We received word that AHRMA roadracer Fred Willink passed away on Friday, December 12. He will certainly be missed, and our thoughts are with his friends and family. From the December, 2014 issue of Vintage Views:
“It was great to have long-time AHRMA roadracer Fred Willink make the trip from California to join us at Barber and Daytona. Despite a long battle with cancer and failing health, Willink was able to race each day, and secure his first-ever Thruxton TransAtlantic Challenge win at Daytona; he has shown us all how to be a true friend and competitor.”
Steve Kirby has stepped-up as the new Southeast Regional Coordinator, and has also launched a new website for the region (which covers Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee) — it can be viewed at www.ahrmase.org. Members from the Southeast would like to thank Michael C. Taylor for his years of service as the coordinator, and for building and maintaining the previous website for the region. Thanks also to Bill Cobb for hosting the site. Kirby can be reached at 803.412.6471, or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The title sponsors for several of AHRMA’s National Championship Series will be returning for the 2015 season. In addition the earlier Race Tech National Post Vintage Motocross Series announcement, CPL Systems will headline the National Historic Cup Roadrace Series, and Northwest Maico & CZ will do likewise for the National Vintage Motocross Series. Penton Racing Products is back on board for the National Cross Country Series, and Speed & Sport has re-upped as the National Vintage Trials Series sponsor for the 20th consecutive year. Please don’t forget to show your support to these fine companies that continue to contribute to our sport.

There’s a new website in town! Members in AHRMA’s Northwest Region now have a new site to keep track of the goings-on in northern California, Idaho, northern Nevada, Oregon and Washington — it can be viewed at www.ahrmanw.org. Northwest members would like to thank Reese Dengler for his 14 years of building and maintaining the old website for the region; Dengler recently stepped-down from the task.
