The Bracket-style race for Sports cars and Radicals will be held on Saturday (depending on participation.).

Let us know right away if you can attend this event, which will include a mandatory Driver's meeting at 8:00 am on both Saturday and Sunday. Please note immediately after the Driver's meeting a special 25-minute 50 mph maximum orientation-style lapping session will be held so our members can become familiar with the track configuration. The Orientation session will be followed by back-to-back run sessions all day, a Miata, Radical and Bracket-style race on Saturday and a Miata and Radical race on Sunday. Chef Susan DeLisle has a delicious menu planned for the weekend festivities and a celebratory Clubhouse dinner on Saturday night, February 16.

Mandatory SCCA Seminar. Please note that this Friday, March 15, prior to the race weekend we will be holding an SCCA licensing seminar for all racers that do not currently hold or have ever held a racing license.

Starting this race weekend we are asking all racers to bring to the track a copy of their racing license. We will keep a copy of your license on record. According to our rules one of the eligibility requirements to race in the series is that a driver "Hold or have held (within the last 5 years) a regional level or higher racing license from an approved accredited organization such as SCCA, NASA, etc OR can show proof of completion of a racing program from an accredited racing school"

Rick Malone, Head Driving Instructor, will be hosting the seminar and will give a one hour class Friday morning and another session in the afternoon (please contact us for exact times.) There will be no charge for the seminar and the program will be conducted again in April and May for those who are not able to attend this weekend. This is a great opportunity and we encourage all drivers to take advantage of these seminars. Completion of this seminar will satisfy the minimum requirements to race.

Track Expansion Project News

We are happy to report that great progress is being made on the track expansion project at the Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club facility this month. The initial rough grade of the 2.1-mile road course has been completed, and bulldozers are constructing a mountain with an 8-10% banked bowl and a drop of nearly 100 feet for racers and track enthusiasts to experience.

The project guarantees more extended road course variations with the longest configuration at 6.1 miles, making Spring Mountain the longest track in the country and second longest in the world. Russ Meads, General Contractor reports there will be a total of 11064 feet of track added at 40 feet wide and 464,160 square feet of new track surface. With the 300' x 500' skid pad a total of 614,160 square feet of new asphalt will be added to the facility. The new track extension will be 40 feet wide and extremely smooth, due to a special emollient mixed with the asphalt to provide more grip and a smooth surface.

Along with the grading of the track, 57 large (approximately 110' x 100') residential lots, many with expansive views of the facility, mountains, sunsets and 8-acre lake, have been designated for future sale at the perimeter of the property line. We are expecting a tentative subdivision map to be recorded with the County in July.

Plans are also in place for the 30-acre commercial property in front of the facility to include a Gas Station, various restaurants, a hotel and more.

************************************************************************************************

Major Track Expansion Project

Spring Mountain to have longest track in the U.S.

Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club embarked on a massive expansion project last month, including over 2 miles of new track surface, a 150,000 square foot skid-pad, a multi-purpose building for Cadillac school operations, a sewer and water plant and more.

The track expansion is located on a new 120-acre parcel acquired last year, and can be run separately or as part of the existing road course. John Morris, Owner and CEO, states "This project has been years in the planning stages, and we are thrilled it's finally under way. Between two new high-speed long corners with positive banking, plus an intense bowl banked at 8-10% with a drop of nearly 100 feet, our clients, students and club members are going to love driving the new challenging and exciting track configurations."

The project guarantees more extended road course variations with the longest configuration at 6.1 miles, making Spring Mountain the longest track in the country and second longest in the world. Russ Meads, General Contractor reports there will be a total of 11,064 feet of track added at 40 feet wide and 464,160 square feet of new track surface. With the 300' x 500' skid pad a total of 614,160 square feet of new asphalt will be added to the facility. The new track extension will be 40 feet wide and extremely smooth, due to a special emollient mixed with the asphalt to provide more grip and a smooth surface.

"Slow and steady wins the race." The track expansion project, originally set to begin last year, was delayed by strict governmental regulations to protect the desert tortoise. The tortoise permit was finally received from the U.S Department of Fish & Wildlife, clearing the way for improvements on the 120-acre parcel adjacent to the track acquired from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM.) Construction on the tortoise fence is complete, and grading has begun, after clearing the land of any remaining tortoises. The rough clearing of the track will be completed within the first week, noticeable from the air, and ready for tours within the month. Changes will be completed this Spring.

