Hello VMSCer’s

It has been a while since the last President’s message. Apologies all around for that one! It has been a busy season for sure. Twenty-three events for the 2017 season including the Friday Night Series co- sponsored with Western Speedway to remember our friend Curtis Wrobel.

All of our dates are set for next year:

•      Winter Series I                  January 14, 2018
•      Winter Series II                  February 18, 2018
•      Winter Series III            March 11, 2018
•      Driver Training                  March 25, 2018
•      Spring Series I                  May 5, 2018
•      Time Attack I                  May 20, 2018
•      Elements Autocross school      June 17, 2018
•      Spring Series II                  June 24, 2018
•      Spring Series III            July 15, 2018

•      Summer Series II            August 12, 2018
•      Team Enduro & BBQ            August 26, 2018
•      Time Attack II                  September 8, 2018
•      Summer Series III            September 16, 2018
•      Summer Series IV Fundraiser      October 7, 2018

Next General Meeting will be the Elections for the Executive Board. I would like thank the executive for their work this year, and all of our members who come out to volunteer at the events. From doing tech in the parking lot to tossing cones around the track and staying late to clean up, it all helps.

Thank you.

I propose to make some changes to the Executive Board this year. These will need to be voted on of course, and if passed eventually amended into our club bylaws. I would like to see the Club Competition and Region Competition Director’s positions be changed to read as Club Competition Directors. If my motion passes, there will be two bodies filling this role. Of the 14 events above, each co-Director will handle 7 events. The task of Club Competition Director is a huge role in our organization. It is my hope that spreading the work load will keep the energy level up, and not place a huge burden on any one member. Now that burden will be on two members! As far as voting on the Executive Board (the Regional Competition Director currently has a vote if there is no Past President position) – the senior member of the two Co-Competition Directors will have the vote. Senior being years with the club, not age.

I also plan on presenting a motion to change the name of our FTD trophy to remember our friend Curtis Wrobel who passed away earlier this year. The trophy would simply be known as the Curtis Wrobel Memorial Award for Speed.

I hope you’ll come out to the General Meeting on October 4th at Cedar Hill Rec Center 7pm, support your club and those who volunteer to make it better. This weekend we have a double header! Time Attack Saturday am and Autocross Sunday afternoon!! See you there!

Jason Gunn

Be sure to update your timing software with the latest version -- we discovered a scoring error at our last team event:

This might be the most fun event of the year.
Teams of three or 4 drawn out of a hat. Couple practice laps. Then do 3 or 4 laps (cafeful not do do an extra lap) , combine the team times, lowest time wins.
Bring an extra $5 for the BBQ and prizes after the event.

It would be in stASP because of the larger intercooler.  However, anytime the backseat is removed the car moves to Street Modified.  This car will be classed in stSM.
