GBC Motorsports Race Report: WORCS Round 6
GBC Motorsports supported riders competed in Round 6 of WORCS Racing this past weekend, earning a pair of class victories. Weather was favorable out at Pala Raceway, however the rough track proved difficult for many racers both in the SXS classes as well as the ATV classes.
Mitch Guthrie topped the SXS 1000 class at WORCS Round 6.
RJ Anderson got off to a great start on his GBC Dirt Commanders, converting a second place start off the line into a solid lead throughout the race. Mechanical issues late in the race dropped Anderson to an 11th place finish. Coming off of back-to-back wins, Anderson holds onto the sixth spot in the season standings.
Tim Wyatt put in the best result for GBC in the Pro class with an eighth place finish. He also leads all GBC racers in the class standings with the 4th position. Wesley Barker rounded out the top-10 and is ninth in the standings. James Hill and Tommy Scranton both fell victim to the challenging terrain and were forced to drop out. Hill’s Can-Am was left incapacitated following a collision and Scranton broke a front axle. Hill is fifth in the standings and Scranton is 11th.
Mitch Guthrie Jr. is staying hot and managed to negotiate the tricky course on his GBC Dirt Commanders. Guthrie pulled the holeshot and captured his fifth SXS 1000 victory of the season and extending his points lead in the process.
Nolan Remlinger grabbed the checkers in the SXS 850 class.
Nolan Remlinger was in second off the line but fought to the front for his first victory of the season aboard his GBC Mongrels. The SXS 850 win pushed him into sixth place in the class standings.
Brian Sirevaag represented GBC Motorsports in the ATV races. Sirevaag got off to a good start in the Prod A class race and ended up finishing in fourth and is also in fourth in the standings. Sirevaag put in a sixth place run in the competitive Pro-Am class aboard his GBC XC-Masters and XC-Racers, and is in eighth place in the class.
WORCS ATV&SXS Racing next takes on the legendary Glen Helen Raceway for Round 7, set for August 9-11.
