The weekend of June 18-19 saw 10 SARRC drivers competing. We would have liked to have seen more, but we understand it is a long haul up there. We had several workers come up. Heather Clark and Mo Overstreet flagged. Sara and I were in Registration, but it is only an hour and a half from our home, so it is easy. Jan Coleman-Mitchell did Race Control, Sharon Rollow was in Registration, Dave Rollow and Rick Mitchell were Stewards, and Sue Roethel was Honorary Chief Steward. The appearance by Sue was a big hit among the DCR membership.
If you were not aware, there is a SARRC/MARRS or MARRS/SARRC (depending on which side you look at) trophy, that is being contested between the two racing series. The first half of the challenge was the SARRC/MARRS Challenge, held at VIR May 7-8. The second half will be held at Summit Point Raceway on June 18-19. It is the MARRS5/Double SARRC. By the way,WDCR is offering a $100 discount to any driver who hasn’t raced there in two years. That means two SARRC points races for $235! The discount must be requested in advance and is noted on MotorsportReg.
Bob Brookfield has compiled the following information for those traveling to Summit for the race. He has listed motels in the Winchester, VA area and also in Charles Town, WV. Note that the WDC Region does not have any agreement at this time with any motel in the area of the track for an SCCA discount. The info he sent includes comments/suggestions for routes to that area. Also included are general directions from I-81 to the track. Thanks Bob!
Sure you do. We all know the best way to hook someone is to bring them to an event. When they get there they’ll say, “Wow! I never knew something like this existed.” You’ll say, “Wow! I’ve been telling you about it for years.”
Well now you can bring events to them. We’ve made some movies you can show them. The most recent is Opie Goes Racing, a story of a boy whose racing dreams come true. The Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point was the Solo Season Opener from Cherry Point. Click the links.
If you’ve never worked or driven at a race somewhere other than VIR, you should know that traveling to new tracks can be a great way to meet new friends, build on existing friendships, and learn more about what we do! Anyone who has traveled around will agree. So, how about visiting one of these wonderful facilities:
