Solo Report

May 2024 Solo Report

This time my report is on time, okay maybe just barely, but nonetheless it is not late…yet.  Doesn’t seem all that long ago that the season still seemed a bit off, plenty of time to get ready seemingly.  Now here we are a month into the season already and dang if it didn’t start with a bang!

Apr 13 Spring Fun Event 1/ Apr 14 Points Event 1

The Sat Spring Fun Event 1 was well received with 93 entries total, 14 in the ST classes, 18 in the three CAM classes, and 24 in the two Novice classes (NS – 10, NM -14)!  Everyone had the opportunity for seven runs in one of the colder weekends of April with the closest competition in AS where Dan Steele in his Cayman T edged out Mark Minge in his Cayman by 0.101 secs!   

Sun Points Event 1 had 133 entries with 17 in Street Open, 19 in the three CAM classes, and 33 in the six Street Touring classes – 69 of the 133, over half of the entries!!!  We started the season running novices in the same heat as their base classes and whereas there was a bit of confusion initially we worked through that fairly well and got positive feedback on the switch.  The Ben Weaver inspired course was challenging and fun!  There were lots of close competitions throughout the day, but the closest competition ended up being in my class, Street Open where Ben Weaver led most of the event, with Chris Rudy jumping into the lead on Run 5, Bryan Schafer, Charles Totten, and me jumping past Ben on our last runs and a 0.059 sec margin of victory for Chris over me.  Ouch, but dang that was fun.  Gonna have to be on top of our games to do well this year, no slack in this class!!! 

Cincy Evolution Performance Driving Schools

The Phase One School was held Sat, Apr 27 and had hit the capacity with 24 entries and even some waitlisted.  We had people from Wisconsin, Michigan, and Virginia and were blessed with fantastic instructors:  Jinx Jordan, Dave Montgomery, Nathan Popp, and Danny Popp.  Everyone couldn’t say enough good things about the school, if you haven’t taken one you should no matter how many years you have been enjoying this sport.  There is one only three hours away at Grissom Aeroplex near Peru, IN! 


On Sunday, Apr 28, we offered a Challenge School for the first time since I have been the Cincy SCCA Solo Chair instead of the typical Phase 2 School based on the many who requested it last year and prior years.  Unfortunately, attendance wasn’t what we were hoping for, only 8 students, but it was a fantastic school and again everyone highly recommended it if you have a chance.   

Now on to future events:
