    I've got a build thread now but it's a street car, my old 85 I owned back in the 80s. Hope to have it finished in the next couple of weeks.

    It's back, that's great, but if there are no longer IT discussions then there won't be much of a site here.

    Good post. I and some fellow racers are becoming dissatisfied with the SCCA for these points and others. We all participate in a racing club, but for the most part if you're not participating in one...

    And some knowledge, which I severely lack.

    If I were going to evaluate say the SE/Eastern division, I need to know what tracks are counted in that area. My guess would be six: VIR, PBIR, Sebring,...

    Is it that many?

    Seriously though, what is the average participation of a majors class race with, and without, SM & SRF factored in?

    I suspect the runoffs participation would benefit from regional racers taking advantage of the runoffs coming into their area. With the runoffs coming to Daytona next year I'd head down there to...

    Good information to know.

    But again, how is the national and regional distinction within the SCCA a benefit to the racer? Or, put another way, what are the advantages of the SCCA's system over...

    That's a good question Butch and worthy of contemplation.

    Why I'm contemplating, can someone explain to me the advantages the racer enjoys with the current National/Regional distinction? The...

    As you well know, I did not build a car with the intention of going National racing. The reason I, and a bunch of others here, are discussing the topic at all is that we wish to help the SCCA thrive...

    Well, if you'd not disallowed a lot of the cars eligible for IT I doubt this thread would exist. ST had a really good shot at essentially taking IT national but didn't. I understand some of the...

    Sorry, not class but category. Discuss a new IT-like category, that fixes the issues with the current IT category, then offer it to the SCCA or maybe try it with NASA.

    If IT gets removed from the GCR, and all the various regions make their own adjustments to IT so that the rules set is not the same around the country, then the class is doomed in the SCCA. If it...

    They're always talk. And then there is the reality of IT, what the ITAC can effectively do, and the station of IT in the SCCA.

    Sure. The chassis is still square, but the tires dented every panel on the driver's side of the car. Beats a solid wall though.

    No way that car is going into ITR. The low-hp cars in ITR are at 190 stock hp, so a 100hp spread would be too much for the class.

    Besides, given IT's questionable status in the SCCA I think I'd...

    That'd be shoving the red-head stepchild out in the cold and locking the door. I think when that happens I'll move on somewhere else as well.

    I'm asking, doesn't the region contribute money back to HQ based on the entries? Fewer regional racers, less money back to Topeka.

    I think regional racing does have an impact on national classes....

    One way to solve it, but that the problem exists at all is indicative of a larger issue. Sweeping IT out the door is a band aid. It would seem logical that the club would be interested in capturing,...
