Furrin Group: West Michigan Sportscar Club
Upcoming event information!
And the excellent events keep coming. We had our first GVSU weekend in a few years. GVSU was kind enough to resurface the lot, and the weather was excellent. Except for a few timing issues and some vehicle issues, it was a great weekend.
Our summer picnic in Johnson Park brought in some old members from the 70’s that we haven’t seen in awhile, and some new members who are looking to get involved. With this type of interest, we should still be going strong at our 75th anniversary in 2029.
Our next event is July 23rd, Fun in the Sun Rally. A road rally on the fun roads around the Grand Rapids area, the course is all paved. This will be a competitive event but not a race. We will be on open roads with the public. Because there will be a given route to follow, you will need a navigator, this could be your friend, spouse, parent, child, someone to can read instructions. Teams must be of at least 2 people, but not limited to that. Bring your whole family! There will be Time Speed Distance (TSD) section(s) requiring to stay on time driving the route at the speeds given. Your goal is to arrive at the mostly unknown checkpoints at the precise moment. You’ll be penalized for being early or late. Scoring is calculated using Richta GPS checkpoints app available for iOS and Android, you’ll need a GPS enabled smart phone/tablet, its best to have a data connection, but not necessary. There will be transit sections that will have a “scavenger hunt” aspect, looking for land marks and road signs. These will be part of your score but will not be needed to stay on course. You will not need to get out the car to find these. The route will be 100 miles or less and vehicles need to be road legal, no other equipment is required
E – Equipment unrestricted.

Our monthly meetings at a regular location will start again in August. We have two locations that have offered their locations. We will be contacting the two locations that have offered and will try both between now and the December meeting. Once we pick a location, we will notify through regular channels. These meetings are on the third Tuesday of every month, with a few exceptions. You can participate in all meetings in-person or via virtual Zoom meeting. If you want to see what our club is all about, come to a meeting or an event. We would love to see new and old members, and non-members.
Stay tuned on our Facebook page for new events and meetings. See you at an event!
