Lake Taghkanic 10/26/2014 Solo results posted

Here are the results from Solo Points Event #4 at Lake Taghkanic on 10/26/2014: Final Results, PAX times, Raw times.

Although the cloudy day and passing afternoon shower didn’t provide the best lighting to appreciate the peak fall foliage this year, 50 drivers received 8 runs on a somewhat technical course designed by Mark VanDeCarr. Kudos go out to Paul Vinas, who scored the hat trick (won class, fastest PAX, and FTD), and took home our VIP guest driver (cardboard) Danica Patrick along with the other three trophies.

As event chairs, Jennifer and I would like to thank the NYR-SCCA crew for making the road trip up north to support PSCC, Dean VanDeCarr, Joe Pavan, et. al. for their usual through job at tech, Jarvis and crew for the equipment setup/teardown, Tom Murphy for all of the pre-event arrangements, Mark for another great course, Jennifer for collecting a truckload of door prizes, working registration, waiver, and everything else that she does behind the scenes both before and after each event, Chip and Beth for the donuts and apple cider, Greg VanDeCarr, Todd Robinson, and Mark Long for somehow keeping me away from the computer most of the day, and plenty of other people that I’m forgetting off the top of my head. It is such a pleasure to chair an event with such a great group of volunteers ready to step forward and get things done.

Let me throw in a reminder since I forgot to mention it at the drivers meeting that the 50th Annual Tri-State Championship is taking place on the big lot at Stratford on 11/2. The New York team *really* needs drivers to show up, so please make the trip out to FCSCC’s autocross season finale if you are available.

PSCC’s last competition event of the season is the Rallycross on 11/9. Following that, we have our holiday party in December and the annual PANIC awards banquet in late January. See the calendar above for details.
