1987 BUICK GNX # 480

MIKE GALLO

You might want to take a seat for this. Or maybe you can just stand, whatever you want. How about a rare 1987 Buick Grand National GNX with just 8.5 miles on the odometer that sold last week for a record $200,000! Like wow! This car was number 480 out of 547 cars that were built. The GNX was a special edition Buick Grand National and featured a turbocharged 3.8 Liter V6 that was officially rated at 276 horsepower but we all know it put out much more as it was one of the fastest production cars built at the time. This car was listed on bringatrailer.com and in the final 10 minutes the auction jumped from $135,000 to the winning $200,000. The car still had its original plastic on the seats and I believe was one of the lowest

mileage GNX’s to date. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read the news of what it sold for. I was astonished as this is a car that was built when I was 17 years old. I don’t believe I saw any on the streets ever but I knew very well of these cars. It’s crazy to see a car from the eighties sell for that kind of money. I have noticed a few of the other cars

I grew up loving starting to appreciate finally in price within the last 5 years. Guess that’s a signal that I’m getting old or maybe not. Just figured I would let you guys know about this rare gem. Happy reading.

A Trip Down MIKE GALLO

Well it’s time for a trip down memory lane.

1986 DODGE DAYTONA TURBO Z Some of you guys might remember seeing these cars on the streets in the mid-1980s. Back then they were pretty cool cars and they were quick for what they were back then. Dodge really didn’t have any Flagship cars back then besides this one. This particular Dodge sported a turbocharged 4 cylinder 2.2 engine that produced a whopping 142 horsepower and 160 lbs of torque which pales in comparison to what type of horsepower cars make nowadays. The turbo was a Garrett AI research turbocharger that supplied 7.5 lbs of boost at 6000 RPMs. Owners back then reported very little lag… and get this - the 0 to 60 times where in the 8-9 second range. Holy crap that was slow! But back in the day it was considered a peppy little car and with a 5-speed transmission it was actually fun to drive. I know this because I owned one. Alright, alright you can stop laughing. I’m

Anyway like I was saying they were sort of exciting to drive. Now that I think of it I have not seen one of these cars on the road in what seems like forever.

FIXED PRICE PROGRAMS AVAILABLE! Visit us online at philspropane.com

Have you seen any? Maybe I’ll find one and buy it just for old times sake and cruise it around and get laughed at or maybe not. We shall see. I will be doing a bunch of different trips down memory lane with cars and experiences to share with you guys within these pages. If there is anything you would like to hear about Let us know and I will get it done. Until next time folks. See ya. And enjoy your day.

JIM WEICHERDING What is it about trucks that make some of us get so pumped up? Personally, I’d rather drive a pick up truck everywhere and do it every day of the week, but that’s just me I guess.

nally Painted Chevy orange, black interior with 38” Sandblaster tires and chrome American racing rims. Dual exhaust was straight pipes and Cherry Bomb mufflers bolted up tightly behind a set of flat black Hooker headers. I eventually painted the truck black on black and then painted everything else the color black too. Even the windows were tinted with two layers of five percent 3M black film. You could barely see through them driving at night but they sure did look cool. Looks first, function second.

Or is it? The state of Rhode Island has more pick up truck owners per capita than any other state in the USA. Seems like a lot of people in the state of Rhode Island love trucks. I’ve owned pick up trucks since I purchased my first one back in the day long ago. I was twenty-years old when I purchased a late sixties Chevy pickup. This beast came equipped with a 4x4 package, and I added a lift kit with monster truck tires that I purchased from Western Auto located at the Slatersville Plaza, North Smithfield, Rhode Island a very long time ago. How many of you remember buying automotive parts, supplies and tires from Western Auto Stores? I sure do. They gave you credit and you could pretty much buy whatever you wanted, when you wanted, as long as you paid your monthly bill on time. This sixties beast of a pick up truck also featured a badass 396 Chevy big block engine under the hood with a Muncie 4-speed transmission. Origi-

