MARFC Goes Road Racing!

August 2, 2012 2012 MinutesUncategorized

July 29th  saw the club go “Road Racing” for possibly the first time in club history as we were guests of the track on their biggest weekend of the year, “Vintage Weekend”. We had at least a dozen or so members present for a day just to relax, walk around and enjoy all the different views and types of racing the venue has to offer. The MARFC Helmet Bag went to Toronto Ontario driver Richard Paterson who is actually a native of New Zealand. Richard  won the Trans Am Challenge on Saturday with a car that is one level below what normally races in that classification and he just plain put on a driving clinic on the 1.5 mile 12 turn road course. It was a great day to roam around and see so many vintage road racers and cars. This is one event that you won’t want to miss out on in 2013 and suggest that you check out the Waterford Hills facility as you won’t be disappointed as the facility is extremely fan friendly with ample seating areas, concessions, restrooms, and a very affordable ticket price. Many Thanks go out to MARFC P.R. Director Rand Thompson for setting this event up and for taking the Prez for a really cool ride around the track in his vintage Mercury Capri. Additionally a big Thank You goes out to Kathy Arnold and Joel Hershoren from the Waterford Hills Raceway for their hospitality and for having the club out to this beautiful facility.
