Johnny Ackerman won Watkins Glen “Maria de Villota Memorial Race” race of Groundhog 1967 season | Oct 17, 2013
Starting from position 1 on the grid, Johnny Ackerman's Cooper T81B crossed the line ahead of Gabor Olah's BRM P115 to take the win. James Marchyshyn rounded out the top three in a Lotus 49, while fastest race lap was set by Gregory Taber.
Round 7. Dedicated to Maria de Villota.
No Cooper for Mark. (1)
No Eagle (2), nor Ferrari (1) for Gabor.
Taking the Brabham to the Glen
Not working this Thursday.
My race was not at all where it should have been, a bit disappointing especially since I always enjoyed the Glen.
I completed over 100 practice laps and knew I could (in theory) do 30 x 1.06 laps in a row. But in the actual race I didn't seem to have any stamina at all. A momentary lapse in concentration sent me straight on at the Loop on lap three and ... that's the way it was.
Congratulations Johnny & podium, and also welcome/congrats to Gregory, that looked like a solid premiere run.
I like the dedication to Marie De Villota, great idea and well done Jani. Believe I will go with the Lotus, or the Eagle tough time deciding. Thank god got a couple of more days of deciding.
Brabham, or BRM, that is the question :)
Good choice ;)
Don´t have time , sorry
Long time since i raced GPL, and i saw the race in igor with less than 3 minutes to go, but i decided to give it a go. Hope its okay. I was getting back into it, and trying to stay out of everyones way. Had a blast, and am quite happy with my 1:05,74 in the Cooper.
Thanks for racing all!
It was great to see you back after such a long vacation. Join anytime, or join always ;)
A race to remember. It was not my best performance but the race itself was good enough to rate it as great.
I had a solid in qualfying, nowhere near my chassis PB but it was okay. The start was a bit scary as James was sliding sideways with the Lotus but everyone could solve it and we had a clean first lap. And it turned to be a clean first 6-10 laps together in a 4-6 cars pack. It was pure GPL as its best.
Later Gregory had a moment in the Loop and unfortunately I could not avoid the contact, launched Greg into the fiery air, and also damaged my own car badly. A few meters later I had to reset.
I thought my race was practically over but got Mike in sight and I drove hard to catch him. A bit too hard maybe as just when I closed the gap between us it started to widen again. I lost the chance for further improvements.
After Mike went off I had a few lonely laps then realized that Greg is emerging from behind quite speedily. A bit of math and I realized that he could not catch me till the finish line. Next lap I went off in the Loop.... Three laps were to go, but yet again I had to stop for a reset. This way I let Greg and the front runners through.
P7 finally. Hopefully I will do better on the Ring.
Congrats to Johnny on his maiden pole and victory (sixth winner in seven races!).
Thanks all for coming.
Sid, wheel problems?
That was a blast! First real race for me online. I appreciate you guys letting me race with you.
I apologize to Jani and Roo. My two mistakes added to your race times. I probably slowed Mike down too when I spun in The Loop. I thought it was Mike that hit me but Jani must have been behind him. Roo, I didn't expect you to make it back on the track so quickly or I'd have slowed down before I got so close. By the time I realized what was happening there was little I could do. I need more experience.
“Greg is emerging from behind quite speedily. A bit of math and I realized that he could not catch me till the finish line.“ Yeah, I realized that too but I wasn't gonna slow down.
Take care fellas. I'll try to meet you at the Nurburgring next week if I can.
Great race. Qualy had me down in 9th for the start but I made up a bunch of spots on the first laps. After the field had settled down I was 4th, 3rd after Andrew spun of at the Loop. The guys behind me suddenly disappeared 12 laps into the race and I had about 10s on them next time round. In the end James got by me after 2 or 3 laps of trying to get by me.
Sorry I couldn't make the start, but my steering went all strange on me. I thought at first the wheel had a problem, but I've had a look today and it turns out that the steering linearity button was over on the non-linear side, when it should be on the linear side. I've tried a few laps and everything is working fine now.
How it got over to the non-linear side is still a mystery.
Started 3rd on the grid, missed the pole position by only 0.05. Was the quickest i had gone all week. Had another horrible start had way too much wheel spin and went sideways. Sorry to all of those that I caused a problem too. And after watching the replay came to the notion that I am Mark Webber when it comes to starts. For every good start I have I have about 5 or 6 bad starts. But once I got past the start the race was on. I must say that Kovacs dive at the loop on the first lap was a very awesome move. Then was in a pack racing with 4 to 5 other cars. That was great clean racing. After moving through the pack I blew my engine so I had to get my car stopped to do a car reset. After that It was all about gaining back time to which I made my way back through the field to finish 3rd after a great battle with Kovacs. So to finish 3rd after all that was a good result with me. So looking forward to one of the greatest tracks ever made “The Ring“