The only chrome on this truck was the set of American racing wheels. I drove this truck to classic auto shows, cruise nights and truck events during the spring, summer and fall seasons and then drove it through three feet of snow during the winter months. It was an every season, every day driver, but it was awesome just the same. Not a lot of people driving their sixties pickup trucks as daily drivers anymore but that’s because it’s no longer the seventies anymore. We have newer pick up trucks that we use as daily drivers and leave our older trucks tucked away in the garage until spring rolls around again. And that season is approaching fast. So, as they say on t-shirts printed back in the sixties and seventies, “Keep On Truckin’!” CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

A WATSON’S STREETWORKS EXCLUSIVE

NEW C4 RELAY PACK The compact size of this new relay pack from Watson StreetWorks lets you clean up your wiring at a price that makes sense. 4 on board 20 amp double throw relays are each fed separately from your fuse panel or the ground side of a circuit. The double throw action means you can power 2 different circuits independently if needed. The relays are grouped into two pairs of two giving you even greater flexibility. Each relay can be triggered by a hot or ground input. No need to run heavy gauge, high amp wires (that’s what your fuse panel is for.) Instructions included show basic wiring and several common relay combo circuits. Designed and built in the USA.

57 FUNERALS

Mini-Series By JIM WEICHERDING

Randolph hops up into his big Chevy Silverado pick up truck and after buckling his seatbelt, turns the ignition key. The loud exhaust roars out across the entire neighborhood but he knows it bothers the slime balls that are continuously moving into the neighborhood and pushing honest, hard working families out and away from the rising crime and increased dangerous situation. His next door neighbor and his family recently moved away because the environment is getting worse for the kids and teens still living there. Randolph doesn’t like it one bit. He backs his big Chevy truck down the driveway

game, I’m in!” Randolph jumps back up into his lifted Chevy truck and lays on the gas pedal. The loud dual exhaust system can be heard blocks away. Randolph puts the shifter in reverse and presses down on the gas pedal. The trucks rear tires begin to spin and sends smoke out into the street covering both vehicles stopped at the end of his driveway. The drivers and passengers begin to cough and can hardly see a thing around them. Once the smoke clears, the closest vehicle driver to Randolph’s driveway can start to see again and sees the tailgate and chrome rear bumper of the big Chevy Truck inches from his face in the drivers window. “Damn, Man!” The driver immediately backs up his car and watches as Randolph backs his Chevy Truck out onto the street between his vehicle and his punk buddy’s vehicle. “You are crazy fool!” Yells, one of the punks from inside his vehicle at Randolph pulling away and headed down his street towards to nearest hardware store.

She’s Back! : The 2015 Z28

Both vehicles start to follow him. Randolph keeps his eyes on the road in front of him and also on the rear view mirror watching what the drug dealing punks will do next. He eventually arrives towards the street when two of the punks cars pull up behind him before he at the hardware store and is greeted in the parking lot by a couple of his old Lauryn “Hotwheels” Pontiac-Vernancio was produced, but it also brought with it a whole new four wheel anti-lock disc brakes and there are makes it onto the street. neighborhood friends walking into the local diner in the same plaza.