Plans are in place for subdividing a portion of the facility into residential lots this summer, and we will keep you apprised of further developments. In addition a tentative subdivision map is being prepared for the commercial property in front of the facility to include a Gas Station, restaurants, a hotel and more.

Our progress is only possible with your support and enthusiasm, and we thank you sincerely for your business through the years. We're looking forward to serving you now and in the future as Spring Mountain continues to grow and develop into the finest motorsports facility in the world.

Chevrolet News

Sleek New Models and Contest Winners

2014 Stingray Unveiled

The hot new 2014 Corvette C7 Stingray was revealed on January 13 at the Detroit Auto Show, and a month later the car made its debut in Canada. Hosting the Stingray's Canadian reveal was Kevin Williams, president and managing director of General Motors of Canada, and Corvette Racing legend Ron Fellows.

At the event, Ron was asked how the new C7 stacks up against previous generations of Corvettes, and he reported "The New C7 Stingray is a fantastic extension of the years we've been in racing full time with the Corvette, which began in 1999. The C6 generation was a spectacular generation of Corvettes, where you saw an incredible amount of upgrades in connection with the race program. This is the culmination of a lot of passionate engineers and racers, and we're all as racers drooling over the C7." It looks like GM has got a winner with their latest model. Watch Ron's interview with Wheels.ca editor Norris McDonald.

Two styles of the C7 will be available when the car reaches dealerships in late summer: a base C7 called Stingray and a higher-performance Z51. Both C7 styles are built on a new all-aluminum chassis, a major switch from the C6, where the lighter aluminum chassis was the exclusive domain of the more expensive Z06 and ZR1 variants.

To see the C7 for yourself, check out the new fleet of sexy Stingrays arriving at Spring Mountain in the early fall for the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School!

Facebook Contest Winners Visit Spring Mountain

To celebrate the Corvette Facebook page reaching 1 million fans, Chevrolet asked Corvette enthusiasts to submit stories of their favorite Corvette moments for a chance to win a trip to the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain. After reviewing innumerable stories, five people were selected for a day of high-performance driving in the Nevada desert.

Contest winners Julia Roberts, Joseph Walker, Nick Guzman, Daniel Stopka, and Manny Masias had a memorable day and a once-in-a-lifetime experience on the Spring Mountain track, with classroom instruction and on-track driving programs with our talented instructors Rick Malone and Ricardo Apolinar. View the video of the contest winners on the track.

Club Spring Mountain News - February 2013

Track Expansion Begins This Month

Watch us Grow Into the 2nd Longest Track in the World!

Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club is starting the New Year with a major expansion of the facility. We have received our long-awaited tortoise permit from the U.S Department of Fish & Wildlife, which gives us the clearance to improve the 120-acre parcel adjacent to the track acquired in May 2012 from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM.) With the new parcel, our total facility now includes 313 acres and the improvements have begun, thanks to the acquisition of private funding for the multi-million dollar project from Jeffrey Cheng, Charter Member of Club Spring Mountain, and Principal of JDJ Investments.

"Slow and steady wins the race." The track extension was initially set to begin last June; however strict regulations imposed by the government to protect the desert tortoise literally slowed down our pace to a crawl. We are committed to protecting the Desert Tortoise, the official reptile of the state of Nevada, which has recently become a threatened species. The population of the desert tortoise has declined by 90 percent since the 1980s, and they are protected from threat of extinction by Federal law.

Acquiring the Tortoise Permit allows us to begin work on the fence that will protect the reptiles from entering the property. Construction has already begun on the grading of the fence line and installation of the tortoise fence that will surround the perimeter of the property begins next week. After the construction of the barrier is complete the government biologist returns to clear the property for tortoises after which grading of the track will finally begin.

Our General Contractor, Russ Meads of Double M Construction reports we have acquired all of the County permits needed to move forward with the new 2-mile track extension, and grading will begin immediately after the area is cleared by the government biologist. The grading and prep operation is expected to last three months, and paving will be completed in six days. The new track extension will be 50 feet wide and extremely smooth, due to a special emollient mixed with the asphalt to provide more grip and a smooth surface.

With this addition, we will be able to run more extended track variations with the longest configuration being nearly 6 miles in length, making Spring Mountain the second longest track in the world! You will be seeing the changes this spring along with new configurations for running certain portions of the track both clockwise and counter-clockwise.

Plans are in place for subdividing a portion of the facility into residential lots this summer, so stay tuned for more news and developments. In addition we are preparing a tentative subdivision map for the commercial property in front of the facility to include a Gas Station, various restaurants, a hotel and more.

