2013 TrackChaser Week 20 Summary
(Weekly Listserve Update #125) During the past week, 11 new race track visits, ten of which were from this year, were added to the database/website. Those 11 were added by eight different TrackChasers.
Three people added two tracks last weekend. Mike Knappenberger added two in Michigan, Chris Tyrrel two in Indiana, and Roland Vanden Eynde two in Denmark. Roland became the first (and probably the only ever) from the group to see races at ten different tracks in Denmark. No one else has been to more than three. Denmark was the 11th different country visited by the group in 2013. One of the Denmark tracks, Mindeparken, was the only new location and track added to the database this week.
Single new tracks were added by Pat Eckel in PA, Guy Smith in MI, Edward Corrado in PA, and Dave Garrison in IN.
The other was another newly confirmed "old" 1990's track by Will White. Will has been going through his records, assembling his all-time "race" (not track) list, and while in the process of doing so, discovered a pair of missing tracks to add.
I added a new page to the website for the third consecutive week. A "TrackChaser Group Photo Gallery" was started. It's a work in progress for sure. If anyone has additional photos of our group that they would like to contribute, they would be welcome at any time. If any photos are posted that either the photographer or anyone in the photo does not want published on my website, just let me know and I'll get them off for you ASAP.
Once again we added tracks on four different days last week, and in all 20 weeks of 2013 so far.
The ten tracks added from 2013 brings the season total to 191 by 33 different TrackChasers. With the Memorial Day Weekend coming up, I assume we will easily top 200 by next week. Colin Casserley has one already. But that's not enough, we want more!
