Well the argument is long over. I lost. However when I asked my friend in Wolfsburg, he replied that some would argue the Nordschleife is "a thing" and should be "das". So even Germans can disagree. Correction Germans ALWAYS disagree.

Your friend would probably also argue that "butter" in German is either Die Butter or Das Butter, however we (German) Southerners say "Der Butter" :-)

Default Race Volunteer Signups - Now Live

Volunteer Sign Up Form now Live on Motorsport Reg.
http://msreg.com/cr17vols
Come race with us!

Registration ends in 3 months on October 12, 2017 11:59 PM EDT

ARPCA's 2017 ClubRace is approaching quickly and now's the time to sign up to get CLOSE TO THE ACTION and make it a HUGE Success!!

"ARPCA...Fueled by Volunteers"



With a few short months to go, the ARPCA is looking for volunteers to assist in each capacity of the event (starting Thurs Oct 12 thru Sun Oct 15).

In order to ensure everyone can enjoy the spectacular racing action at PittRace during the event, volunteers are being recruited to work 1/2 day shifts for most positions. Ideally to ensure consistency, we are looking for volunteers to register for more than just one shift i.e. AM or PM (afternoon) shift on multiple days. Please select areas of interest or positions in which you're interested in serving. We CANNOT guarantee you will get your selection but we will do our best to accommodate.

CLICK HERE FOR FULL DESCRIPTION OF POSITIONS AVAILABLE!

We’re holding the 944 Cup Nationals East championship race at this event along with the regional finale double races for the North, South and Midwest Chapters for all 3 classes: SP1, SP2, and SP3.

Plus, the 944 Cup Annual Awards banquet will be that saturday evening at the track. Every 944 Cup racer entered will go home with a prize: http://44cup.com/sponsors, maybe more than one.
