of the points pile besting second place finisher Michael Shawhan by a mere 18 points.Steve Ferrario finished out the season in the third spot.Fourth in season points went to Team BTM Motorworks.Fifth overall was secured by Team McMicking-Zanotto and sixth overall went to Team Clough Construction.
