Jeff's Viewpoint
 

 Mosport Park, August 18th 2002 



 
 

Once again Mosport  provided the usual mixture of weather uncertainty and lots of
"bump and grind" competition. Friday saw the traditional downpours during practice
leaving Jeff to get used to the new ride with his superb wet driving ability.  Jeff had
nothing but praise for his involvement with Team Seikel , one of the world's leading
        GT teams. "This is truly a first class deal" Jeff explained, saying nothing was
overlooked in the preparation of the car or in the checks between test runs.  "I feel
       I have one of my best chances for a podium finish this weekend with Seikel, things are
really looking good!"

   The fastest  qualifying time  for Seikel was turned by co- driver Hugh Plumb as lack of
  seat time for Jeff did not allow him to fine tune himself to the car. With the car being
     qualified  6th in class, the team was ready to go.  Jeff ran the middle shift of the three
   flawlessly, turning comparable times to the  two regular drivers, Tony Burgess and
     Hugh Plumb. Jeff handed the Porsche over to Tony  with a second position podium in
   sight . Unfortunately  an altercation with  a Team Cadillac LMP900 on lap 93 left Tony
     doing the   "guardrail   Pirro-ette"  between turns 1 & 2.  Fortunately , only the car  and
 the team's hopes for a podium were shattered, though a 4th in class was still theirs.
With all of the structural repairs and painting of  the car be performed by the best at
   PFAFF Autoworks  in Newmarket, Ontario Canada the  Seikel Porsche GT3R will be
headed for  victory lane in the very near future!
