176442013 TrackChaser Week 42 Summary
- Oct 24, 2013TrackChasers:
(Weekly Listserve Update #147) The new-track slowdown that has been anticipated for the past few weeks finally arrived with the cooler weather, as this week six new 2013 track visits were added to the group total in my database.
Edward Corrado went to what "may" have been the final race at the Canaan Dirt Speedway in New Hampshire on Saturday.
The next day, Edward passed on his planned trip to Southwick Motorcross 338 in Massachusetts, as did Mike Knappenberger and he attended his old friend Fred Rahmer's last race, at Lincoln. But at least one TrackChaser did make it to Southwick: Mr. Brian Hickey. There may have been another, as Russ Currie had indicated he planned to attend what might have been the last race at that track as well. I have not heard from Rusty yet to find out if he was there or not.
Also on Sunday, Roland Vanden Eynde discovered a late season Autocross addition to the Dutch schedule at the Circuit Oude Baan.
The other three additions were from group Project Driver Derek Bell. Derek became the 44th of the year to be listed as having added a new track on my roamingtheraceways.com website. Derek added track variations in both Germany and England. This week we found out that Derek will be joining us at the race in the Bahamas in December, and look forward to that.
Tracks were added on Saturday and Sunday last week. The only new location and track was Roland's Netherlands visit to Circuit Oude Baan. New tracks have been added each and every one of the 42 weeks of 2013.
The six new track visits added brings the 2013 total to 739. That's not enough, we want 750 (and more)!
