Greetings Zone 4 Members,

   I want to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday season.  I have enjoyed another wonderful year as your Zone Rep, and would like to thank all of the region officers and members who helped to make this year in Zone 4 a successful one.  I was honored to be invited to and welcomed at so many outstanding events; I only wish that I could have attended even more.  I am extremely pleased to see so many regions working together to hold wonderful events, which has helped our zone to become a more cohesive unit, an important goal of mine since becoming Zone Rep.

  During an unseasonably warm weekend this autumn, ARPCA held their first Club Race in 14 years at the Pittsburgh International Race Complex. The newly refurbished track is 2.8 miles with 19 turns and 128 feet of elevation change. In addition to the myriad of classes that usually run Zone 4 Club Races, this weekend included a Vintage Class as well as the 944 Cup Championship East. The weekend began with a combination advanced HPDE and  test and tune day to help the drivers’ learn this new track.  The following day provided practice runs and fun races. 
  On Friday night, the region hosted an Oktoberfest event at the track open to everyone. While we all enjoyed the wonderful German food and beer, we were entertained with live music.  Saturday were the Sprint races and the 944 Cup banquet, and on Sunday they held the Vintage Sprint 3 race followed by the 90 minute Enduro.  It was a truly enjoyable weekend.  I also recently attended Northern Ohio and Eastern Buckeye Regions’ Horsepower and Harness Racing Event.  The evening included a car show, followed by a tech quiz, and we ate dinner as we watched the horse races.  The group sponsored the 5th race and at the conclusion of the race, we met the winning horse and jockey in the winner’s circle for a group picture.  I also recently traveled to Allendale, MI to attend Western Michigan Region’s November Dinner Drive. Everyone enjoyed the delicious Italian buffet dinner as well as lively conversation at this well attended event.

  Just because many of us have put our cars away for the winter, it doesn’t mean that we can’t experience the same camaraderie and friendship enjoyed during the driving season.  Many regions will be hosting Holiday Parties this month, and I plan to attend as many as I possibly can.  What a great way to kick off the holiday season by celebrating with your PCA friends.

  As the New Year begins, and the region calendars firm up, please remember to check your in boxes, region’s newsletter and website  for the most up to date information about events available to you.  

  I hope you will consider travelling to some of the outstanding events being held throughout Zone 4.


Thanks,
Michael
