AMSAT Goes to the Races -- April 27



This coming Sunday, April 27th, AMSAT will have its premiere at a major 
sports car race -- The Bosch Engineering 250 at the Virginia 
International Raceway (VIR) Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series; VIR is 
located near Danville, VA on the VA/NC border.


Brad Jaeger (see http://www.bradjaeger.com) is the son of AMSAT member 
Jim Jaeger (K8RQ) and is piloting the bright yellow #77 Doran Racing 
Kodak Ford machine (which you can see at 
http://www.bradjaeger.com/?q=node/110 and at 
http://www.grand-am.com/rolex/drivers/driver.cfm?did=1110).


K8RQ has arranged for AMSAT to display its colors on Brad's car on a 
"space available" basis. If you can make it to Danville for the weekend, 
the detailed  schedule of events can be found at 
http://www.grand-am.com/assets/08VIROfficialSched2.pdf. But if you can't 
make it, the race will be carried on the cable SPEED channel from 12:00 
to 15:00 EDT on Saturday, May 3rd.
