Twenty beautiful cars from the Mercedes and Ferrari clubs enjoyed a fine afternoon on the track at the Motorsport Ranch in Cresson.  The weather could not have been better.  Members of both clubs availed of the opportunity to improve their driving skills and to get a taste of what their cars are capable of.  A number of club members came as spectators to see if they would like to give it a try next time.

The event started with a safety and introduction class.   We then proceeded to the track for our first lead and follow session - three groups each following a pace car.  Members who did not drive had a chance to experience the track as passengers.  A second classroom session followed, then we got on the track again for another pace car session.

After another classroom session, we were let loose on the track by ourselves. We broke up into “fast” and “faster” groups.  We were now allowed to pass on the straightaways. The instructors communicated constantly with the drivers via our standard FM radios.  A second solo session followed after our cars had a chance to cool down.

There is nothing like being on the track on a perfect Fall day!
