The History Of Thunderhill According To David. Part One

General News

For those of you who remember the “Fractured Fairy Tales” segment of the Bullwinkle Show I now offer a similar version of the conception, birth and growth of Thunderhill Park, [the Hill] our now adult road race track just about to celebrate its 20th year. Wow, time flies when you are having fun!


One of the best parts of the story of the Hill is that it came about as a solution to a problem confronting  the then board of directors of the San Francisco Region of the Sports Car Club of American [Incorporated April 15th, 1953] that included Tom McCarthy, Roger Eandi, Gary Meeker, Lynn Hunting, Jon Norman, Tom Piantanida and Clint DeWitt. What they decided to do as a result of feeling poorly treated by the management of the tracks serving the area, specifically Laguna Seca and Sears Point, was to build their own road course. Why not?

Distracted Driving Challenge At T-Hill

General News

WILLOWS -- I didn't see the raccoon, frog or dancing bear while I tried to find a quarter on the floorboard and drive a California Highway Patrol car through a cone-marked course Tuesday.

In the real world, those animals could have been children.

As one of five reporters at a Media Distracted Driving Challenge, I experienced the hazards CHP officers warn of as I tried to text, talk, find and read while driving Tuesday at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows.

"It takes 4.6 seconds to send the average text," officer Tracy Hoover said. "That means at 55 mph, you're driving across a football field blind."
