Solo : Permanent Number

Our Points Event #4 is only 5 days away – this Sunday!  If you have not registered for the event, please do so ASAP for 2 Reasons!

Register at MotorsportReg.com

Reason #1:
Most of our events sell out before the registration closes!  We have raised our registration cap, but registration typically fills up very quickly.  Walkup registration can be limited and it is first come first serve.

Reason #2:
We needed to make some changes in our Permanent Number system as part of MSR.  Previously, any number you use once becomes a reserved number for the rest of the season. However, with increasing number of entrants, we are starting to run out of numbers! So we can now only reserve your number until three (3) days before the event.

If you have any trouble registering, questions or concerns, please feel free to Contact Us. We are here to help!

Race Report

It’s almost here! Next month we go to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Bring your racecar, bring your street car, or bring your solo car and get out on the track. Or just bring yourself, and a friend if you want, and get involved with helping the event run smoothly. There are many ways to get involved. The daytime activities are the big draw, but the Saturday night party is worth the drive all by itself. LEC hosts a worker party with food on the grill and all the fixin’s and there will be live entertainment as well as a drawing for worker gifts. Drivers are encouraged to stop by and socialize with the workers they depend on to staff the jobs and make racing possible for them.

Registration is OPEN. Go to cincyscca.motorsportreg.com to see all the events Cincinnati Region currently has set up to offer you, and click on the link for the race to register. Register for another activity while you’re at it. Email or call if you have questions, comments or want to chat about it.

There’s still time to get in on the fine details of the event. The last Race Committee meeting is Tuesday, July 10th, 7 PM, at Rick’s Tavern. 5955 Boymel Drive, Fairfield, OH 45014.

Solo Report

It’s been a busy month in autocross. Our region only had one event, but our region members have been very busy at National level events.

Michael Jefferies ran the Finger Lakes NY Championship Tour on Jun 8-10 and out of 284 entrants, we had 16 members run the Peru National Championship Tour event at Grissom AFB, IN on Jun 15-17. Of those 16, five trophied: Michael Jefferies 2nd in CS class; Tim Sholar also 2nd in HS; John Billingsley 3rd in CM; Dave Montgomery winning FP by 0.084 secs over Alex Jones and finishing 7th on PAX overall; and Ben Weaver dominating JA by 4.140 secs. Honorable mention goes to Evan Gill who finished in 3rd just out of the trophies in HS and I guess me for finishing one out in AS after being as high as 4th before last runs Sunday. A large group of others also ran the Optima Drive Autox event at Grissom the following weekend and the Norwalk Super Summit event earlier in the month amongst others, but I do not have results from those events. Along that line, ignoring just having fun, the best way to get better is to run events from more than just our region and ask for advice from others whether in your class or not. I highly encourage you to run other local events such as WOR SCCA, MVSCC, OVR SCCA, CKR SCCA, KYR SCCA, etc and the Great Lakes Divisional Series if you can’t make any of the National level events.

Now to our event.

We had a big weekend at Traders World Jun 23 and 24. The Jun 23 Fun event with the Shelby Dodge America Club (SDAC) morphed into a Miami Valley Sports Car Club (MVSCC) event with SDAC after they asked to run a joint event with us. Even with threatening weather, we ended up with 80 entrants at the MVSCC event Saturday including 29 SDAC entrants who came from all across the country – one even drove his car here from Oregon! It was fantastic seeing all the “old” Shelbys, I have many fond memories of competing against the GLH Turbos in CS against my NA Miata. Although not officially part of their national convention, everyone I spoke with were happy to have had the chance to combine this with the other planned events (drag race, car show, etc.) Saturday, MVSCC classes were run, interesting to see how the various cars fit into the NASA classing structure which has far fewer classes and bump to the next class up based on modifications, tires, etc. Made for some interesting competition over the 8 runs they were able to provide.

