"The car for D-SR"
"The A-Mac AM-6, which debuted in 1991, is a proven race winner.
In itís short history, the AM-6 has racked up an impressive list of
records and victories. In itís inaugural season, driver David Arken
raced the AM-6 to a new class lap record at Sears Point International
Raceway. In 1992, driver Nelson Fesas won the Portland Rose Cup National
event. That same year, driver Gary Guethlein captured the San Francisco
Regional Championship in what is considered to be the "Hot-Bed"
of D-SR competition. In early 1993, driver Nancy James sped to new class
qualifying records at Willow Springs Raceway, Holtville Raceway, and a
race lap record at Willow Springs Raceway. Later in 1993, driver David
Arken again set the Sears Point track ablaze when he lowered the class
qualifying record. To top off this list of accomplishments, at the 1993
Pacific Coast Road Racing Championships, drivers David Arken, Eric Jochim,
and Gary Guethlein conquered the competition by finishing in the A-Macs
one, two , and three. Clearly the A-Mac AM-6 is THE CAR for D-Sports
