I donıt have to remind you that it is here
Do I ? The 1999 Driving Season I mean. Weıve had several very
nice top down days already, the Utica Driving School and the Spring
Rally where the first driving events of the year, and there is
so much more to come.
The very cold and windy Utica Driving School was
a great success. Elsewhere
in this issue youıll find a full report on the event, I just
want to show some of the calculated results. The 14 drivers improved
the average time (2 laps with flying start and finish) by 6.:41
Seconds. (from 1:16.69 to 1:10.28) The most improved driver, Dave
Benni cut his time by 11.93 while Bill Mennell shaved off only
2.03 seconds. That is not to say that he was a bad driver/student.
It just shows that he was already a very fast driver (second place)
when we started.
Weıll report on the Spring Rally in next issue,
so I only have to remind you about the June 6th Utica
Autocross. This event will be very special because not only
will our regular Racersı and the Club Championship contenders
participate, we will also see a collection of Chicagoland T-Types
as we never hosted together before. George Goeppner coordinates
members street cars and several specialized T-Type racers. Please
call him at (708) 460-4982 if you own or know of one of these
great old MGıs. We will have a separate T-Type class for them
and I can only urge you to come and see the spectacle of these
MGıs, being driven the way Cecil Kimber had in mind Safety Fastı.
(that is if you not already planned to be there to participate
yourself). Please see the ad for details about the event. It promises
to be great !
See you at an event or in the next newsletter
and remember, "Drive It"
