Triangle Chapter Report - November 2015

The November Triangle Chapter meeting was a lively one, if only because we had some noisy interlopers who decided they just had to have part of the action even though they weren’t members of the club. Oh well, maybe they’ll join up after hearing our meeting discussion. LOL! (BTW, many thanks to Trish Deffenbaugh for quieting them down enough so I could be heard!).

Sign up To Purchase an NCR Specialty License Plate

We are excited to announce the development of a new NCR SCCA license plate that will be available for vehicles registered in the state of North Carolina!

Triangle Chapter Report - October 2015

The October meeting of the Triangle Chapter was short and lively.  But we had a couple of new members to welcome, so we went around the room, as is our fashion, and introduced ourselves. Joining the SCCA that very afternoon were Rodney King and Mark Bradley.  These guys have jumped in with both feet and bought themselves a race car, an E36 BMW, and are eager to get started.  They’ll be attending driver’s school in the spring, and in the meantime, they’ll be hanging out with us, looking for pointers and technical assistance readying their car. Good luck, guys! And welcome to the club!

Highlights of the 52nd SCCA Runoffs

Anna Crissman named SCCA's 
Worker of the Year
in Timing & Scoring

Congratulations to NCR’s Chief of Timing and Scoring, Anna Crissman, a 15-year member of the Club come January, for her well-deserved recognition in the specialty she does so well. We knew she was good; now everybody else does too!

And we have more of the stories of personal sacrifice and outstanding achievement, even in the face of adversity, that make the SCCA Runoffs famous…

Triangle Chapter Report - September 2015

The summer doldrums are over. The Triangle Chapter met on Wednesday, September 2, 2015, and judging by the turn-out, the members are eager for the fall season of racing to begin. But while the racers have been off elsewhere (we’ll get to that in a minute), the Solo crowd has been going at it full-bore. They had back-to-back events at MCAS Cherry Point, which, among other things, brought us member-to-be Mike Miller, who had nothing but good things to say about the event. BTW, Mike is a veteran autocrosser, long a member of Tarheel Sports Car Club, and the 2009 C Street NCAC champion. Impressive! Mike autocrosses an “NC” or 3rd generation MX-5, and he runs a Corvette Z06 in HPDE events. Welcome, Mike!

NC Region recruits new members at the IMSA Tudor event at VIR

Last weekend, August 21 – 23, the Marketing Committee for the Region tried a new tactic. Instead of trying to recruit new members at Car Shows and Cars-and-Coffee events, were the attendees have a wide variety of automotive interests, they decided to try reaching out to fans at the IMSA Tudor event at VIR. The thinking was, “Hey, these folks are ‘pre-qualified’. They paid money to see a sports car race. Maybe they’d like a chance to get even more involved.” So arrangements were made.

Good weather! Good food! Good friends! And vintage cars!

The North Carolina Region held its third annual picnic at North East Park in Gibsonville on Saturday the 8th of August and it was a blast. The weather couldn’t have been better, sunny, in the low 80’s, and no humidity to speak of, thanks to thunderstorms earlier in the week. The food was fabulous! Master Griller (and Chief Starter) James Buckberry (left) served up both hamburgers and hot dogs, with all the fixin’s. (I had two myself!) Barbecue chef (and Worker of the Year) Pete Romanowski prepared his most excellent pork and beans with green peppers and other secret ingredients, which literally got rave reviews. And everybody else brought an assortment of chips, potato salad, cole slaw, snacks, cookies, and even cake! We had over 35 people so there was lots of food. We ate well!
