Holiday Party

And just like that, we were down to our last event of 2022. We had an active year with Cars ‘n Coffee at several different locations, the Porsche Corral at Virginia International Raceway, and other interesting events.

Our evening began with time to meet old friends and make new ones while enjoying the hors d’oeuvres. With about sixty people in attendance, there were many interesting conversations taking place. Our room at the Vinton War Memorial was large enough for easy moving around and expertly prepared for our group. Beautifully decorated tables added to the enjoyment of our event.

Following the social hour, a business meeting was conducted. While the yearend does not require many items to be covered, all are important to the function of Blue Ridge Region. Officers for 2023 was one important announcement.

Time for dinner, and oh what a dinner it was. From salad to main course the selections were plentiful and delicious. Then, if you saved room, there were deserts.

With the winners of the silent auction announced, it was time to say goodbye and plan for 2023. – Dave Hogan

Call for Volunteers

Happy Holidays to All!

It’s gotten colder, I racked the last of the leaves today, the Christmas decorations are going up and the Zone 2 Club Race is less than four months away!

This email is the first call for volunteers to support the race in 2023.  The date is in March, instead of June, again and likely to stay that way for at least the near future. I’m not looking for a final commitment but please let me know if you’re interested in volunteering and what position you’re interested in.

We’re planning the same format as last year: three race groups and one Advanced DE group.

Thanks and have a great holiday!

Pfaff: New Porsche 911 GT3 R “Very Positive” Step Forward

Porsche’s new 911 GT3 R has been described as a “very positive” step forward, particularly in its serviceability according to Pfaff Motorsports team manager Steve Bortolotti, who has praised the enhancements to the new-for-2023 model.

Pfaff, which won the inaugural GTD Pro title in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship this year, took delivery of its Type-992 Porsche, chassis No. 1, last month and is representing the German manufacturer at this week’s IMSA-sanctioned test at Daytona International Speedway. More
