STAR TOUR CLOSES SEASON -17TH ANNUAL BANQUET

On November 14th the Senior Tour Auto Racers closed their 2015 racing season with their annual banquet.  This is STAR'S 17th season and it was great to see a large gathering of members and family come together to close out the season in a fashionable way.  It was great to see members from all over New England attend to bring the season to a close. 


The banquet was held at Whites of Westport in Westport, Ma.  Over 60 awards were presented to the Star Members for their dedication and true support of this great club.   It has been an outstanding season for the Star Organization with unbelievable car counts every weekend.  Star tours every weekend to the New England tracks to bring "Vintage Racing at its Best". As members sat down to a four coarse meal, they were entertained with a slide show of over 400 candid photos from all the tracks and shows for the 2015 season, photos never seen by the members.  You could hear the laughter and jokes as the members let down their hair to have a great time!


STAR opened up its banquet with the introduction of the Officers and Board of Directors.  It was great to see the present and the pass officers in attendance.


Then the Board of Directors presented owner of ProNyne Motorsports Museum, Ric Mariscal with a donation towards the museum.


 Now it was time for the awards presentations.

 

Appreciation Awards.

 The Special Awards are covered and no one knows the results until the night of the banquet.  The suspense of who would receive the award has always been thrilling! 

Heat awards - they worked hard for these and the best man wins!!!! Point awards, Star is proud to say they had 4 Champions this year and it was funny that there was one from each state.  New Hampshire Skip Stearns, Massachusetts Charlie Lima,  Rhode Island Ed Mulligan and Connecticut Scott Poirier.  So for the second time STAR was challenged to a Face book Shootout and STAR accepted the challenge.  So STAR did a 10 lap which was a ten day, a lap a day shootout challenge.  The state that got the most likes won the Face book Challenge.  I have to say it was so much fun and great to interact with so many new people on Face book from the East Coast to the West Coast. Congratulations to the winner of the Facebook Challenge Charlie Lima – State of Massachusetts.
