Fan Notes

On Friday September 26, Charlotte and I attended the Champ Car Fan Appreciation Driver Autograph Session.

Charlotte got every driver to sign each driver page in her race program. We were holding up the line and the handlers were urging us to move along but Char kept talking to each driver and getting the autographs. It's going to be a real cool keepsake.

I got Charlotte's picture with American Spirit driver and 1996 CART champion Jimmy Vassar. I also got Charlotte's picture with racing legend Mario Andretti who was behind the wheel of the new Ford GT

I was pleased to get another racing legend, Emerson Fittipaldi to autograph my 1977 US Grand Prix program.

I was disappointed to not have that program with me when we saw Mario. I think he would have gotten a kick out of seeing it. He finished second in that race. I would have gotten a kick out of his signing it!
