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”!)
RALEIGH, NC – (NCR-SCCA) – The 2011 NCR Awards Dinner was held Saturday night, January 7, 2012 at Caffe Luna in downtown Raleigh. The food was a sumptuous buffet, a smorgasbord of delights from chilled shrimp and smoked salmon, fruit and cheese appetizers to grilled chicken, grilled steak, and penne pasta with a choice of a cream sauce and spinach or a rich marinara with grated parmesan. Nobody went away hungry! Many thanks to Bibi Tucker Harrison for her hard work in pulling this event together.
RALEIGH, NC (NCR-SCCA) – The North Carolina Region was well-represented at the Carolina Collector Car Fest held in Raleigh at the State Fairgrounds over the weekend of November 11 – 13, 2011. Two members, Sam Fouse and Boz Marchi, graciously volunteered to display their cars, fresh from 1st place wins at the Goblins Go. Sam’s meticulously-prepared MX-3 was the hit of gear heads from all over, who marveled at the Dennis Shaw-built motor and the superb fabrication by Dan Robeson, both Triangle Chapter members. Boz Marchi’s lovely blue F500 attracted show-goers of all ages, quite literally from age five to seventy-five. The older gentleman even took notes. We may just see him at a future event!

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.
