Sonoma, CA - Scotty B. White surged through the field in his West Coast Corvettes DRM C500/R for a strong 8th place finish during Round 4 of the Speedvision World Challenge GT Series. Despite an 18th place start, White believes the Doug Rippie-built car was very competitive. His fastest lap time during the race was less than .3 seconds off of the race-winning C5 time, and second fastest of the eleven Corvettes contested.
"I am very pleased with how far we have come with this car," stated owner/driver White. "I believe hat the best is yet to come this season for Team NayKid Racing."
Doug Rippie shares White's optimism for the 2000 season. "This car is still under development. But, we are confident that we will accomplish the goals we set for Scotty as a driver as well as the goals for DRM Motorsports."
It was also an active weekend for Corvette enthusiasts. The West Coast Corvettes/C5 Registry Corvette Corral was one of the most active places off the track. The large contingent of enthusiasts enjoyed a parade lap around Sears Point. SCCA Pro Racing and Speedvision hosted a Corvette Fan Forum, which showcased the new Z06 along with racecars from all the Corvette teams represented at the event.
Speakers included expert engineer Gib Hufstader who shared tales from his 36 years of Corvette experience. John Heinrecy and Doug Rippie also fielded questions from the audience. Everyone was treated to an inside look at both the new 2001 Z06 and the Team NayKid Racing DRM C500/R.
Scotty B. White's next stop is Round 5 of the Speedvision World Challenge GT Series, August 18-20 at Circuit St. Croix, Quebec, Canada.
