what can only be described as one of the most amazing days at Rossini
Racing, our Team Rossini drivers swept all three podium spots on both
days at the Sebring Turkey Trot Double SARRC this past weekend.
Team Rossini drivers start
from the top 4 positions at the 2014 Sebring Turkey Trot Double SARCC.
L-R:- Mark Gibbons, Danny Steyn, Alex Bolanos, Selin Rollan.
For Race 1, Danny Steyn started on pole with Selin Rollan in 2nd, Alex
Bolanos in 3rd and Mark Gibbons in 4th. In an epic dice for the win, all
three drivers took turns at the front, and several times went two and
even three wide through several turns. Steyn emerged victorious with a
12/1000ths second victory over Bolanos and Rollan just a 1/10th behind.
Race 2 Rossini drivers occupied the top 4 spots on the gird, with
Bolanos on pole, Steyn 2nd, Rollan 3rd and Gibbons 4th. In the Race
there were several lead swaps until Steyn retired with a flat tire,
allowing Bolanos, Rollan and Gibbons to fight it out. All took turns at
leading the race. Rollan emerged victorious with an 18/1000ths second
victory over Bolanos and Gibbons in 3rd.

finishes 3rd at VIR 13-hour endurp on year old Rossini engine in
ultra competitive Spec Miata class !!
November 10th, 2014
The Rossini Racing powered Spec Miata of Grant MacDonald finished 3rd in
class at the 13 hour “Charge of the Headlight Brigade” enduro
Virginia International Raceway. Drivers Grant MacDonald, Ess White,
Tristan Herbert and Cody Ware waged a hard fought battle in the ultra
competitive Spec Miata class.
Said Grant after the finish, “There is no question in my mind that Mike
Rossini builds some of the best Spec Miata engines in the country. I
raced the entire 2014 season with ONE motor and due to a limited budget
we were not able to freshen it before the race. However, it was as
strong at the finish of the 13 hour enduro as it was at the start”.
