Rolf’s beautiful Blown Nugget Chevy Coupe is always a crowd-pleaser. At May’s Main Event (MSA Rnd. 2), Rolf clocked a pair of 7.0s in qualifying before rain curtailed the action.

At September’s FIA European Finals (MSA Rnd. 4), he ran close to his career best at 6.61/214 to qualify 15th in the stellar field, but hit the wall on a subsequent pass and was forced to withdraw from competition. Luckily Rolf himself was unhurt but his car sustained serious chassis damage.
