Letter From Bill Armitage - SRO World Challenge Weekend

Bill Armitage has sent RSI a letter regarding the SRO World Challenge weekend:

Good day;

Thank You everyone that participated in the SRO Americas weekend at Watkins Glen.  We had a great time working with everyone.  We hope you enjoyed the racing all weekend with all our groups that supported the weekend.

It was great seeing many familiar faces and working with everyone again from RSI.  We certainly enjoyed the weekend and were treated to some good weather and even better racing.

We appreciate the hard work given by everyone invited.  We know it is difficult to work solo, but we could hardly tell that was the case.  The flagging was solid all weekend and the communications were just as solid especially when it came to the Track Limits and some of the bigger incidents that occurred during the weekend.  We cannot Thank You enough.

Thank you to Maury Starr for his support in making sure everyone was ready to go and providing the necessary support to ensure everyone had the tools to be successful during the weekend.  

We look forward to returning to The Glen in 2022 and look forward to seeing many of you then.  I hope everyone will winter well and again Thank You for supporting the SRO Americas weekend.

Bill Armitage and Bonnie Aarseth
SRO Americas
