In September GM Dignitaries, including the President of General Motors, Mark Reuss, visited the track, along with our own Ron Fellows.

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.

In addition to the new track extension, we are now offering gourmet meals prepared in our own Clubhouse kitchen. Construction is complete on a full commercial kitchen in the Club Spring Mountain Member Center, adjacent to the bar, and we will offer meal service for breakfast, lunch and dinner on select weekends with a gourmet menu changing per season developed by our new Executive Chef, Susan DeLisle. In addition to full-service dining for our Club Spring Mountain 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.

Susan DeLisle - Director of Food & Beverage

We are pleased to welcome Susan DeLisle as the new Director of Food & Beverage at Club Spring Mountain. Susan comes to us with excellent credentials, most recently as Executive Chef at Mountain Falls Grill Room, where she created the menus and was in charge of restaurant and catering operations. Susan received a degree in Culinary Arts at the Culinary Institute of America in New York and has valuable experience in all facets of the restaurant industry at high-end eateries in New York City. Susan will be responsible for creating the menus for our Ron Fellows Performance Driving School students, and her menus include favorites such as gourmet specialty salads, sandwich options (including a 'make your own sandwich' ), grilled burgers, hot dogs or sausages, pasta, chicken, fish and more.

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.

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.

Our New Director of Food & Beverage - Susan DeLisle

We are pleased to welcome Susan De.Lisle as the new Director of Food & Beverage at Club Spring Mountain. Susan comes to us with excellent credentials, most recently as Executive Chef at Mountain Falls Grill Room, where she created the menus and was in charge of restaurant and catering operations. Susan received a degree in Culinary Arts at the Culinary Institute of America in New York and has valuable experience in all facets of the restaurant industry at high-end eateries in New York City. 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.

Race Results - East vs West Radical Contest at Monticello

Saturday results
SR3: John Morris - 1st; Ryan Carpenter - 2nd; Randy Carpenter - 3rd
Rookie: Richard Cosgrove - 1st; Ron Eckhardt - 2nd; Justin Ehrlich - 3rd

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!

NEW In Car Flag Alert System

We are pleased to introduce the NEW in-car Flag Alert System, which has been tested and is ready for use on the Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club road course. Designed by Gary Hardesty, Club Spring Mountain Charter Member, and the creator of the state-of-the-art Track Marshall System, the in-car Flag Alert System is the best way to stay safe on the race track, and the only one of its kind in the world.

The system will alert you immediately from Race Control as track conditions change, including the ability to communicate directly to you in your individual car, through your unique ID number.

The system displays the following flags in full color and any ambient lighting condition:

* Green
* Yellow
* Red
* White

On an individual basis, the system can give you the following flags:

* Blue passing flag
* Black flag
* Yellow flag

The new In Car system consists of a small transceiver module, which can be mounted in any convenient location, and a small, rugged, high brightness LED display module. The system works wirelessly, driven by commands from the Race Control software. Long distance communication assures in-car reliability. 12 volt operation allows the system to be used in any vehicle, with simple, fast, non-technical installation.

Only a limited supply of these units will be available for the upcoming race weekend on June 9, so if you are interested, please contact Simon Shepard by email simonshepard05@yahoo.com, or by phone at (714) 369-3361 to be the first to use this state-of-the-art In-Car system at the June race. The price is $1,195.00 plus installation. Production is being expedited for the fall season and we expect to have plenty of In-Car systems available before the September season.

Spring Mountain Acquires 120 Acres for New Development

Track Extension Planned on the New Property

We are happy to report that Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club has finalized the acquisition of a 120-acre parcel adjacent to the facility. The parcel, acquired from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was purchased by modified competitive sealed-bid sale. CEO and co-owner John Morris personally attended the sale at the Pahrump Field Office on Torrey Pines Drive in Las Vegas on Monday, May 7, 2012. With the addition of the new parcel, the total size of the facility will now include 313 acres.

We are planning to immediately improve the property, beginning with a 1.6-mile track extension on the new parcel, along with a .5-mile extension on the original 2.2-mile road course, at turn 4. The new track extension will be 50 feet wide and extremely smooth, due to a special emollient mixed with the asphalt to provide an excellent grip and smooth surface, with exceptional banking, including 102 feet of elevation change with a banked bowl. With this addition, we will be able to run 4 simultaneous track configurations and multiple long track variations for Country Club members, with the longest configuration totalling 6 miles in length.

"We've accelerated our development to realize our vision of Spring Mountain being a world-class motorsports facility," says CEO John Morris. "The acquisition of the new parcel of land will allow us to immediately begin our track expansion and to build a lake for the enjoyment of the public. After the track addition is complete, Spring Mountain will be the second-longest race track in the world."

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. In Fiscal Year 2011, recreational and other activities on BLM-managed land contributed more than $130 billion to the U.S. economy and supported more than 600,000 American jobs. The Bureau is also one of a handful of agencies that collects more revenue than it spends. In FY 2012, nearly $5.7 billion will be generated on lands managed by the BLM, which operates on a $1.1 billion budget. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.

For more details about the new property and development plans, read the press release.

Protecting the Desert Tortoise

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

At Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club we are committed to protecting the desert tortoise, which has recently become a threatened species. The desert tortoise is a large herbivore and the official reptile in the states of California and Nevada. No other tortoise in North America shares the extreme conditions of habitats occupied by the desert tortoise. The desert tortoise is able to live where ground temperatures may exceed 140 degrees F because of its ability to dig underground burrows to escape the heat. It is one of the most elusive inhabitants of the desert, spending up to 95% of its time underground to escape the heat of the summer and the cold of winter. They live in burrows which they dig, ranging from 3-6 feet deep. The tortoise will spend November through February in a torpid or dormant state in their underground burrows. 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.

We recently completed a "Turtle Study' on our newly acquired property according to the US Fish & Wildlife Service protocol, and the results have shown we are in a low impact zone with no tortoise sightings which is good news for future development.