Our vision for Spring Mountain to become one of the finest motorsports facilities in the world is becoming a reality, and we thank you sincerely for your support and enthusiasm which has made it all possible. We're looking forward to serving you now and in the future.

We'll see you at the Club!

Radical Cup 2013

The 2013 Radical Cup Series is a professional support series that will be sanctioned by NORTH AMERICAN ROAD RACING ASSOCIATION (NARRA), one of the most respected race series sanctioning and management bodies best known for their SRT Viper Cup and USGTC Series. The Radical Cup is open to all Radical SR3 and SR8 owners who have prior racing experience and hold a current racing license with SCCA, NASA, IMSA, FIA or Grand-Am. (The Chief Steward may also approve drivers with club racing experience in a Radical.) A handful of arrive-and-drive options in an SR3 and SR8 - offered through Radical West - are also available

.

The six round championship will take place at top racing circuits in North America (Miller Motorsports Park, Road Atlanta, Laguna Seca, VIR, AutoBahn and Monticello), and Radical West and Powertec will provide optional track-side support at each round to ensure every competitor gets the most out their racing. Both racing classes - SR3 and SR8 - will run simultaneously.

The New Radical RXC Unveiled

From across the pond, Radical Sportscars has revealed its eagerly awaited Le Mans-inspired road car, the Radical RXC (Extreme Coupe), featuring a heavily tuned mid-mounted 283kW Ford V6 engine.
Radical currently holds the production car lap record at the famous Nurburgring circuit with its Radical SR8, but alongside the RXC road car is a race variant ready for International GT and sports car competition that is sure to push production car boundaries further again.

The all-new Radical RXC is the result of three and a half years of development and is a clean-sheet design that is arguably the world's most extreme road-legal (at least in the UK) coupe. Radical Owner Phil Abbott described Radical's first-ever enclosed car, the new RXC as a 'milestone track and race car.' For more information about the Radical RXC, contact Simon Shepard via email at simon@racespringmountain.com. Or, refer to Radical's Twitter Feed for the latest updates on the RXC development process.

In September GM Dignitaries, including the President of General Motors, Mark Reuss, visited the track, along with our own Ron Fellows. Last week we had the pleasure of hosting a private event for Audi Henderson and Lamborghini with Club Member Jim Diguilio, and feasted our eyes on the colorful gorgeous exotics maximizing their performance on the high-speed road course.

The starting grid at our Club race weekend on October 20-21 will be packed with new and returning racers in the Bracket-style, Miata and Radical competitions. Contestants in the October race will find a whole new world at the Club with our track extension now in use.

Autumn is the perfect time to come to the Club, with track weekends, races and fun events planned all season. And as always, the benefits of membership await your guests while you're playing on the track, including the fitness center, massages by Tina, the pool and Jacuzzi, racquetball, or simply relaxing with members and friends in the luxurious lounge.

Radical Monticello News

Across the country at our sister Club, Monticello Motor Club, we are pleased to report that we have SIX new Radical owners, several of whom are also brand new Club Spring Mountain members. We hope to see them soon at upcoming Club race weekends. Ari Straus, President of Monticello Motor Club, was among the new owners, and his Radical of choice was the SR8.

This summer we introduced the Radical dealership to fellow motorsports enthusiasts in New York, and relocated our Radical fleet, mechanics and driving professionals to the east coast for a summer of Radical courses at the world-class Motor Club. The Radical program was a huge success with sold-out driving schools and new Radicals running on the Monticello Road Course. Also, more members have joined Club Spring Mountain and Monticello after experiencing the advantages of a dual membership.

If you are interested in joining Monticello Motor Club, you can take advantage of a dual-membership option to join as a Silver or Gold Member at 50% off the current initiation fees. Club Spring Mountain members with a residence (primary or secondary) within a 200-mile radius of Monticello Motor Club are not eligible for this offer. Club Spring Mountain members can join Monticello Motor Club as a Corporate member at the normal rate and their annual dues for 2012 and 2013 will be waived (reflects a savings of $15,000 per year.)

Monticello Motor Club's road course was built to test a professional racecar driver, but designed to be safe for the first-time track enthusiast. Set on 175 wooded acres of undulating terrain, the course incorporates grand corners reminiscent of great European tracks; over 1.5 miles of straights, 450 feet of thrilling elevation changes; and a total of 22 turns including hairpins, increasing, and decreasing radius. For more information about Monticello's dual-membership program, please contact John Illanovsky at john@monticellomotorclub.com or call 877-578-7223 x 288.

