Club Spring Mountain News - June 2014

Celebrate our 10th Anniversary: 2004 - 2014

Reflections on ten memorable years

Ten years have flown by since 01-AerialViewSMJune2014Spring Mountain partners purchased 193-acres of desert land with a 2.2-mile road course, a driving school with a fleet of 8 Corvettes, two tent structures and portable restrooms. In the early days a Mobile office building was utilized for classroom operations (with flushable toilets) while the first building was constructed and the track gradually expanded. The rest is history. A visionary's dreams led us to the destination we now call Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club. Reality has far surpassed the partners' expectations, and we are still striving to create a motorsports experience second-to-none in the world.

During this journey we have been thankful to work with the most incredible staff, many of whom have been with us since the beginning, and all who share our passion for providing exceptional products and services to our valued Club members, their families and friends. Russ Meads, our General Contractor, built the entire facility and paved the way through countless miles of local, state and federal red tape to make it happen. Russ, along with the phenomenal members of our staff, are the primary reason for our success.

02-clubOur accomplishments would never have been possible without the support of our loyal and enthusiastic Club members who encouraged our ideas and were alongside us every step of the way. Please join us in celebrating a remarkable ten years of growth, innovation and achievements at Club Spring Mountain! During the next few months the 10th Anniversary festivities will be announced and we look forward to seeing all of our Club members in attendance.

We are grateful for your support and encouragement, and thank you sincerely for believing in the dream. It's been an eventful ride and the best is yet to come as we make plans for the next ten years.

For complete details on our transformation read the historical timeline of Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club.

Surprise Homecoming at Spring Mountain

Memorial Day Surprise for Wife of Marine aired on TODAY show

Lieutenant Nathan Lowman is a 04-LtLowmanCorvette-loving Air Force Reservist who bought his wife Cindy (who also loves cars) a three-day Corvette performance driving course for her birthday while he was deployed overseas. With Cindy believing that Nathan was in Southeast Asia on a mission, he organized an elaborate plan to surprise her in person. Upon arrival at Spring Mountain, Cindy and her daughter were asked to participate in taping for some promotional material and answered a couple of questions on camera about their love of Corvettes and what brought them to the school. With a lineup of Corvettes in the background, Lt. Lowman surprised them by removing this helmet when being introduced as one of the driving instructors and his daughter jumped into his arms. A heartfelt moment for the Lieutenant and his family who had not seen each other in over 7 months.

In Remembrance

Raymond Alan Hofman, Charter Member, 08-RayHofman-1died February 18, 2014 at the age of 38 in a plane accident in Breckenridge, Texas. Ray was born June 20, 1975, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He graduated from Oak Park High School in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in 1993. Ray began his passion for the oil industry working as a roughneck with Red Hawk in Saskatchewan. His unique abilities were noticed by Packers Plus, which eventually brought him to Midland, Texas in May 2002. His talent, vision, and the support of those who believed in him led him to start Peak Completion Technologies in December 2003. His passion was not limited to entrepreneurship. Ray lived fast, as a racecar driver, a pilot, a cyclist, a horseman, a hunter, a musician, a photographer, a patriot, a competitor and a mentor. He was life. An avid collector, his largest collection of which he was most proud, were his friends and family.

Our deepest condolences are extended to Ray's family. He will be missed by his friends and by the staff at the Club.

Falb & Slusher emerge victorious in a Radical contest at Sebring

The PBOC 6-Hour "Race into the Night" 07-RadicalsatSebringevent at Sebring International Raceway was a smashing success for Charter Members John Falb and Todd Slusher, winners by a lap and a half over a field of 40 cars. Some of the rivals on the Florida track may have been expecting an easy victory due the make-up of their teams and the power and speed of their cars; however Falb and Slusher's Radical SR-3 1500, driven to perfection and supported by an expert race team, proved to be more than the competitors bargained for. Going up against the likes of Praga and Ligier was no easy task, as both cars are known for their high straightaway speeds and massive downforce design with extreme cornering ability. At the end of the day it was all Radical.

