While the weather may have been cold, a large group of over 40 members came out to support this event. After a quick briefing in the clubhouse everyone headed outside to the course. Things got started with some “parade” laps around the course laid out in the grass inside north course.
Even spectators in their SUVs were allowed to tour the course. The course was then opened up for drivers to begin testing the limits. 17 different drivers tried their hand at the challenging layout which included unique elements that quickly got nicknames such as “The Wall of Death” and of course “The Jump”.
Times were not tracked in this first time event but the day still had plenty of memorable moments such as Rob Weidenaar showing us all how to take The Jump and Brian Helmintoler getting it done with no brakes. With the first event completed everyone felt this was a ton of fun and plans are already in the works to improve the course and the event.
This series will continue every other Saturday with the next event scheduled for January 21 at 10:00 AM. Other dates: • Feb 4 • Feb 18 • March TBD
