The Nitty Gritty:
Welcome to Episode 49 of the Pro-Touring.com Podcast!
For those new to the scene, the Pro-Touring.com podcast show is hosted by myself and Larry Callahan, the owner of Pro-Touring.com.
The show is sponsored by the fantastic hot rod wiring supply company, Ron Francis Wiring, and we’re very appreciative that they were our FIRST EVER show sponsor, and the first sponsor to re-sign for 2013!
2013 Ohio Muscle Car Challenge!
In this episode of the podcast we had the change to dig in deep to Bob Bertelsen’s recent Ohio Musclecar Challenge event. 31 total cars started the event, but 7 were lost to attrition throughout the day – which may be a new record for us! Another point of interest is that (perhaps for the first time) vehicles were seperated into “ABS” and “Non-ABS” class!
Here are a few interesting stats about the event itself:
- Saturday everyone got 7 road races at 12 minutes each.
- The road course at Pittsburgh International Race Complex is 1.6 miles long, has several elevation changes, and is a blast to drive.
- The local church, The Upper Room Fellowship provided lunch
- The VDA lot for the autocross track was 7 acres big.
- All cars got 16 autocross runs – an UNHEARD OF number!
