Hometown: Mill Spring, North Carolina
Car: BBR Shark (Bowland Boys Racing) built in 2001, designed by my son Todd and built by me. This is the fourth car we have built for Autocross/Hillclimb since 1984. Powered by a three cylinder two stroke 1050cc Snowmobile motor built by John Hooper Race Engines in New Hampshire.
Sponsor: Mid-Atlantic Motorsports, Tom Reichel owner.
Class: A- Mod
I own five Solo National Championships and two Pro Solo National Championships
with these cars and Todd has one of each.
Crow Mountain is an outstanding hill, and there is no doubt in my mind
that it is the best site of any currently running in the US. It combines
both high speed and very technical sections. It will take several years
to get it right due to the complicated nature of the many turns. That
factor will provide many new records each year. The hill also lends itself
to cars that are light and have high aerodynamic downforce.
