Club Spring Mountain was greeted with beautiful sunny skies for another great race weekend as our members took on the Andretti (C) 4.0-mile course. Once again, we had a fantastic turnout with 17 Prototype and 18 Sports Car drivers on grid for the races. It was an exciting weekend with plenty of action to capture our spectators’ attention! We couldn’t keep our eyes off the track!
The head-to-head competition was fierce all weekend long as our racers were eager to create point gaps in the series! Numerous track records were broken after Friday’s races in both the Prototype and Sports Car classes. The very first GT1 track record for the Andretti (C) course was also claimed by Scott Gibson in his Lotus GT4e. We loved seeing everyone so thrilled to go lap after lap against their racing competitors, all while sporting our wonderful sponsors proudly on their racecars.
The “fastest growing sport in America” officially made its debut at the Club over the weekend as well! Friends and family had the amazing opportunity of playing Pickleball with the pro himself, Raudel Barba. Raudel is the Founder and Director of Coaching for the U.S. Professional Pickleball Association, as well as the California representative for the PPA Pro Pickleball Tour. Guests and members alike had a blast learning from Raudel’s decade of knowledge with clinics available to anyone that wanted to try their hand at this new and exciting game. The newly constructed Pickleball Court is now available exclusively to property owners at Spring Mountain Estates and we encourage all homeowners to take full advantage of this fun-filled activity
"Pickleball with The Pro!"
