SENIOR TOUR RELEASES 2018 TENTATIVE SCHEDULE

STAR will be celebrating their 20th year and looking forward to another
 successful season!
STAR'S 18TH ANNUAL TOY DRIVE DAY 

HO HO HO!  It’s that time of the year again!

STAR held its 18th Annual Toy Drive Day on December 20th at the Pace Head Start 

Program in New Bedford, Ma

STAR serviced over 300 high risk/low income children who some would not have

 a Christmas without the support of the STAR members.   All summer long STAR 

would collect toys and donations to service these children, so we at STAR would like

 to say THANK YOU to those who help support this great cause. 

It is a big undertaking and Toy Drive Chairperson Tammy Barboza has been doing

 this for the past 18 years, where she makes a complete day with Santa and all to come

 and distribute the toys donated by the STAR members directly to each child.  Tammy 

makes sure all children receive something for Christmas.  So Hats off to you Tammy

 on a great job!

STAR would also like to thank the following members who took the time to come and

 be the elves at the Toy Drive, Dwight Lowes, Charlie Lima, Bill McCoy, 

Matthew Barboza, Michael Barboza , Mary Lima, Kevin McCarthy,  and of course 

Dennis Lowes who played Santa.  

It takes a special club and members to give something back to those who are less fortunate,

and we at STAR are proud to say we are one of those clubs.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!            

 

 

NEW ENGLAND RACERS AUCTION/TRADE SHOW

The New England Racers Auction/Trade Show was held on December 2nd at the 

MassMutual Center in Springfield, Ma.  On hand to represent STAR was President

 of STAR Charlie Lima with his red 2X coupe.  How fitting it was as STAR did a

 Christmas display and the red coupe fit in just like a red sleigh. 

It was great to see a lot of fans and STAR members stop by to say hello.  It was a good

 weekend for STAR with new members signing up for the upcoming year.

STAR would like to thank member Wade Gagner for helping tear down the display and

 help loading it up.                                 



SENIOR TOUR AUTO RACERS 19TH ANNUAL BANQUET

On November 18th the Senior Tour Auto Racers closed their 2017 racing season with 

their annual banquet.  This is STAR'S 19th season and it was great to see a large gathering 

of members and family come together to close out the season in a fashionable way.  It was

 great to see members from all over New England and Canada attend to bring the season 

to a close. 

The banquet was held at Whites of Westport in Westport, Ma.  Over 70 awards were 

presented to the Star Members for their dedication and true support of this great club.   

It has been an outstanding season for the Star Organization with unbelievable car counts

 every weekend.  Star tours all over the New England states bringing to the tracks 

"Vintage Racing at its Best"! As members sat down to a candle light four coarse meal, 

they were entertained with a slide show of over 400 candid photos from all the tracks 

and shows for the 2017 season, photos never seen by the members.  You could hear the

 laughter and jokes as the members let down their hair to have a great time!


STAR opened up its banquet with the introduction of the Officers and Board of Directors. 

President                   Charlie Lima

Vice-President           Skip Stearns

Secretary/Treasurer   Mary Lima

Board of Directors

 of the Wicked Good Racing Association.

Ric Mariscal with a donation towards the museum.


Next was the dedication service in memory of the STAR members we have loss but

 will never be forgotten.


 Now it was time for the awards presentations.
