racing. Returning champions Amanda Mastin and Randi Mastin both landed on the podium in their first GNCCs of the season, with Amanda taking a win in the second event of the year.
Round One of the GNCC season at Daytona, Florida on March 8th saw Randi take second in the Masters A class. He said, “I am happy with my results today. It’s the first race of the series and the only one that has track conditions like this. So, I’m just happy to be done with it and ready to head to Georgia.” Mandi also finished second in her division, stating, “I started off kind of slow today, but once I got going I had a great time. The course was really fast and wide open. It’s always nice to come down here to Florida and race but it is a little out of our element.”
Mandi would also compete in the Alligator Enduro before leaving Florida, where she would take another second-place finish. Round Two of the GNCC events at Washington, Georgia the following weekend brought rain and bitter cold. Proving the previous weekend was no fluke, Randi Mastin once again landed a consistent second-place finish, while Mandi caught fire and won her class by nearly a 4 minute margin. The finishes put Randi in the points lead and Mandi in a tie for first in their respective GNCC classes.
In AMA National Enduro competiton, the team has been simply unstoppable. The Bel-Ray sponsored duo of Randi and Amanda Mastin won the first two events, and the third round at Forest Hill, Louisianna on March 15 was no exception. In picture-perfect conditions, both team riders scored first-place finishes, earning them both a perfect 90 of 90 available championship points in their respective classes. Mandi’s win was a first of another sort, as she successfully piloted a 250cc 4-stroke for the first time instead of her usual 125cc 2-stroke. “I had a blast riding this weekend!” she said. “It was so different to be racing a 4-stroke. I have a lot to learn, but I had a great time! The trails were good and it was just a fun weekend all in all!”
The next race for Off-Camber Racing will be March 30, 2008 in Morganton, North Carolina for the 3rd round of the GNCC Series. Check out the website at www.teamoffcamber.com to view the team schedule, race reports and current updates.
