The theme of Solo Event #6 was ‘Hot’. As in hot drivers, hot tires, a hot course, and it was just plain HOT.
166 drivers (just 41 less than the National Tour) showed up for Cone-a-Thon, New England Region’s 6th point’s event of the year. They were treated to a course that would not have looked out of place at the National Tour, temps in the high 80’s that had many drivers scrambling for the watersprayers , and 5 sixty second runs that had the fast drivers at the top of second gear.
With August fast approaching it’s time to start thinking about how we can raise the most money possible for the charities we are supporting. The Aug. 4-5 weekend should give everyone plenty of choices.
There will be Road Racing, Rally and Solo. All groups will be selling RAL 2012 decals, Breast Cancer decals and cozy’s and Raffle tickets. Look for them at registration and throughout the weekend.
We are also offering the much in demand Hot Laps on the track during lunch Sat. & hopefully Sun.
Time permitting, there will be track rides at day’s end Sat.
210 drivers, from 14 different States and 3 Canadian Provinces showed up for the Northeast National Tour at Moore Airfield in Devens, MA. The weather was superb, starting off in the 50’s each morning and progressing into the 70’s by late afternoon.
Instead of the usual event write up, I thought I’d offer some random thoughts, ideas, and events:
I would like to wish all NER SCCA members an enjoyable and safe Memorial Day Weekend. Special thanks go out our members who have or are serving in the Armed Forces. We should also honor many SCCA members who were Veterans and have passed on and now occupy our history books. I feel that SCCA has deep roots with the military.
Springtime Coneage – Event #3 certainly lived up to its name. With at least 474 cones hit (results do not show cones on DNF runs), corner workers got a good workout at our third event. With 148 drivers that cone count averages 3.2 cones per driver, and a cone being hit on more than half the runs.
Dirt piles, metal framing, construction equipment, and a vanished grid area. This is what greeted the Solo program as they pulled into New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday April, 21. All that was needed to make things really gloomy was the threat of rain, but, thanks to the master of scheduling, Bob Davis, the Saturday event was again the better of the two weekend days.
