Alliance Autosport has Incredible September RunAlliance Autosport
Alliance Autosport had a very busy month of September, running nine races at three tracks, including nine straight days at two tracks in three different cars.
The month started out very strong, as Scott Rettich won all four SCCA Pro Racing Spec Racer Ford and Formula Enterprises races at Brainerd International Raceway. Alliance Autosport then had just two weeks to prepare for two SCCA Pro Racing Formula Enterprises races, a Grand-Am Rolex GT race, and the SCCA National Championship Runoffs Spec Racer Ford and Formula Enterprises races.
Mid-Ohio started off great. with Rettich and first time Grand-Am driver and fellow Formula Enterprises competitor Matt Schneider having a very strong run in the Grand-Am Rolex GT race. The duo ran as high as eighth and spent much of the race inside the top-10, before finishing 12th in a highly competitive 20 car field. The next day, Rettich took the checkered flag in both Rounds Seven and Eight of the SCCA Pro Racing Formula Enterprises series.
The team quickly packed up and drove all night from Mid-Ohio to Road America arriving just in time to unload and prepare for SCCA National Championship Runoffs qualifying later that day. With a huge amount of success in the past at Road America, the Alliance Autosport crew was able to give Rettich a great set up as he led all four qualifying sessions in Formula Enterprises. Starting from the pole, Rettich fell to second for the first few laps before regaining the lead and slowly pulling a gap on second place, winning his second straight SCCA Formula Enterprises National Championship and the SCCA Super Sweep. He also had a solid run in Spec Racer Ford, leading multiple laps and finishing second.
“Scott and the crews’ performance at Brainerd was very impressive,” stated Alliance Autosport Team Manager Suren Tchobanian. “Mid-Ohio brought on some additional challenges running our Formula Enterprises car with the Rolex Series Porsche. Scott and Matt kept very busy jumping from their formula cars back to the Porsche, but they both drove very well. I think this was the first time we finished a race and had to have the cars on track five hundred miles away by noon the next day. We continued our momentum by running quick right off of the trailer, taking the Formula Enterprises pole the first time we were on track. Scott drove a great race in both National Championships. Our whole crew did an awesome job as the cars ran flawlessly. I am very proud of the entire Alliance Autosport team!”
