A Note from Mark Baldwin about the (Sacramento) Davis Autocross

Note from 2011 Event:
I will be the event marshall and run the drivers meeting.  I have a deputy working the gate to check that participants have paid and signed waiver prior to entering the track area.  I have three independent tech inspectors already volunteering  (Peter, Jacob, and Nick from Volvo Independent).

Will need volunteers at sign in table to collect money, have waivers signed, and stamp hands, etc.  Will need timers also. 
 
I am splitting the drivers into two groups.  The first group will be driving while the second group works the track (flaggers, and cone pick-up).  This will switch when the first group finishes their runs.

Note from 2012 event:
Will be needing volunteers on the friday evening before the autoX (March 27) to set up the course, and finalize the set-up. I will also need help after the event to wrap it up so we can get the autoX rehab party going at my place. I will have a dedicated car wash area with supplies and my lift/shop will be open for any incidents that occured during the day. Do we want to take up a collection after the autoX for the BBQ, or I can front it, and put out a contribution jar. You are responsible for your own "sodas". Just drop me your info if you plan on volunteering.

2012 Note:

I put out a call for judges and volunteers for Davis earlier today. The Chapter's are trying hard to make this the event of the year, but in order to do so we need volunteers. If you are coming and can offer a bit of time either for the Auto-X or the Car Show and Swap Meet on Sunday we need to hear from you. The more bodies we have the less each of us have to work. Think of it as a Habitat for Humanity Volvo style.

We want to break some records this year. The record attendance at Davis is about 125 (126 IIRC) cars. Sell out is appx 150 cars. Bring em out and lets have to close the gate to entries. Several sponsors have already committed with lots in store. We also have a Volvo North America Regional Market Manager interested in getting involved, but we need to show him that we can put together a event worthy of their participation. In order to do this we need Volvo owners to come out in force!

Bring it!

[14th Annual] Davis Meet Weekend
(As seen on pages 15-17 in July/August 2012 Rolling, Vol. 30, No. 4)
By Elizabeth Brown & Dick Thomas

The 14th Annual Northern California Volvo Weekend got underway on Saturday, April 28, 2012—a warm, clear, sunny day—with the Sacramento Chapter sponsoring the 3rd Annual Autocross at a new larger location on the old Mather Air Force Base in Rancho Cordova, CA, just east of Sacramento.

Mather Airport made the new larger space available to us to test its use for autocross events. We found the area to be perfect for autocross as the area consists of smooth concrete, has no elevation changes, is clean, and has over 100,000 square feet of open space. The space has been secured for future events and provides ample room for future growth!

The larger space afforded a larger course that allowed for bursts of speed as well as tight turns that challenged the driver’s skill and moxie, equalizing the advantage between the rear wheel drive and front wheel drive cars. Competitors ranged from novice to expert and competed in Volvos ranging from an 1800 to a C30. Twenty five drivers competed in two groups and were allowed four runs of one lap each to achieve the best time of the day.

A black modified 242 with multiple drivers took first and second place. Ryan Randall took top honors this year with his clean run of 42:84 seconds, while David Cain finished second with his clean run of 44:36 seconds. Rounding out the leaderboard in a black V50 was Kyle Eisenbach with his clean run of 44:81 seconds.

After all the Volvos had finished their runs, non-Volvos were allowed to run the course for a $5 per lap donation to charity. Participants also included Volvo competitors looking to improve their times or drive another competitor’s car.

From the beginning, the Autocross has been organized as a charity event, and this year’s event proceeds benefited the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (http://www.lls.org/) on behalf of Delbert Stapp’s “Man of the Year” fundraising competition for the charity (http://www.mwoy.org/sac/).

Following the Autocross awards ceremony, Sacramento Chapter President Mark Baldwin hosted the 2nd Annual Autocross Rehab Party at his beautiful facility just a few miles away from the Autocross. This year’s Rehab party included a car wash area, available rack/equipment to assist with any repairs or mishaps from the day, music, catered BBQ dinner, a Disney Pixar “Cars” themed cake, and a car smash charity fundraiser that also benefited the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The great weather continued on Sunday, April 29, when the Golden Gate and Sacramento Chapters co-sponsored the 14th Annual Davis Car Show and Swap Meet, drawing 114 registered cars and two hundred Volvo enthusiasts from all along the west coast, Nevada, and one from Missouri, to the City of Davis, 15 miles west of Sacramento / 75 miles northeast of San Francisco. As an added bonus, Davis Central Park was double booked with the Davis Flea Market and Music on the Green increasing the cross-pollination of the Davis, student, and Volvo communities.

While the event has continued to grow over the years, the small town charm remains as old friends and new acquaintances gather to unveil restoration/modification progress, share part resources, and discuss everything Volvo. Whatever your Volvo needs, you are likely to find someone with the answer at the Davis car show and swap meet.

Volvo P1800 and 850 were featured cars to celebrate their 50th and 20th Anniversaries, respectively. Volvos from 1956 to today were represented, including Lars Jansson’s rare P1900, Bruce Ackerman’s race proven 1800, Mike Dudek’s Masters Class winning low-mileage 1800ES (originally owned by Allen Funt of Candid Camera fame), and ipd’s tricked-out XC60R Design Project. Other highlights included a large swap area with Volvo parts and collectables as well as sponsor/vendor booths from Ackerman’s Servicing Volvos, Inc., ipd, RSI, and Turner Volvo to see the latest offerings and directly interact with these enthusiast-friendly companies.

The Davis Car Show is a judged event and this year featured new event categories. First place award winners were presented a plaque with their award category while second place winners were given a large ribbon. Chief Show Judge, Jon Manji, and his team had their hands full with so many great cars. The first place awards were given in the following stock (S) and modified (M) categories:
444/544: (S) Mike Parmley, 1964 544; (M) Wally and Marcia Russell, 1962 544

C30: (S) na; (M) Justin Lee 2008 C30
Best in Show: Kim Phillips 2007 S60R

There were two special awards: The Golden Rod Award to recognize an individual that has consistently shown improvement in caring for and presenting his car at the Davis Show and the GGVCOA Heritage Award to recognize an individual who has represented, along with his car, the best of the Volvo brand tradition over the history of the Davis Show.
Goldenrod Award: Jesse and Ryan Rangle, 1966 1800 (Jesse is currently serving in Afghanistan)
GGVCOA Heritage Award: Lars Jansson 1956 P1900

Thank you to the numerous sponsors and volunteers who helped staff and support the autocross and car show as well as to everyone who attended this year’s event and made it such a great weekend.
