(Editor’s note: Charlie Renner and his wife, Dawn, recently attended The World Class Driving Event in New Platz, N.Y. He won the trip as part of a national contest.
His trip wouldn’t have been complete without taking Farm and Dairy along for the ride. The following is Renner’s account of the excursion. It sounds like he had the time of his life — we know we did!)
This is about the most fun you can have with someone else’s cars and not get arrested. The leader was an ex-Indy Car racer named Roland, who originally came from Belgium, but is now a U.S. citizen.

I was lucky to get the draw as the first passenger (you do this twice per event). They asked if Dawn and I wanted to be in the lead or chase car. Since Roland was driving lead, no-brainer, I figured I’d get some tips and a feel for how he wanted the cars treated.
