Autumn weather has officially arrived at the track, gracing Club Spring Mountain with fantastic racing conditions as our drivers took on the Fittipaldi (F) 3.4-mile course. It was another whirlwind race weekend with 20 Prototype and 19 Sports Car drivers on grid – our largest turnout of the season yet!! We’re looking forward to this streak continuing in the coming months!
November’s race weekend was exhilarating to say the least – from a few race restarts to minor on-track contact, there was plenty of excitement to pay attention to. Darin Harvey raced with us for the very first time this weekend as he competed in the Prototype Rookie class with his Radical. Danyelle Rabine participated in her first Time Attack competition in the GT3 class, sporting the Blue Marble livery on her Mini Cooper. Additionally, Michael Greenberg II made podium for the first time at Spring Mountain, claiming 2nd place in the GT4 class with his Miata. There were several new track records as well in both the Prototype and Sports Car classes.
On Sunday, our first ever Ladies’ Track Day event took place as the guys cheered on the girls! We had eight ladies that geared up in some of Spring Mountain’s Corvettes for a thrilling autocross competition. Additionally, our podium winners loved sporting the specially-made pink trophies. We look forward to seeing these placed beside their significant others’ trophies, further encouraging the comradery that is always present at Club Spring Mountain. The role reversal was exciting to witness and it’s safe to say our female drivers enjoyed the friendly competition!
Thank you to all the wonderful sponsors of our Club Spring Mountain Race Series – Blue Marble Cocktails, Dakine, Vertra, and Michelin. As always, thank you to all of our incredible staff for ensuring the successful execution of every race weekend and Spring Mountain Racing for providing top-tier service day-in and day-out. We are grateful to have such an amazing team and can’t wait to see you all again next month!
