5th place Lime Rock after cooling problems cause Rick problems.

After  26 laps in front of the pack, holding a solid 5 second advantage over the Corvette of veteran Bondurant instructor Bob Cooper, and fighting a  blistering back and forth battle for the lead with an everpressing Bobby Archer's Dodge Viper, Rick DiIorio came back from a stalling engine and the rough landscaping in LRP's Big Bend to pull out a 5th place finish in Saturday's American Challenge 45 lap event at Rick's home track of Lime Rock Park.

DNF at Mid-Ohio

Frustration at Mid-Ohio. Long hours and a 12 hour haul. No practice, qualify 8th. Conservative start only to drop out at 5th lap. Suspension failure at end of fastest part of the track fortunately only causes DNF, no serious damage to car or driver.

Hard fought 6th at Trois-Rivieres

Heat and tough competition were the story at Three Rivers, Quebec. Qualifying 5th, and conserving his car, Rick ran a consistent and strong race to bring his Saleen to home in one piece against formidable (and well funded) opposition.
