The Final Autocross of the Season
The final NSCC autocross of the season brought out seventeen racers to the Tire Rack in South Bend, Indiana on Saturday September 24th. The weather was beautiful, the track was hot and the air was filled with the sounds of squealing tires and fast engines. Shown above are six of the eight NSCC members who received a certificate for their fine driving skills in their racing classification. Shown from left to right; Rick Craig, Debbie Monnier, Frank Punzio, Rich Guerine, Doug Stone and Kevan Bates. Not shown; Geoff Harlow & Tracy Hoffmann.
Auto crossing truly is an adrenalin rush. If you have never tried it, you owe it to yourself to experience just how much fun you can have in your Corvette. Any member who races is willing to help you get started so feel free to ask someone about auto crossing at the next membership meeting and plan to join us next year.
A good time is always had by all when the monthly membership meeting is held at Lake Forest Sportscars. Rick Mancuso, our gracious host and owner of the dealership, treated us to Ferrari racing stories. No Corvette stories but we will give him a pass since he is one of the three founding fathers of our club. The cars on the showroom floor were fantastic, and so were the prices!
It's not surprising that Jerry Mulick, our NCM Master Ambassador, was the first to locate our new banner in the parking lot of the National Corvette Museum. Jerry found it in front of the south side of the building to the left of the main entrance. It's a great location.
Our banner will remain there for one-year at which time it will be taken down and given to us. If you visit the NCM be sure to send the webmaster a picture of yourself or your party standing under it.
NSCC Annual Family Picnic
NSCC members and their families enjoyed burgers, brats, hot dogs and an abundance of side dishes and deserts on Saturday August 13 at the Twin Lakes Recreation Area in Palatine. The kids enjoyed smashing a Corvette piñata filled with candy while some of the adults got a little wet with the water balloon toss. You can see all the pictures by clicking here.
