Saturday, August 2, 2014, Registration opens at Noon
LRDC Spec Miata Summer Member Race
Presented by Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation
Dear fellow racers, dog lovers and friends!
Please join me on Saturday, August 2nd for a very special Member Race. I am thrilled that our club has partnered with the amazing Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation. For every driver who participates you’ll receive a very special badge of honor for your race car.
For more than five decades Fidelco has been improving the lives and mobility of men and women who are blind across North America. Fidelco’s remarkable guide dogs propel blind clients – including war heroes, mountain climbers and Paralympic athletes, musicians, teachers and college students – from a world of darkness into lives of limitless possibility and achievement.
Through their eyes and Fidelco’s generous supporters, Fidelco German Shepherd Guide Dogs Share the Vision®and provide increased independence and mobility to men and women who are blind, and who live in a world that presumes the ability of everyone to see.
Fidelco has trained and placed over 1,400 German Shepherd Guide Dogs throughout North America – in 41 states and five Canadian provinces. Fidelco also has placed hundreds of its German Shepherd Dogs with law enforcement agencies, first responders, search and rescue, and missing child recovery organizations to help protect our fellow citizens and keep our communities safe.
Fidelco will be providing race winners’ awards and special gifts to all drivers.
Your sense of adventure will be tested off-track, too, when you experience a “blindfold walk” on an obstacle course led by a Fidelco German Shepherd Guide Dog (chicanes included – no helmets required!). Your family and friends will meet Fidelco dogs and puppies, too, while you’re racing.
Who is eligible? LRDC and Monticello Members who hold a racing license issued by a recognized sanctioning body, or members who have been signed off by either club’s race director. Approved member-guest drivers are welcome for a fee of $500 per driver.
For more information and to RSVP, please contact Jeanette at Jeanette@limerock.com at your first convenience!
I hope to see you and your family at Lime Rock on August 2nd . . . and thank you in person for “Racing for Fidelco!”
