NASCC road racing spectating -- September 14-15

The ranks of the Spec Miata class at the Northern Alberta Sports Car Club's road racing will again increase for the last event of the season at Castrol Raceway, as a four-car purchase just occurred. One of our former club members is one of the people who have just acquired a car, and at least two of these new cars will join the existing seven or eight SM cars for the last event, including club member Mark B. Added to that, there are other Miatas running in other classes of club members Vitor P., Julian P., and Brian S. So, let's go out again to spectate and cheer them on. The schedule for the racing can be found on in the Racing / Forms & Downloads menu. Hope to see you out there in the grand-stand. Bring a camera and long-lens! PS: The racing is excellent. PPS: Did we mention that we finally have a permanent road course in Edmonton! PPPS: This is in our backyard folks...get out there!!!

Fall Colours Run -- Saturday, September 21

The Fall Colours Run event is Saturday, September 21. We'll meet at Gateway Park for 12:30pm to sign the event waiver, take photos, and such, leaving at 1:00pm. The drive will follow our favourite route to the south and west, with 30min rest stop in Seba Beach, before heading further west and then north and east, concluding at the newly reopened Soda Jerks in St. Albert. Each half of the drive is approximately 90min, so we should be in St. Albert at Soda Jerks by about 4:30...just in time for an early light dinner for those that want to stay.

Club Meeting -- Thursday, September 19

Dash for the Pass V -- September 6 to 9

Still requiring it's pithy sub-title, this year's Dash for the Pass event is September 6-9. Those who've made their hotel reservations will be departing on Friday, September 6 for Halcyon Hot Springs (good food, good drink, wonderful soak), then Rossland on Saturday by way of all of the good interior roads, Radium Hot Springs on Sunday by the remaining good interior roads (another good soak), and then home on Monday. Too bad if you're not able to attend... If by way of a miracle you can, contact Martin S. immediately!!!
