I am el presidente of our local car club!

Postby ten2doyle102 » Wed Apr 06, 2011 12:43 pm

Well, I have a feeling that its going to be a rough ride, but I was chosen to be the president of the local car club, FVSCC. The Fox Valley Sports Car Club has been around for about 50 years now so it's a pretty big thing.... just hard to believe that its me that will be overseeing everything.

That being said.... you must now refer to me as..... master.

Remember, it is better to be seen as a dick but respected than a nice guy that is walked all over.

No, we haven't but perhaps we might look into that if there was enough interest. Problem is that its SOOOO expensive to run there...

WI needs another BlackHawk farms closer to me.

Yeah, I know RA is really expensive...someday I'll run there. BHF is such a perfect track for us. How long of a drive is it for you?

2.5Hrs. Realistically, if I were to run there, i'd like to trailer the car there since I'd hate to break something and then foot that towing bill to get it home...

That's not bad, its 2 hours for me. I always trailer the car to events for that reason. I wouldn't feel comfortable going all out knowing I had to drive it 2+ hours home at the end of the day.

If the car can't make it there and back, it isn't ready for the track.

Or if you run over debris and blow a tire, or go off track and crack your oil pan, or any number of other uncontrollable factors come into play...
