We would like to give a big thank you to everyone who came out for the Oak Tree Double National. We had a couple of long days, but they were filled with some great racing. Except for a little bit of weather on Friday afternoon, it was a fantastic weekend. Thank you all for coming out to join us and help make it a great weekend.

I’d like to thank our Race Chair, Sara Snider, for hijacking the shrimp boat on her way to the track. Yet another tasty treat!

Now, on to the next race! Quickly approaching is the SARRC/MARRS Challenge, May 11 & 12 at VIR. This is a Double Regional with 2 Regions, so I guess that makes it a quadruple. That’s a lot of racing to pack into two days and you don’t want to miss it. If you have any turn requests, just add them to the remarks when you register.

Thank You NCR!

Thank you from Majors Series Administrator to NCR

On behalf of the Majors Team, I’d like to thank the North Carolina Region for hosting rounds five and six of the Eastern Conference of the U.S. Majors Tour.  The event delivered above our expectations, largely due to the efforts of the North Carolina Region personnel and I want you to know how much it was appreciated.

I want to thank you for all your pre-event work which made my arrival at VIR go so smoothly as well as all your support during the weekend.  I also want to thank you for recruiting Sandy Sisk to help me at Victory Circle.  She is a natural and was a huge help.  I really enjoyed meeting her and spending the weekend with her.   Having Patty and Dawn take the iPad Mini around to get folks to do the survey was great.

Please accept our sincere apologies for yesterday’s April Fools Day newsletter.   The date of the BFGoodrich Tires VIR Super Tour — Oak Tree Double National has NOT CHANGED it remains April 19-21, 2013.

All of the other information in that newsletter was accurate.

The person responsible for the unfactual date change has been sacked.  This event is part of SCCA’s U.S. Majors Tour and is very serious.

The date of the Oak Tree Double National has been CHANGED.  Go check your calendars now to see if you are available for the new date, April 19th – 21st, 2013.

Thanks to VIR and another car club being flexible, we were able to accommodate SCCA National’s insistance we change the event date to April 19th – 21st.

All of the paperwork and websites have been adjusted to reflect the new date.  If you have already pre-registered, we have adjusted your form and now expect you to honor your commitment to the new date (changing it would be too much trouble on our end).  If you are not able to attend the new date, please let us know.

So the 2013 Race Season is barreling forward. The 24 Hours of Daytona, The 12-Hours of Sebring, St. Pete’s (which many of your fellow flaggers helped staff…stay tuned for pictures) and our local March Memories have come and gone. Time to start (finish?) planning for the upcoming Double National at our own VIR.

BFGoodrich Tires VIR Super Tour: Oak Tree Double National

April 19th – April 21st

Unlike most of our events held on Saturdays and Sundays, this time there’s an extra day to come out and play (and receive a $35 punch). Be part of the Friday crew. Plan this now as for most of you this will include taking time off from the job that pays the bills. The linked schedule below will aid you in making your plans.

Report on the SCCA National Convention

by John Lindquist, Assistant Regional Executive

I will surely leave something out, but not on purpose. My first SCCA National Convention and it was worth the trip! You see I am not a gambler so the trip was for the Convention. I did, however, lose $4 showing my wife, Annie, how the slot machines worked. There you have it, bet $4 and lost $4, just what I expected!

Now to the reason for the trip… It seems like it was well attended by folks from all over the country, lots of RE’s and specialty chiefs. One of the first things Jerry Pell and myself did notice, was that the majority of the folks attending were…well, we will just say past mid-life. This was somewhat understandable since travel, work and the like would keep several non-retired folks away.
