B-Street Prepared’s 2012 winner was decided by barely two blinks of an eye in 2012, with Mark Baer having to settle for a hard fought and well-earned second place in class, driving his SCR Performance BMW M3.
Day one finished with Baer sitting in first place in BSP, not even a full tenth ahead of second place sitter, and eventual winner Jason Uyeda out of California. Despite disadvantages in all three measures of weight, tire, and horsepower, Baer was able to snake the M3 through the cones well enough to just pip Jason for the day 1 lead. Even after the first day, it was clear there were only two contenders for the title, as the third place car was a full three-quarters of a second adrift, and would ultimately finish nearly two seconds behind the two leaders.
Day two was run on the more open, faster east course, and here the greater horsepower of Uyeda’s S2000 was able to stretch its legs, and Mark was unable to overcome the difference, ultimately settling for a very impressive second place finish.
Congratulations to Mark!
