Race Highlights JANUARY 2018

The first race weekend of the New Year greeted members with two sunny, crisp winter days, perfect weather to take on the Fittipaldi (C) 3.6-mile course. It was great to see everyone fired up and ready to take on a new season after the holidays.

Many members describe the comradery of racing with friends as a highlight to the weekend. Sharing the joy with a son or daughter is a pleasure many of us will never experience. So it was incredibly exciting to see "Indy" Al Miller and his son AJ Miller race together in this month's Light Sport Race. Congratulations to AJ for scoring top podium in the Rookie Division on both days! Welcome to the Club!

We were pleased to welcome Spring Mountain Driving Instructor, Brandon Chappell, to organize our Miata and Lotus drivers. Chappell had a large group for his first weekend and all were enthusiastic and ready to race. As always, the Miata race was exciting and fun to watch with Gregg Gorski and Ron Fletcher mixing it up throughout the race. Miata's never disappoint!
