UPDATE (10/11/12): Phil’s old race cars and trailers are for sale here.
RALEIGH, NC – (NCRSCCA) – “Hey! Where’s ‘Radio Phil?’” is a question we’ve been hearing at VIR since the 13-hour enduro of last October. Well, Phil Hennrich, also known as “Mr. Equipment” is alive and well at the Wake Assisted Living facility in Raleigh. A 38-year veteran of this club and long-time volunteer, Phil wore a variety of hats over the years, including Solo Safety Steward, Rally Steward, Club Treasurer, and competition driver, as well as F&C and radio tech (yes, Carolina, he has an SCCA license in that specialty too!). And, if I am not mistaken, he may still hold the SCCA class record in GT3 on the VIR Grand Course in his Pinto.
RALEIGH, NC — (NCRSCCA) — The Tar Heel Sports Car Club (THSCC) has announced that they are adding a “test and tune” group to their April 7-8 HPDE/TT at VIR (see below). This is a big plus for our folks as it means that SCCA racers with competition licenses and logbooks who are looking for some track time to tweak their cars or their driving skills, can now participate. They also note that their student run groups are only about half full right now, so there is still lots of room for those who want to do the school. (Thanks to Mark Senior for this “heads up”!)
Very sad news. I received the following email from Vicki Wilson on Saturday, Aug 13:
Hello SCCA folks,
This is Vicki Wilson, former flagging and communications worker. Most of you know Dave Page who also flagged for many years. Dave passed away this morning at Duke Med Center following a brief illness. Funeral arrangements are listed below and I am trying to help the family notify his many friends. I also sent an announcement to James Shanks asking him to notify folks. I have been in contact with Dwight and Chuck.
Thank you for spreading the word.
Timberlake, NC (NCR SCCA) — After an extended period without much communication regarding Region business between the NC Region Board of Directors and the NCR membership — no newsletter for almost a year, no BoD meeting minutes and only sporadic Chapter and RE reports while the website was being upgraded — we now hope to rectify that situation by having all of the above posted here, on the NCR website.
