The Michigan Automobile Racing fan Club is a non-profit organization which is basically a social club for all those interested in, or actively involved in auto racing. The primary purpose of the club is to promote auto racing in and around Michigan and to honor those who have been successful in any aspect of auto racing.
Club meetings are held monthly October through April and feature racing films, guest speakers, and tours of racing facilities in and around Michigan. During the racing season, Fan Club days are held at member tracks. During these Fan Club Days, members staff a booth where you may become a MARFC member yourself. To show our appreciation to the host track, a drivers name is randomly picked to receive a MARFC helmet/uniform bag.
Our Premier event of the year is the Annual Awards Banquet and Dinner Dance where we honor drivers and others for their achievements as they pertain to auto racing. the list of honorees form previous years consists of a who’s who in auto racing. A sampling of those guests are Gordon Johncock, Bobby Unser, Benny Parsons, Jim Chapman, Herb Fishel, Michael Kranefuss, and of course many local track champions too numerous to mention.
With the exception of the banquet, all meetings are free to members. On Fan Club Days, members are admitted free to the host track by showing their current MARFC membership card.
The cost of annual membership dues are $15.00 for single person, or $20.00 married couple or family (2 adults and all children up to age of fifteen). Payment of dues entitles you to a membership card, window decal, and a monthly newsletter.
Memberships run from January 1 of each year and expire on December 31 of the same year. e.g. January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2005.
