Selin Rollan leads the 2015 South East Division SCCA Majors
Championship after 3 events!
March 9th, 2015
Young Selin Rollan has had a super start to the 2015 SCCA Majors Season.
After 3 events and 6 races, Selin leads the championship, followed by
Alex Bolanos, Andrew Carbonell, Elivan Goulart and fellow Rossini driver
Danny Steyn in 5th place.
Steyn, who has podiumed five times in six races would be leading the
championship but lost his points from the first two races due to a
shine at the 2015 NOLA Majors event in New Orleans Louisiana
March 9th, 2015
Rossini drivers Danny Steyn and Selin Rollan were on fine form at the
NOLA track just outside New Orleans Louisiana. For both drivers it was
their first time at the track so they were both at a real disadvantage
against the drivers that had raced and tested at the track prior to the
all important Majors race with one of the deepest fields ever assembled
for a non-runoffs event.
Despite their disadvantage Steyn went to the front of the grid to clench
the pole position with a time of 1:58.071, almost three tenths faster
then the 2nd place qualifier Jim Drago. Rollan also rose to the occasion
with an 8th place on the gird.
Race 1, Steyn barely avoided the Turn 1 carnage, and after the
restart led almost the entire race. Coming into the last three turns
Steyn was in the lead but over drove the Turn 12 and ended up in 3rd
place for his 5th podium in 5 Majors races. Rollan was running in 4th
place when he lost a brake caliper and managed to limp home in 15th
For Race 2, Steyn started on the pole again and led the first
three laps before falling back to 6th place after being bumped off line
in Turn 6. Rollan made it up to 3rd place and ran in the top four for
much of the race, Steyn started fighting back and drove his Rossini
powered Spec Miata back to 3rd place only to lose rd by 3/1000ths of a
second at the line.

Danny Steyn podiums both days at the Sebring SCCA Majors
January 17th, 2015
Sebring Majors always draws a huge field of Spec Miata drivers and this
year was no different. 70 Spec Miata drivers entered the event, and
there were over 20 Rossini powered drivers in the field.
Race 1, Dillon Machavern and Danny Steyn managed to break away
from the pack almost immediately and ran nose-to-tail for the entire
event with Machavern leading the entire race, except when he went 4 off
in Turn 5. Andrew Carbonell finished 3rd. Rossini drivers Selin Rollan
finished 6th with Mark Gibbons in 13th.
Race 2 was a very intense race between Steyn, Machavern and
Carbonell. Steyn got into the lead immediately and led the first four
laps. Thereafter the lead changed several times. The race for the win
came down to the last lap with Machavern triumphing over Carbonell and
Steyn. Rossini drivers Rollan and Gibbons finished 6th and 10th
