GPNY Mt.Kisco, NY Ironman Series Results
Racing NewsSunday, August 7th, Grand Prix NY held its last round of Ironman races on its Supertrack configuration.

This night’s racing format had an early “Novice” race and a late “Pro” race. Each event started out with a 10 minute qualifier followed by a 60 minute race. During the race each competitor had to make four 5 second stops – although not on the first or last lap.

First up this evening was the novice race and there were a number of league regulars piloting the 9hp LMP1 class karts. There were 7 starters in the LMP1 karts and another 12 in the GTO (6.5hp) karts. League Veterans Rauert Peters and Dimi Vagios battled for pole with Peters taking the top spot by two and half tenths over Vagios. The second row had two more league vets, Tom Caspar and Dave Harmon, both 7 tenths off of pole. Back in the GTO ranks, Gene Tyler qualified the highest with Adam Germain second. At the drop of the green, Peters held off Vagios until the fast uphill left hander – Vagios slipped up and Caspar got into him spinning both out. Harmon was able to slip by into second while Adrian Salageneau moved up to third. Vagios would eventually get back past Harmon during pit stops to take second place back while Peters would lead from flag to flag to take the win. Caspar battled to get back to a podium finish, but an errant run into the wrong pit lane for one of his mandatory stops would rob him of the podium. In GTO, third place starter Robert Meginnis was able to upset the top two qualifiers to take his first Ironman victory. Second and third were Tyler and Germain respectively.

The next event was qualifying for the Pro race and while there were only 13 racers in this event, there were two weight classes – 190 lb and 220lb. At the end of qualifying, Alex Eickelbeck was on pole for the 190lb class with Andrew Wood second. The second row had Ennis Bragg third and Gary Megennis fourth. In the 220 lb class, Dave Harmon had the best time and that landed him 6th on the grid just ahead of Jason Annunziata. At the start, Gary Megennis got caught up with Steve Eickelbeck and that dropped him to 6th on lap one. Out front, Wood got by Eickelbeck to grab the point until lap 10 when Eickelbeck was able to get back past him. Eickelbeck would eventually take over the race and finished with a comfortable 8 second lead at the end. Behind him wood and Bragg were battling furiously and in the end Bragg was able to get by Wood with 6 laps left to get second place. In the 220 lb class, Harmon was able to hold onto his 6th place position and win the class over Annunziato and Scott Schirmer.
