• April Fools Perry County Covered Bridge Run (No Foolin'!)

    Turkey Hill Minit Market

    We will form up at the Turkey Hill at 209 W King St in Shippensburg at 8:45 with a 9:00 departure. The Turkey Hill is a couple of minutes away from The Wheelhouse Cafe if you'd like to join us for one of the best breakfasts around before we set out. I don't recommend eating anything too heavy since we will hit the first half of the Dramamine before heading to our first bridge (road surface pretty rough in sections and lots of road sand from Upper Strasburg to Fannetsburg). We will visit three bridges before a pit stop in Blain and then five more bridges before stopping at The Local Table in Loysville for a bite to eat. After lunch we will tour five more bridges before ending the day at Susquehanna Soft Serve in Liverpool. Most bridges we can drive right through, a couple we will have to turn around and drive back through, a couple we can only drive by, and one, Clay's Covered Bridge in Little Buffalo State Park will be a 500 ft stroll to see. That will also be our afternoon pit stop. Rain date April 15.

    Virginia International Raceway

    For years a small (MINI) contingent of Carlisle MINI has motored to great racetracks on the east coast. We have been following the new generation of MINIs starting with the R53 that was campaigned by Randy Smalley's team RSR racing. Steve Dellinger traveled with this team for years serving as a crew member. Fast forward to the newer generation MINI and enter Luis Perocarpi and his LAP Motorsports Racing team.
