J 7 he rwpnprr VrmphU Betifa by Jim Ruzicka and Jim Kennicott With Park City still in the grip of late winter, Park City residents Peter Cole, Ken Osswald, Bill and Karen Coleman, Joyce Plowman, Ted Warr, Jerry Hoke, Mike Barnes, Ray Robidoux, Tracy Vincent and others were basking in the southern California sunshine at the 7th Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach last weekend. The highlight of the weekend was the Formula One race, but spectators were treated to a wide range of competition ranging from a Nike 10 km footrace to a Yamaha 250 cc motorcycle event and a Bridgestone Pro Kart Invitational, all through the streets of downtown Long Beach. On late Saturday afternoon with the sun in the drivers' eyes on the long straightaway, Geoff Brabham repeated his winning performance of 1981 in the first Formula Atlantic race of the season. Geoff is the son of former three-time Formula One world champion Sir Jack Brabham. To further prove the adage, "like father, like son", Al Unser Jr. placed third. Nineteen-year-old Mike Andretti, son of Mario Andretti, , former world champion, did not finish because of a gear box failure. Rookie Roberto Moreno surprised the experts by finishing second just 7.8 seconds behind Brabham. Olympic Decathlete Bruce Jenner won his second Toyota Pro Celebrity race by a narrow margin. Ted Nugent led the first eight laps of the 10 lap race and seemed unbeatable until Jenner squeezed by Parker Stevenson and passed Nugent. Robert Hays and Nugent were involved in a minor incident on lap eight which dropped Nugent out of contention. Mr- f,l A H:M it . -ft ft 4.

With. the . additional snowfall this week the home game on April 13 against Judge may also have to be changed to Salt Lake. Sometime Park City visitor Paul Williams drove his car number one-quarter to an excellent eighth position ahead of Hays and Joe Montana.

Close behind in third position was former world champion Niki Lauda of Austria in the carbon fiber McLaren MP4 built in part by the Hercules Inc. Aerospace Division of Magna, Utah. When Rene Arnoux of Team Renault put his car out of the race in an incident with Bruno Giacomelli Alfa Romeo, Lauda began to reel in de Cesaris, passing him on lap 15. Mario Andretti, driving the TAG Williams, hit the wall in turn 4, damaging the rear axle and tire, and retired. By lap 35 Lauda had opened up a lead of over 50 seconds over Keke Rosberg of Finland, driving the other Williams FW08. With 40.5 laps to go Lauda was driving very cautiously, using up his cushion on the deteriorating course. At the finish Rosberg was only 14.66 second behind Lauda. Gilles Villeneuve of Canada : drove steadily through the pack to finish third in the 1 Ferrari 126 C2, the only turbocharged car to go the distance. In fact, less than half of the field of 26 cars survived accidents and mechanical failures to take the checkered flag. The points race for the world championship after three races is headed by Keke Rosberg with 14, followed by Alain Prost with 13, Lauda with 12, and 1982 world champion Nelson Piquet with 9. The manufact urers points race is now headed by McLarenHercules. There are twelve races remaining with three in North America: Detroit on June 6; Montreal on June 13 and the final race of the season in Las Vegas on September 25. The United States is currently the only country allowed to stage more than one Formula One race and has the only avenues outside of Monaco where races are sanctioned on city streets. It was an exciting way to spend a few days, especially with the weather cooperating as well as it did in Long Beach. Adolph's takes second in Bartender's Cup You wouldn't think Utah would have much of a chance in something called the Bartenders' Cup, given the state's reputation for abstinence. But you'd be wrong. Utah teams swept past eight other contenders from the mountain states to capture the top two places in the Lite Bartenders' Cup Championships held April 1 in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The members of the top two teams are all familiar to local race-watchers because of their involvement in Park City 's Town Race series. Finishing first in the 10-team competition was The Haggis Bar team, consisting of Victor Roy, Londa Davis' and Tom Rheinerth. The Haggis won the team trophy over Park City's Adolph's team, composed of Karri Hays, Bill Skinner and Arch Wright. Roy and Davis also posted the fastest individual times of the April 1 competition, held on a dual giant slalom course at Steamboat. The 10 teams in the Bartenders' Cup finals earned the right to travel to Steamboat by winning regional competitions held earlier in the year at area ski resorts. Skinner, Hays and Wright defeated 36 other teams in Park City Feb. 17. The Haggis won a similar competition held at Snowbird. Snowbird announces spring and summer skiing Snowbird has announced its extended hours and rates, for the remainder of the 81-82 ski season. Spring skiing will continue through May 9 with the Mid-Gad.
