The Zone 7 Autocross Series completed events 7 and 8 at Redwood Region’s event at Charles Schultz Airport in Santa Rosa. With only one event left in the 9 event series, it looks like several members of SVR are going to earn hard fought class wins. Venturing to Santa Rosa on the weekend of August 18th and 19th were from left to right: Collin Fat, Carl Winkler, Weyland Fat, Kent Treiber, Al Booth and John Leet.

In the crowded S13 class, Weyland Fat looks to have a solid lock on a second place finish, while John Leet who is competing in class S11 is a lock to win his first Zone Championship class win. John’s class is among the largest classes with over 13 drivers competing.  In class P16, Alan Booth looks like he could secure a second place finish going into the home stretch. This would also be a great finish for Alan considering he made some modifications to his Porsche Boxster after the first two events of the season and moved from stock class to production. In improved 5 (I05), Collin Fat has locked another class win heading into the home stretch.

The Zone autocross series is a competitive series where drivers test their skills against some of the best drivers in Zone 7. Unlike SVR’s autocross series where there are not enough drivers to fill a competition for class awards, the zone series had over 80 drivers participating. The Zone 7 series is likely the only Zone autocross series in PCA and is a testament to the popularity of the sport in Northern California. Regions that offer autocross include Golden Gate, Loma Prieta, Redwood, Sequoia, and Sacramento Valley.
