Wish the guys well, as they travel all over the Southeast in an Exocet Sport to take on some of the best tracks! Since last year, we’ve installed the new sport windshield, fitted with AS1 safety glass. It should prove to be a much more luxurious ride!
“The 2017 Targa Southland is a multi-discipline driving event that covers autocross, time trials, road rally, and more than 600 miles of driving through South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee. If one automotive event per weekend is good, 6 must be great. Targa is for people who like a challenge. Targa is because you love having fun with cars.”-SCCA
Follow our progress today on the RaceHero App as Jason Owens pilots the LS3-powered Exocet Sport at the Ultimate Track Car Challenge. We’re in Group B and are scheduled to run at 11:15am, 2:00pm, and 4:10pm.
To say Exocet drivers, Randy Pobst, and Jason Owens, had a blast in the naturally aspirated 1.8L Exocet Sport all weekend, would be a huge understatement. The guys had a chance to road trip all over the Southeast this weekend, competing in autocross, time trial, track day, and road rally events. Team “Exosperimental” tore it up on day one at Charlotte Motor Speedway, then made their way over to Atlanta Motorsports Park to continue the fun. You can check out their write up here! After their fun in Georgia came to a close, the drivers turned North, to Bowling Green, Kentucky. Once at the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park, the festivities began again. Read all about the track, and competition, in their write up on day two, here! For their closing day, the victors were decided, with an amazing “13 way dead-heat” for the drivers who had perfect scores all around. After the final road rally, all the participants joined in for the last cookout, and festivities the event had in store. Check out the final day, and competitor standings, here! Overall, it was a great kick-off to a fresh event that showed off the Exocet’s capabilities in the hands of some amazing drivers; we’d love to participate again!
