The Tire Rack SCCA Starting Line School is a partnership between the Sports Car Club of America and Tire Rack to give automotive enthusiasts at every level a professional, all-inclusive entry into the sport of performance driving and the chance to have some fun with their cars. The full-day school introduces key concepts applicable to performance driving and offers participants the opportunity to develop motorsports skills while working with professional performance driving instructors. Professional instructors teach:

-Vehicle dynamics
-Traction management
-Vision and control
-Tips and techniques custom tailored to match your needs and ability level

Starting Line participants leave ready for motorsports competition if that’s where their interest takes them, but everyone gains an understanding of the capabilities of their vehicle and is given the opportunity to have a little fun with it. In addition to a full day of instruction, the Tire Rack SCCA Starting Line package includes a complete motorsports starter kit. Participants receive an SCCA membership, entries for optional future events, as well as subscriptions to SportsCar and Grassroots Motorsports magazines. The option to add a Snell- approved motorsports helmet will be coming soon.

Solo: Canceled Event on 04/08

Regrettably we have decided we must cancel our Fun Event this Sunday, Apr 8, due to the uncooperative frigid weather forecast.

A great deal of deliberation went into this decision by our team as I know many of you were looking just as forward to this event and shaking off the winter as we were. The safety concerns regarding the slipperiness of the cold sealed asphalt, risk of damage to equipment or competitors vehicles, concern over potential loss of site if we were to have an incident, the health of the competitors, and possible performance tire damage all contributed to outweigh the potential benefits for all.

Sorry, we will attempt to reschedule this event sometime later in the season. Appreciate your understanding and patience as we made this decision. For those of you who prepaid, there will be no charge to your credit card for this event. Please contact us if you have any questions or concern.

Look forward to seeing everyone at our Apr 22 event!

Solo: Please Read! 04/08 Spring Fun Event

Due to extreme cold temperatures forecast for Sunday (Low19°, high 40°) after the forecast of 2-4″ of snow Fri-Sat, we are considering postponing the Fun Event this Sunday for safety concerns.

If you are considering attending this weekend, or was and changed the mind due to the weather, please Register or cancel the registration so we can get an accurate driver count.

Will advise once we weigh all the alternatives.

If we decide to have the Fun Event this weekend and you are to attend, please dress appropriately with at least 3-4 layers on your torso with good gloves and stocking hat (not ball caps)! If you have already tacked away your winter clothes, Trader’s World sells gloves and hats!

Solo Report

I’ll make this quick (hopefully). We have the Great Lakes Divisional SCCA Spring Training coming up on March 10 which is a great opportunity for Junior Driver Program and Solo Safety Steward training. If you can’t make it to Findlay for Spring Training, there will be webinars offered.

Our 2018 schedule is firming up, we now have a Starting Line event on Apr 21 before our first points event on Apr 22. Let’s hope this one isn’t iced out like our last one in Wilmington a couple years ago.

Excited about the season starting in roughly 5 weeks!!!

See posts about each of these elsewhere in the edition or online.

Solo Report

Along with Christmas shopping, I’ve been busy wrapping up the 2017 Solo season. Trophies are designed and ordered, so please come to the awards banquet to get your trophy or cheer for your friends who do get one. Look for registration details elsewhere on the site.

I’m happy to say we are returning to Traders World starting in April 2018. I’m still in contact with a couple other potential sites, but even if those pan out we will still have events at Traders World. We released our tentative 2018 solo schedule on both our Facebook page and on the website along with other neighboring regions/clubs, national level events, and other major events. Dates and/or locations could change as things are finalized but this should be very close.

Add March 10 to your calendars and come to the Great Lakes Division SCCA Spring Training. There will be Solo Safety Steward training available along with other great topics.

Look forward to seeing everyone at the banquet and next season!!!

Solo Report

We had a fantastic season at Traders World in 2017. Sorry to say I don’t have the 2018 schedule yet, but I’m working on it and will let everyone know as soon as I can. I can say we have an Evolution Driving School already planned and registration open for May 5 (Phase 1) and May 6 (Phase 2).

Year end points and trophies. Year end points were updated for the last Points event and fun event.

Come celebrate the year with friends and competitors at our banquet on Jan 27. If you are listed as getting a trophy you should have received an email with a response requested by Dec 7th. Even if you aren’t getting a trophy come out and have fun and hopefully win a cool door prize.

Lastly, 2018 SCCA ProSolo, Match Tour, and Champ Tour event schedules have been released. Lots of great events close by or within a reasonable distance.
