WMRRA Round 2 Results: Cogs scores 2nd; Tamra 8th!

May 13, 2009 · Category: Seattle Race Reports

Saturday night was spent trying to iron out some significant (albeit not make-or-break) issues with Tamra’s bike.  The hideous “sound of doom” emanating from her motor turned out only to be a noisy clutch basket.  Her front brakes have always been a little suspect despite numerous attempts to improve them. The “nick-of-time” arrival and install of some new brake shoes fixed the problem right up.  Tamra reported some balky shifting after Round 1, so a new linkage was fabbed to smooth the shifting action out.

 The weather was excellent and Cogs rode solidly, benefitting from (#500) Tom Deem’s  mechanical issues and a big Turn 3 bobble from (#99) Joel Crabtree.  Goes to show that all it takes is one mistake to cost you a position on the podium in this competitive class!  Cogs also sliced through the pack and managed to keep several 500’s behind him which is a hoot!

 Vintage racing elder statesman #771 Mick Hart took the wire-to-wire wins and was living in the 1:58’s all day.  Mick had a huge wreck in Canada a couple of years ago that resulted in a broken back, among other injuries; it was great to see him return in such a fashion. 

 Tamra was the real star of the show finishing as high as 6th in the first heat, edging out verterans Don Marr and grandaddy-of-’em-all Tim Fowler.  She photo-finished 9th just behind Don and Tim in the second heat for an overall place of 8th out of a field of 12.  For Tamra, keeping up with such wily vets as Marr and Fowler is invaluable experience and quite an achievement.  She has definitely earned a new level of respect! Tamra reported great improvement in the mechanical aspects of the bike that Cogs addressed the night before: tighter, smoother shifting with a better feel, improved braking power, no scary engine noise and no leaky forks.  4-for-4 in the repair department!

 Cogs’s best lap of the day was 2:00.189 while Tamra notched a personal best of 2:10.681, down a whole 4 seconds from last round–way to go! She has gotten to the 2:10 mark in half as many races as Mr. Collins, so Cogs look out–she’s gunning for ya!

 Next round marks the triumphant return of the Washington Motorcycle Road Racing Association to Spokane County Motorsports Park–tune in Memorial Day Weekend for more exciting results!
