The F600 Challenge Series opened its 2016 season with its first time appearance at the recently repaved GingerMan Raceway near South Haven, MI. The open flowing track with its high speed sweepers makes for great racing. There were seven F600 Challenge drivers who raced this past weekend. For the 15 lap race #1 on Saturday, sim racer, Sven deVries, took the pole with a 1:34.7 with veteran 2015 Series champion, Aaron Ellis in second. In the race, these two immediately started dicing back and forth until Sven lost his drive chain on the 9th lap. The order of finish was Aaron Ellis, 1st, series rookie Barry Luterek, 2nd, Carl Maier, 3rd, Mo Makki, 4th, series rookie Jeff DeLong, 5th, series rookie Zak Morvik, 6th and Sven deVries, 7th.

For race #2 on Sunday, Sven deVries did not qualify so Aaron Ellis took the pole with a 1:35.6 followed by Barry Luterek in 2nd. In the race, Sven deVries, starting from the back of the pack, charged up to the front just behind Aaron Ellis by the 2nd corner. These two swapped the lead several times until near the end when Sven was struck by bad luck yet again with a failed motor. Aaron Ellis then cruised to 1st place for his second race win of the weekend; 2nd was Carl Maier, 3rd was Mo Makki, 4th was Sven deVries, 5th was Barry Luterek, 6th was Jeff DeLong and 7th was Zak Morvik.

After two races, the points standing are as follows:
1. Aaron Ellis 24
2. Carl Maier 22
3. Mo Makki 20
4. Barry Luterek 18
5. Sven deVries 16
6. Jeff DeLong 14
7. Zak Morvik 12

The Formula 600 Challenge moves on to Round #2 at the Road America June Sprints, June 17-19.

We are very thankful for our valued sponsors who have made this series possible:

F600 CHALLENGE SERIES: ROUND #2 AT ROAD AMERICA JUNE SPRINTS

The four mile long iconic track with its long straights and fast corners makes top end speed critical. Calvin Stewart, the high speed master in his Blade, won the pole with a 2:22.398 followed by the veteran Aaron Ellis with a 2:24.814, 3rd Sven DeVries in the yellow Banana Boat, 4th Barry Luterek, 5th Carl Maier, 6th Hunter Brayton in his brand new Wildcat, 7th George Fox and 8th Mo Makki with no time due to a bad axle. In the race, Calvin did not start for religious reasons, so Aaron Ellis inherited the pole and led the whole race with Sven DeVries in 2nd with a dragging brake caliper slowing him down; Mo Makki was 3rd, Barry Luterek, with motor trouble, was 4th, Hunter Brayton was 5th and Carl Maier was 6th.

Qualifying for the 2nd race was based on either your qualifying time or your race time whichever was faster. Thus Calvin Stewart retained the pole with his 2:22.398 qualifying time and since Aaron Ellis did not beat Calvin’s time in the Saturday race (2:25.335) he stood on his earlier qualifying time of 2:24.814, 3rd was Sven DeVries, 4th was Barry Luterek, 5th was Carl Maier, 6th was Hunter Brayton and 7th was Mo Makki who had fixed his axle. For the race on Sunday, Aaron Ellis used all of his veteran experience and stayed with Calvin Stewart and they swapped the lead several times during the race. Aaron bettered his qualifying time by about a tenth of a second at 2:24.752 during this back and forth action. On the last lap Aaron got ahead of Calvin but Calvin was able to draft back past Aaron to take the win by just over three tenths of a second – a good, close race. Barry Luterek fixed his motor issue from the 1st race and finished a fine 3rd place, Sven DeVries was 4th, Mo Makki was 5th, and Carl Maier was 6th.

After four races the points standings are as follows:

1. Aaron Ellis 48
2. Carl Maier 38
Mo Makki 38
Sven DeVries 38
Barry Luterek 38
6. Calvin Stewart 14
Jeff Delong 14
8. Zak Morvik 12
Hunter Brayton 12

Whew! A bunch of drivers are all knotted up in the season standings, this will be very interesting as the season progresses.

The F600 Challenge Series moves on to Round #3 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Aug. 12 -14.

We are very thankful for our valued sponsors who have made this series possible:

The long banked high speed oval turns at Charlotte Motor Speedway are tough on equipment as several drivers had equipment issues during the course of this weekend. Qualifying for the Saturday race showed that the veteran and series leader, Aaron Ellis, in command as he easily won the pole with a 1:18.628. For the rest of the grid were drivers re-learning this track and a novice. Second on the grid was John Pickle, a veteran driver but a newcomer to the F600 Challenge, with a 1:25.402. John was followed by Carl Maier in 3rd, George Fox in 4th, Mo Makki in 5th, novice Jeff DeLong in 6th and Sven deVries in 7th. For the race, Aaron Ellis checked out and won by a good margin but almost did not finish as he had to slow considerably due to a deflating right rear tire thanks to the high banked oval turns. Behind Aaron was where most of the action occurred with John Pickle finishing 2nd, Carl Maier 3rd, George Fox 4th, Mo Makki 5th, Jeff DeLong 6th. Sven deVries could not start due to a mechanical failure in the grid. Sven was done for the weekend.

For the Sunday race, qualifying was held late Saturday afternoon, the third session of the day for the drivers. Aaron Ellis went slower at 1:19.599 but still had the pole. However, the rest of the field was learning the track and improved their times. Most notable was the novice driver, Jeff DeLong, who went 4 seconds faster at a 1:23.077 to qualify 2nd; close behind in 3rd was Carl Maier; 4th was John Pickle; 5th was Mo Makki; 6th was George Fox who could not qualify as he had mechanical issues. In Sunday’s race, Aaron Ellis again checked out and won the race, this time with no excitement. Jeff DeLong finished a solid 2nd and his best race finish to date. Although Carl Maier finished 3rd, George Fox almost caught Carl twice but George spun each time that he got close to Carl to finish 4th. John Pickle was 5th. Mo Makki could not start.

