News!!! / Art Smith passed away today 1/25/2019
« Last post by Art-Smiths-bro-in-law on January 25, 2019, 03:10:27 pm »
I'm sad to say the Art Smith passed away today, 1/25/2019 in Virginia. Art, my brother-in-law, was very active in Ecurie Pip and other SCCA events in WNY in the 1950's and the 1960's, amassing a huge collection of trophies and admiration from male relatives. Some of you older guys might remember him. He mostly ran MGA's with the number 8, and an ex-Sebring MGA #39. Funeral arrangements have not been made yet.  Please call or text me (Jim) at 585-727-1283 or FlewHuey@FrontierNet.net for info. If any of you remember my sister Carol Smith you could write to her at  22 Sandy Bottom Dr.   Deltaville, Virginia 23043.

2018 Results / Re: Event 7 - 9/30/2018 - New Era Field

Just an FYI - a Z06 runs in CAM S, not CAM C. I'd still be in second but by .131 second instead of .736.
