ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (September 24, 2011) - Steve Forrer, of Fox Point, Wis., picked up his second straight C Sports Racing title and his fourth SCCA National Championship with a dominating run at the Runoffs at Road America on Saturday afternoon. Jacek Mucha, of Laval, Quebec, Canada, was second and Jim Downing, of Atlanta, was third.
Running in tandem with the D Sports Racing class, Forrer started from the Gumout Pole Position in the No. 84 K Hill Motorsports/Hoosier/Forrer Supply Ralt RT-41 Toyota and was never really challenged throughout the 13-lap race. In fact, despite starting nearly half a lap behind the D Sports field, Forrer made his way into the top five overall positions by the checkered flag. He gained most of his ground through the middle stages of the race with blistering lap times, including the Hawk Hot Lap at 2:02.782 (117.281 mph) on Lap 5.
He went on to win by 23.301 seconds over Mucha. In addition to winning the 2010 C Sports Racing National Championship, Forrer also scored back-to-back Formula Atlantic National Championships in 1996 and 1997.
"It was a great race today," Forrer said. "It was fun. The start is always a challenge. We were side-by-side coming into [turn] one, so that was good. I just stayed steady most of the race and tried to do what I did in qualifying and stay out of trouble. I came up on the Ds and, realistically, last year we were with the S2000s and it's such a speed difference. With the Ds, we were really close and it was clean driving. It was good with that class."
Finishing second for the sixth time in C Sports Racing at the SCCA National Championship Runoffs was Mucha in the No. 07 Phoenix-Innotech JMS 016 Mazda. Mucha came up one position shy in his bid to win the SCCA Super Sweep, but adds a 2011 silver medal to his collection alongside CSR runner-up performances in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2007 and 2009.
"It started with a small stumble of my engine on the start," Mucha said. "That's why I started in the second position and basically since then, for some time I kept the pace and we were the same distance. As usual when I have to start lapping the D Sports, it never works for me. I caught some of them just before The Carousel and it took me quite a while to pass them and then another two cars in [turn] 14, so I lost contact and basically that was it. After that, I just kept pace so nobody would get me from behind and I didn't see anybody. I didn't see anybody in the front and I didn't see anybody in the back."
Downing provided the highlight of the race with a spectacular pass in Road America's ultra-fast kink [turn 11] on the penultimate lap to take third from Jason Miller, of Sheboygan Falls, Wis. The four-position improvement from his seventh-place starting spot gave Downing the Sunoco Hard Charger Award, and it was Downing's second bronze medal at the Runoffs. The third-place result was his first since 2008 in C Sports Racing and is the latest chapter in a storied motorsports career.
"I was actually surprised I caught him," said Downing of his pass on Miller. "His tires must have been giving up near the end there, because I was catching him in The Carousel. He may have missed a gear going into it or he may have just let up and let me by. I don't know. It was pretty tight. He probably didn't do that. He may have had a glitch, but I was catching him up there and I think it was mostly just grip, the tires getting tired and fortunately I was on Hoosiers, which seemed to be better this weekend.
"We've worked hard all year. We're the only Rotary in the group, so we came to June Sprints to see if we wouldn't embarrass ourselves at the Runoffs. We seemed to be a little quicker than we were last year, so we came. Wednesday we were fifth, which was nice, so we worked on our rain setup on Thursday and then both Brian and James French went right out and knocked me back to seventh. I was a little surprised I caught them at the end. They're a couple of tough guys and know the track far better than I do. The car may have been getting a little tired there too, because it was three or four laps from the end when I managed to get by there."
A spin by Miller in the final turn on the final lap while taking one last shot at Downing allowed James French, of Sheboygan, Wis., to take fourth in the No. 44 Swift 014 Toyota. Brian French, also of Sheboygan, finished fifth in the No. 45 Motorsports Enterprises LTD Ralt RT-41 Toyota and Miller wound up sixth in the No. 8 Kohler/Millenium/Goodyear WynnFurst Kohler.

The original Stig, Tom started racing in 1990 as ‘Stig White Racing’ using
the stage name given him by his band-mates in a college rock band, only to
have some BBC blokes poach the brand over a decade later.
But who’s bitter now, eh? This Stig is part of K-Hill Motorsports!
Tom’s driving career spans 20 years with wins in Showroom Stock, Improved Touring, Formula Ford, Formula 1000/FB, and now Formula 2000/FC, earning multiple championships, lap records, and awards along the way in each class. Blah, blah, blah – he’s still trying to figure out how to get it right ...
And thanks to K-Hill Motorsports, Tom is ‘getting it right’ more often now than ever before in his driving career.
“I have great memories of getting to know Kris and his father Joe back in the early 1990’s, talking racing and enjoying fellowship while queued up in the long lines of competitors waiting to get into Summit Point early to find precious paddock space,” Tom recalls. “I had such admiration for Kris and Joe and their results in our early careers, and I have taken great pride in watching K-Hill Motorsports grow into the amazing team it is today. Kris has assembled a team in the shop and engineers at the track that are truly first-class, and the proof is in the significant results they have achieved in every class and series they have tackled.”
“I feel privileged to work with Kris and the entire team at K-Hill – a huge ‘thank you’ to each and every one in the K-Hill organization,” Tom added. “And a special thank-you to Gibby, a gracious man with tremendous insight and advice – the time he spent with me at a recent National will pay big dividends going forward.”
Tom will continue to race in FC/F2000 with K-Hill at select events in 2012, and his dream is to garner the funds needed to add the ultimate jewel to his career by taking K-Hill back to the top step of the podium in FC/F2000 at the SCCA RunOffs and in select pro F2000 Championship Series events.
