Area 4 Director Update for December 2022

The “off season” arrives and I wholeheartedly chortle…..it’s really the beginning of the next season for those of us working behind the scenes…..there really is no “off season” folks so I continue to work to help our divisional programs prepare for the upcoming year.

Video Conference Meetings:

  • Club Racing Board (CRB) (11/1): The CRB met and continued to move forward on a variety of topics.  Some are very much long term, strategic in their nature.  I’m glad to see that they’ve moved on from extended discussion about minute rules questions and are leaving that to the Ad Hoc committees.  The results of CRB rules changes can be seen here.
  • Board of Directors (BoD) (11/7): We met off schedule with the Rally Cross Board (RXB) Chair (current and incoming) to discuss the future of the program.  Once they gave us the “State of the Program”, they left and were able to have a conversation about the program.  Some decisions wer made and we passed those along to the President (Mike Cobb).
  • Electrified Vehicle Advisory Committee (EVAC) (11/9): After a couple of months of stagnation, things are starting to move quickly.  Our SCREV is getting some final revisions and will be presented to the BoD on 12/3. Our rules packages for Club Racing (P2EV, ESpec) are getting some last-minute polishing and should be ready for publication to the membership very soon. 
  • Budget & Finance Committee (11/15): We received a preliminary budget from the President.  After he outlined the details for us, we had some time to discuss the overall package.  We met in Executive Session (only BoD members) and had a chat about how to move forward in these trying economic times.
  • Budget & Finance Committee (11/25): We met in a short session (45 minutes) to iron out some financial topics on the 2023 budget.  As we are meeting on 12/3, we wanted Mike to juggle some of the budget items so the entire BoD could discuss the complete 2023 package.
  • EVAC (11/28): I decided that we needed an additional “off schedule” meeting to iron out some revisions to the rules packages before I head off to the BoD meeting.

SCCA Events:

  • None since it our off season.

==========

A quick reminder that the GLDiv Spring Meeting will occur on 3/3 and 3/4 at the same site as last year (Manchester University).  Friday (3/3) will be a social event that evening and 3/4 will be the meeting.  The meetings will be across all programs, so I encourage all members to attend.  With more programs under the SCCA banner these days, we need to focus on teamwork to help each region put on the best events they can. 

I will be introducing our new Club Racing Executive Steward at this event.  Her name is Lauri Burkons and she will be taking over the reins from Duane Harrington.  She has some large shows to fill and a lot of work to do so the expectations are high.  But I know she’s up to the task as we move forward.  She and I have already been working together to ensure that she hits the ground running in 2023. 

As usual, Val McCammon is coordinating the event.  She will send a “call for sessions” email soon.  She also asked that I remind folks to contact her (pyramid@bluebirdview.com, 260.437.6707) with any topic or session ideas they would like to see.

==========

Be sure and visit the GLDiv website for information about all of the SCCA programs within the division.  We have schedules, official’s contact info, standings, etc. for all the SCCA programs.

Please take a few minutes and make sure your contact information is accurate in the SCCA database.  It’s important to have the correct information there so the club knows how to contact you.  Log in to your my.scca.com page and check. 

As I mentioned previously, there is a new path to getting your annual waiver.  You can now get it through the Member Account Portal (MAP).  Follow this link to get the instructions.  There is also a story about the program here.  I’ve done it and it only takes a couple of minutes. Be prepared to upload a headshot picture of yourself.

Just a quick reminder, if any region out there wants to have an “Ask the Director” session during your monthly meetings, please do not hesitate to contact me so we can schedule a visit.  I retired last summer so have plenty of free time and would thoroughly enjoy the chance to visit with your members.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you may have about any facet of the GLDiv. I want you to make the most of your membership and I will help out in any way possible to make that happen.

Area 4 Director Update for September 2022

September will be a busy month for me as I head to Lincoln, NE for the Solo Nationals.  I’ll be at that event from 9/5 to 9/10.  I’ve never been to the Solo Nationals and am really looking forward to it.  Later in the month, I’m headed to Virginia for the Runoffs.  The Runoffs will be held at Virginia International Raceway (VIR) this year (and next) and I’ll be there from 9/23 to 10/3.  I’ve been to VIR several times.  It’s a fabulous facility that will really test the mettle of the competitors.  As I have a brother who lives near there (Durham, NC), I get to pull double duty and visit with him.  Another bonus…..staying at his place will save me (and the Club) a lot of money.

Since I’ll be on the road most of the month, I may not be able to write an update for October.  Hopefully, it’ll be a much easier month.  I am scheduled to get my left hip replaced on 10/13 (not a Friday) so I’ll be able to walk, golf, bike, flag, etc. with MUCH less pain.  Wish me luck…..

