I could not be more proud of our friend and fellow Icrontian, Brian "Pseudonym" Novak. He is once again an SCCA national champion!

    Right, but his first was in a different discipline. I just read through the article - his first was F500

    More like Formula1. WRC is another branch of racing entirely, if I'm not mistaken.

    You are correct sir. I was joking about my known and stated bias for rally.
    Besides, what's there not to love about romping around in the dirt? Pavement is boring. :D

    Thanks everyone! It was one heck of a rain race. Track was pretty nasty the entire time and once I got a good feel for the car (only the second time we had it in the rain) I just put my head down and ran him down! This was sweeter than the first one since I was most definitely not the favorite to win and I was a rookie for this class this year!

    Indy or ALMS next if I could! Needs moar $$$$$!!

    Its also online if anyone wants to watch! Starts at 124:00 at this link. All the races of Sunday are there too, and I believe they have Saturday and Friday up there also if you are so inclined. 24 races in all I believe, all under the SCCA section. Unfortunately they don't have it split up for all the classes yet, give em a month to edit it all.

    On those wet tracks you gotta channel your inner Ayrton Senna ;)

    Awesome win, Novak!

    Hahaha, I literally repeated to myself several times during the race "Senna in a Toleman. Senna in a Toleman. Senna in a Toleman."

    Whoo, dang man, you got some nice slide going into turn one at that race start. So glad you linked to this. Awesome.

    It's funny, I don't know any of these drivers other than you, but just watching this race and seeing how they react has made me form favorites and enemies. I was rooting for Cooper to go for the bronze, and I was pissed when Pancea clipped him in the corner and spun him around.

    I frigging love motorsport. That was a fun race to watch.

    Actually, I would call that one a racing incident. Lucian was close enough to not need to give the corner to Glen, and then at the exit he held his line. Glen just pushed out into him. Glen is a real good friend of mine but he probably should have let Lucian take that corner. He was fast enough to get him later.

    I watched the race last night. The announcers were impressed with the gains you made on the lead racer. It was cool to watch.

    So how fast can those F1000s get on the straightaways? It looks like you carry some decent speed into those turns after the straights.

    Indeed. I would imagine that tensions get high when you're racing hard for the gold and the track is frigging soaked. Looked like a mental nightmare.

    When it is dry out, 145-150mph.

    ^^^ Reason I like road, but not so much F1000.
    To put this in perspective: that ain't that much slower than much out there short of F1. Le Mans (the one in France) has an average course speed of 120MPH. Rally sees top speeds of around 130-140MPH, and not often, either. Means Pseudonym's reaction times are on average <0.25s without the benefit of power steering. In a 'smack the button first' contest, none of us would stand a chance.
