Where did January go? We were just starting to get to where we could remember to write 2014 instead of 2013 and now January is gone. Can you believe it is already February? The 2014 ECR calendar is filling up fast. Here is a quick recap of last month…
We launched the new web site. “Out with the old web site and in with the new” is what David Cook said; so Brian E. Smith with Autopia Motorsports designed and developed the all new Eagles Canyon Website. It looks amazing. (new photos, brighter colors and easier to navigate). There also plans in February to add a client and member area along with online forms to make it easier for you to keep apprised of what is going on at the track and fill out track day paperwork right on the website. We appreciate your input so please continue to send us your best Eagles Canyon track pictures and videos for our use on the website, newsletter and promotional materials. If you see Brian at the track, make sure and tell him job well done.
Last month we had the perfect weather for our January Open Track Day. We had about 30 cars out and as people realized what a nice day it was more people started showing up. All in all it was a successful and fun track day. Unfortunately, the February 2nd track day was canceled due to weather but it should be officially rescheduled soon. Keep an eye on the new calendar on the web site for upcoming track dates and events.
February 22nd – Open Track Day
This will be a great event as many of you will want to be getting out of the house after the past weeks of cold weather. It’s time to shake off the lethargy of winter and bring out your favorite street or track car to have a little fun. As always, the track day is open to all levels of drivers and instructors will be available.
February 28th – LeMons Test and Tune
LeMons is back and ‘bad’ as ever. So in the spirit of helping teams attempt to actually finish the race on March 1st and 2nd we will be opening up the track to all of your heaps and jalopies. Since we know all of you are poor, we will help by only charging you $150 for the entire day. Sign up here!
March 1st / 2nd – LeMons Race
The 24 hours of LeMons (www.24hoursoflemons.com) annual race is coming… you have been warned. Endurance racing for $500 cars. It’s not just an oxymoron; it’s a breeding ground for morons. It’s where Pintos and Maseratis battle to lap a Le Car. If you have never been to a LeMons race this is a must see, must participate type of event. There will be some teams that weekend that could very well put you to good use so I highly recommend adding it to your schedule. Come out and see people you actually know as many of the ECR local regulars are putting together cars for the race. Be looking for a full report of coverage for the race in March.
March 8th / 9th – Porsche Club of America
The second weekend of March is the PCA event. Please visit http://mav.pca.org to check out the event. The Third weekend of April we have the Sunburn Grand Prix Sunburn Grand Prix