08-RadicalcheckeredIntothenightLeading the charge and setting the pole was Falb, followed up by Falb's tremendous start of the race in leading the pack into turn one and beyond at the green flag. Battling the track for hours in off- and on-again rain, 3-hours of daylight followed by 3-hours of darkness made the race all that much more challenging as the rain continued falling into the night, only letting up in the last hour of the contest. As the team progressed through the grueling competition it was a constant battle to stay at the front of the pack, falling behind at times after pit stops and yellow flags seemed to come up when the team was making a charge. With 1.5 hours to go the team with Falb at the helm was able to recapture the lead and hold on to it from there; however, not without high drama. With only 40 minutes left in the race and Slusher at the wheel suddenly all headlights went out, save two small LED's on the hood. Luckily, the quick thinking of crew chief Jeff Shafer got Slusher the critical information needed to get the lights re-started after 10+ minutes of driving in the dark. Once the lights were working properly it was a mad dash to finish as the fast approaching Ligier and Praga could smell blood in the water. Fortunately it was Slusher taking the checkered flag well ahead of P2 with a lap and half to spare.

The team was ecstatic with the victory as 09-ToddJohnPodiumatSebring-1it was a first for all involved, and even sweeter for the Radical West crew who had astonished everyone by changing engines and transmissions in record-setting time in order to get the car race-ready earlier in the day. Falb and Slusher commended the team, saying "This was indeed an outstanding effort, and we send out a big thank you to the Spring Mountain Race Club, the incredible race crew, John Morris, Ari Straus and all the membership for their support and well wishes in the team's effort to bring home the victory!"

In Memoriam - Bob Durso

10-BobDursoWe regret to report the death of Club Spring Mountain Member Robert A. "Bob" Durso, 62, of Milton Mills, who passed on Sunday, January 26, 2014. Bob was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts, April 3, 1951, and later lived in Kingston where he was a volunteer firefighter and paramedic. Bob served for a period of five years as a New Hampshire State Trooper. He had many interests, including racing his Corvettes, playing poker (he was a professional player) in Las Vegas and he enjoyed traveling in his motor coach in Alaska with his dogs Geno and Vinny. Bob's latest venture was owning and operating Jug Hill Stables in Milton Mills that brought him much enjoyment. Bob lived his life to the fullest and was a very generous man who will be missed by all who knew him.

Radical News

Radical Factory VIP's Visit - Test Drive an RXC on Race Weekend!

We are thrilled to announce that VIPs, race experts and factory-trained professionals from the Radical factory in England will be here for the official US unveiling of the Radical RXC and test drives of the hot new performance car at November's Club Race weekend. Don't miss this extraordinary opportunity to test the performance of the all-new Radical RXC on the track, and get driving advice from expert race professionals in the field. Joining us for next weekend's Club Radical Race are Phil Abbott, Co-Founder of Radical Sportscars and Technical & Racing Director; Nick Dove, Commercial Director; Christian Droop, Chairman; Paul Dujon, Export/Sales Coordinator/Photographer; Jamie Robinson, Radical Sales; and Roger Green, Marketing Manager. To lend support during the races, technicians James Abbott, Development Driver; George Tillson-Smith and Dan King, Senior Technicians, will also be on-hand for the festivities. Make your plans today to be here for November's exciting race weekend and say hello to the experts from the Radical factory!

Watch a video interview by Generation High Output with our own Simon Shepard, Director of Radical West, on the new RXC!

The Radical RXC is making a huge splash in the US. Last week the second RXC in the country was on exhibit at the Spring Mountain booth at SEMA in Las Vegas, generating national media attention from motorsports aficonados. Charter Member Jeffrey Cheng purchased the first RXC in the country and has tested it on the track. Jeffrey reports, "The RXC coupe has definitely lived up to my lofty expectations! ... Its pure bred race car heritage is evident in every aspect of its demeanor. ... Leave it to Radical to make something so ummmm ... radical!! ... It's legitimately the closest thing to a race car that will likely ever be driven on the street. Ferrari may claim that their Stradale and Scuderia are track inspired street cars but compared to the RXC they might as well be four door sedans! " The RXC is projected to be a huge hit...hence the slogan 'Resistance is Futile.'

Powered by a new Ford Mustang V6, its 1,800 pound curb weight allows blistering performance. The 3.7L Ford Duratec 37 Ti-VCT engine produces 380hp, accelerating 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 175mph. The car utilizes its own throttle bodies, exhaust and standalone ECU.

To set up a test drive of the Radical RXC on Friday or Saturday, November 22-23, please contact Simon Shepard via email simon@racespringmountain.com, or by phone 714-369-3361.

