Perfect Climate with no April Showers in sight.

Welcome to Club Spring Mountain, a luxurious, convenient facility with the perfect environment to mingle with friends and Doug-and-Oliver-desert-funrelax after a long day of adrenaline filled racing.

With so many activities to experience along with the rush of driving on the challenging track configurations, more members than ever are making memories at "The Club."

Out and about with Members Mitch & Kathy Clark and Jeffrey Cheng

Member News

We were pleased to welcome Charter Members Mitch Clark and his lovely wife Kathy to the track last week with their stunning Audi R8Mitch-Clark-and-Kathy-with-car LMS from Audi Henderson! After a few laps around the track, needless to say, lapping other cars was not a problem.

Charter Member Jeffrey Cheng recently moved in to his beautiful new home at Spring Mountain Estates, complete with its own airplane hangar. Last week, Jeffrey surprised everyone by making a landing at the back of his home in his own Robinson R-44 Helicopter, which he just flew from John Wayne Airport in OrangeCounty, California. The journey took about 1.75 hours. Jeffrey completely transformed his helicopter with a custom paint job and special interior.

Jeffrey-Cheng-House-rear-with-helo-Apr-2015In addition to his Private Pilot Certification, Jeffrey has now accomplished his latest goal of being an official Helicopter Pilot. Flying helicopters is a challenging endeavor requiring superior skills and hours of dedication, but Jeffrey made it look easy. He and his flight instructor came in for dinner, stayed overnight in his home and flew over to the Clubhouse the next day for breakfast. Construction will begin on a helicopter garage soon. Next on Jeffrey's bucket list....we're wondering how he can top this!
