Roebling Road Time Trial – Great Season ender!
Many of our SEDIV Time Trial and PDX drivers braved the cold to come to Roebling Road in mid November to participate in the LAST CHANCE Time Trial! Some came for seat time on a legendary southern track. Some came to compete against many of the best TT drivers. Some came to clench their position in the 2014 SCCA Southeastern Division Time Trial Championship. ALL came to have fun and that …they DID!
Savannah, GA weather was chilly both mornings but warmed up with little wind. The corner workers and event staff did a great job of communicating, keeping the course safe, and handling flow of the event. We owe a big thanks to Track Management (Kaye McCloy), Registration (Wanda Cecil), Control (the Buells), Timing and Scoring (Neil Harmon), Mark Rothermel (Safety Steward), Steve and Vicki Eckerich along with Shane Findlan (Tech), Bob DeLoatch (Flagging Chief) and all the course workers who braved the cold so the event could happen! Our drivers appreciate you ALL! Aside from a few radiator hoses that decided to open up, the event ran smoothly and the groups got all the track time they wanted. Many of our Time Trial drivers volunteered to help instruct for our PDX (Performance Driving Experience) group sessions. This is a great opportunity to get quality instruction on the track in a safe setting. All PDX drivers (Novices driving with instructors and Intermediate and Advanced classes) did a great job!
