Seldom does an individual contribute to the Club in such a way that he starts a worker specialty based on his talents, but such is the case for South Bend Region’s Lloyd Loring. While participating as a successful driver in a Porsche 356 and working on South Bend’s traveling tech team, Loring discovered his skill and passion for announcing. Serving first at local events and in the CENDiv Solo series, Loring quickly became the first announcer at Solo Nationals. Although largely retired from announcing, the 92-year-old Loring continues to call select South Bend Region road races and autocross events. Loring is a member of the CenDiv Hall of Fame and a Curt Thews Award winner from his home Region for the member who has given unselfishly to the success of the Region. The Great Lakes Division has recognized his legacy by awarding the Lloyd Loring and Jeanne Ruble Achievement Award annually at the Great Lakes Division Solo Championships Spring Training weekend. Still known as “The Voice of Solo,” his trademark “Are you ready for this?” remains music to National autocrossers’ ears.
