Sad news

It is with great sadness that we meet the passing of long time Golden Gate member, Carl Switzer.

Carl was an avid contributor to GGR, supporting the autocross and track programs and also serving on the board as Track and Competition Chair.  In these roles Carl helped shape the GGR Track program, making it one of the most successful DE, Time Trial and Club Racing programs in the nation.  Carl was an excellent driver and racer, and passed along his love of the track to so many as a nationally trained DE Instructor.  Carl will be sorely missed by those who knew him.


I’d like to thank Tim Smith for this brief eulogy.  Tim joined GGR’s track program while it was under Carl’s leadership and subsequently succeeded him as its chair.
