GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN The Off-Road Motorsports World has lost two Icons in a very short time and their presence will be tremendously missed. Art Savedra, SCORE Tech Director and Bob Steinberger, SCORE Radio Relay “Weatherman” both contributed to raising the bar on the implementation of Safety programs that set the stage for the current focus on the increased safety measures and procedures that are now required for all SCORE participants. Both “Life Celebrations” took place recently and were a testament to how much these two individuals were admired, respected and loved by their families, teams and the off-road motorsports community in general. Art’s meticulous scrutiny of race related fabrication and safety equipment requirements reflected the SCORE mandate for these necessary increased levels of safety measures while Bob’s frustration with team communication in the early days of SCORE races, developed into the whole “Weatherman” radio relay phenomenon. This enabled communications upgrade for race operations, the teams and their families to know what was finally happening on the race course, thus creating the ability to react to emergency situations and communicate these details. Ultimately, both Art’s and Bob’s efforts and driving passion resulted in saving many lives over the past few decades. We will miss them both and will continue to build on their programs. Via Con Dios Amigos. Jim
