On Sept 8-9 at Willow Springs our chapter will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of our first track event in 1972. The event will be our regular Race/Time Trial weekend but we have added an Alfa Romeo race group. We have former AROSC members driving/towing in from out of state. Some are missing other events that weekend to come out to race with us again. It is a "homecoming" for So Calif Alfa Romeo racers.
This deal has been in planning since last year. We have things for competition people and non competition people. Here are some reasons for you to come out:
• SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA GTA REUNION
• ALFA CUP FEATURE RACE BOTH DAYS
• ALL VINTAGE RACE-PREPARED ALFAS WELCOME
• SATURDAY TRACK DRIVE FOR ALL ALFA ROMEOS
• ALFA PADDOCK FOR RACE CARS
• ALFA CORRAL
• SATURDAY NIGHT DINNER W/ GUEST SPEAKERS
The host hotel for the event is The Palmdale Hotel. It has a big banquet room where we will have dinner Saturday night with a short program of how this race track stuff got started. Meet at the hotel bar, dinner starts about 6:30.
So come out to the track on Saturday, drive the track at noon, get a room at the Hotel, go to the banquet, have a ball.
For those of you not used to Willow Springs in the summer, yes it will probably be a little hot out in the desert. So plan for it. Bring xtra drinks, a hat and suntan lotion. There is a good, air conditioned, snack bar at the track where you can get lunch. Small kids and dogs are not good at a race track. At Willow Springs you are there in the middle of the paddock with loud race cars. You can look, touch, hear and smell real Alfa race cars.
Registration for the track is now open. See Bob's post below for the correct web address!!!
