Falb & Slusher Finish in the Top 5 at Monterey Grand Prix

Charter Members John Falb and Todd Slusher made their Tudor debut appearance last weekend at Laguna Seca's Monterey Grand Prix 2:40 minute race, sanctioned by IMSA. They drove the #16 BAR1 Motorsports - TOP1 Oil prototype, sponsored by Jet Suite andTodd-slusher-at-Monterey-Grand-PrixEdvisors.

John Falb comes with impressive credentials, from his start on motorcycles winning 5 third-place championships and completing 70 races; followed by winning the Radical Club championship two years in a row and the 2014 Radical Cup USA championship. Slusher-at-MontereyIn his first year of IMSA Prototype Lites competition he finished fourth overall with the Masters Championship. "Our plan was to run a clean race and give it our best. I think we did that." noted Falb. "The #16 Edvisors JetSuite car was dialed-in for race day and we had a great strategy going in," added John. "I'm pleased we were able to bring the car home in 5th. It was a great race and I can't wait for the opportunity to fight for a win!"

Todd Slusher, in his rookie year with no prior racing experience drove a Radical SR3 in the series and finished 2nd overall just missing first by a few points. He then began a series of endurance events such as the annual 25 Hours of Thunderhill where his team placed 1st in class and 3rd overall in a lineup of some 70 cars. After finishing 3rd overall in the Radical Cup it was the perfect time to go for a new series, Cooper Tires Prototype Lites series by IMSA. "Having this opportunity to race in the TUDOR United Sports Car Series in a PC car was not only amazing, it was the realization of a personal goal and dream," said Todd. "After having raced here a couple years ago in the Radical Cup, I knew someday I wanted to come back and experience the track again, I just had no idea it would be at this level or in a car of this magnitude."

Jeffrey Cheng's New Lamborghini Super Trofeo

Platinum member Jeffrey Cheng is the proud owner of the last remaining brand new Super Trofeo Gallardo race car in the world, Jeffrey-Chengs-New-Super-Trofeo-Gallardo-by-Brianbased on the Lamborghini Gallardo 570-4 street car.The Super Trofeo North America series, similar to the Ferrari Challenge with cars running at exactly the same specifications, has been run in Europe for many years and just started in North America two years ago.

Jeffrey was at the Club last weekend with a few friends, running his new car with the Speed Ventures group. He plans to keep the car intact, noting "Since my Gallardo is the last remaining un-raced, un-crashed and in perfect new condition race car - I don't intend to race it. I will keep it strictly as a fun track day car. However, I do have interest in participating in the Super Trofeo series and may purchase a new Huracan Super Trofeo to race in the series. Fortunately the Lamborghini series is only six races per year so the commitment isn't substantial!"

Flying helicopters is a challenging endeavor requiring superior skills and hours of dedication, but Jeffrey made it look easy. He and his flight instructor came in for dinner, stayed overnight in his home and flew over to the Clubhouse the next day for breakfast. Construction will begin on a helicopter garage soon. Next on Jeffrey's bucket list....we're wondering how he can top this!

Member News

Jeffrey Cheng moving into his Home at Spring Mountain Estates.

There are so many changes happening at Spring Mountain that it's almost impossible to stay New Home at Spring Mountain Motor Resortabreast of everything unless you are a regular visitor. During the past six months we've witnessed the completion of the sparkling lake and the addition of three new custom homes on the ridge. The first home belongs to our founder John Morris. The second house nearing completion belongs to Charter Member Jeffrey Cheng. We sat down with Jeffrey to ask him a few questions about his experience at Spring Mountain and his new custom home.

SM: It seems like yesterday that you joined the Club. How long has it been?

Jeffrey: Unbelievably it's been over four years and yet it seems like it was yesterday. I have to thank Doug Ramirez for dragging me out here with my GT-R. 24 hours was all it took to convert me. I literally drove onto the property in my GT-R on a Friday morning and became a member, bought a used Radical and entered my first rookie race 24 hours later! And to top that off I finished in 3rd place! That was truly an exciting moment and I knew this was going to be a very special place for me.

SM: Hard to believe it's been that long already. So what specifically draws you to Spring Mountain and makes it such a special place for you?

Club Spring Mountain, FriendsJeffrey: Whenever someone asks me about Spring Mountain I describe it as a "Disneyland for adults." From the moment you pass through the front gates it's like you're in another world where there are no problems, no stress and no drama. It's not only my love for cars and racing but it's also my love for many of the members I've met and the friendships I've forged. You'd be hard pressed to find a better group of down to earth, honest, and sincere people anywhere in the world. It's just a place where you can really feel comfortable and at ease.

SM: So now we see that you've really made a substantial investment into the track in the way of a new custom home next to John's beautiful house. What inspired you to build a new custom home here?

Jeffrey: I am very fortunate to share my life with a wonderful woman who fully supports my interests and hobbies. In fact she even takes it a step further and drives her own Radical! While she may not be interested in racing she certainly loves to drive lap after lap after lap in her car. Because she knows how important the track is to me and also shares some of the passion I have for racing, it was the ideal place for us to build a vacation home. Really a home away from home. We both look forward to spending at least a week a month at the track if not longer.

SM: That's truly a special woman you have there Jeffrey. To be supportive and to share in one of your true passions is not an easy combination to find. So can you tell us a little more about this new custom home?

Jeffrey: As is the case with most projects this one has evolved a hundred times over. It was never Jeffrey, Jessica and Liana at Spring Mountain Motor Resortintended to be quite so large (or so wide I should say ... ha ha). The original plan was for a house around 3000 square feet with an attached hangar for my plane. Nothing more. But once we started to design it we continued to add elements - a man cave, more guest rooms, a separate casita, an office, a pool, a RV garage (still to be added) and a larger hangar (in case I decided to buy a larger plane). What was originally intended to be about 7000 to 8000 sf of total covered space (both livable and non-livable) turned into close to 14000 sf of covered space. You know it's gotten out of hand when you realize your vacation home is nicer than your primary residence!

SM: That is quite a place! Can you give us a little more detail about some of the aspects of the house?

Jeffrey: The house consists of a Great Room which includes the living room and kitchen in one. As you know people tend to congregate in the kitchen so we decided to make the kitchen area one large open room. It has very high ceilings which gives it an awesome "open" feeling. A major attraction on one side of the great room is an ornate spiral stair case which leads up to my office and a viewing deck. Both face the track and have beautiful unobstructed views. There are seven other rooms in the house consisting of a TV room, playroom, master bedroom, baby's room, and various guest rooms. There is also a separate casita with its own entrance attached to the hangar.

SM: That is a very large hangar...it looks like a small jet could fit in there!

Jeffrey: The hangar actually ended up being larger than anticipated. Both the contractor and I seem to have a lapse in our memories as to why the opening of the hangar ended up being 50 feet wide! My plane's wingspan is only 39 feet and the larger plane I was considering acquiring has a 42 foot wingspan. So we could have easily shrunk the width of the hangar by at least five or six feet. Why it ended up being 50 feet is still a mystery to us. All I know is that I'm very grateful to John for allowing me to land my plane at the track and to even build a hangar attached to my house. Where else in the world are you going to be able to do something like this? It really is something almost unimaginable!

SM: Well Jeffrey it certainly seems like you've thought of everything in building your dream house. It looks great and we can't wait to see the finished product!

Club Spring Mountain Member's Plane and Car

Check out Jeffrey's beautiful new home next time you visit the Club. You can't miss it along the ridge with the dramatic mountain backdrop. Thanks for improving the property values around here, Jeffrey!
