Club Spring Mountain News - January 2012


A New Year Begins with New Experiences at the Club

Happy New Year from your friends at Club Spring Mountain...your destination for extreme fun in 2012! As we reflect on an exciting and memorable 2011, we closed the year with many wonderful new members, added races to the Club series (Miata and Bracket-Style), more improvements to the facility, including a 16-unit Condominium building for overnight guests, launched a world-class website, value-added vendors, additions to our programs, services and much more. It has been our pleasure to serve our valued Club members, and we look forward to welcoming a year filled with continued development, more activities, and many more reasons to visit the track for excitement this year.

Why not make a resolution to schedule more visits to Spring Mountain this year! In 2012 we are planning more events, more Club races and more amenities for all to experience. It's going to be another GREAT year. The economy is on the upswing and our membership continues to grow at a steady rate, thanks to referrals from our loyal and enthusiastic members (you know who you are!) This year we will make memories with members and friends old and new. More development is planned at the facility this year with the upcoming acquisition of a 120-acre parcel adjacent to the property. The future looks bright for members of Club Spring Mountain, and we hope you will be joining us more often in 2012.

None of our progress would have been possible without 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

.

We'll see you at the Club!

Club Member News

Spotlight on Joe Collura and Marlene Livings

Most of our members know Joe Collura and Marlene Livings as loyal Members of the Club since June, 2007 (they are Member #29) - before the Clubhouse was even built. They drive a 2007 Shelby Cobra and a 1995 Mustang GT 5.0 on the track and enjoy socializing in the Clubhouse.

Sophia Loren once said, "Everything you see I owe to spaghetti." Chicago JoesJoe and Marlene might agree....their acclaimed restaurant - Chicago Joe's, in Las Vegas, has been a vital part of their history....offering the best in Italian dining and catering some of our Club weekend banquets with their sumptuous Italian fare.

Joe's story begins with his grandmother, who was born in Palermo, Italy and came to the states in the early 20's. Chicago was the location of her first restaurant in the 50's, and seeking a warmer, drier climate the family moved to Vegas. Chicago Joe's began in 1975, and with the cozy ambiance of an Italian casa (the family converted a home into the restaurant) it soon stood out above the glitzy "Las Vegas-style" dining. Little Joe worked in the restaurant since he was a young boy. Joe originally worked in the pizza parlor in Chicago all throughout high school, so when they relocated to Las Vegas he helped turn the restaurant into what it has become today. He converted the home into a restaurant, and was also the first dishwasher! Joe worked in the kitchen, waited tables, and managed the restaurant when Uncle Joe passed away in 1988.

Marlene and Joe met at the restaurant in 1989. Marlene has worked in restaurants and catered, and had her first experience in the kitchen at Chicago Joe's. Having been taught at age 4 how to fry an egg and boil water by her mother, who promised "when you can do both of those successfully, you can do just about anything," Marlene went on to prove her mother's prediction. Marlene had to earn her way into Chicago Joe's kitchen, and Joe's mother finally agreed to allow her to learn the family recipes. Marlene has been the chef ever since.

Chicago Joe's menu consists of three generations of family recipes, including Grandma's famous Pasta e fagioli soup, Chicken Angelo, Shrimp Parmigiana, and Chicago Style lobster. On the more traditional side the Eggplant Parmigiana, the Meat Lasagna, and Calamari - one of the few restaurants that make it Sicilian style in traditional red sauce. In the middle of a desert, this is by far the best seafood anyone could ever have!

Chicago Joe's menu will be featured at the January 2012 Club Weekend event.

Santa Visits Club Spring Mountain

Ernest Hons has been a Club Member since May 2008, and with his jovial manner and long, white beard he is a natural to play Santa Claus, which he has done professionally through the years, including gigs with the Scouts, The SantaWashington Post, and Fast Eddies billiard parlor chain. This holiday season Ernest made wishes come true for fans in a Henderson, Nevada mall through Las Vegas Entertainment Productions, where they have already asked him back for next year. A few days before Christmas, Ernest arranged for a private visit to Club Spring Mountain, just to speak to three-year-old Savannah (Michael Von Quilich's employees' daughter) who is new to the area. Savannah's family bought their home from Todd Joyce (contact Todd at 702-208-4124) who works our Club Race weekends and as a local real estate professional who helps members find homes in the area. Pictured here is Santa with a delighted 3-year-old Savannah.

Born and raised in Wisconsin, Ernest spent his early years involved in SCCA as a volunteer in pit and paddock and corner worker positions, giving him the opportunity to see and be a part of races at IRP, Mid Ohio, Grattan, Road America, and others. Ernest took his first driving school in 1995 and became hooked on performance driving. At the driving school, he learned the right techniques that really work, and he has always loved Corvettes.

