Greensboro, NC – (NCRSCCA) – HELLO Race Fans!! You should have been there, great fellowship, food and drinks.
We started off watching some footage of the Goblins Go at VIR. It was good to have the big screen TV up and running. 15 of us welcomed guest Mike Dehaan to SCCA. Mike and his son are builting a race car, SPO? It will be exciting to see what they make of the Mustang.
Raleigh, NC – (NCRSCCA) – The last Triangle Chapter meeting of the year was held at El Rodeo in Raleigh, and it was a good one. Mark Senior supplied in-car video from the cockpit of his Spec Miata at VIR and we had not one, but two, 2012 SARRC Champions in attendance. Chuck Hines took first in ITS after a fierce season-long battle with Jeff Young, who finished second. Chuck was with us but not Jeff, and to hear Chuck tell it, the championship came down to the last lap of the last race of the season – it was that close. Congratulations, Chuck! Well fought, Jeff! The Chapter salutes you both. We also saluted F500 champ Boz Marchi who was present as well. Way to go, Boz!
Raleigh, NC – (NCRSCCA) – We had a great time at the November meeting of the Triangle Chapter! Tom Long, co-driver of the overall winner of the Charge of the Headlight Brigade, the Freedom Motorsports #25 MX-5, dropped by with his work buddy, Sean Calton, so Sean could meet the troops and see what we were all about. Welcome Sean! And Justin Deffenbaugh showed up with one of his annotated videos of his brother Blair driving in the Goblin’s Go. The captions Justin added were hilarious, but Blair got his brother back on film with his single digit salute as he rounded Oak Tree where Justin was flagging. Too funny! Well done, guys! And Chuck Hines also provided video of his exciting dice with Jeff Young at the same race. Talk about not giving an inch! These guys went at it hammer and tongs lap after lap. All eyes were on the big screen and there was plenty of cheering as they swapped the lead in ITS over and over again. It was something to see!
