For Details, go to the Speed Ventures autocross page. Click on the link below.

TO Register for AUTOCROSS at Auto Club Speedway, GO HERE

First Select Your “Lap Time”. Since none of us have been on the Big Lot Course before, I’d go with 4-5 min. Seems like a long time for an Autocross, but who knows how long the course will be.

When you register, select SATURDAY, select the $99 option, tell them about your car, select a car number (don’t worry you won’t really need one which will be explained later) and select “I don’t want timing” (that’s what the pad and pen are for) and tell them if you wish to rent a helmet (bring your own if you can – who wants to wear someone else’s smelly helmet)

  1. Drivers under 18 must have a parent present and/or submit a signed waiver at registration. No passengers under 18 years of age are allowed. See their FAQ page for full details.
  2. You must have a Snell rated helmet (either Auto or Motorcycle) rated 2010 or newer. The preferred helmet is an SA rated helmet. If you do not have a helmet and cannot obtain or borrow one, please go back to step 6 to rent one from us. Don’t forget the Carte Blanche option which allows you to run in all the groups so you only have to take a break when you want to.

The regular option ($99) means this: the organizers will divide the drivers into two or more groups. If more drivers arrive during the day, other groups may be added. Lets say there are two run groups, A and B. A group lines up to run and the group runs one car after another for a half hour or so. Then B group lines up to run and the group runs one car after another for a half hour or so. This continues until lunch. After lunch the groups start where they left off until the day ends. the Carte Blanche ($169) option allows you to run in group A and then in group B and then in group A, and so on, until you drop from exhaustion. Personally, I’d go for the regular option.

Mystery Lunch Run

January 27, 2019

Simon and Terry Bleeker treated us to what they had titled the “Historical/Haunted MLR” and also described as a loooong run (one of Jim Sommars’ favorite kind) to start off the new year of 2019. They had 35 cars send in RSVPs and someone counted 35 cars at Kohl’s at one point, so let’s agree that it was a healthy sized group of 35 cars and 60-70 COTV folks.

We had a real mix of old and new, guest and member. Don Sforzini brought along his BRAND NEW orange ZR-1 and his son, Brent, drove the not very old yellow C7R. That way there was room for Brent’s wife, Andrea, and their son Nick. So, a whole Sforzini Corvette Club of its own! Thank heavens Ronette Garduno takes time to provide us with the names of the many guests she and Captain Norm bring along. This time we had Swan, Eric and Darrel (so we had Darrel and Daryl and no Larry!) Mickey Diehl had her friend and frequent co-pilot Ellen along for the ride. Lana Jenkin brought along a familiar face, her friend Cathy, although she tried to fool us by having Cathy wear Keith’s name tag. Bill Watson brought his own designated driver, their oldest son, Wayne. Our newest new members, Joe and Barbie Orsini, were there with their beautiful 2005 blue convertible.

The first section of the run was the “historic” part. We paraded along Butterfield Stage to Murrieta Hot Springs to Winchester Rd/Hwy 79, through the actual little old part of Winchester, and onto 74 W into what used to be Romoland but is now part of Menifee. The old barn used to house the Motte Romo Farms produce market but now contains a mid-sized car collection, where we got to visit a 1931 Cadillac originally owned and restored by our own member, Bob Wells. There is also a very interesting exhibit of the history of the area and its agricultural beginnings in the upstairs section for those who might want to pay a return visit.

After a short break for coffee and donuts and a visit to the facilities, we all saddled up again and headed out for the longer drive to our lunch destination. Trying to keep 35 cars together on a straight road is difficult enough, but this route took us the “scenic” way through Perris and Lake Elsinore and we had to stop often to gather up the strays. Somewhere along this part, we lost some of the group, who decided that they had experienced enough fun for one day. We ended up at lunch with not quite 35 cars. As you might guess when Lake Elsinore comes into the conversation, we headed up and over the dreaded Ortega Highway to San Juan Capistrano. There is always a lot of Sunday traffic – sports cars and motorcycles abound and of course, today we added a bunch of Corvettes into the mix. As Glenn Crowther commented when we were finally at lunch, the drive was spectacular as the recent rains have made the hillsides very green. If you missed the ride you missed COTV’s sighting of the new mid-engine C8. Well, we think it was a C8 ,as it was heavily camouflaged.  

Our lunch destination was El Adobe de Capistrano on Camino Capistrano. The “haunted” part of the run was some of the history behind the restaurant and many COTV members checked out the small prison area, which is now used for a wine cellar. Terry had arranged for 3 lunch choices: a huge hamburger with all the fixings; a combination plate of enchilada and taco; or huevos rancheros. After a lot of food and plenty of conversation, the group split up to head home however they wanted. Some even chose to stay in San Juan for a pleasant Sunday walk around.

Thanks to Terry and Simon for a great start to the new year! Bravo!

Breakfast Social

January 16, 2019

Penfold’s Cafe & Bakery

COTV is sort of like the postal service but with better vehicles…neither rain nor fog nor bad traffic will deter us from our appointed duties, eating together as often as possible.  Amazingly, only 10 of the folks who had signed up let the bad weather deter them and their places were taken by some late minute additions.  All told there were 37 hungry, then happy, faces around the breakfast table.

The original plan was to eat on the covered patio, but Storm Watch 2019 made for a change to the warmth and comfort of the indoor dining room.  Doug and Marilyn Glenore were the first on-site, actually beating Bruce Mofford on this occasion.  Mike Re came without Denise who was either baby- or dog-sitting, but took home breakfast for her.  Marsue Page came without Steve, who was on the road to Scottsdale for the Barrett-Jackson auction.  A newish member, Joe Orsini, came without his wife who is not an early riser and seemed to enjoy the company.  The rest were the usual suspects.

Doug and Marilyn brought a couple of the club-specific stadium blankets they purchased for those going on the 25th Anniversary caravan to the National Corvette Museum and used one for a “show and sell.”  According to the Southwest Section e-News letter, COTV is the first club to place an order.  As you can see by Wes’ photo, the blanket is an attractive, large and warm souvenir.  If you think one would look good in your family room or car, just let Marilyn know and she will make sure you get it.  She is also finalizing plans for our visit to Nashville and on to New Orleans, so keep an eye on your emails.

Well, thanks as usual go to Marilyn and Carol or Carol and Marilyn for planning another filling and satisfying get-together. Our stomaches are already looking forward to the next one.
