Mile High Indoor Championships – Report

Mile High Indoor Championships – Report

5280 Raceway in Denver, Colorado hosted the 2015 Mile High Indoor Champs. While the weather outside was cold and slushy, the action on the track was scorching hot with some very close action across most classes during an event featuring Formula, World GT, Touring Car and 1/12th scale classes. The “Mile High” kicked off with open practice most of the day on Thursday followed by the regularly scheduled club race that evening, which provided those who travelled to the event early a taste of racing action before the actual event began. Most drivers found solid pace by the end of controlled practice on Friday and lap times began to fall as qualifying began Saturday morning on this fast and fairly open layout, designed to encourage passing and plentiful on-track action. In Modified Touring Car Paul Lemieux snatched the TQ spot by just over 2 tenths from Kevin Hebert. Others rounding out the TQ honors were local club president Mario Ficco in Formula, Brian Wynn in WGT, Kyle Klingforth in 13.5 Touring Car, Bill Sydor in 17.5 Touring Car, Kevin Hebert in Modified 1/12th scale and Mitch Witteman in both 13.5 and 17.5 1/12th scale.