Yes, you'll be among the FIRST to run on the NEW ultra-smooth, wide and screaming fast 2.1-mile track extension, and at the September Club race weekend you will race on the longest road course ever run in our history...a union of THREE track configurations for speed, agility and heart-pounding excitement.

Experience the NEW 2.1-mile track through this video link, both clockwise and counter-clockwise!

Get ready for an ALL NEW track experience this season! After a momentous summer of development at our 313-acre facility, we're ready for the biggest and best season of the year. Club members will find MORE amenities than ever with our latest expansion.

* THE TRACK! The paving of the new 2.1-mile 40' wide track is complete and turned out very smooth, including an 81' elevation change high-speed spiral (similar to the famous Laguna Seca corkscrew) with a high bank, a blind ascent and extreme G-force turns. The all new road course also features 4 fast new straights, ranging from 700 to 2,200 feet. Spring Mountain is now the longest track in the Americas, with over 6-miles of road course for your driving pleasure.
* SKID PAD. You'll have more space to hone your skills with our new 300x500 square foot Skid Pad.
* CURBS. Beautiful new curbs with special features for safety and speed are painted and ready for action.
* RUNOFF. The back fill and runoff is now graded and compacted.
* TRAINING & EVENT CENTER. Our new multi-purpose, 7200 square foot Deluxe Training and Event Center is right on schedule and should be complete by mid-September...just in time for our first Performance Driving Classes on September 16.
* NEW ENTRANCE! A brand new entrance to the latest section of the track is paved and ready for entry off the Highway.
* INTERIOR ROAD. An all-new section of interior road connecting the original and new sections of the facility will be complete in time for the September Club Race weekend, September 21-22.
* GARAGES. The 14-bay garage building with Air Conditioning is now complete and nearly sold out.
* JACUZZI. The all-new 12-14 person Spa is finished, and will be heated for your use on a daily basis.
* CONTROL TOWER. Construction of the new control tower for the track extension is now under way with completion scheduled for September 15.
* RESIDENTIAL & COMMERCIAL LOTS. Development is continuing on the residential and commercial lots and we should be seeing maps and grading later this winter. Plans include the construction of Hotels, Restaurants, Gas Stations and more.
* THE LAKE! Plans are being finalized for an 8-acre, 10-foot deep lake for Paddle-boarding and Jetpack operations, complete with white sand and cabanas. We'll keep you posted on further developments here.

None of our progress would be possible without your enthusiasm and support, and we thank you sincerely for your confidence in us as we continue to provide a world-class Club experience for you and your guests.


GM Stingray Dealer Training Program

Spring Mountain Chosen as Site for Exclusive GM Dealer Training Program

We are proud to announce that Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club is the host of the Official 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Dealer Sales Academy. Less than one-third of Chevrolet's dealers across the country will be selling the redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray when sales begin later this year. The 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe will be shipped to eligible dealers in the third quarter and record sales are projected.

Spring Mountain is ready for the Dealers to experience a 1 ½-day extensive training program. Before the Dealers can sell the highly sought-after Corvette, they must first designate specialists in Stingray Sales and Service and attend our Training Program. Dealers began their training last week and the program is expected to run for 7 months, until March 2014.

As The Official High Performance Driving School of Chevrolet, our own Ron Fellows Performance Driving Schools are set to begin September 16, with classes to be held in the newly completed Training Center.


Club Race Weekend - September 21-22

Members to race on the longest track ever run in Club history

Get ready for some racing excitement this month! Join us for an action -packed race weekend this month, beginning with the Saturday and Sunday Drivers Meeting at 8:00 am, followed by 25 minutes of Orientation laps at 50 mph speeds (flashers required.) 25-minute sessions (Radicals, Sports Cars and non-racers) for practice, fun and qualifying will run throughout the day. Beginning with the September Race weekend, we will feature TWO separate Radical races...a rookie race and an SR3/Unlimited Contest. A Miata Race will be held on Saturday and Sunday, and we will have a Bracket Race on Saturday afternoon, pending participation.

To cover the new course we will add 5 additional flaggers, more corner worker stations and a Professional Race official from NARRA. Please note that no Club members will be involved in rule enforcement. For the FIRST time we will be tying all three tracks together and you'll be racing on a fast, easy-to-learn 4-mile course that has never been driven before! Your Thursday and Friday morning practice sessions will be on the all new 2.1-mile new road course, and on Friday afternoon (after the GM program) the 4-mile configuration will be open for your enjoyment all weekend.