CRUISIN’ 2019 JIM WEICHERDING

I am not sure what the weather across New England looks like out your window while you are reading this article but right now while I’m writing this article it’s absolutely gorgeous outside. It’s February 21st, 2019, and it’s in the fifties with plenty of sunshine and blue skies. We didn’t have much to be happy about last winter with record cold and tons of snow, but not this year. This year to date, we have had less than 14 inches of snowfall recorded in the city of Providence, Rhode Island. I’ll take it. Might be a foot of snow outside your window right now but I’m hoping that’s not the case. Melting snow, salt and sand wreaks havoc on your vehicle undercarriage and that means rust. We don’t like rust, do we? I took my truck out to meetings today in the state of Connecticut and it was beautiful. I saw a lot of Harley Davidson’s and classic cars and trucks out taking advantage of the nice weather in the month of February too. Some real nice motorcycles and some real nice rides Cruisin’ down the backroads and roadways in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts on February 21st? Never even heard of that before today and I saw it for myself. Spring Fever has struck early this year and every indication so far shows me that there are a lot of diehard enthusiasts out there that cannot wait to go Cruisin’ across New England as long as the weather is good enough to do that with their cherished rides. I’m all for it myself. We can start Cruisin’ every February and the area car shows and cruise nights can begin in early March for all I care. I’m there. I’m sure many of you would do the same exact thing if you could. Well, let’s see what the month of March brings us and maybe we can go Cruisin’ sooner than usual this spring. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Since our last update, the body has been through final primer, a final block and put into paint! After many coats that gorgeous Mopar Blue was cleared! Then the hard work of sanding and buffing began, with a car of this size the process can take several days in a row, but it is worth it when you see that final shine, free of all orange peel!!! Plymouth painted the under body, engine bay and trunk that same body color and so did we! The paint looks amazing!!! Next we started on the install of the upgraded Hotchkis suspension; with a little modifying the system is installed and looking good. Next we moved onto the upgraded Wilwood disc brake kit for the front! It is fully installed and looking great! The rear end will be back soon from its rebuild and upgraded to 3.73 gears with tru track posi, at which time we will fit the rear Wilwood disc upgrade and have this Roadrunner back to rolling! Behind the scenes we are busy researching parts and available upgrades, this Mopar is going to be the envy of all that see it!

History of New England Dragway Drag racing made its New England debut at the old Newington Airport in 1953. Although the tenure of organized racing was short lived at the Newington location, it did set the wheels in motion for locations all over New England. None of these were more important to the history of New England Dragway than Sanford, Maine. Members of the NEHRC (New England Hot Rod Council) initiated racing at Sanford Airport in July of 1955. For ten years some of the greatest names in drag racing helped shape the legendary facility. As the mid-sixties approached, members of the NEHRC knew they needed to find a permanent home. They began searching for land suitable enough to construct a permanent drag strip. In 1963 Council members began talking with local realtors in the seacoast region of New Hampshire. They wanted a piece of land that was about a mile long. “When we told realtors about our requirements, they laughed and said good luck,” explained New England

na. We took a look at the land and told him to go for it,” said Bernier. The location was ideal. It was relatively close to Boston and other major population centers of eastern New England. Route 27, the road passing along the front of New England Dragway was easily accessed off Route 95. That meant an easy haul for most of the former NEHRC members and racers. It also provided a significant spectator base to draw upon. Both towns (Epping and Brentwood) were receptive to the prospect of a major tourist attraction. Thousands of yards of dirt were moved as heavy equipment thrashed away to get the track ready for a September opening in 1966. While crews were taking care of the roads and track surface, shareholders were wheeling and dealing to find what it would take to make opening day a success. Stockholders logged countless man-hours dismantling used bleachers, hauling them to Epping and reassembling them. Crews built a tower, installed fencing and applied more than a few gallons of paint. It turned out to be a tremendous effort. On September 11, 1966, New England Dragway was ready to open the gates for the first race. Today, New England Dragway, still owned by many of the racers who built it along with a new crop of shareholders, is the only 1/4 mile drag strip in New England. It is open four days a week from the beginning of April through the end of October featuring everything from grudge racing to world class events like the its annual NHRA New England Nationals.

Dragway, Inc., Treasurer Ed Bernier. One realtor didn’t laugh, though and took the folks from New Hampshire seriously. Within a few weeks real estate agent Ben D’Agostino called with some good news. ”D’Agostino found some land that would meet our needs. But, he had to do some work because it consisted of two separate parcels owned by different people, in two abutting towns. One piece was owned by the Trefetherens and the other by a guy who lived on an island off the coast of South Caroli-

Following it’s credo, “Built by racers for racers,” New England Dragway continues improving Source: nedragway.com its facility in order to keep pace with a new generation of racers who bring faster and more complex machines to race at its legendary quarter mile. New grandstands have replaced many of the old bleachers purchased used from a Massachusetts university. It’s old PA system gave way to a state of the art sound system featuring Bose acoustics. In 2010 the concrete pad was extended from 745 feet to 1320 feet followed by a specialized finishing process to make the entire quarter mile smooth and fast. Net result?

