Paul Quackenbush of Grass Valley, California, driving his Lotus 7, powered by a Seven Enterprises-built 1500cc Ford motor at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, California (May 21, 2011).
This was the first race for the Lotus with the Seven motor. At the start, Paul drives into first overall position, with the 2.5 Trans-Am Alfa GTV right behind him. The Alfa tried to pass the Lotus for several laps, but was unable to do so. Paul had a good lead on the field, until the rear suspension broke late in the race (around 9:40), forcing him to watch the last few laps from the side of the track. Good job, Paul, and better luck next time!
