The latest BS from Bill!
Busy, Busy, Busy
June and July were SO BUSY! June started with agreat weekend for our Charlie Campbell at the Mid-Ohio Majors. He won FP in his Miata in the rain on Saturday and was second on Sunday. Things weren’t as rosy at Watkins Glen. After qualifying over 2 seconds faster than everyone in FP, his engine soured on Saturday and he pulled in after 4 laps and couldn’t run on Sunday. Things turned around in July when he got a win and a second at the last Majors at New Jersey Motorsports
Park. This gave Charlie the NorthEast FP Championship and placed him 4th Nationally. You can root him on at the National Championship Runoffs, Sunday, September25th at Mid-Ohio.
We have been having some great Solos this summer, when it doesn’t rain and a fantastic variety of cars. Can you believe David Strong’s MG ZT-T? Just unreal! I think we have the largest Novice class I can remember too. Ken Jones is learning how to push that DelSol. Just great competition.
In June we expected with Drew Bickel missing thatDavid Griffin would win PAX, but it was a nice surprise to see Andy Ferrara winning FTD! Pushkar Joshi hasreally come along too. It was about time Bruce Wesley came back to LES to show off his GT350. He and Jon Rausch had quite a competition going for both FTD and most spectacular finishe! The July event was almost like old timers’ day with Bruce being joined by Gene Kern and Bill Snyder. Somehow Bruce and Bill live near each other down in Mercer, but had never met before. We also had 4 CAM entries and Henry Young brought out the Factory Five Cobra that he has been working on for how many years.

"Solo" is the name used within the SCCA for Autocross.
Solo competition is defined as low speed, participant driving competition where one car at a time negotiates a prescribed course outlined with traffic pylons as quickly and cleanly as possible. During a run, a driver and his/her car are pushed to the limit. A time penalty is added to drivers' times when they hit an outlining pylon. While competing against the clock on the course, a driver is also competing against other drivers in his/her performance category.
Rallies have traditionally included everything from extremely competitive two person teams to families out for an afternoon drive. There is usually a lunch break at the midpoint, and rallies usually end at a spot where food and beverage is available. Regardless of how competitive you are, rallying is a lot of fun if you like to spend time in your car, see some terrific scenery, and and spend time with congenial people.