Ernest spent about 30 years in the Washington DC area as a Federal Contracting Officer/Contacts Manager. He retired in 2006 and relocated to Pahrump in 2008. Currently Ernest resides in Mountain Falls, Bella Sera, and is a Bachelor, but is happy with occasional relationships.

Introducing Sabrina Fares

It's hard not to notice our new Country Club Coordinator, Sabrina Fares. Her dazzling smile and vivacious energy light up the Clubhouse as she enters the room. SabrinaNot only is Sabrina smart and resourceful, she is extremely service oriented and and accommodating to our valued members. We are thrilled to have Sabrina on the staff at the Club and thought you should know a little more about her.

Sabrina hails from New York City, and she moved to Las Vegas in 2005. Going from a big city to the desert is big change, but Sabrina has thrived in her current environment (although she still prefers apartment living to single family housing.) Currently living in Las Vegas, Sabrina flourishes in the energy of the city.

A friendly 'people person' who loves building relationships, Sabrina worked in the Hotel/Hospitality Industry for 7 years, most recently at the new Cosmopolitan Hotel, specializing in Events and Wedding Planning. A self-confessed typical Leo, Sabrina was born on August 14 and has two younger sisters. Competitive in nature, she enjoys playing all sports, especially softball, and looks forward to taking on some of our members in autocross in the near future. Best to stay out of her way!

There's no challenge too difficult for Sabrina. She is full of fun new ideas for changes in our programs and services and she has already made some positive changes at the Club. Sabrina comments on her new position, saying "I love my job and always try to make our Club members' experience at the track as rewarding as possible. We've got a lot of great things happening this year at Club Spring Mountain." Sabrina looks forward to meeting and working with our members during the coming year. If you don't introduce yourself to Sabrina next time you're at the Club, it's not a problem - Sabrina will make it a point to meet you.

Club Member News

Michael Von Quilich Races Daytona in Viper Cup

We've been following Charter Member Michael & Virginia Von Quilich's race season in the Dodge Viper Cup Series. Michael reports on his experience, "Virginia and I had a wonderful time. The Daytona International Speedway has no noise restrictions which is cool considering they run the Rolex 24 hour endurance race every year. The track is a gigantic tri-oval and when first entering the track, the 31 degree banking is very intimidating, in fact, you can't walk up the steep banks without falling. On Friday, I raced in a 1.5 hour enduro which helped me learn the track."

The Viper Cup finals attracted some very high level pro drivers; a two time LeMans winner, last year's Daytona 24 Hour winner, an Indy driver and two drivers who recently set world records at Nurburgring. The track is extremely fast, and Michael was hitting 180 MPH in his Red & White Viper #19 on the front straight which is banked about 6 degrees. The back straight has a high speed bus stop where the racers enter at about 140 MPH. If you miss the right line by just a few inches, you get into trouble fast. At the race, several cars spun and hit the inside wall, but not Michael. He says, "I was grateful for the bus stop at Spring Mountain, the experience paid off for me!"

Michael finished 9th in the final race, which was good enough for 6th in the overall standings, and sums up the last race in the 2011 Dodge Viper Cup Series by saying "We were very proud of our finish, if the pro drivers hadn't shown up for the last race, we would have finished 4th. We feel fortunate to have raced at such a famous facility!" Congratulations to Michael and his team!

Holiday Club Race Weekends

Get ready for another phenomenal weekend race for members of Club Spring Mountain.

We are expecting the largest field of Radicals and Sports Cars ever at this race, with drivers competing for big year-end trophies and special prizes. Remember, there are only TWO more Club races left to accumulate points for the year-end banquet and trophy presentation to be held on December 3, 2011. The popular new Bracket-style race will be held both Saturday and Sunday, which includes ALL makes of Sports Cars! Important: The Bracket Race will now include Sports Cars ONLY. Slower cars and drivers will start the race with a time advantage over faster and more experienced drivers, so everyone has an equal chance to win the contest. Please note the full track will be dedicated our members on Thursday and Friday, November 17-18, so you can prepare for the race.

Ron Fellows Inducted into the 2011 Hall of Fame

We're so proud of our own Ron Fellows, who last month, along with Clare "Mac" MacKichan, a key designer for the first and other early Corvettes, and Ray Quinlan, donor of a 1953 Corvette to the Museum, were inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame during the 14th Annual Corvette Hall of Fame Ceremony in 2011. The Corvette Hall of Fame is the highest honor bestowed by the Museum for significant contributions to the past, present and future of Corvette.

During a ceremony and banquet on September 2, 2011 Ron was inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame, during the Museum's 17th Anniversary Corvette Celebration festivities September 1-3, 2011 at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Mike Weeks, Vice President of Sales at Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club, was also on hand to witness the event.

