The 2017 New Years Lap - Evan Gordon Memorial Lap
*** BIG CHANGES THIS YEAR *** *** LOCATION CHANGE ***
For the new folks, this is a charity driven memorial lap around I-465 starting and ending on the west side. We generally have anywhere from 150-300 on this event depending on weather. This year will be slightly different however, as the lap will start and end at the 86th street - Traders Point on the west side. The lap is open to all makes and models of vehicles... We also are open to car clubs/groups running together.
We will have special designated parking areas for certain clubs if they bring 10+ people. These car clubs also will be placed at the front of the lap for organizational purposes. We will need to know in advance your club name and estimated amount of people, so please get these to me ASAP!
Charity is yet to be announced for this event. Although this event is free, we will be collecting donations, as well as donations on a percentage of sales from the local restaurants (see below for details). All proceeds collected will go toward the charity chosen.
We are continuing to try to negotiate police escorts from local officers, however may have to find sponsors to pay those officers for their work off-duty. (If anybody wants to sponsor or knows a sponsor, please let me know). We will still have the event without a police escort, however are pushing for the assistance. Ultimately your safety is your responsibility, and ask that you all act like adults on this lap and follow all the rules. We will keep you posted on this as we hear back.
