2019 SEBRING Super Tour | Race 1 | SCCA Spec Miata

Added by AutomotiveUploads
SEBRING, Florida (January 12, 2019) – The 2019 SCCA Hoosier Super Tour season got underway with spirited driving on Saturday at Sebring International Raceway, where seven race groups ran 29 races around the famed 17-turn, 3.74-mile race track hosted by Central Florida Region.

Incidents in both of the morning contests resulted in race lengths shrunk from the posted 25 minutes to just 20-minute sprints after lunch.

For the Spec Miata field, that may have been a good thing, as Preston Pardus put on a show in the No. 42 Danus Utilities/East Street Racing/5x Racing Mazda Miata. Leading from pole, the 2017 National Champion was chased by Jim Drago and Elivan Goulart, both former champs themselves.

Even with the talent behind him, Pardus kept the point and between a length and three lengths throughout the eight-lap race.

“It was a pretty fun race,” Pardus said. “I had Jim and Elivan and luckily it was a pretty clean race for me. They started racing behind me for second a few laps into it, and I was able to make a little gap there at the end.”

Though Goulart tried to work with Drago to challenge Pardus, it was clear with a lap to go that they had nothing for the hot shoe. Instead, Goulart peeled off going into Sebring’s tight final corner and drove to the inside. That proved the right move, as Goulart was able to sneak into second place at the stripe by just 0.153-second.
