and a request from Debbie Martens
you so much for your efforts to recruit workers for the regional at
Grattan this weekend (July 21 –22), however the race was cancelled due
to low car counts and low worker turnout. I truly appreciate the effort,
though. Please pass on this information to your workers.
would like to extend a personal invitation to you and your workers to
attend the inaugural 1000K of Gingerman on September 15 & 16. The endurance race will run on Saturday
beginning at 10:00am, with a time certain finish of 8:00pm should the lead
car not complete the full 1000K. We are planning a pig roast for Saturday
night, there will be shirts and other giveaways for all of the workers,
and many other goodies are in store. In addition, we are offering double
worker points for the endurance race!
information is available on the 1000K site at http://www.1000kgingerman.com./
I hope to see you there!
you once again for your assistance.

flags). If you would like to attend this event, please sign up at the

feet. The air crackles with the concussion of cars whipping by at more
than 300 kilometres an hour. Her days end with her eardrums buzzing and
her skin covered in flecks of rubber and loose asphalt.
retired kindergarten teacher from Windsor loves every minute of it. For
nearly 20 years Coburn and her husband have been part of a dedicated army
of volunteers who are as integral to events such as this weekend's Molson
Indy as the drivers who careen through the twisty streets or the pit crews
who tend to the car's every need.

and radio, they are stationed at various points around the track. Their
role is to observe every inch of the 1.755-mile circuit for anything -- a
spray of oil or a stray bolt -- that can affect drivers or the race.
