    Default The Devil in the Dark 2018

    Millville NJ, January 2018. The event supps for The Devil in the Dark 2018 have been posted on the Region website. This version is complete and approved by SCCA. This is an advance version for teams planning to enter the event. Registration for this year's event is open.

    There are very few changes in the 12 Hour regulations for 2018. A small number of items highlighted in the recent
    endurance survey have been incorporated this year in an effort to broaden the competitor base.

    A major change for this year's race is the event date moving from its traditional April slot to the end of October. It was the time of year most preferred in the survey and the one which creates the fewest conflicts with other events. This year's event will be on 27 October 2018.

    The only significant update to the car preparation rules this year is a pair of measures intended to encourage the use of ****** ***** (TW 180+). Competitors who use ****** ***** in this year's race will have the option to (a) run in the next lower Endurance Class or (b) run in the same Endurance Class with no wheel / tire size restrictions. Parity between ****** ***** and DOT RComps was the single most requested change to the race format since it provides the opportunity for a substantial reduction in a team's race budget.

    The only change in car classifications is Spec Racers have been moved to their own class to eliminate an existing class inequity. In conjunction with the separate classing, a new 6 Hour Spec Racer Endurance Challenge will be a major feature of The Devil during the Day 6 Hour race.

    There are no changes to the event operations - driver eligibility, pit stops, fueling, etc.

    Reminders

    There will be an SCCA Test Day on Friday, 26 October for 12 Hour competitors and other closed wheel cars.

    Registration is open

    Racing around the clock again in 2018!

    Millville NJ, May 2018. Registration for The Devil in the Dark 2018 12 Hour Endurance Race is now open on MotorsportReg (direct registration link). This year's event will be run on 27 October and is the only long distance SCCA endurance race in 2018.

    Again this year, there will be a companion race concurrent with the 12 Hour - The Devil during the Day 6 Hour race. There will be separate results and trophies for the 6 Hour which will feature the Spec Racer Endurance Challenge.

    There are two very important dates approaching for this year's event. The first is the end of the 'Earlybird' entry fees at noon on 1 June; entries received prior to this date will receive a $200 (12 Hour) or $100 (6 Hour) discount from the regular entry fee. The second date is 6 June when the Region BoD meets to consider its go-no go decision. After last year's substantial financial loss, the Region established a date to determine whether it has sufficient commitment for a successful event or whether it should repurpose the weekend for an alternate event. Teams considering this year's event are urged to commit by the end of May.

    The only significant update to the car preparation rules this year is a pair of measures intended to encourage the use of street tires (TW 180+). Competitors who use street tires in this year's race will have the option to (a) run in the next lower Endurance Class or (b) run in the same Endurance Class with no wheel / tire size restrictions. Parity between street tires and DOT RComps was the single most requested change to the race format since it provides the opportunity for a substantial reduction in a team's race budget.

    The only change in car classifications is Spec Racers have been moved to their own class to eliminate an existing class inequity. In conjunction with the separate classing, the new Spec Racer Endurance Challenge will be a major feature of the 6 Hour race.

    There are no changes to the event operations - driver eligibility, pit stops, fueling, etc. - from prior years.

    The supps for the event are on the Region website. Contact Chief Steward Terry Hanushek for any questions or clarifications.


    Reminders

    There will be an SCCA Test Day on Friday, 26 October for 12 / 6 Hour competitors and other closed wheel cars.

    Early commitments are necessary to keep this event alive.


    Racing around the clock again in 2018!




    27 October 2018

    'Earlybird' expires in one week

    Millville NJ, May 2018. Earlybird Registration for The Devil in the Dark 2018 12 Hour Endurance Race will be available for one more week. Entries received by noon on 1 June will receive a $200 (12 Hour) or $100 (6 Hour) discount from the regular entry fee. The event registration is available on MotorsportReg (direct registration link).

    The beginning of June has extra importance for this year's event. On 6 June, the Region BoD meets to consider its go-no go decision. After last year's substantial financial loss, the Region established a date to determine whether it has sufficient commitment for a successful event or whether it should repurpose the weekend for an alternate event. IMPORTANT: Teams considering this year's event are urged to register by the end of May to make their commitment. Without sufficient commitments, the Region BoD may cancel our traditional endurance race ... and once it's gone, IT'S GONE.

    Again this year, there will be a companion race concurrent with the 12 Hour - The Devil during the Day 6 Hour race. There will be separate results and trophies for the 6 Hour which will feature the Spec Racer Endurance Challenge.

    The 12 Hour / 6 Hour endurance races are open to production based cars running on DOT approved tires. All recognized road racing licenses are accepted. The supplemental regulations for the 2018 event are on the Region website. Contact Chief Steward Terry Hanushek for any questions or clarifications.

    Reminders

    There will be an SCCA Test Day on Friday, 26 October for 12 / 6 Hour competitors and other closed wheel cars.

    Early commitments are necessary to keep this event alive.
