The Fring Ring


The finest racecars are brought together with love and care, then tested to perfection. Yes, the old ways are still best at Autodromo Hermanos. But don’t take our word for it. One formula race, and you’ll know.

Buy One!

Abbeville Opera House

Where: Greg’s Gas Plus (Exit 1 off I20 on Martintown Rd., North Augusta)
Leave Time: 11:30 am

Scenic country roads to Abbeville with a stop midway for whatever your needs might be. We have reservations at The Village Grill at 1:00 for lunch. Even if you aren’t going to see Peter Pan, this is a nice drive and the food is very good. Go for the drive and lunch, then wander Abbeville’s antique shops. The play starts at 3 and we have 12 box seats reserved. Afterwards we will be heading back to Augusta with dinner somewhere TBA.

Newer members who missed out on the first announcement but would like to attend, contact me and I’ll see about getting tickets at our group rate of $16 each.
