WORLD SUPERBIKES 2017
I’d like to thank everyone who came out and worked the Race and supported the Club. I needed everyone I could get. We were short handed top to bottom. We didn’t have enough workers to run the landline. Everybody did what they were asked to do and everybody worked together to make things work. Over half of the workers were newbies or never worked with us before, so it felt good to see everyone working as a team with the goal of having a safe event. TM’s had double duty. They had to run the Turn and work an RC position without the help of a Communicator. You did a good job moving people around to fill holes before the Inspection. Thanks guys, especially Myles, Alex and Joel, who were new TM’s this year. Dragon Wagon kicked ass again, not sure how you did it with only 6 guys, but you must have tired at the end of each day. Gators covered the track Friday with only 3 of them. I had to use 2 gator drivers to Flag where 2 people didn’t show up. Thanks Sandy and Phil. Bev and Egor Thanks for filling spots in Race Control. My crew rocked again. Elena you help me so much, I don’t know what I would do without you. Jody, Rene and Scott, thanks for doing what ever it takes to get things done. Shelley, Thanks for coming out and helping me when I was in such a bind. I didn’t know what I was going to do before you showed up. I owe you one. I want to Thank my fellow Board Members for all the work they do behind the scenes leading up to the Race and while at the Track. Next year’s Race is supposed to be at the end of July, not the beginning of the month like the last 2 years. Not supposed to make the date public yet, but if you need to know for vacation planning or hotels shoot me an e-mail. The schedule usually gets released at the end of September if you can wait. The group picture on the hill for Nicky was awesome. Gill showed the picture to Nicky’s mother when she gave her the checkered flag we signed. Gill told her quite a few of the workers were here when Nicky won here in MotoGP. She was touched by the gesture. RIP Nicky. You’ll be missed for a long time………………. Thank You again to everyone. Be safe and take care. Hope to see everyone again next year.