Major Improvements at the Facility

The summer of 2012 was packed with excitement with huge developments completed just in time for the Fall season. In August we added 127,000 square feet and 2040 tons of asphalt, resulting in a 3/4 mile track extension! Not only did we add new track, we also made changes to certain sections to improve safety for our drivers. At Ego Check we added over 400 feet of 12' wide paving, created more width to the long straight behind the Clubhouse, and Kenny's Corner was revamped with more paving and new curbing. In these areas, 12 additional feet of paving created a nearly 50' wide road course which means safer and faster racing. Many of the existing curbs were improved and we added new curbs for running the course in a counter-clockwise rotation. Also, we added a 4/10-mile extension off turn 4 with a series of fast, challenging turns, including an 8 degree banked turn with a roller-coaster feel.

EIGHT new variations to Spring Mountain's lineup of configurations were created with this track addition, including 4.1, 3.9, 3.6, 2.7, 2.2, 2.3, 2.0 and 1.8-mile options, two of which are reverse course configurations. The aerial photo gives you an idea of the changes, but you've got to drive it to truly experience the excitement! The new track is composed of state-of-the-art asphalt material for better vehicle performance and handling.

Chevrolet News

GM Dignitaries Visit

It was a rare honor to have Mark Reuss, President of General Motors in North America, along with Ron Fellows, Corvette Racing legend and Hall of Famer, visit us at Spring Mountain last month. It was Reuss' first visit to the facility and we were thrilled to roll out the red carpet for the GM dignitaries.

Ron Fellows, General Manager Dave Petrie, VP of Sales Mike Weeks and CEO John Morris gave Mark a tour of the facility and after a few run sessions Fellows congratulated him on his impressive driving on the track. We hope to have Reuss make a return visit very soon.

Hot Laps and Donations at Barrett-Jackson

Ron Fellows attended the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas show last weekend and was part of the celebration representing Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and the sale of this special car. It is the first of only four 2012 Camaro ZL1 models produced in Imperial Blue Metallic. A custom graphics package featuring unique "Maple Leaf" striping, event and circuit logos, including the Ron Fellows brand complete the livery, designed by Ivan Novotny Design Inc. The proceeds of $100,000 were donated to the YMCA of Southern Nevada.

Driving Instructors from the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School also gave thrill rides in the form of "hot laps" at the event. Check out the video of Justin (JJ) Johnson, giving a Hot Lap to an excited passenger at Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas.

Club Spring Mountain News - September 2012

It's a Whole New World at Club Spring Mountain

Are you ready for more adrenaline rush and excitement than ever at Club Spring Mountain? The official end of summer is coming up and the Fall Season at the Club is now in full swing. In July and August our most dedicated racers have continued their preparation for the first big race of the season on September 15-16, 2012. The starting grid will be packed with new and returning racers in the Bracket-style, Miata and Radical competitions, so ALL makes and models of cars can participate in the excitement. Contestants in the September race will find an entirely new look and feel to the track with our major track extension now in use.

We've been busy this summer making improvements to your overall experience at the Club, and the results have been rewarding. CEO John Morris had a chance to drive the newly-upgraded 4.0-mile course this week and reports, "It's a whole new world out there on the track. The driving experience with all the improvements is far beyond my wildest dreams, and I can't wait to see the looks on our members' faces after they try it out for the first time. If you can imagine a roller coaster ride with complete throttle control, you will find it in the new Spring Mountain road course."

Autumn is the perfect time to stay and play at Club Spring Mountain, with track weekends, races and fun events planned all season. And as always, the benefits of membership await your guests while you're playing on the track, including working out in the fitness center, the massage center, the pool and Jacuzzi, racquetball, or relaxing with members and friends in the luxurious lounge.

Refer to our Event Calendar to plan your track visits this season. Schedule your trip to Club Spring Mountain today with our easy online RSVP form. Simply click on the date you would like to visit and you'll find the RSVP form for that time.

We'll see you at the Club!

