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.

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.

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

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.

NARRA Radical Cup Member Victories

Club Members are Champions in 2013 Radical Cup

The 2013 Radical Cup champions have been announced, and we're proud to report Club Spring Mountain members Gerhard Watzinger and Tony Bullock each clinched their class championships in style after victories during the season finale at our sister track, Monticello Motor Club. Also on the podium were Club members Jim Booth (SR8), George Kurtz (SR3), Adam Merzon (SR8) and John Falb (SR3). Narrowly missing the podium in the exciting contest and running a very close 4th was "Superman" Mark Allan.

As champions, Watzinger (SR8) and Bullock (SR3) will each receive a race in the Radical Cup Euroseries next year. As he collected the most points of any driver in either class, Watzinger has also won a chance to test a 200mph+ capable Le Mans prototype (LMP2) car.

Congratulations to our expert Club Member drivers! We would also like to thank our hard working Radical race crew, who traveled the country to support our member racers. A winning team of skilled racers, their families and support staff were all dedicated to common racing goals, and their hard work was rewarded with these championships.

Race Victories and Brand New Club Members

Michael von Quilich Takes Two Major Championships

Michael and Virginia von Quilich, Charter Members of the Club, are a winning team in racing and in life. This season, they campaigned both of their Dodge Vipers with the "Redhead" (red) set up for SCCA rules and the "Rattler" (white) modified for the NASA circuit as MeNo Racing. Campaigning two cars in two different sanctioning bodies proved to be quite a challenge but their efforts really paid off. In six conference races, von Quilich took five wins and a second-place finish. His season started with back-to-back wins at Buttonwillow Raceway Park, followed by another pair of wins at Pacific Raceways, finishing the season with a win and second-place at PIR. With a perfect qualifying record, von Quilich was the polesitter in each race he entered in 2013.

Michael is grateful to those who made the championship campaign a possibility. "My wife, Virginia, is an integral member of the team. She times all of my laps, and does the tire pressures when I come in for tire checks. Her send-offs over the radio inspire me to do my best. Jim 'Tapper' Tapp is our crew chief. He has done a masterful job of keeping the car in top tune. His suspension setups were a major factor for us to set T-1 track records at every track this year."

Michael and his MeNo Racing team won the SCCA Majors Western Conference Championship with the Redhead and the NASA National Championship with the Rattler with races at tracks in Seattle, Portland, California and Utah. The team also set new track records at every event they raced this year in NASA Super Touring 1 and SCCA Touring 1 classes. Congratulations MeNo Racing!

A New Arrival - Baby Liana Cheng

The youngest member of Club Spring Mountain made her grand entrance in Newport Beach, CA on October 10, 2013 at 4:36 pm, weighing in at 7 pounds 4 ounces. New mother Jessica, proud father Jeffrey Cheng, and the beautiful new Liana are all doing well, and looking healthy. Congratulations to Jeffrey and Jessica from your Club Spring Mountain family! We look forward to seeing this little beauty at the Club very soon.

Radical News

European Tour, New RXC and NARRA Champions

Spring Mountain CEO John Morris, and Ken Melgoza, Club Spring Mountain Radical Cup SR8 Champion for 2012, visited Radical Motorsport in England this month for a tour of the facility and an introduction to European racing. Radical has been working on their latest masterpiece, the Le Mans-inspired road legal RXC. The RXC is a result of 3 1/2 years of design and development to create the world's most extreme road-legal coupe. Inspired by contemporary LMP design, the RXC brings a true taste of Le Mans to the road. Dramatically styled, high in performance but with low running costs, the RXC is powered by a 3.7-liter V6 engine, and capable of speeds up to 175 mph and 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds.

Radical's first ever closed-cockpit car made its debut at Europe's largest automotive expo, the Frankfurt Motor Show. The US debut of the road-legal RXC is coming soon as members of Club Spring Mountain have ordered the RXC for delivery to the facility this fall. Radical expects to build up to 50 RXC vehicles per year.

During his visit Morris tested the hot new Radical RXC in the rolling hills of the Ardennes on the beautiful and historic race circuit. The verdict is in, and Morris declares "It's a winner! I predict we'll be seeing many of our Club Members and friends driving RXC's on the road and at the track."

