In This Edition
Greetings from THSCC!
Summer motorsports are in full swing and we have some exciting events coming up. This weekend on June 27th & 28th we will be holding our 11th annual V Foundation for Cancer Research Benefit Autocross. This event is a great tradition within our club, and we are extremely proud that over the years with our charity autocross events we have raised over $50,000 for cancer research. We look forward to continuing the tradition this year, so please join us and enjoy two days of autocross at our favorite Danville Regional Airport. As always, we will have great raffle prizes thanks to our sponsors, with all proceeds from the event going directly to the JImmy V Foundation.
Also, mark your calendars for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship event at VIR on August 22-23. This is a great spectator event and opportunity to watch some professional racing at a great track. There are some exciting supporting races throughout the weekend as well, so we encourage you to make a weekend of it and bring the entire family. As a special bonus, we are working on some perks for attending THSCC members. Look for these details in the July newsletter and on our club website soon. For more information about the TUDOR event and to buy your tickets, please visit VIRnow.com.
We hope you're having a great summer so far and look forward to seeing you at an event soon! If you have any questions about any of our events as always please don't hesitate to email me at the link below.
May saw the return of the once-every-other-year-except-when-we-forget tradtition of the all female autocross school we affectionatly (and politically incorrectly) call the "Chick School". Put on by 3 spectacular long time active contributors to THSCC, this event was very well received and much fun was had by all. As in years past, no male instructors or staff were allowed on site. We'd like to take a brief moment to than Chris Peterson, Gwen Habenicht, and Jennifer Bedell for the hard work they put into this, along with the sponsors from the event: Pet's Companion Inn, Atomic Empire, Cline Hall Insurance, and Steps for Recovery.
THSCC held the fourth rallycross of the year at the Wilson Fairgrounds on June 14. The temperature was high and the turnout was low but we had a great time anyway. A few folks left at lunch because of the heat but diehards stayed the entire day. The Duff guys brought out their Sentra with several cans of spray-paint and a sign that said “Paint this Car”. Kids both young and old had a great time painting it. Kevin Allen and Ray Metts competed for the fast times of the day as usual. Thanks to all who braved the heat to attend and to the folks who setup and broke down including Drew Sheffield and Nathan Miller who drove all the way from the other side of Charlotte; Kevin Allen and Ray Metts who set a fantastic course, Pete Guthrie, Ricky Beam who drove the THSCC bus and stayed over on Saturday night; and Charlie Guthrie who spent his Sunday evening on the tractor clearing up the ruts that we made during the day. Our next event will on July 12 at the VIR Euro rally course. We’re expecting a great turnout and a fun event. It’ll be smooth and fast.
We just finished up our HPDE event at Carolina Motorsports Park, and if you weren't there, you missed a great event. The weather was particularly nice for this time of year in South Carolina, and everyone got plenty of open track time due to somewhat thin run groups. If you have never run CMP before, definitely put it on your list for next year because it is a very fun track, and we want to share the experience with as many folks as possible.
Registration is open for our John Mullis Memorial HPDE in September on VIR Full Course, so sign up early and often and tell your friends! We will also have another 2-hour Kart Enduro on Saturday night as well and there are still team spots open. We do expect both the HPDE and kart enduro to fill up, so be sure to register up early if you plan on attending. We will be doing deferred payment for both events as usual.

See you at the track!
