February 2018 Motoring / Social Report
By Michael Griffin, VP/Motoring Director
Our annual membership bash and awards banquet sold out again this year to the tune of 160 satisfied P-car people. The catered event upped the ante in the food department with a terrific buffet, and a bar tended by new Track Chair Jim McClelland and crew. The many Auto Cross awards were made by outgoing chair Andrew Blyholder and our new AX chief, Ed Hunter. Newly elected GGR President Brad Kellett presented the club awards, featuring Enthusiast of the Year Himanshu Patel, and the Perc Bliss Award to GGR’s Treasurer Bryan Phan. Family of the Year award went to Ron & Michelle Castle, for their work presenting FunRuns. Following all this eating, drinking and awarding, the group moved up the street to the Candy Store where we saw an impressive display of race and collector cars, assembled in a former Chrysler dealership in downtown Burlingame. Of particular interest were some Porsche racers that were hot off the track, providing all of us an eye-full of what a full-bore competition machine looks like. The weather was sunny, the camaraderie was in full force and a good time was had by all.
