Press Release – Season Results

The following press release was prepared by our sponsors and released over the wire. Excerpts have been posted here: and I suspect we’ll see additional write-ups soon. Here is the complete text:


RIDGEFIELD, Conn. (Jan. 8, 2013) – When he changed from John Robbins, race car driver, to John Robbins, regional champion, it wasn’t time to sit in an easy chair and enjoy the off season.
Robbins, who works in the finance industry, will spend the winter months working closely with EFI Logics (Bethel, Ct.) on the 2008 Mitsubishi Evolution X racer that they campaign throughout the Northeast, trying to find more speed.
“Everyone in my class will be looking for an edge over the winter,” Robbins said recently. “We can’t take any time off.”
Robbins won the 2012 NASA Northeast Time Trial Series championship, winning three times and posting three track records. His wins and records came at the New Jersey Motorsports Park (twice) and at Pocono Raceway. He had several non-winning podium finishes as well.
“You can’t win a championship in the winter time, but you sure can lose one then,” Robbins said. “We have to keep after the technology, build up the parts inventory, update the safety equipment and make sure the car is set up for the entire season. I’ll work side-by-side with EFI Logics, Boosted Racing, Girodisc, Moroso, Full Race and other industry leaders to get the car just right. We have to be completely ready from the first race on, and that takes preparation and coordination.”
It is a champions’ lament. The work never stops. But, as is true in every sport, it is a lot easier to win a title once than it is to stay on top. Robbins knows all about the demands of defending a title because his 2012 championship was his second straight. He won nine times in his 2011 campaign.
The NASA Northeast Time Trial class will change names in 2013 to Time Trial 2, but Robbins said the competitive challenge will remain the same.
“NASA Northeast has developed a great and very competitive Time Trial series and the field of competitors and quality of the hardware has grown considerably over the past several years. It’s hard to win one of these things,” he said. “Winning three straight will take some work.”
