SAID TOPS TOURING FIELD AT LIME ROCK; BOOHER WINS WHEN DOWNES DISQUALIFIED IN T2

LAKEVILLE, Conn., -- Boris Said, the fast qualifier for Monday's Trans-Am Championship race, led start to finish in a Ford Mustang Cobra to win the SCCA World Challenge Touring Division T1 race at Lime Rock Park. He completed 41 laps for a distance of 62.73 miles. In the T2 class, Charlie Downes, Hawthorne, Calif., took his third straight win but was disqualified in post-race technical inspection, giving the win to Paul Booher, in the Quaker State/ICY Racing Saturn. Lou Gigliotti, of Garland, Tex., drove his Ford Mustang to second after passing the car of Rob Fellows, of Burlington, Ont, while Greg Theiss, of Omaha, Neb., had to battle past several cars to claim a third place finish in his Eagle Talon. Kermit Upton, of Ludlow, Vt. ran second until he spun off the 1.53-mile, 10-turn track. He was able to move back up to fifth by the finish. In the T2 class, Paul Booher, of Pinellas Park, Fla., finished second (and the victory following Downes' disqualification) after a hard fight with James Sofranas, of Wellesley, Mass. They traded third several times before Sofranas ran off the track after an unsuccessful passing maneuver put Booher ahead to stay. Alain Chebier, Pelham, N.Y., climbed up the field to finish second while Booher's teammate David Rosenblum finished third.