Please note the Club Condominiums will not be available for rental on Thursday evenings for the duration of the Corvette Dealer program. Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday rentals are available by reservation through Erik Odegard, Members Coordinator. Please contact Erik for Thursday night room options. Members will have full use of the Clubhouse for administration, restrooms, pool, jacuzzi, fitness center and massages at any time during the GM program, even during the week. The only restriction is during actual meal times and just a portion of the clubhouse will be affected.

A new interior road is now being completed with direct access to the new section of the property from the front gate. This will allow members to travel directly from the original track to the new section. Chef Susan will be hosting member lunches on Thursdays and Friday on race weekends in the multi-purpose building adjacent to the new track.

Club Spring Mountain is proud to offer more member track days than any other Club in the country and to be the only Club providing use of the track every weekend. We have extended the track several times to provide more course variations, amenities and track use to the members. The members will always have the use of at least two of the four configurations nearly every weekend of the year, including the Radical Loop, the North Loop, the South Loop and the new East Loop.

Ladies, start your engines! One of the highlights of the September Club Weekend will be the Women's Radical Exhibition Race on Saturday, September 21 between Monica Carlson and Collette Brawner. Come out for the fun, invite your friends and support these passionate women racers in an exciting 15-minute wheel-to-wheel race contest between two beautiful contenders. We'll see you there!

Saturday night Banquet! Please join us for an evening of cocktails, dinner and camaraderie at the Clubhouse on Saturday night, with a sumptuous menu by Chef Susan. Buffet breakfasts are included in your race fees. Lunches are 15.00 with pre-registration or $20.00 at the event, and Dinner is $35.00 with pre-registration or $40.00 at the event.

For more information, please view the Saturday and Sunday race schedule. View the latest points standings for the Radical Race Series.

Check out the photos from the June 2013 Club Race weekend.

We look forward to seeing all of our members at this exciting Club weekend.


Radical News

Welcome Scott Sapio, Radical Cup 2013 and New Billing Program

Please welcome Scott Sapio, our new Radical Workshop Director, to the team. Scott grew up in South Jersey and moved west as a teenager. His love for engines began early, and at age 15 Scott built and modified Camaros and Trans Ams for the Grand Am racing series. Through high school Scott worked at auto dealers such as Porsche, BMW, Chevrolet, Aston Martin, and Mercedes. Most recently, after serving for 4 years as Fixed Operations Director at a GMC Dealer in Utah, Scott had his own business specializing in servicing and building exotic and custom cars. He sold his business and relocated to Las Vegas from Park City this year.

Scott has been a club racer since he was old enough to drive, both cars and bikes. After a bike accident at Laguna Seca in 2005, Scott converted to cars and bought a 1995 BMW M3. Scott currently has a modified 2008 BMW coupe, a 1995 V8LS powered M3, Harley Davidson Softail, and a custom truck he builds in his spare time. Single with no children, Scott's passions are travel and playing with cars.

One of Scott's contributions to Radical is a revolutionary new billing system, and beginning October 1 the program will officially go on line. Our Club members will benefit with faster billing, within a few days to a week from the work being performed, even on race weekends. The entire parts inventory will be on the system as well. It runs much like a dealership's computer system and is very accurate and simple.

Scott weighs in on his position at Radical, "I started with Radical West in May of this year and absolutely love it as well as all the members and staff. This is by far a world-class facility and I'm just happy to be a part of it."

Scott is your "go-to" guy for anything service-related with your Radical. He will be handling all of the communications between our members and the shop as far as work as well as running and overseeing the workshop functions, parts department and assisting Nicole with billing. Scott can be reached on his mobile phone at 702-721-6106, or via email scott@radicalwest.com.

Radical Cup 2013

Our traveling race series, the inaugural Radical Cup 2013, has been a huge success with many of our members touring the top race tracks in the US to compete for points and prizes. Last month's contest was held at our sister club, Autobahn Raceway. The Radical Cup championships and prizes, including the chance to race in the Radical Masters Euroseries and test a top European LMP2 car, will culminate in the season finale at another sister Club, Monticello Motor Club, Sept 6-8. Congratulations to our expert member racers, who made us proud in the series this spring and summer!
