I have received phone calls and emails in recent days concerning the reception to celebrate the life of the late racing driver Fritz Hochreuter, so here’s a reminder:
It will be held, starting at noon tomorrow (Dec. 1), at the Association of Danube Swabians, 1686 Ellesmere Rd. (just east of McCowan), in Scarborough. If you see a restaurant there called the Blue Danube Restaurant and Banquet Hall, that’s it.
If you should happen to make a wrong turn somewhere along the way, the phone number there is 416-290-6186.
Everybody who knew Fritz, or raced against him, or just watched him in action, is welcome to attend.
Meantime, the Deutscher Automobil Club has created a special tribute page for Fritz and if you wish to leave a message, you can do so by clicking here.
And Alex Bartels has written a warm, and hilarious, tribute to Fritz that you can read by clicking here.
And F. David Stone sent me a link to photos of some of the cars Fritz raced over the years. You can take a look at them by clicking here.
See you tomorrow.