Street Race Stories MIKE GALLO

have the surgeon flag the race. Both cars were pulled up to the line evenly.

Another Episode

On this particular night ghost was at home just hanging out minding his own business when his phone rang. On the other end was one of his friends named “ the surgeon” he seemed frantic and told ghost that a new Street racer by the name of “the lawyer” was cleaning up on the street in our local town and beating some of the local Mustangs. The surgeon knew that if anybody was going to beat this lawyer character it was going to be ghost. Ghost decided he would give it a shot so he hopped in his car and headed to where everybody was hanging out. Upon arrival there were a few of the normal Mustang guys that we’re looking pretty upset because of being beat by the lawyers convertible Cutlass Supreme. Ghost got out of the car and asked the guys what was going on? The surgeon said that this lawyer guy is saying he eats stang’s for breakfast. Ghost couldn’t help himself and let out a laugh.

The surgeon asked both racers if they were ready. The racers both nodded their heads as they were all set to go. The surgeon raised his arms and drop them Quik and both cars were off. Each cars spun the tires but ghosts supercharged small block was pulling on the lawyers naturally aspirated car and within 300 feet it was apparent that the naturally aspirated motor was no challenge for ghosts car as he was left staring at disappearing tail lights. A crowd had formed at the finish line and watched ghost put bus lengths on the lawyers cutlass. Everybody jumped in their cars to go back to the meeting spot. Once everybody was back there they noticed the lawyer was nowhere to be found. I guess he got his feelings hurt. Oh well. Another win for ghost . This is another episode of street race stories fact or fiction you figure it out.

The Road of Opportunity Lies Ahead of YOU!

Where is this guy ghost said? The surgeon pointed to the far corner of the parking lot. Ghost walked over to the lawyer and asked him if he wanted to race? The lawyer replied do you want to get beat? Hmmmmmm said ghost…….well I don’t think that car your driving can do that laughing. Well let’s go find out said the lawyer in a cocky tone. Ghost asked how about a small wager? The lawyer replied I don’t wanna take your money kid. Ghost replied ok then….lets go do this then. The lawyer agreed and jumped in his car to head to the spot. Ghost fired up his car and pulled out with a crowd of followers to watch this go down. Upon arriving at the spot they agreed to

“Cross Your Heart

JIM WEICHERDING It was February.

We all know what happens in the month of February. Valentine’s Day happens on February, 14th. Happens every single year. This year something else happened during the month of February. It was “Cross Your Heart Month”. This annual campaign slogan was coined by this writer and award-winning Child Safety Cartoonist and Public Safety Specialist. “Cross Your Heart Month” is a brand new car seat, Boost Up! and Buckle Up! campaign created to help remind kids and families to use proper vehicle restraints when driving and riding in vehicles during the month of February. February was once National Child Passenger Safety Month annually for years but has since been dropped due to the time of year the month of February falls into. Can’t host a lot of car seat check ups in February across the northern states of America. Unless you want everybody participating with this campaign to potentially get frostbite at outdoor car seat check ups or car seat clinics. So now, National Child Passenger Safety Month is the month of September each year. A little more outdoor friendly time of year for these very important life saving check ups and clinics hosted across the USA. That leaves the month of February wide open again for a safety themed campaign just like “Cross Your Heart Month.” The actual catch phrase is, “Cross Your Heart With Your Seatbelt, Somebody Loves You.” I abbreviated it so it becomes “Cross Your Heart Month” but the catch phrase remains the same on promotional educational and awareness materials and products. The theme is also perfect for the month of February because Valentine’s Day falls in the middle of the month and campaign efforts can reflect upon this holiday as a creative avenue to try and prevent traffic related injuries and potentially save lives at the same time. February also starts the tradition of racing and car show events across the USA and Buckleupallofus Child Passenger Safety Mascot is a Nationally Recognized Cartoon Character Dinosaur with a big friendly smile and a seatbelt for a tail. Bucky, most of the Kids call him, appears at, and showcases at, more than one hundred classic auto shows, cruise nights, race track and drag racing events across New England and New York State starting in the month of March and continues through the end of October every year. Bucky has a strong growing fan base and is extremely popular with event promoters, hosts, kids, teens, adults, police officers and first responders in numerous states up and down the I-95 corridor from Maine to Florida. Bucky and his related (take home) print items and publications are especially popular at these kid and family events and venues that also includes parades. So, as a friendly reminder, remember, “Cross Your Heart With Your Seatbelt, Somebody Loves You.” Not just in the month of February every year like last month, or once in awhile. Buckle Up! every time. Have a safe and fun Cruisin’ Season 2019. 44| Motorhead Magazine - March 2019

