News: Silicone Wire Systems supports Corvair Olympics

Silicone Wire Systems of San Jose, California, has donated $100 to be presented to the winner of the John Fitch Award at the “Corvair Olympics” conducted by the Northeast Corvair Council (NECC) in the greater Indianapolis, Indiana, area June 16-17-18, 2011.

Silicone Wire Systems is owned and operated by Seth Emerson, longtime Corvair owner, racer, and enthusiast.

The Corvair Olympics is a three-day Corvair performance extravaganza consisting of time trials on a road course, drag racing on a quarter-mile, and autocross on a pylon-defined course.

The John Fitch Award, honoring the best overall performance in all three events, is named for the well-known war hero, race car driver, and safety advocate John Fitch, who at age 93 remains actively involved in automotive pursuits. Fitch’s modified Corvairs, produced with the cooperation of Chevrolet in the 1960s, are prized collectible cars today.

The time trials, preceded by open lapping sessions, will take place on Thursday, June 16, at the Putnam Park Road Course in Mount Meridian, west of Indianapolis. The drag races will take place on Friday, June 17, at Muncie Dragway just outside of Muncie, northeast of the city. The autocross will take place on Saturday, June 18, at the Carbon Motors facility in Connersville, east of Indy.

The John Fitch Award is given to the driver who participates in all three events with the same Corvair, Corvair-bodied, or Corvair-powered vehicle and who earns the best overall score. Individual scores are weighted by a formula to adjust for different classes, enabling stock Corvairs to compete on an equal footing with race-prepared Corvairs.

Silicone Wire Systems specializes in offering the best ignition wire sets for all types of cars. From Corvairs to Cobras, for Concours or Competition, Silicone Wire Systems does it all. Nine colors of low resistance 8mm wire are available, Black, Yellow, Red, Blue, Green, Teal, Purple, Orange and even Hot Pink. Silicone Wire Systems offers special pricing for Corvair sets.

The Northeast Corvair Council, founded in 1974, is conducting the Corvair Olympics with the assistance of members of the Circle City Corvair Club of Indianapolis. Additional information about the event, including hotel information and directions to the venues, can be found at [www.neccmotorsports.com].

What time does the track open? Is it a night event? How late can we stay? I'd love to go.
