2014 Schedule and Glen Events

Apr 4, 2014  

Hi;
Sorry for the delay in getting this yearís schedule out but we have run into a few challenges. More on that in a minute.

Opening Day Drive to the Glen: Saturday April 12th we have time reserved at 10:30am for laps around the glen. Three paced laps around the Glen is only $25.00. We have participated in the past and had a fun time (when it isnít snowing!). I will be leaving from the gas station at the corner of Routes 96 and 38, Owego, at 09:00am. If you would like to caravan to the track let me know so we do not leave anyone behind. If you are attending on your own we can meet up at the track entrance a little after 10:00.

June 26th Ė 29th is the Glen's IMSA 6hr Race Weekend. This is a great weekend to get up close and personal with some of the most exotic race cars there are. The Glen has offered us a $10.00 per ticket discount. As in years past I will be attending and bringing the grill and ez-up for tailgating during the 6hr race. If you are interested please let me know.

Lastly is the schedule. We have lost use of the TC3 lots. That has left a hole in our schedule for July. Unfortunately the Glen region has also lost TC3 as well as Arnot mall, Corning CC and the Shops in Ithaca. We are looking at a few locations and may be able to come up with something for July. We are also looking at sharing more OOR events with the Glen Region. On July 13th the Southern Tier Corvette Club has the track at Cherry Valley rented. Several of us have traveled up there and run with them. If there is enough interest in traveling we may try to work something out on that date with them. As soon as things are finalized Iíll get the info out. I can confirm that we have SUNY set for May 25th, June 7th (Four hour Test-n-Tune with instructors available) June 8th, and August 9th and 10th. Likewise we are set for September 28th at the Shops in Ithaca.

Thank you for your support.

2014 Schedule

Mar 5, 2014  

Hi;
We’re getting close to having the schedule finalized.  Although I do not have contracts in hand, I do have verbal commitments for 3 dates at SUNY Binghamton and The Shops at Ithaca Mall. 
May 25th               Sunday                 SUNY
June 7th                Saturday              SUNY  Possible 4 hr test-n-tune or Learn it/Drive it school
June 8th                Sunday                 SUNY
July  19th               Saturday              TC3  Not yet confirmed
August 09            Saturday              SUNY (With Southern Tier Corvette Club)  Note: The Corvette Club event will be Sunday
Sept 28th              The Shops at Ithaca Mall
Additionally we will schedule two Out of Region Events with the Glen Region.

I would like to ask if anyone is interested in being an event chair.  I will need to submit your name when I submit to the SCCA for the insurance certificates.
Secondly, is there an interest in a school or test-n-tune on Saturday June 7th? 

And finally, the Glen’s opening weekend is April 12-13 (providing there’s no snow).  Again as in years past our region has been invited to reserve a time on Saturday to take a couple of pace laps.  Cost is $25.00 per car. 

Let me know any comments or interest in any of the above.

Thank You
Darryl


Mall Show help

Feb 24, 2014  

A plea for help;
This weekend is the Speedworld Show at the Oakdale Mall.  We will again have a table with our information and videos.  The show runs Fri-Sun 7pm.  So far I have heard from one person about helping out.  I cannot be there Friday during the day if anyone is available.  Even if you only have a few hours it would be appreciated.  It is a chance to share our sport with others.  Please let me know if you can help out.

I'm working on the schedule as this is written and will have more information as soon as possible.

Lastly.  I went ice racing a couple of weeks ago with the NY Ice Racing Association at Waneta Lake.  They are run by Casey, one of the Glen Regions Kart guys.  It was a lot of fun and for 50.00 I had over an hour of seat time.  Given the changing weather conditions their schedule is always changing so information is hard to come by.  I was in a neon with studded snows on the front.  A real challenging but fun day.  If you want more information drop me a line.  There is a little info at: 
http://www.chumpcar.com/ice-racing/events.php.  

And here is a video of my seat time.

Another plea

Jan. 20, 2014  

Hi all;

With the party approaching I really need you to confirm your attendance.  Currently we do not have enough people to hold our party.  I have some door prizes as well as great awards for the class winners.  Our class winner awards are too big to ship so you'll have to attend.  We're at DeGennaro's on Saturday the 8th of Feb.  If you can make it please let Brian or I know as soon as possible.  I'll be leaving for Florida and the Rolex 24 this week, so don't wait..  Remember, the dinner is free and you only need be a friend to attend. 

See you in February.  Darryl

Awards Party Set for February 8th

Dec 2 , 2013  

SAVE THE DATE!  Saturday February 8th will be our year end party and awards.  Although the details are still in the works, we will be at De Gennaro’s at 300 Hill Ave in Endicott.  There were 16 class winners so we will be handing out a lot of hardware.  Results are posted on our site.  All are invited, not just class winners.  I’m working on a few door prizes so c’mon out and see what you may win.  More information to come, but mark your calendars now!


Season Recap

Oct 30 , 2013  

The 2013 has ended and were ready to celebrate.  The season results are now posted.  Congratulations to the 16 class winners and Our PAX winner Rob Pingarelli.  We are waiting to hear on the Glen Regions awards party date so as not to conflict with them.  Currently were looking at a Saturday in January or February.  A location has not been set but once we have a date we’ll look for a location.  Possibly we’ll be at the same location as last year.  More information to come.

If anyone is going to the Rolex 24 in Daytona let me know.  I’ll be there and would love to meet up.  Congrats to our winners and Thank You to everyone for a great 2013 season.
Darryl
