Xtreme Gs History
In December of 1996, 4 unacquainted women racers got together for a 6 hour Endurance Race put on by the National Auto Sport Association. Little did they know it would be the beginning of a journey to understanding and becoming competitive in a predominantly male sport. At the end of those 6 hours Laura, Becky, Allison, and Sue finished 2nd in their very competitive, all-male class and realized this series was for them!!!
The next year brought a concerted, yet relaxed effort by the fledgling team. Utilizing a race car dedicated to an aggressively run sprint series (Pro-7, Driver - Allison Duncan) which ran races immediately preceding endurance races, Xtreme Gs successfully started and finished every race for the season. At years end they placed 3rd in season points - the only female racers entered in the series of 25 other, all-male teams.
1998 began with the development of a dedicated new endurance race car. The first few races were run with borrowed or rented race cars, yet Xtreme Gs placed 2nd in the first 2 races and 1st in the big race to follow - a 6 hour event! It was not until mid-way through the season that the "Meteor" made her debut - a white-yellow-red, "enter-the-atmosphere HOT" 1979 Mazda RX7 By seasons end Xtreme Gs placed 2nd in overall points - again, the only female drivers out of 26 teams entered in the series.
This year, Xtreme Gs Motorsports is dedicating itself not only to the game of endurance racing but to the role of supporting and encouraging other females to experience the challenges and excitement of this very exhilarating sport!
