The Turn @ MCAS Cherry Point, June 22, 2014 — The SCCA Solo community and NC Region lost one of its most beloved members this morning as James Feinberg passed, surrounded by Solo friends. James succumbed to an undetermined condition while hospitalized after collapsing at this event on Sunday.

Feinberg, seen below after winning the Super Challenge at the DC Pro, claimed a Solo National Championship in 2011. More than a fierce competitor behind the wheel, however, James was known nationwide as a magnetic personality within our sport. Jim always met our community and approached competition with a smile.

The June Triangle Chapter meeting was much better attended than the May meeting, since there wasn’t a huge race weekend brewing at VIR. But, our members have been busy. Before the meeting, and for some time afterward, Member-at-Large Sam Fouse was telling Brock Nicholson, James Echells, and me about his recent visit to the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach, where they recently had a WWII fly-in, with dozens of old war birds on display both on the ground and in the air. Besides old cars, there’s nothing like old aircraft to get our guys enthused. Then Chuck Hines showed up with video of his last two races in his ITS RX-7. We saw in-car footage of the SARRC/MARRS double at VIR and the last race at CMP in Kershaw, South Carolina. Thanks, Chuck!
