    K,

    Your proposal is more than just to let everyone run every weekend, which is what I understood most of the previous posts were wanting. What I see you're saying is "Let everyone run every...

    Said another way:

    Back when I first attended the Runoffs at Road Atlanta in 1971, there were 22 classes that ran in 21 races (7 races Friday thru Sunday, A & B Prod ran together). There were 8...

    Why did I start this thread? Because a bunch (or at least some) of you guys say you want change!

    In various discussions on the Concorde Agreement (or whatever it's called today), current members...

    And given your lack of familiarity with the program, I should also probably ask the guys that are ready to drop the distinction between the Majors and Regionals:

    "Have you ever been to a Majors...

    Yes, the "Majors website" can be reached by clicking the "Majors" tab on SCCA.com.

    Specific to your edit, Ron, there were 28 classes in 2013 (CSR, DSR, and S2 were combined into P1 & P2 for 2014). So if you figure SM & SRF account for 30% of the entries the number per "other" class...

    I'll admit I lived on the Majors website for two years, but it has pretty much everything you want to know about the program. Specific to this question:

    Two things to note: The last two events listed are Festivals, so there were 25 Majors weekends in 2014. Also there were four conferences, but all the "Eastern" numbers are obviously reported under...

    As Terry said, in 2013 & 2014 the weekend schedule was a joint decision between the host region and the Director of Club Racing (me). Both parties had "veto power" over what was offered, but the BoD...

    Two years late the BoD recognized the folly of not allowing regional-only run groups at Majors events, but for 2015 they are now only allowed at "historically low subscription events". I'm not sure....

    Posted my original question around noon on Friday, then headed out for happy hour before the first replies came in. Greg has offered his thoughts, but here are mine:

    The motion on the Concorde Agreement was simply to instruct the CRB do a six-month study and come back with a proposal to reduce the number of Majors/Runoffs classes, nothing more. Once they've...
  13. Getting Rid of Regional/Majors Distinction?

    I know some of you guys are saying getting rid of the distinction between Majors and Regionals will "save" SCCA Club Racing, but exactly how? i.e. - what benefit is there to SCCA (specifically you)...

    I disagree - they draw because they have a larger racer (retired folks with money) population but more importantly, because they run at Daytona and Sebring. And I don't believe I'd EVER use "low...

    If we get the engine back in time Jay & I are talking about taking the GTA car to the hill climb this year. Eric Bartel & I shared the ride in 2012 and it's a neat event - community is fully behind...

    There are a few spots with 30 amp service but the vast majority are less (15 amp?).

    Camping logistics are the same regardless of the event weekend.

    Power is available in many/most places around the paddock, just sometimes you might need a longer extension cord (or Siamese off...

    Assuming you meant "charge" rather than "change", unlike some other tracks there is no additional cost if you want to stay at Road Atlanta all weekend. If you get there late you might need to be...

    Dave,

    Obviously I cannot guarantee there will be no FCY, but I ALSO cannot guarantee it won't pour down rain (or even snow!) that weekend either. What I CAN guarantee is that you'll get 35...

    45 minutes or 20 laps, whichever is longer. Assuming no FCY and the leader averaging a 1:40 lap, 45 minutes works out to 27 laps.

    This allowed us to sanction the Pro-IT races as Enduros instead...

    Jim,

    I know this is going to scare a lot of people out there and may well get me ex-communicated by the SCCA traditionalists, but I hadn't thought of it that way. i.e. - your idea has merit and...

    My understanding of the situation:

    The sanction fee (a base fee then $15 per entry over 150 entries) is per race entry, so we have to pay twice for double-dippers. We still have to pay the same...

    Red - "Becoming"?

    I'm not sure how new you are to the club, but it's not for nothing that the "Secret Car Club of America" moniker came into being. I used to think it was due to a lack of...
