In Memory of Kirk Salvatore

December 10, 1949 - March 19, 2010

 

It is with a very heavy heart that I pass on the news of the passing of Kirk Salvatore. He passed away on Friday March 19 of a brain disease. His memorial service will be 2:00 pm Sunday March 28th at Glendale Farm - 431 Center Road Chimacum WA. all SCCA family is welcome to attend.

 

A member of SCCA since 1997 Kirk was extremely active in Northwest Region working on the Solo 1 program (now Time Trials) and driving his Black 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC -6.0L #9. He attended events at Bremerton, Monroe, Pacific Raceways and more. Kirk turned over the reins of Solo 1 as it was transformed into Time Trials in 2005. He then decided he would turn his Mercedes back in to strictly a street car and planned to someday race a different car. When time from his farm, Glendale, permitted he showed up to at the track to visit with friends and to lend a hand to fellow racers. You will be missed, and in our hearts forever.

Kirk was good person with a big heart and a passion for the SCCA Solo 1 program.  There was a small group of us, "The Corvette Gang" that were extremely appreciative of the time and effort Kirk put into the program.  All of us continued-on to other racing venues, but will always remember our roots and those that turned our racing dreams into reality.

 

Our sincere condolences;  Bud Harris, David Hurley, Brad Biggerstaff, Steve Raeder, Jerry Fraulini

Wow that sure is a shock.  I just remember seeing and talking to him last year.  I got to know Kirk quite well coming to quite a few of the Solo events in the past 8 years or so, being pretty well the only Canuck there to on most occasions.  Kirk was a gentleman who always tried to do his best for his small group of Solo competitors.  God bless you Kirk and may you rest in peace.
