Hey everybody, the Alfa Club is having their annual Fall Challenge track event at Road America on October 9-10. Here's the official description: The Chicago Alfa Romeo Owners Club invites you to participate in the 2004 CAROC Fall Challenge at Road America Time Trial on Saturday and Sunday, October 9th and 10th. Come enjoy the beautiful fall colors and have lots of motor sports fun. The format will be open practices by class followed by timed runs. Touring will be at noon and will run for one hour. There will be timed runs in the afternoon. The timed format will be: 3/4 warm up lap, two full timed laps from corner 14 to 14, and into pit lane. This is done in solo fashion (no traffic, not wheel to wheel, no passing). This year we are going to increase your lapping track time by running fewer timed runs on Saturday. Safety requirements for Time Trialing are as follows: Car must pass safety tech inspection Helmets and seat belts are required Fixed roll bars are mandatory for open cars only For more information go to www.caroc.com This will be my first year at this event but by all accounts it is a blast. Non-Alfas are welcome; I know they've had the occasional Ferrari there in past years. Hope to see you there!