As Champion of last year's Radical Cup, Melgoza won a chance to race at the world-famous Spa Francorchamps in Belgium. Club Spring Mountain members John Falb and Bruce Jones also raced in the European contest.

NARRA News - 2013 Radical Cup Champions

Spring Mountain's Dramatic Development Continues

Our General Contractor Russ Meads and his team at Double M Construction paved the first layer of asphalt of the 2,100 foot straightaway last week as part of the new 2.1 mile, 40-foot wide track addition, and we're getting closer to being the longest racetrack in North America at 6.1 miles!

Spring Mountain's vision to continue as one of the world's leading motorsports facilities is driven by the tremendous support and enthusiasm of our Club Members and Partners.

Along with the new Track Expansion, more dynamic development efforts at Spring Mountain include:

  • Skid Pad 300-foot by 500-foot (completed)
  • New Building 7,800-square-foot for Cadillac V-Series Academy and JetPack America
  • 14 new Garages west of the Clubhouse
  • Lake 8 acres and 10 feet deep
  • Development plans for up to 75 residential lots around the perimeter of the property line for future sale exclusive to Club Spring Mountain members. A tentative subdivision map to be recorded with Nye County later this year.
  • 28 acres planned for Commercial property at front of facility to include a Gas Station, Restaurant, Hotel, and more.

Milestones May Club Races

View 2013 Point Totals

Miata Race Series
Radical Race Series

Radical Race Weekend in May (View Photos) featured many firsts, with new Club Member Jim Booth, and our first time racers Terry Carlson and Collette Brawner.

Jim Booth ran hard with Randy Carpenter in the Radical Unlimited Division, and on Sunday, he kept up with the Series leaders to land him a spot on the podium in Third Place.

Terry Carlson had a tight race with fellow Rookie Driver Alain Derzie and passed him near the end to place Third.

After only two days of Radical private driving instruction, Collette Brawner ran a good clean race and finished in 6th, and she makes history as the FIRST female racer in a Radical Sponsored Race, with hopes more women will join her at upcoming races!

Troy Stevens Racing Specialties of Fairfield, CA, the leading U.S. maker of custom seats for all types of racing cars for more than 15 years, serviced many of our Club Members during our last race weekend. Contact Troy to have your seats customized at 707-372-7162.

Club Spring Mountain News - April 2013

Alliance Membership at Autobahn Country Club

CSM Members can join our new Sister Club at a 50% Discount

Club Spring Mountain proudly announces a new addition to our family of motorsports enthusiasts. Our new Sister Club, Autobahn Country Club in Joliet is situated on 350 acres of gently rolling countryside just outside Chicago, Illinois. Autobahn is a road course racetrack featuring two challenging road circuits which may be combined to form a 3.56-mile 40-foot wide course with 22 turns. The two courses together create the second longest racing venue in the United States.

We are pleased to announce a Reciprocal Membership offer to current Club Spring Mountain members. As our Sister Club, you can join Autobahn Country Club as an Alliance Member at 50% off the current initiation fees. Autobahn Country Club members can also join Club Spring Mountain at a 50% discount.

Club Spring Mountain members with a residence (primary or secondary) within a 250-mile radius of Autobahn Country Club are not eligible for this offer.

As part of our alliance with Autobahn, the Radical Racing School will be offered at their facility in Joliet this summer. From July 20-25, three 2-day Radical Schools will be offered at Autobahn's facility. Autobahn's 1.5-mile North Race Circuit is the perfect course to let the Radical loose. With nine turns and a 1,200 ft straightaway, both car and driver will feel right at home. Autobahn's Pro Race Instruction Team will provide classroom and behind-the-wheel training, no matter your experience level. Each 2-day session is limited to between 6-10 participants.

The Radical Racing School in Joliet will culminate with a Radical Racing event at Autobahn's facility on July 27-28.

Autobahn Country Club is conveniently located one hour from downtown Chicago and O'Hare Airport in a beautiful rural setting, with easy access to major expressways. The facility is located just ten minutes away from major hotels and restaurants.

For additional information about the Autobahn Alliance Membership, please contact Mike Weeks, VP Sales, at mike@racespringmountain.com, call the office at 800.391.6891 or Mike's cell phone at 949-235-7810.

