What’s new on the NEAR website
May 9, 2014

The web site is evolving and growing each week.

Since launch on April 23, 2014 we have had over 1200 visits. Thank you for your renewed interest and use. If you are not a 2014 paid member please take the time to either join or renew your membership at this time. Your membership includes the bi-monthly newsletter sent directly to your mailing address so you see things not in view on the public domain of our website. At $20  a year it also supports the efforts of this organization to maintain the HOF mobile museum and the Hall of Banquet. Please take a moment to locate the membership form and mail it in today or we will gladly accept the form and fee at any NEAR event on our posted schedule.

Regional weather
We have located an icon to get the weather at the track on the home page in the left column and again on the NEAR schedule tab at the top of the schedule. Just click and see the real time weather and the forecast for the track before you go or while in route to our numerous events.   Once you try this feature you will use it again and again.

Auto Net New England
Is a website supporting vintage racing shows throughout New England as well as many collector car events and parts locating. They are sponsoring ‘Gathering of the Faithful’ on October 17th in Rochester, MA.  Check out their site, it is an icon on the left side of the home page, and the site is constantly being updated. We will have more on the Gathering as the show gets closer. This website will confirm what you know about vintage racing and cars in New England but more importantly inform you about what you do not know about race tracks, events and cars that is happening year round in New England.

Show results
Show results is a tab on the home page that lists the presence of a car by owner at a NEAR event. It is posted after each show and shows the attendance so if there are any issues towards the accumulation of points for the awards ceremony, held at the annual meeting, they are resolved early. You must be a member in good standing to get your points. This means you must have a paid 2014 membership. As always memberships can be bought or renewed at any NEAR event at the HOF truck or in the paddock with the event coordinator or by mail ahead of time check out the join NEAR button on the upper left of the home page.
