Palmer Open Lapping Oct. 16

Palmer Motorsport Park is having an open lapping day or half day on Oct. 16 th. These are fun events with up to 6 or more hours of track time. Plus the view and fall colors should be great. It will most likely be our last chance to drive this track this year.

Re: DB levels at Palmer

Mufflers or Super-Traps are not that expensive. Every competitor should be well below the 96 db limit.Please make your car as neighbor friendly as you can. I live in the next town to Palmer and there have been several tv news stories and newspaper articles about the track noise. The two closes towns...

Re: 3 hrs of seat time at Whiskey Hill on May 23rd.

When the SCCA was applying for the permits to build the track, some government authority though it would be a bad idea to have a paved paddock blocking natural drainage. So the track has no paved paddock. Most of Lime Rock's paddock was unpaved for over 50 years,

Re: 3 hrs of seat time at Whiskey Hill on May 23rd.

You should have been there on May 8th Mick. There were dust devils crossing the paddock. I am sure that as of this past Sunday no calcium chloride has been spread. The paddock wants to be grass in the future and the calcium chloride would hinder that. The dirt in the paddock was just spread on May 6...

The dust in the paddock area seem to settle down some and calcium chloride was not put down. Eventually the paddock will be seeded and hopefully grass will grow.

Pulaski St. is one way, the wrong way. Go to the traffic light past the river and turn left onto Main St. Follow Rt. 32 S , it turns left after 1/4 mile, Gibbs gas station is just on your left at the corner of Pulaski and Rt. 32. When leaving station take Pulaski to the end and turn right back onto ...

Re: Salvage Inspections

you need the original insurance appraisal and repair orders that show all the repairs needed on the appraisal were done. The state police inspector will be more concerned with the paper work then the car but will look at and check numbers on the car. Good luck they can be very picky.

Hi Sam, I spoke with Fred F. about your registration problems. He said because you are already registered and were just trying to add another person is the reason for the message. You might want to contact Mark S. to add another guest . See you there.