Etch keeps his GTO at a steady rate of speed, just over the posted speed limit, often glancing behind him to see if anyone is going to pursue him. Nobody is behind him and nothing is in front of him but open road. Etch starts to feel a little uneasy about this situation and starts to look all around him with his head turning quickly from one side to the other and behind him, and in front of him, hoping to see something happening. It’s just him and his GTO cruising down the highway all alone. “This is real strange,” he said, under his breath. “Why isn’t anybody chasing me?” The GTO continues to travel down the highway just above the speed limit. “I don’t like this one bit,” said, Etch. “What did they do? Did they give up trying to catch me?” He keeps a steady pace traveling along the highway and doesn’t see anything out of the ordinary what-so-ever. It’s leaving Etch with a weird feeling

that something dreadful is just around the next bend in the road. He keeps glancing back into his rear view mirror and then into his side view mirrors and sees absolutely nothing behind him that would lead him to think that he is still being pursued by law enforcement or any other federal agency for that matter. “Where in the hell is everybody? Why aren’t they still chasing after me? They all give up? Headed back to that Dunkin Donuts for more power circles, coffee and hot chocolates? This makes no sense to me.” Etch keeps cruising in his muscle car GTO and keeps his speed limit about five to ten miles above the posted speed limit. “So, what in the hell am I doing now? Just above the posted speed limit when half the state was after my ass a little while ago? I’m just as bad as they are right now. Not like nobody is going to notice an illegal 1969 Pontiac GTO traveling down this freeway all of a sudden.

Rhode Island’s Only

Las Vegas Style Cabaret

It’s all over the news!” Etch knows something is not right with this scenario and pulls over to the side of the highway. “No traffic in either direction. Nothing flying over my head. And nothing positioned on either side of me.” Etch proceeds onto the highway and gradually begins to push the GTO harder and harder as if acting in desperation. The Pontiac GTO is now redlined with nothing but open highway in front of it. Etch sees an exit ramp sign reading exit next two miles. He plans on taking that exit and removing himself from his current situation and hopefully try and make his way back home or to some place he can access sanctuary from the law.

Draggin’ The Line JIM WEICHERDING Guess what folks? It’s almost Drag Racing season here in New England, but by the time that you read this article, the Drag Racing season has already started in the southern states of the USA. Florida and California for example.

ride is fast? Prove it on the dragway or the race track. There aren’t any kids and families driving and riding on dragways and race tracks. So please remember that when somebody challenges you to a race, take it off the street

and head to your local dragway or race track and prove who has the fastest ride. Have a safe and happy 2019 Drag Racing Season and keep the gas pedal matted to the floorboard at all times during those venues and events.

