Well, in typical Robert fashion, here is a thread that will crash your internet. :D Sorry for the delay. It took a while to get all these edited and uploaded not to mention typing this all! I wanted to do a full coverage for those that did not make it to VOI.

This is my coverage of VOI 12!

VOI really started in Columbus, Ohio for me with the Grand Caravan and the loading up of banners, centerpieces, signs, etc for the dinners. As there were two empty trailers, we made use of them. :D

Charlotte NC. What a pretty city. And the host hotel for the event would be the Embassy Suites. The entire hotel was taken over by VOI right down to the original body design we all looked at in SLC at VOI 11 in the lobby, banners from the walls, and even a projection of the logo on the floor!

Part of the dinner is a few thank you awards to the region presidents, zone directors, board members, and people who have helped the VCA in various ways to keep the club going. A few samples:

Friday morning started with group A heading to the track and group B heading for the tour and cruise! I was part of group B so you will have to wait to see track pics till later! :D (Hey you! Stop skipping ahead and scrolling down! Have some patience! :nunu: )
Now where was I…..Oh yes. The cruise!

So it was back to the hotel, quick clean up and back to the parking lot for the offsite dinner buses! Where were we going? The Nascar hall of fame. Closed down 100% for VCA. Too cool!

Saturday morning! Group B’s turn at the track and photoshoot….. so up at 4:30 (What!? 4:30!? Yes, you read that right for a limited amount of crazy people who want front row of the photo shoot! :crazy2:) and out to the track. But it would seem the weather god was not as kind to us as group A. We woke up to rain. And a lot of it! :(



We also found something sleeping at the track garages of Charlotte Motor Speedway!

With the shoot done, it was off to the Gen 5 and SRT drive! :nana:

Random forum member: Now just hold on a cotton pickin minute!! Where is the *&$^ gen 5 you spoke about, you dingbat!?

Me: Pipe down! I’m trying to tell a story here! I tell ya....*****....

Random forum member #2: Yeah, we want the Gen 5! Get to the point!

Me: Well keep your boxers on! We had to stop at the SRT Drive first! So we had to wait so you can wait! Good grief….morons… :grumble:




:rolaugh:




So we got to drive the SRT vehicles although with the traction control only…..(He he he….sorry SRT Rachael…. You needed to mention that BEFORE I got in the car….habbit. :devgrin

But enough tormenting, to the Gen 5’s! :yay:



In charge of the SRT Viper drive was none other than Mr Graham Henckel of SRT. Graham did a fantastic job of answering questions and keeping fights from breaking out when EVERYONE wanted to drive the yellow one! :rolaugh:

Many of you keep observers would notice something. My car is wet! Yes, for the first time my car was rained on, and it was at VOI 12! (Still devastated btw in the event anyone cares. :D) Ahem. But back to the story….

Next up was lunch, or if you wanted, a ride in a Nascar stock car as well as a ride in a Mopar drift car driven by Dominik or Kuno. You can be dang sure I did not go for the food! :D:rolaugh:

Next up was suppose to be drag racing, but with the rain dumping down, we headed back to the hotel and attended the SRT tech seminar. I do not have pics of this as SRT would hunt me down and make a Robert-skibob out of me. :D



The soggy track with Herb Helbig directing traffic and giving racing pointers (when it's sunny)!

As with tradition, Ralph had the Ode To Viper:

Sunday was a semi free day where you could go back to the track, cruise, go to see the GTS-Rs, or even sleep. For those in group B that could not get out on the track in the rain, we went to the track first!

Back to the hotel. Wash car and photo shoot with cool backdrop! How many yellow Vipers do you see! :omg:

Now off to Reilly Motorsports, home of the GTS-R!

This what happens when your car is better than everyone else’s due to quality engineering…..they make you **** out of straws. :( My thoughts to you other manufacturers that require Viper to be slowed down so it is fair for you: Grow up and learn how to design epically cool sh*t like Viper! It rules and those restrictors is prime example. Vette you are a pansy too. You claim America's sports car and you need to cheat (by way of rules) to ensure you stay on top....sad.


You must be registered for see images attach





And yes…..we all got to sit in the GTS-R! Thank you so much guys! :hail:

And then it was back to the hotel for the final event of VOI 12. The Sunday Auction and dinner! All the items in the room were auctioned off!

SRT's Steve Sharples gives some hisssstory on the artwork.

And then out of no where Herb ran up and knocked Tom over and grabbed the mic while holding his bottle under his arm.…… :****: No, he was not drunk, and he did not run up and grab the mic. He was actually talking about SRT Jack Daniels! :D (Sorry Herb....had to! :D)



You must be registered for see images attach




And sadly that was the end of the event! Monday morning had the remainder of the people driving home. And if they were like me, the depression set in before the Charlotte city limits that it would be another 24 months before I would be at the giant family reunion that was call the Viper Owners Invitational…..


Thanks to all those that made VOI 12 possible (Yes including you Mary!)! I can’t believe the amount of time you all put into this! If you were not there, you REALLY missed out and need to make sure you are at VOI 13....where ever it may be!! :yay:

WoW!! nice pics  Where is the one of the back of your trailer before we left the hotel parking lot in Dublin? That was too funny. I drove the yellow Gen5, got right in, seems like everyone else wanted to drive the other ones for some reason?? Very nice! It did seem kind of slow though 
