Nominations for next year’s Board of Directors are now open.

It’s that time of year when we elect a new slate of officers to run this club. All NCR members are eligible and we encourage as wide a range of participation as possible.

New candidates should not feel intimidated. The NCR Bylaws provide that we elect half of our Region’s officers every year, and that we alternate them in pairs, in order to provide continuity from year to year. So there will always be experienced people present to help you get acclimated to your new position. Even if you’ve volunteered before and were not elected, we urge you now to try again. Some of our current officers would like to retire!

North Carolina Region SCCA

October 9th, 2013

The fall series for races are just around the corner. Plan on coming to VIR for two great weekends of racing. We start in less than two weeks with the Goblins Go SARRC/Double ECR/Tar Heel Cup races on Oct 19th and 20th. Then the following weekend we have the Charge of the Headlight Brigade 13 hour race Oct 25th and 26th.

We desperately need volunteers for both events, especially in F&C. If you have already registered, thank you! If not, please think about joining us. If you have friends who might be interested in experiencing the racing excitement, encourage them to come along.

Also, as a reminder, we have the NCR Volunteer Incentive Program where we will reimburse workers for up to $35 dollars in expenses per day.

Most of our members received e-mail updates from the National Office about the many races that comprised the 50th Anniversary RunOffs, October 16-23, but for those who did not, here’s a run down of how our local drivers fared. No, we didn’t crown any National Champions this year, but that doesn’t mean we were not well-represented.

In DSR, the Triangle’s own Doug Piner of Chapel Hill finished 6th after qualifying 9th in his Dauntless MX-1, powered by Suzuki. Since he gained all those positions on his own, Doug was presented with the Sunoco Hard Charger award. Way to go, Doug!! BTW, the race winner was Chris Farrell of Salt Lake City, Utah in a Stohr WF1.
