Zone Rep Report August 2014

Here we are in September! I hope everyone’s had a great summer and that you’re making plans for more PCA involvement for the rest of the year. During the third weekend of July, I went to Farmington, NM, to join my fellow Roadrunners for a weekend of autocrossing at the Sunray Casino parking lot. This is always a treat because the parking lot is HUGE and the drivers always get a lot of seat time. I would have taken some pictures but I was busy either driving or helping out as a corner worker.

Then in early August, I drove to Amarillo to join the Llano Estacado Region members for their monthly breakfast at Furr’s Cafeteria. For such a small Region, they always get great participation and I was pleased to hear that some of their members have been participating in West Texas Region’s events.

As of this writing, I’m planning to attend and help out at Rocky Mountain Region’s PCA Club Race in mid-August. I attended the Club Race and HPDE at High Plains Raceway last year and I’m really looking forward to going over there again. If you’ve never been to High Plains, I highly encourage traveling to Byers, CO, for the Club Races. Once you take a look at that spectacular track, you’ll want to drive on it!

To continue on the topic of PCA Club Races, Intermountain Region will host their Club Race and HPDE on the weekend of September 20th and 21st. I wasn’t able to attend the event last year so it’ll be fun to join everyone this year. Intermountain Region has HPDE’s earlier in the summer where the drivers get to use about half of the track each time. So for the HPDE in September, the full track is used.

Before the month of September is over, I’ll travel to French Lick, IN, with the Parade Committee. Michelin will be on-hand and we’ll go to the site for the Parade 2015 Autocross and Drive & Compare.

I’d like to extend a big thank-you to the Regions that have submitted articles for the Panorama’s “From The Regions” column. It’s great to read about their events so keep contributing those articles! If your article doesn’t make it into one issue of Pano, it will probably make it into the next issue.
