It's Time for Summer Fun at the Club

Summertime is FUN time at Club Spring Mountain, your own private Motor Resort and Country Club. Don't miss your last chance of the season on June 11-12, 2011 to join fellow members in some healthy competition on the track....try your skills in either the Club Radical Race or the fun new bracket-style race for ALL makes and models of vehicles. The weather is perfect for a fun month with grand celebrations. While you're on the track, your guests can enjoy the luxury of a private club, work out in the fitness center, enjoy a massage with Tina, perfect their tan by the pool, or just chat with friends old and new. If you haven't been to the Club in too long, give yourself a treat this month and experience all the enjoyment your system can handle.

June is packed with exciting activities and fun events so please check the Event Calendar for the latest news. Beginning this weekend with the June Club Race Series on June 11-12, we are expecting a huge turnout for this event. More Members than ever are participating in the recently introduced Bracket Racing for all types of vehicles. Our Club Miata Race Series is going strong and the next race will be held June 18-19 on the 1.5-mile track.

We hope you can join us for a very special event that is happening on June 25-26 at the Club. The editors and drivers of Road & Track Magazine will be running a 24 hour endurance test with an Aston Martin Rapide during our member weekend. They will start their run at 8am Saturday through the night until 8 am Sunday morning. The test will run in conjunction with the Aston Martin Rapide race car that is running the 24 hours of Nurburgring. The comparisons will be made between the two cars during the 24-hour run of the street car at Spring Mountain while the race car runs at the the famous Nurburgring track in Germany.

All members are encouraged to run as usual during their normal run sessions and are welcome to watch as the Aston runs into the night during our member weekend. Refer to our Event Calendar to choose your all your dates to visit the track this month.

Don't miss out on all the fun at the Club in June. Call Vanessa Porrino, your Country Club Coordinator, to let us know you'll be here and we'll be ready for your visit! Vanessa can be reached TOLL FREE at 800.391.6891, or by cell 702-205-3820.

We'll see you at the Club!

Construction Moving Forward on Condos

Move in Scheduled for Fall Season!

Construction is in full swing on our 16-Unit Condominium Complex in the lower paddock area at the facility, next to the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School operations. Our new 16-unit Condominium/garage building is available for rent or lease, and 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... a perfect race viewing point.

The garages on the first floor will be large enough to accommodate multiple cars and extra vehicles, for the multicar race teams or groups of friends who like to share set-up, and will be ready for a classroom setting. The building will also include additional restroom facilities for public access. The building is comprised of 15,000 + square feet and we are are expecting an estimated move-in date of October 1, 2011, just in time for the fall season.
