In Memoriam

On August 15, 2015 we tragically lost a kind and enthusiastic member of the race family, Shunan Zhu. On August 29th there will be an event to honor him. The group will be meeting at 3 pm in Creswell in the Rays parking lot at 190 Emerald Parkway. From there they will be going on a slow back road drive to the Roaring Rapid Pizza in Glenwood. Approximate drive time to Roaring Rapid Pizza will be 1.45 2 hours, which includes a couple of picture stops in between. More information on this can be found here.


Everyone is invited to join and support the memory of our friend. Any questions can be directed to Jeremy Dey at deyhard2@yahoo.com or 541-736-6498

On May 27th Terry Hinesley passed away

What’s Your Life And Well-Being Worth?

This will be pretty direct. Hill climbs, like many motorsports events, entail risk. You sign a waiver, and you’re basically on your own. Even if you don’t drive beyond your abilities, such as mechanical failures, like broken axles, can happen. In an instant, you can change from a driver into a “passenger,” with no control over where you might end up.

Many organizations, such as SCCA and CACC, are requiring a HANS or a like device of a different manufacturer, for motorsports events. My personal opinion is that it will be only a matter of time that NHA requires these devices as well.

Yes, we’re talking about a $600 plus expense. But, what if you went off course and sustained serious injuries, which might have been prevented by using a neck restraint device? Do you want to play with your kids/grandkids from a wheelchair? Or worse? Not if you can help it. In reality, this is pretty cheap insurance.

Do you buy a “Starbucks” at the drive through every day? Kick that habit, prepare your coffee in a thermos, and you can probably save enough in less than a year, to buy the device of your choice.

We have been lucky so far.
