Thursday, July 22nd opens the 2010 Saab Owners Convention in Aurora, Ohio with Track Day at Nelson Ledges.
If you are a Saab Club member and just happen to be in the Northeastern Ohio area on Thursday the 22nd, why not join us to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Longest Day at Nelson Ledges victory by a Saab 900 Turbo? Attendees will have the opportunity to drive on the very course where SAAB's turbocharged 900 showed its stuff to the country back in 1980! Tickets are still available online.
David Wolfe, crew chief on the Nelson Ledges winning 900 auto, is our special guest at SOC2010. He will be at the Track Event and will give a short talk on the Longest Day activities at the Thursday evening Sponsor Dinner.
We will be generally following the Nelson Ledges "FunDays
" rules. FunDays were created for the amateur sports car enthusiast; low performance cars and club racers -- people that have always wanted to experience the thrill of "On Track" driving but in a safe, controlled atmosphere. There will be a tech inspection where wheel lug torque and general vehicle condition will be assessed, and participants will be divided into groups based on vehicle performance and driver experience.
