- About me:
Joined SCCA in April 1980 with Steel Cities Region. Served as the regional Solo Events Chair.
Moved to Albany, NY area in 1983 and joined Mohawk Hudson Region.
First autocross on Labor Day 1979 in the Pittsburgh area. Knew I liked the people when a member who was a nuclear engineer was searching for a break in the wiring for the timing system; found that the store had simply tied two 100' coils of wire in a knot instead of soldering them, and shouted out, "I found the problem ... the wires weren't tied tight enough."
Designed my first course at North Park, PA in November 1979. Enjoy designing autocross courses. Have presented autocross course design seminars since 1988 while on the Solo Events Board and beyond. Have designed two National Championship courses and many Tours/Divisionals. Too many Regional courses to count.
First National Championship event in 1982. Took 4th in CStock. National Champion in 1984 in CStock, and 2007, 2008 in CMod. Attended my 25th National Championship event in 2013.
Solo Events Board 1987 through 1992. Trivia: Suggested "Tour" as the name for the new at that time National Solo series of events.
Suggested the idea for a Course Advisory Committee and have served since its inception in the 2000s. Serve on the Modified Advisory Committee. Attended first Solo Safety Steward training at Nationals in 1982, Chicago. SSS Instructor. Youth Steward. Served on the Solo Site Aquisition Committee.
Club Racing license in the early 1980s for a short period.
Currently serve as my region's Membership Chairman, and as the NeDiv Solo Safety Steward.
