tors. Competing with the same
people regularly brings about a
relationship. Racing on Sunday
afternoons, followed by a few beverages and dinner creates special
friendships. I raced so hard on
Sundays that I had muscle soreness
in my arms to start the week.
We had many people who hardly
ever missed an event and we had

a schedule that had us racing
almost every other Sunday so as to
complete the ten dates before the
spring outdoor events started. The
camaraderie was and still remains
special.
dB: What changes would you like to
see in Karting or in the chapter as a
whole?

Steve: The Karting program has
gone through a down period while
the karting tracks went out of
business and began to return.
With United Karting we have a fully
professional operation to support
competitive racing. The only limitation is the change in seasons
since the track is outdoors. I think
the future is bright for the return of

karting to the chapter and the exciting plans United has for the future.
We are always interested in having
ladies come out to race. We've had
some regulars from time to time
and we hope more ladies will try out
our program. Anne Saul always
made sure to remind us that we had
been beaten by a girl.
dB: How would newcomers become
involved?
Steve: No experience is required.
We all have to start somewhere so
we are more than happy to instruct
or coach anyone new to karting.
We conducted a Karting School in
the past and maybe we should do it
again. With a business like United
Karting working with us, I suspect
they would also be happy to help.
dB: Tell us a little about your current (or previous) cars.
Steve: My first BMW was a 1972
2002 that I bought new from
what was then Manhattan Auto.
For some years I owned the 1967
1600-2 while I gradually rebuilt it
and eventually put Alpina fender
flares on it. In 1977 I purchased a