Major Changes Completed at the Facility

This summer has been busy with huge developments completed at our world-class facility for motorsports enthusiasts. Last month we added 127,000 square feet and 2040 tons of asphalt, resulting in a 3/4 mile track extension! Not only did we add new track, we also made changes to certain sections to improve safety for our drivers. At Ego Check we added over 400 feet of 12' wide paving, created more width to the long straight behind the Clubhouse, and Kenny's Corner was revamped with more paving and new curbing. In these areas, 12 additional feet of paving created a nearly 50' wide road course which means safer and faster racing. Many of the existing curbs were improved and we added new curbs for running the course in a counter-clockwise rotation. Also, we added a 4/10-mile extension off turn 4 with a series of fast, challenging turns, including an 8 degree banked turn with a roller-coaster feel.

EIGHT new variations to Spring Mountain's lineup of configurations were created with this track addition, including 4.1, 3.9, 3.6, 2.7, 2.2, 2.3, 2.0 and 1.8-mile options, two of which are reverse course configurations. The aerial photo gives you an idea of the changes, but you've got to drive it to truly experience the excitement! The new track is composed of state-of-the-art asphalt material which makes it possible to drive on within a few days after the job is complete.

In addition to the new track extension, beginning this fall we will be offering gourmet meals prepared in our own Clubhouse kitchen. Construction is nearly complete on a full commercial kitchen in the Clubhouse, adjacent to the bar. Effective October 1 we will offer meal service for breakfast, lunch and dinner on member weekends with a gourmet menu changing per season developed by our own Executive Chef, Susan DeLisle. In addition to full-service dining for our own members, the food and beverage staff will be providing healthy and delicious lunches for the Ron Fellows Performance Driving Schools, and offering select cuisine for Corporate and Track events held at the facility. Plans also include adding more seating inside the Clubhouse dining room to accommodate the new meal service.

We know you will be thrilled with Susan's Club menu ideas, with favorites such as gourmet specialty salads, sandwich options (including a 'make your own sandwich' alternative), grilled burgers, hot dogs or sausages, pasta, chicken, fish and prime rib as an example of some of the selections. Is your mouth watering yet? We will also continue our beverage service from the bar. Having our own kitchen at the Club gives us many more options with added choices and convenience for our members.

East vs. West Radical Contest at Monticello

On August 24-26, 2012 we gathered with our new sister Club, Monticello Motor Club, for a race competition weekend in the beautiful Catskill mountains of Monticello, New York. The race was a culmination of a summer of Radical driving experiences at Monticello and the members from both coasts enjoyed some fun, camaraderie and healthy competition in the "East vs. West" race, along with an enjoyable weekend with friends old and new. Congratulations to all the members who finished on the podium. View all the photos from the weekend's festivities.

This summer we introduced the Radical dealership to fellow motorsports enthusiasts in New York, and relocated our Radical fleet, mechanics and driving professionals to the east coast for a summer of Radical courses at the world-class Motor Club. The Radical program has been a huge success with sold-out driving schools and new Radicals running on the Monticello Road Course. Also, more members have joined Club Spring Mountain and Monticello after experiencing the advantages of a dual membership. If you are interested in joining Monticello Motor Club, you can take advantage of a dual-membership option to join as a Silver or Gold Member at 50% off the current initiation fees. Club Spring Mountain members with a residence (primary or secondary) within a 200- mile radius of Monticello Motor Club are not eligible for this offer. Club Spring Mountain members can join Monticello Motor Club as a Corporate member at the normal rate and their annual dues for 2012 and 2013 will be waived (reflects a savings of $15,000 per year.)

Monticello Motor Club's road course was built to test a professional racecar driver, but designed to be safe for the first-time track enthusiast. Set on 175 wooded acres of undulating terrain, the course incorporates grand corners reminiscent of great European tracks; over 1.5 miles of straights, 450 feet of thrilling elevation changes; and a total of 22 turns including hairpins, increasing, and decreasing radius.

The Next Club Race Weekend - September 15-16, 2012

Don't Miss our September Race Event....Miata, Radical and Bracket Races!

We are expecting the biggest turnout ever for the first Club Race competition weekend of the Fall season, to be held September 15-16, 2012. The word is out about our newly-updated track and members can't wait to be a part of the new driving experience at the Club. Don't miss your chance to see friends you've missed over the summer. Radical, Miata or Sports Car fans, enjoy the camaraderie and participate in all the excitement of this race weekend. To give you the opportunity to practice on the new configurations before the race, the full track will be in use on Thursday and Friday for the members. We are expecting a large field of Radicals and Miatas at the race, with drivers competing for points and trophies at the end of the year. Now is your chance to add more points to your cumulative totals so you can take home the year-end trophies!