I love everything drag racing but I especially love nostalgia drag racing events. Watching all of those early years classic cars and trucks enter the staging lanes and drag race down the drag strip like it is the only thing in life for that driver that really matters in those moments. Adrenaline pumping through their veins while the fuel is pumping through what we hope are real carburetors and not fuel injection set ups. But hey, that’s their prerogative, correct? As long as it looks great and goes real fast down the dragway that’s okay in my book. Oh yeah, and sounds mean as thunder too. Gotta be loud and proud. Open headers are the best choice as far as I’m concerned when it comes to nostalgia drag racing at area dragways. “Drag race it on the track, not on the street!” We want drag racing to be a monitored, regulated and safe way to race our cars and trucks. The street is no place to be drag racing. Think your CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

BIG RED ‘69 CAMARO MIKE GALLO What’s going on guys and gals? I wanted to share this car with you as I find it absolutely awesome. The car I’m talking about is called Big Red and it’s a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro that was built to road race and do top speed. This car is owned by RJ Gottlieb and has been through many different combinations throughout it’s life. The latest combination sports a pro charged 598 cubic inch hi-compression motor that puts out 2000 horsepower and runs on methanol with no electronic engine management whatsoever. ‘ This insane amount of power has netted this car a blistering 266 mile per hour at top speed. This car has set many records and has also climbed Pikes Peak. It also was in the Silver State Classic where it became the record holder with an average speed of 198 miles per hour. In 2016 the car suffered a catastrophic fire because of a loose fitting and basically burned the car to the ground. But that did not stop RJ and his crew as they rebuilt the car back to its former glory as you can see by these pictures. This car

was originally meant to be a road race car and it has beat out Ferraris, Lamborghinis and just about every other type of car. It also won the LA Carrera Classic and by doing so it got itself a ban from the race for actually being too quick. I guess it hurt a lot of supercar owners’ feelings. Now you got to love that! This car has a big following as it should. I know I’m definitely a fan of it. CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

12 VOLT NEWS Immobilizer Bypass Modules & Interface Modules for Remote Start

GEORGE ARAKELIAN, JR.

install without them.

Beginning in around 1996-98 some cars began coming with anti-theft systems which prevented the car from starting unless the right key was in the ignition. In the last few years most (but not all) vehicles have these anti-theft systems. Obviously, when you install a remote start on these vehicles, the car isn’t going to start unless you trick the car into thinking it “sees” the right key in the ignition or the right “electronic code” in its circuitry. This is done with devices called immobilizer bypass modules, transponder bypass kits, or passlock interface modules. These specialized parts and their installation are required for the remote start to work in these vehicles though now some remote starts are coming with the modules included with the remote start. Depending on the device, immobilizer bypass modules & interface modules range in price from $49.99 to around $160 installed. When we quote you a remote start price installed we normally include the cost of the interface module if one is needed.

There are many different types of remote start interface parts. Each car manufacturer requires different anti-theft software depending on the vehicle’s year and model. Bypass modules now available are programmable through the module manufacturer’s website for the latest software for the particular vehicle. As an example, a 2010 Chevy Impala takes different software or even a different interface module than a 2015 Silverado. Sometimes one module can cover many different makes and vehicles. Other times different interface modules are necessary. We stock the different interface modules for most vehicles so you can have your remote start installed today, so you don’t have to wait! We carry the latest interface modules from the three biggest manufacturers: Fortin, iDatalink, & DEI XpressKit. We have what it takes to install a Remote Start for you today!

HOW IMPORTANT IS INSTALLATION: When you are shopping for remote starts and car alarms, installation is critical. On today’s computerized vehicles it takes exact technical information, proper interface modules programmed with the correct software and experience and skill to know what to do. Each make, model and year can be different. When you purchase a vehicle security system or remote start from us, you are getting the benefit of our 30+ years of technical expertise. Since all shops are not the same, wouldn’t you rather shop and be serviced by the best? Check with A Custom Car Stereo Center for your Remote Starter needs.