Ron Fellows' impressive skill as a driver for the Corvette Racing Team has earned him the respect of Corvette fans everywhere. His 27 wins, three ALMS championships and two wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, along with his unprecedented four consecutive "Most Popular Driver" awards from ALMS fans, testify to his track record of success. Although he has not raced for the factory team since 2008, he remains one of the most recognizable, respected and popular personalities to ever represent Corvette's racing heritage. As evidence of his enormous popularity, GM paid tribute to Ron by creating the "Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Champion Corvette Z06" in 2007.

The National Corvette Museum established the Corvette Hall of Fame in 1998 to confer the highest honor and recognition upon the most influential individuals in the history of the Corvette. The award recognizes those who have made significant contributions to their respective fields, each having reached the highest level of accomplishment. Inductees must also reflect the highest standards of integrity and character to positively enhance the prestige of the Corvette and the National Corvette Museum.

Road & Track Magazine Features Spring Mountain in 24-Hours of Rapide

The editors at Road & Track Magazine wanted to do something more than a standard road test or a sedate cross-country odyssey with the V-12 Aston Martin Rapide, the stylish and very fast 4-door sports car that Aston introduced late last year. So they came up with a unique challenge: a 24-hour endurance test to be run in conjunction with the Aston Martin Rapide race car running the 24 hours of Nurburgring. The comparisons were made between the two cars during the 24-hour run of the street car at Spring Mountain while the race car ran at the famous Nurburgring track in Germany. They choose Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club as the site of this summer quest.

Twenty-four hours later, with 496 laps, 1339.2 miles driven, six sets of front tires and three sets of rear tires replaced, one flash fire extinguished and 279.3 gallons of gasoline consumed, their goal was accomplished. The test began at 8am Saturday and ran through the night until 8 am Sunday morning.

In this video, John Morris, CEO of Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club, reports on his experience testing the Aston Martin Rapide on the 2.7-mile road course at Spring Mountain.

Miata Racers Remember 9/11 at Fall Contest

Rounds 11 and 12 of the Club Spring Mountain Miata Race Series (CSMMRS) took place over the September 10th and 11th weekend. The group competed on the 2.2 mile layout with some of the most intense racing the series has ever seen.

Saturday's podium was covered by just 6 seconds with the first and second place competitors separated by a mere .3 of a second. The top step on the podium was captured by the current series point leader Mike Von Quilich. John Falb claimed second place, and Paul Lynch rounded out the fast 3.

Sunday's race was no less exciting and while timing issues prevented an accurate measurement of the differences between competitors crossing the finish line, less than 3 seconds covered the fieldís fast laps. Mike Von Quilich found himself again standing on top of podium when all was said and done. John Falb took his second 2nd place of the weekend along with setting the raceís fastest lap. Lee Mixon captured his first podium finish of the series.

The series next event weekend is October 8-9, 2011. If you have questions or are interested in the series contact club member Tony Zito at (702)521-9966 or Blue996tt@gmail.com.

It's a Bird...It's a Plane... It's a JETLEV!

LEARN HOW TO FLY IN MINUTES WITH A WATER-PROPELLED JET PACK

Club members, are you ready for an exhilarating new experience in the air?JetLev John Morris, CEO of Club Spring Mountain has taken his need for speed to the skies over Newport Beach, California this summer, as he introduces the first water-propelled jet pack on the west coast n the Jetlev R200. John and his new company, Jetlev Southwest, LLC are the exclusive distributors of the Jetlev R200 in the south western states. Soon Club Spring Mountain members will have access to a Jetlev Flight Center on our own private lake at the facility, which is expected to be ready for water activities next year.

For those who can't wait until the private lake here at the club is completed, come visit the location in Newport Beach and learn how to fly the Jetlev R200. The 3-hour course will include small John Jetlevclass sizes of 4 participants, and during the program you will receive ground instruction and flight time in the air!

16 New Condos for Students Under Construction

NEW RESORT-STYLE CONDOMINIUMS OPEN THIS FALL

We are pleased to announce the expansion of our residential options for driving program students at Spring Mountain's Motor Resort and Country Club. The skyline at the facility is changing to include the development of a 16-unit Condominium/garage building in the lower paddock area, next to the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School operations. The new condominium complex, available for rent, features 16 deluxe units: half with double queens and half with king-sized beds. All units include private baths and wet bars. Five of the units will have rear balconies with great views of turns 1 and 2 and with only 60 feet between your window and the road course...wow what a great vantage point for watching all the action on the track!  The new resort condos are a perfect place to relax after a day driving on the track.  Simply walk from the classroom to your own private condominium. 

The garages on the first floor will be large enough to accommodate multiple cars and extra vehicles, great for the multicar race teams or groups of friends who like to share set-up tips, and will be ready for a classroom setting. The building will also include additional restroom facilities for public access. The best feature of this building will be its location in the center of the Motor Resort for large event weekends when the upper paddock will be busy. For students of the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School this will be the new location for the Drivers meetings. The building is comprised of 15,000 + square feet and we are estimating a move-in date of October 1, 2011, just in time for the fall season.