Sabrina reports that we will have another eventful weekend, with great food (check out the race weekend menu!) wonderful camaraderie and DJ Rob Petaros (his day job is working as a Radical Supervisor) will be spinning tunes for us in the Clubhouse on Saturday night, September 15. A complimentary continental breakfast will be served in the Clubhouse each day, and the price for lunches is $15.00 per person with pre-registration or $25.00 at the event, and dinner is $35.00 per person with pre-registration or $45.00 at the event, not including alcoholic beverages at the bar.

Drivers, on Saturday you will be running the longest, fastest track ever offered at Spring Mountain - our new 4-mile configuration. Get ready to set some new record lap times on this over 4-mile road course. The new track features high speed S's with a drop into the new section (don't worry we've given you a reference) with new wide and smooth curbs, more asphalt and a 8-degree banked corner before coming back up to 5B. Ego check and other corners are wider with better curbs and a higher degree of grip. The straight has been widened at the race start and 4-cars wide is possible around ego check. (Doug, don't do it!!!) Kenny's corner has more asphalt and newly widened curbs...that's just the start of 4 miles of your new and improved track experience.

On Sunday racers will discover a new meaning in the term 'the fastest track in the West.' Experience long straights and hard banked corners on the 3.75-mile road course. This is a wider, faster track with yet another new straight. Hold onto your hats at the widened entrance of a fast straight to ego check. You'll find out just how much downforce you have at high speeds as you decide to lift or brake.

For a complete schedule of activities, rules and associated costs, view the Saturday and Sunday race weekend schedules.

For more information or to sign up for the event, please contact Sabrina Fares.

Club Spring Mountain News - August 2012

Major Changes at the Facility This Season

New Track Extension, Clubhouse Meal Service, and MORE

This summer our development team has been busy planning and executing exciting new changes to the facility to heighten your driving experience at Club Spring Mountain. Come out to visit and you will be in for a treat! The first weekend of August the track was closed for paving our track extension, and our summer visitors will be some of the FIRST few members to drive on the new and improved road course.

This weekend we laid an additional 127,000 square feet and 2040 tons of asphalt, resulting in a 3/4 mile track extension! Not only did we add new track, we also made changes to certain sections to improve safety for our drivers. At Ego Check we added over 400 feet of 12' wide paving, created more width to the long straight behind the Clubhouse, and Kenny's Corner was revamped with more paving and new curbing. In these areas, 12 additional feet of paving created a nearly 50' wide road course which means safer and faster racing. Many of the existing curbs were improved and we added new curbs for running the course in a counter-clockwise rotation. Also, we added a 4/10-mile extension off turn 4 with a series of fast, challenging turns, including an 8 degree banked turn with a roller-coaster feel.

EIGHT new variations to Spring Mountain's lineup of exciting track configurations were added with this track addition, including 4.1, 3.9, 3.6, 2.7, 2.2, 2.3, 2.0 and 1.8-mile options, two of which are reverse course configurations. The aerial photo gives you an idea of the changes, but you've got to drive it to truly experience the excitement! The new track is composed of state-of-the-art asphalt material which makes it possible to drive on within a few days after the job is complete.

In addition to the new track extension, beginning this fall we will be offering gourmet meals prepared in our own Clubhouse kitchen. Construction begins this week on a full commercial kitchen in the Clubhouse, adjacent to the bar. Effective October 1 we will offer meal service for breakfast, lunch and dinner on member weekends with a gourmet menu changing per season, and developed by our own Executive Chef. In addition to preparing meals for our own members, the food and beverage staff will be providing healthy and delicious lunches for the Ron Fellows Performance Driving Schools, and offering select cuisine for Corporate and Track events held at the facility. Plans also include adding more seating inside the Clubhouse dining room to accommodate the new meal service.

Next on the agenda...the development of an exclusive Drivers Lounge with refrigeration for wine storage, a cigar humidor, Sports TV with fight channels, a gun safe, poker table and more. And finally, the 3000 square foot shade cover outside the Radical garage that was destroyed in the Texas tornado is now being installed. The shade cover will provide much-needed shelter from the sun for race starts and mechanic/driver preparation.

Plans are still in place for further development on the newly acquired 120-acre parcel adjacent to the facility; however, there are still requirements to be satisfied by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. We recently completed a 'Turtle Study' on the property according to government protocol, and the results have shown we are in a low impact zone with no tortoise sightings which is good news for future development.

We'll see you at the Club!
