We are excited to announce a new date for our Road Atlanta
event:July 25-27, 2014
For several years now VDCA, with BOD member Ray Morgan's
help, has been trying to get a more favorable date at Road Atlanta than the
middle of February which we have had for some time now. There is now new
ownership of the track (NASCAR) and with it new on-site management. Just
this week they offered us this date change, and we have accepted it.
For those of you who have already made plans for attending
the event in Feb., I apologize for this late change in your plans. This date
negotiation is the reason you had not yet seen an entry form on our website
or a newsletter in your mailbox.
VDCA started conducting our event at Road Atlanta on the only
date we could get based on a membership survey that indicated our members
had a huge desire to race there. However, for the past 4 years, the number
of entries has been declining at this event, and it was becoming clear that
the membership does not feel this February date is acceptable. We hope we
can attract enough entries for this new summer date to allow us to continue
to go to Road Atlanta for many years to come. We need your support with this
new date because the track is not an inexpensive place to rent and your
entry fees are what allow it to happen.
Our first event for 2014 will now be VIR on the 3-day weekend
of April 11-13. For this event we will have more race groups and just as
much track time as usual since we will no longer have the pro formula car
group with us. We hope you will come and bring along lots of your racing
friends for this great event that offers wonderful weather and great food.
Oh yeah, and good racing too.
VDCA Race Director