Club Members Finish Strong at Inaugural Radical Cup USA

From Press Release NARRA.com April 1, 2013

"The Radical Cup, America's newest sports car series, concluded its inaugural event in spectacular fashion on Sunday, March 31 at Miller Motorsports Park, Utah. Furious four-wide action turned into nose-to-tail racing lap after lap during Round 2 of the championship. Gerhard Watzinger and John Falb made series history, becoming the first ever back-to-back race winners, while Jay Torres gained his first podium.

With a race and another days running under their belts, it was no surprise to see new names near the top of timesheet for Sunday's qualifying session. Mark Allan (#36) bounced up the charts to be 4th fastest in SR3, and making the biggest impression, Jay Torres (#123) qualified 3rd in class after missing all of Saturday."

For all the details and race results, read the complete race recap.

View the photos of Radical Cup USA at Miller from Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The second Radical Cup USA weekend was held April 12-14 at Road Atlanta, and once again our Club Spring Mountain members dominated the competition. We will report all the latest results in the next Club newsletter. For up-to-the minute news in the meantime, visit narraonline.com or mylaps.com.

View the photos from last Friday April 12 at Road Atlanta.

Congratulations to all of our Club members participating in the Radical Cup traveling series this year. We are looking forward to following your progress this season.

Latest News on the Track Expansion Project

Moving Right Along on Track, Lake and Residential Lots

Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club is happy to report that steady progress is being made on the track expansion project at the facility. The grading of the track is moving along as scheduled and Russ Meads, General Contractor reports that paving of the new paddock begins this week, along with additional grading.

The bowl is now taking shape and the hill is visible by car and by air. A 78' drop has been shaped and you can see the sensation starting to form as you come off a sharp right hander and head down into the bowl at extremely high speeds to climb right out and twist back onto the fast and smooth 40' wide track.

Grading and forming of the rest of the track will begin at the end of the week along with grading of the beginnings of the lake. Spring Mountain representatives met with Nye County officials last week and submitted a map to include 75 large residential lots to be placed around the perimeter of the property line with expansive views of the facility, the Spring Mountains, sunsets and the 8-acre lake. Plans for the models will be released shortly, and we are expecting a tentative subdivision map to be recorded with the County in July 2013.

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.

Club Race Weekend - April 20-21

Warm and Sunny Weather expected this Race Weekend

Join us for the first race weekend of the spring season to enjoy some exciting race events....the Miata Series and the Radical Series to be held on April 20-21. The weather is expected to be sunny and in the low 80s - perfect for racing and for spectators - so make your plans today to be here for all the fun. Come to the Club early to practice for the competition to enjoy exclusive use of the full track on both Thursday and Friday to practice for the big race.

We are expecting a large field of Miatas and Radicals at the race, with drivers competing for points and trophies at the end of the year. Now is your chance to keep up the momentum! Please note that there will be two separate Radical races this month. The SR3 and Unlimited classes will race together and the Rookie class will race separately at a later time.

Please mark your calendars to attend this Club race event, which will include a mandatory Driver's meeting at 8:00 am on both Saturday and Sunday. Again this month, immediately after the Driver's meeting a special 25-minute 50 mph maximum orientation-style lapping session (flashers required) will be held to become familiar with the track configuration. The Orientation session will be followed by back-to-back run sessions all day, a Miata and a Radical race on Saturday and Sunday, plus open lapping sessions and a tire scrubbing session on Saturday afternoon. Please note that speed restrictions will be imposed at the tire scrub session on Saturday, with a 3 grid penalty assessed if speed restrictions are exceeded.

Chef Susan has a delicious menu planned for the weekend festivities and a celebratory Clubhouse dinner on Saturday night, April 20. On Saturday the 2.9-mile Stewart course will be in use, and on Sunday we will run the 3.4-mile Mansell course. 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.

View the schedule for Saturday and Sunday's events.


Mandatory SCCA Seminar.
Please note that this Friday, April 19, 2013, prior to the race weekend we will be holding an SCCA licensing seminar for all racers who do not currently hold or have ever held a racing license.

If you have not already done so, we are asking all racers to bring a copy of their racing license to the track. 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 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.

View the photos from last month's Club races here.