Sunday, we had 134 entrants and were able to provide 5 runs on a fun course based on one Ben Weaver designed last year (Saturdays course was run in the opposite direction basically). Novice class continues to be strong with 35 entries and 72 of our 136 entrants were in index classes. Max Michenko edged out the closest victory Sunday with a 0.010 win over Steve Munday in DS, Dave Montgomery edged out Robert Pendergast for the fastest index time on the overall event PAX by 0.022 secs, and Christian Moist held off Robert Pendergast by 0.126 secs for the overall fastest raw time at the event. Our new Live Results (can be accessed on our homepage, under “Autocross” Menu) were doing great and praised by many.

Our next event, PE 4, is July 22, again at Traders World (Registration is now open on Motorsportreg.com/). There numerous big events this month at which we need a strong showing of Cincy Region members, such as Great Lake Divisional events Jun 30 & Jul 1 at Grissom and Jul 15 at the Coliseum in Fort Wayne. There are also many national level events with a Match Tour Jul 4-6 and Championship Tour Jul 6-8 at Bristol TN Motorspeedway, Packwood, WA Championship Tour on Jul 13-15 and ProSolo on Jul 20-22, and the Oscoda ProSolo on Aug 3-5.

See you in July!

Road Rally Report

The June event, The 222 Shuffle, brought out 8 teams to drive the beautiful roads of Clermont County. The results are listed below.

The teams of Jim Knepper & newcomer David Griggs along with Chris Ross & John Garrett finished with the fewest penalty points and tied for first place. Finishing just one point behind, in a three-way tie were Gordon & Teresa Benson, Steve & Jacob Munday, and Derek & Kate Hart. Tony & Dawn Brown, John & Donna Hart and Aaron & Micah Gastrich followed closely behind. This one was a real squeaker with no team missing more than two questions and the tie-breaker question making the difference.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE JULY 21st EVENT, “Kentucky Ramble”.
We will be starting from the Frisch’s in Highland Heights, Kentucky. Come join us. Lee Grimes always finds the best of the winding Kentucky roads! Drivers and Navigators sign up on-line. Visit cincyscca.motorsportreg.com for links to the registration pages for all the Cincinnati Region events. If you need to be paired up with a running partner, let us know and we’ll do our best. Our rallies always end at a location disclosed before you start your drive and is always a family friendly place with food and adult beverages available. Competition promises to be fierce for the 2018 Series Championship.

For those new to the sport, Road Rallies are run on public roads at legal (sometimes brisk) speeds on a variety of roads. Route instructions can be challenging but if you are careful you will NOT get lost. Any street licensed vehicle capable of accommodating a driver and a navigator who can communicate safely (so probably not a motorcycle) from a smart car to a pickup truck are eligible and kids are welcome. Penalty points are given for incorrect answers to questions that can be answered by making observations along the route. Low score wins. Awards are presented for each event and points are assigned based on finishing position to determine a series champion.

The schedule as it now stands is as follows:

Date Rally Master
April 14 EB Lunken
May 26 Jim Knepper
June 16 Colleen Cabe
July 21 Lee Grimes
August 25 Jim Wiles
October 6 Gordon Benson
November 3 TBD

 

One more date is still available if you’d like to set up a rally. Assistance can be provided. We are always happy to hear any ideas you have for a fun drive. Contact me to volunteer or if you have questions.

Solo: Cancellation of Tire Rack Toledo ProSolo

SCCA made an announcement of Cancellation of July 29-31 ProSolo.

SCCA.com – Cancellation of Tire Rack Toledo ProSolo

ProSolo Enthusiasts,

What we have feared for the last couple of months, but hoped would be avoided, has come to pass; the site we use for National Solo events in Toledo will not be available for the July 29 – 31 ProSolo. Therefore, that event has been cancelled and will not be replaced on the 2018 Series calendar. Refunds will be made over the next two weeks to those entered in the event.

Section 20.10.A of the ProSolo Rules is being modified to address, to the degree we can, the resulting circumstances from this cancellation. The new rule language is below.

We hope you understand that on occasion situations arise that are beyond the control of the SCCA or its Regions and we must make the best of it. The Northwestern Ohio Region and the Toledo Express Airport are to be commended for their efforts in trying to keep this event on the 2018 schedule.

Thanks for your patience on this matter and for your support of the Tire Rack SCCA ProSolo Series.

H.

SCCA Senior Director of Rally/Solo