For the weekend, here are the series points won by each driver:

1. Aaron Ellis 24
2. Carl Maier 22
3. John Pickle 20
4. Jeff DeLong 18
5. George Fox 16
6. Mo Makki 14
7. Sven deVries 0

For the season, the series points are now as follows:

1. Aaron Ellis 72
2. Carl Maier 60
3. Mo Makki 52
4. Sven deVries 38
5. Barry Luterek 38
6. Jeff DeLong 32
7. John Pickle 20
8. George Fox 16
9. Calvin Stewart 14
10. Zak Morvik 12
11. Hunter Brayton 12

The ties from the June Sprints round have cleared up a little bit as there are now only ties between Sven and Barry along with Zak and Hunter. This could clear up some more when the F600 Challenge Series moves on to Round #4 at Barber Motorsports Park, Aug. 26 -28.

FORMULA 600 CHALLENGE SERIES: ROUND #4 AT BARBER MOTORSPORTS PARK

This time of the year the heat can be really unbearable in the deep south but this weekend’s weather provided a slight reprieve with a nice wind for most of the race event. This was the very first time that Aaron Ellis had ever been on this famous track but it did not take this crafty old veteran very long at all as he steadily improved his lap times with every session on the track. Qualifying for Saturday’s race saw veteran John Pickle in the former Banana Boat (2nd at the Daytona Runoffs) take the pole with a 1:39.652, followed by Carl Maier in 2nd, rookie Jeff DeLong in 3rd, Aaron Ellis in 4th, George Fox in 5th, another rookie Zak Morvik in 6th and returning to the Series, Fred Edwards in 7th, re-learning the car and the track. The start of the race saw Aaron Ellis charge to the front from 4th with John Pickle right with him. This battle continued for several laps until Aaron laid down a fast lap of 1:37.358 to pull away from John and win the race with John finishing in 2nd; 3rd was Jeff DeLong, 4th was George Fox, 5th was Carl Maier, 6th was Zak Morvik and 7th was Fred Edwards.

Since the grid for Sunday is determined by your fastest lap of the event, whether in qualifying or the Saturday race, Aaron Ellis decided to sit on his 1:37.358 set during the Saturday race. John Pickle did not improve his best lap time of 1:39.652 and settled for 2nd on the grid; Jeff DeLong improved his lap time to a 1:41.674 to take the 3rd spot, George Fox also improved his lap time to take 4th, Zak Morvik took the 5th spot and Carl Maier moved to the back after changing cars – Fred Edwards turned his car over to Carl to run the Sunday race. At the start, John Pickle and Aaron Ellis swapped the lead several times until John had to spin his car to avoid another car in the spider hairpin. Aaron then proceeded to increase his lead with a new fast time of 1:35.792. In the meantime, John Pickle was on a mission to catch both Jeff DeLong and George Fox who had passed John during his spin and re-start. Over the next 8 or so laps of this 15 lap race, John reeled in and passed first George Fox and then Jeff DeLong. Aaron Ellis won going away, John Pickle got a much deserved 2nd place from way back in the pack, George Fox finished 3rd, Jeff DeLong finished 4th, Carl Maier finished 5th and Zak Morvik finished 6th.

The points for this weekend’s event are as follows:

1. Aaron Ellis 24
2. John Pickle 22
3. Jeff DeLong 20
4. George Fox 18
5. Carl Maier 16
6. Zak Morvik 14
7. Fred Edwards 12

After four rounds, the Series Points standing are now:

1. Aaron Ellis 96
2. Carl Maier 76
3. Jeff DeLong 52
4. Mo Makki 52
5. John Pickle 44
6. Sven deVries 38
7. Barry Luterek 38
8. George Fox 34
9. Zak Morvik 26
10. Calvin Stewart 14
11. Hunter Brayton 12
12. Fred Edwards 12

We have two ties - for 3rd/4th and for 6th/7th which should be resolved at Atlanta.

FORMULA 600 CHALLENGE SERIES: FIRST TIME AT NOLA MOTORSPORTS PARK

A change in the Runoffs qualifying requirements forced a last minute change in the schedule from the Road Atlanta Major race to the NOLA Super Tour one week earlier. During the course of the weekend, the drivers and crew had to work extra to fix damage caused by the rough track surface. For the Saturday qualifying, Clint McMahan, after racing in USF2000 series for the 2016 season, quickly learned the track and qualified on the pole with a 1:46.591, breaking the track record of 1:52.134 set in 2014 by over 5.5 seconds; this was not unique, however, as FF driver, David Livingston, also broke his class record by over 4.5 seconds. Second on the grid was Sven DeVries with a 1:50.818, also under the old record. In the Saturday race, Clint checked out and won going away with Sven finishing second, followed by Carl Maier, Zak Morvik and Jeff DeLong.

For the Sunday qualifying, Clint McMahan again took the pole with Sven DeVries in second and Jeff DeLong improving significantly to qualify for third on the grid. In the Sunday race, Clint again jumped ahead only to be hit on the third lap by the rough track gremlin who had been beating up all the other drivers over the weekend as his Watts link broke, ending his race. Sven DeVries won this race, his first win, with Jeff Delong in second, for his best finish yet, followed by Zak Morvik, also his best finish, Carl Maier and Clint McMahan.

After the first round the series points standing are as follows:

1. Sven DeVries 24
2. Clint McMahan 22
3. Jeff DeLong 20
4. Carl Maier 20
5. Zak Morvik 20

This three way tie for 3rd will not last long as Round #2 at VIR is coming up on April 14-16.
The two races can be watched live at http://www.scca.com/live
