Thunder On The Hill #5

General News

Next Saturday night Northern Californian’s will have a rare opportunity to see a first-rate automobile race at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds in Chico in the form of the World of Outlaws sprint car series. There are so many dramas and stories imbedded into the racing program that make the entertainment value over the top.
 

The appearance of the legendary Steven Kinser, multi-time champion and 500 + time feature winner, is just like seeing Babe Ruth at the peak of his career as a legend of baseball. He is that great and has the statistics to prove it.

Drones At Thunderhill

General News

The use of drones (aka Unmanned Aircraft Systems) for various activities is growing rapidly. Unfortunately they also create additional liability at the race track. Due to this, we wanted to let you know what our guidelines are for operating drones on Thunderhill property.

Commercial Unmanned Aircraft System owners must have proof of FAA certification and liability insurance naming Thunderhill Raceway as an additional insured. General iability insurance must specify that it includes the operation of Unmanned Aircraft.

Recreational use of unmanned aircraft is prohibited.

Thank you, Thunderhill Management.

Thunder On The Hill #3

General News

A new year where much is the same and much has changed started a few weeks ago. Welcome to 2014. What do you have in mind for this year? If you are reading this I hope you are planning San Francisco Region/SCCA Regional, Majors or even Runoffs racing before the end of 2014.


A top subject on the social network highway these days is speculation about what the 51st running of the SCCA National Championships in our region at Laguna Seca will mean for the Club.  A great many local racers [about ten that I have sampled] who have never gone to the annual gathering of SCCA’s best, are targeting the Runoffs in their road racing schedule. Most veterans believe that Laguna Seca Raceway and the attraction of Monterey and Carmel will add to the number of entries.  Time will tell.

Rotek Racing Wins NASA 25 Hour Event!

General News
Rotek Audi TT RS

WILLOWS, Calif. (Dec. 8, 2013) - The No. 24 Rotek Racing Audi TT RS won the eleventh running of the United States Air Force (USAF) 25 Hours of Thunderhill today.  Following the Rotek Audi to fill out the overall podium was the No.83 Barrett Racing Porsche GT3 Cup in second and the No. 38 Radical West Radical in third.

A field of 57 cars took the green flag at 11 a.m. Saturday morning for 25 hours of racing around the 2.58-mile, 15-turn Thunderhill Raceway. The race witnessed several leaders throughout the running including an ESR Class Wolf, ES Class Superlite and the winning ES Class Rotek Racing Audi TT RS. The Rotek team took over the lead at 5:00 a.m. Sunday morning and never looked back. The stout team was being pressured throughout the early hours by a speedy No. 38 Radical West Racing Radical. At 8:00 a.m. the Audi began stretch its legs and had a 30 lap lead with three hours remaining.  The eventual winning margin to the second place was 28 laps.  The Rotek Audi TT RS was driven by Robb Holland, Kevin Gleason, Jeff Altenburg, Roland Pritzker and Rob Huff.  
 
"It was a blast today racing here this weekend," Pritzker said. "We had a couple of little issues with contact that took a couple of kunards off in the front in the middle of the night, but we replaced them and kept going. It was smooth sailing. Really we didn't have any big issues.  We kept it on the track and out of the pits and all of the drivers ran nice and clean laps. My stints in the car were really fun, I just had a blast driving this Audi TT RS here at Thunderhill."
