Kestrel Racing headed to Fayetteville this weekend to get dirty. Taking a short break from autocrossing Jeff Eng and Mike Jones headed to Fayetteville Motorsports Park for the Tarheel Sports Car Club rallycross. This was the first event for the ’00 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS which was recently converted from autocross duty to rallycross.
This was Jeff’s second rallycross event in 12 years and Mike Jones first rallycross event. Both competitors were a bit anxious not having driven in the dirt in a long time, but those feelings were quickly swept away once they started their runs.
The weather and surface conditions started out perfect for this event and the team did very well placing 1st and 2nd in SO4 class out of 8 drivers. In the overall standings Mike placed 2nd and Jeff placed 6th out of 23 drivers.
