Wow, what a weekend we had! If you enjoy driving a Corvair, you really need to make plans to join us right in the middle of the country in Hastings, NE next year.


We had 32 participants signed up this year! We had a couple of last-minute cancellations due to health issues - mostly car health issues, and one person health issue (thankfully on the mend). Next year we really need to get 35+ to keep this event going. Where else are you going to see 35+ Corvairs and owners come out and have a great time driving on a road course, an autocross, and even some 2-block drag races?

Since all of the free image hosts have apparently become defunct, I'll just share the class winners for now, and you can see a picture of the full results on the Corvair Racers group on FB.

Day 1 - 2.1 Mile Road course:

SS1 - John Wilson 2:20.22
SS2 - Mitch Calvert 2:23.424
SS3 - Dan Badeer 2:20.119
SS4 - Mark Aksamit 2:10.844
IS2 - Cole Smith 2:24.048
IS3 - Armen Badeer 158.110
SM1 - Mark Allen 1:55.234
IS5 - Greg King 1:52.509

Day 2 - 1 Mile Autocross - now called the Corvaircross!

SS1 - John Wilson 1:28.777
SS2 - Henry Holling 1:39.034
SS3 - Mitch Carrao 1:19.422
SS4 - Mark Aksamit 1:23.676
IS2 - Cole Smith 1:30.961
IS3 - Armen Badeer 1:16.625
SM2 - Mark Allen 1:13.685
IS5 - Greg King 1:10.101

Armen shared the results on Facebook so I'm cross-posting. Good time was had by all. Thanks to Chris and his crew, of Shades Classic Cars, as well as George and his crew, of Motorpark Hastings, for a great event!

There is a correction the Autocross results...my 95hp/PG car is IS2, not IS3. smiling smiley

I was IS 5 on track day due to a different set of tires.

The NorthWest's own - Greg King of Snohomish, WA hauled one of his Corvair street racers down to Hastings and hauled home the Fastest Time of the Day for both the Road Course and the CorvairCross events!!
A fantastic builder/mechanic and driving talent to make it happen!!
Congratulations Greg! Great to have you in the Pacific Northwest Corvair Region.

Finally home from the Track Classic. Actually got home Friday, but had to relax for the weekend.

This was my first time at the Hastings MPH event, and first time on a 'long' road course. It was a total BLAST. If you have not been there - you have no idea what you are missing. Chris Shade puts on a great event - and George and his team at the track are amazingly well organized, for a smooth running event.

I have a couple videos of my runs. This is my '66 95hp / Powerglide 'race car' that I run in local SCCA events, since I bought it earlier this year. I was running Toyo R888 185/60-13 tires for the track (that were extremely worn) and Bridgestone RE71's on 15" Z-28 wheels for the Autocross. The car is basically stock, cut a couple (few?) coils, headers, and quick arms.

The first video is my 3rd run (since I forgot to turn the GoPro on...), on the 2 mile road course. 1st and last lap are warm up / cool down.

The second video is the Autocross - I think one of my fun-runs.

While Hastings is truly in the middle of no-where - its worth making the trip. I actually left hastings Sunday, and headed on a business trip, with the Corvair in tow for the week...
