UPDATE (10/11/12): Phil’s old race cars and trailers are for sale here.
RALEIGH, NC – (NCRSCCA) – “Hey! Where’s ‘Radio Phil?’” is a question we’ve been hearing at VIR since the 13-hour enduro of last October. Well, Phil Hennrich, also known as “Mr. Equipment” is alive and well at the Wake Assisted Living facility in Raleigh. A 38-year veteran of this club and long-time volunteer, Phil wore a variety of hats over the years, including Solo Safety Steward, Rally Steward, Club Treasurer, and competition driver, as well as F&C and radio tech (yes, Carolina, he has an SCCA license in that specialty too!). And, if I am not mistaken, he may still hold the SCCA class record in GT3 on the VIR Grand Course in his Pinto.
If you ever saw him race it (we’ll call it “beige” just to be kind), you’d never forget it. In any case, Phil is now receiving visitors at 2800 Kidd Road in Raleigh (27610). Drop by and say hello, or give him a call at 919-212-0038. Cards and letters would be appreciated too, since he still doesn’t get out much. Here’s hoping he’ll make one of our events soon.
Additionally, the North Carolina Region would like to extend our condolences to Phil and the entire Hennrich family on the recent passing of his mother, who died suddenly on July 22nd.