Direct any questions or future article topics to: Motorhead Magazine 12 Volt News c/o A Custom Car Stereo Center, 1174 Atwood Avenue Johnston, RI 02919 (401) 946-0010 ACustomCar@Verizon.net

However, we don’t always know whether your car needs one or which module it needs without checking the vehicle or tech notes. Sometimes the vehicle may have to be inspected by us at our store at the time you want to make your purchase. Sometimes two car keys may be required to program these devices during remote start installation. This is particularly true with some Ford vehicles. Check with us on your vehicle’s requirements. If two keys are required, we can’t proceed with the CALL 401-965-9012 TO ADVERTISE

Ferrari Takes Two Wins in Season Opener Ferrari teams won two of the three classes in the opening event of the 2019 Blancpain GT World Challenge America at Circuit of The Americas in early March.

“I had a really good car to drive, and the team did the best pit stop ever,” Lu said. “My coach (Segal) is trying make me a better driver. This is the best weekend I can ever hope for.”

PRO. Miguel Molina and Toni Vilander combined to finish fourth in the over-

Lu debuted at Circuit of The Americas last year, finishing third with Segal in the opener before winning the Sunday finale. “I can’t say enough about these TR3 Racing guys,” Segal said. “Everything came together pretty late, but we knew what we had, and it showed. The car was fantastic, but I have to say that the star of the day was Wei. Last year he raised some eyebrows, but he’s made an amazing transformation over the winter to get even better. Today, we were in the pro race. I can’t ask for a better co-driver. Matt Plumb and Alfred Caiola finished eighth in the class in the No. 99 One11 Competition Ferrari 488 GT3, with the team expanding from Ferrari Challenge to enter Blancpain GT America with a two-car effort. AM. Ferraris swept the podium in the Am class with a strong performance from drivers competing for three different Ferrari squads.

all standings, co-driving the No. 61 R. Ferri Motorsport Ferrari 488 GT3. Molina was involved in a heated battle early in the race. After falling to fourth on the start after qualifying third, he managed to regain the position on lap 12. Molina pitted with the lead on the 17th lap. Vilander returned to

2018 Blancpain GT World Challenge champions Caesar Bacarella and Martin Fuentes opened the defense of their title with a dominant victory in the No. 7 Squadra Corsa Garage Italia Ferrari 488 GT3. The victory for the former Ferrari Challenge racers continued their impressive string of results in their Ferrari 488 GT3 dating back to last season’s championship. “I love Austin, and we love this track,” Fuentes. “We always come here to test. Caesar drove amazing. He drove aggressive and gave me the car in P1. I just kept it there.” “We’re super-excited to come back here so strong, because we love this track,” Bacarella said. Pierre Mulacek and Anthony Lazzaro placed second in the No. 82 Risi Competizione Ferrari 488 GT3, followed by Christopher Cagnazzi and Brian Kaminskey in the No. 19 One11 Competition Ferrari 488 GT3. The No. 8 Vital Speed Motorsports with the father-son combination of Ferrari Challenge graduates Rich and Trevor Baek finished fifth.

the race in fourth, and fought for a spot on the podium all the way to the finish line but came up less than a second short. PRO-AM. Wei Lu continued to impress at COTA as the former Ferrari Challenge racer once again delivered a huge performance at the Texas track. After starting from second on the Pro-Am grid, Lu took the class lead on the opening lap and cruised to a dominant victory with Jeff Segal in the no. 31 TR3 Racing Ferrari 488 GT3. Segal will start on the class pole for Sunday’s race.

Red flag. The one-hour, 30-minute race was red-flagged for 50 minutes on the fourth lap due to an incident that required barrier repairs. However, race officials stopped the clock so that competitors had another one-hour, 17-minutes remaining when the incident was cleared. The opening weekend of the season concluded with Race 2 on Sunday at 2 p.m. CT. Ferraris will return to action at the next round of the Blancpain GT America series at Virginia International Raceway on the 26-28 of April. Article and photo source: races.ferrari.com
