Hello Cincy SCCA members!
Spring is just around the corner and we are getting ready to take off again!

We had a great turn-out for our February membership meeting last month at Mac’s Pizza Pub on Wooster Pike. We return for our March Membership Meeting to the MILL RACE BANQUET CENTER (1515 West Sharon Road, Cincinnati, OH 45240) on March 19th at 7pm! Look forward to seeing everyone that can attend for some fun and fellowship as we continue to talk about our upcoming competition events for 2019 and updates from the attendees of the Great Lakes Division SCCA Spring Training meeting.

See you on the 19th!

Thank you,

Road Rally Report

There were some very exciting ideas that came out of the National Convention this year, and I am looking forward to incorporating some of them in our program this year. We plan to introduce some limited timed sections – not too much calculation, but just a taste. There will be more prizes available and more incentive to bring another team along. The schedule is below along with the Rally Masters who have jumped on their date to set up a course. Spaces are still available but sign up early so you don’t miss your chance to pick your favorite roads.
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
Apr. 27 EB Lunken
May. 25  
Jun. 15 Jim Knepper
Jul. 27 Lee Grimes
Aug. 24  
Sept. 28 Gordon Benson
Nov. 02

Race Report

Put your car on the famous Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Any tire, any motor, any class, any suspension. There is a place for you.
As a state licensed driver, you can drive your street car, solo car, or a borrowed car in multiple 25-minute sessions on Friday with an instructor. This year we are adding a vintage group.
As a competition license holder in any race sanctioning organization, you can race your car in the new Sprint Bracket Road Racing group. This is the place for you if you don’t want to follow strict SCCA preparation guidelines, or even if you just want extra seat time. You will be grouped with cars of similar lap times so you will always have wheel to wheel competition opportunities. As long as your car meets minimum SCCA safety standards, you’re good to go.
Save the date for our event, August 2, 3 and 4. Whether you tour, race or volunteer to work, we put on a good show. All are welcome to attend our planning meetings. They are the second Tuesday of the month starting at 7 in our new home, Uno’s Pizzeria, 9246 Schulze Drive, West Chester, OH 45069.

Solo: Starting Line /Evolution School registration is now Open

Cincinnati Region Solo Program is hosting 3 Driving Schools this year. Registration for those driving schools are no open.

Starting Line Driving School -Apr. 27 (www.scca.com/pages/starting-line)
The full day school will introduce key concepts that introduce you to autocross and the dynamics of your vehicle in a performance driving setting. While the focus is on autocross, you will develop performance driving skills while working with professional performance driving instructors.
If you are looking for motorsports competition or just a great way to enjoy the capabilities of your car, the Tire Rack SCCA Starting Line is your complete motorsports starter kit.

Evolution School Phase 1 and Challenge School -May. 11-12 (EvoSchool.com)
Phase One: This Autocross training program is great for any skill level, from seasoned veterans to the complete novice. The Phase One features 24 runs with our team of National Caliber instructors, and each student will work with two different instructors throughout the day.

Challenge School: This program is great for anyone who has taken our Phase One and Phase Two, and is looking to take their driving to the next level. Our Challenge program features 24 runs on 3 different course configurations, and all with our team of National Caliber instructors. The Challenge school will review the skills learned during the Phase One and Phase Two, as well as use a technique that will help prove the importance of looking ahead. Challenge students will also be pitted against their instructors in the final session to help push the students to new levels.

Thank you to all of you that made it to our last Cincinnati SCCA Board & Member Meeting last month! We had a great turnout and learned a lot about what our needs are as an organization to have a great monthly meeting.

As you may recall, for 2019 due to renovation maintenance going on this winter at our “usual meeting place” of the Mill Race Center and the rising costs of rental, we are trying out some new locations for our monthly stated meetings to work around dates that we will still have at Mill Race.

I’m very excited to announce that our February Board & Member Meeting on February 19th at 7pm will be at MAC’S PIZZA PUB (UPSTAIRS ROOM)-WOOSTER PIKE LOCATION. The address is 6309 Wooster Pike, Cincinnati, OH 45227. They have a great room UPSTAIRS for us and plenty of parking behind the building and directly across the street. We will have complimentary soda and snacks and there will be a cash bar available as well. Look forward to seeing everyone at our next meeting at MAC’S on 2/19/19 as we talk about the upcoming Division Spring Training meeting and our rapidly approaching 2019 season! 

See you soon!