Video Conference Meetings:

  • Club Racing Board (CRB) (8/2): As we just had a face to face meeting in KC on 7/28, this Zoom call was more procedural in nature.  We reviewed the letter log and continued the conversation on the G2C initiative (Green to Checker).  I updated the CRB on the work the EVAC has been doing.  The results of CRB rules changes can be seen here.
  • Electrified Vehicle Advisory Committee (EVAC) (8/10): The revised SCREV is being reviewed by the Experiential programs (Time Trials, Track Night in America, Solo, Rally Cross).  While this review is happening, we are working on a variety of things in the background.  The Broch Evans Motorsports EV race car (previously a Formula Mazda) will be entered in AMod at the Solo Nationals.  The car will also be at the Runoffs but only as a static display.  It will be exciting to get this car in front of SCCA folks so they can see it for themselves.  We are also working on training materials for members so they know how to interact with an EV that has entered an SCCA event.  More on that to come later.
  • EVAC (8/23): This was a secondary meeting among some of the EVAC to discuss data acquisition systems for the EVs in Club Racing.  We met with the folks from Aim as we are considering mandating such systems in all of the EVs in Club Racing.  This would make it easier to monitor voltage, power, current, etc. in these cars.  Its early in the process and we wanted to make sure we had a handle on it.

SCCA Events:

  • CRB (7/28): As one of the liaisons to the CRB, I attended their meeting in KC.  Many topics were discussed with an emphasis on long term, strategic thinking about the Club Racing program as a whole.  Data acquisition to monitor performance was highlighted as this will become even more important as we move forward.  Green to Checker (G2C) was discussed at length.  How do we as a group (drivers, steward, workers, etc.) pull together to make sure we have more green flag laps?  A variety of options were mentioned as a part of the solution.  Some routine house keeping was done as well.  They updated language on officials, discussed burden of proof in compliance issues, talked about the future of T1 and how do we fold FIA GT4 cars into Club Racing.  I updated them on how the EVAC was coming along on our rules packages.  This progressed into a broader discussion about EVs in Club Racing.
  • BoD (7/30): Like all face to face, BoD meetings, we were updated by all the managers so we could get an assessment of each program.  All the programs had bright spots and challenges.  This is nothing new.  The good news is that the bright spots outweighed the challenges and I am optimistic about the Club’s future.  The national staff is working hard to make events better, help make the regions put on better events and make a member’s experience better.  We also got a review of the financial standing of the club (pretty good considering the high cost of travel these days).  We were told by the marketing folks that we are “refreshing” our logos and graphic standards.  As this hasn’t been done in quite a while, it’s probably overdue.  We were also told that we are trending upward in terms of full time members…..that’s always good news.
  • WMR Major (8/20, 8/21): I signed up for this event so I could help out my home region (WMR) while enjoying some fun at Grattan Raceway.  Once again, rain followed me to a race course.  Saturday’s schedule was marred by a session being red flagged just as the heavens unleashed a torrent on the track.  With lightning in the area, the Chief Steward had no choice but to stop the clock and allow the workers to seek shelter as the storm passed through.  20 minutes later, the skies were clear and we could go racing again.  The day continued with the usual awesome, all attendee dinner.  Maybe I’m jaundiced but I will stack up the dinner menu at WMR events against ANY other track food option.  Sunday’s races were held under nicer weather conditions.  As it was the last Major east of the Mississippi, this was the last chance for drivers to qualify for the Runoffs via the Majors path.

Area 4 Director Update for August 2022

This month I competed in a GLDiv Solo in Fort Wayne, IN and worked F&C at the SBR/DET Major at GingerMan Raceway.  I will also be driving to Kansas City for the BoD meeting on 7/29, 7/30.  While there, I will also be sitting in on the CRB meeting on 7/28. 

I also contracted COVID on 7/2 while boating on Lake Michigan and watching fireworks display in Muskegon.  My symptoms weren’t too terrible but it wasn’t a picnic either.  The hardest part was isolating at home and not going out.  It is frightening how quickly one can get bored while trapped in your own home.  Please note that COVID is not over.  Please take the appropriate measures and remain vigilant.  As a reminder, if you need some home test kits from the CDC, click here.

Video Conference Meetings:

  • Club Racing Board (CRB) (7/5): We discussed roll cage rules after the severe impact that a Spec Miata incurred at Road America.  On one hand the cage did its job but on the other, the driver was seriously injured.  The T1 Town Hall Zoom meeting was discussed.  We reviewed the Runoffs Tech Inspection lists.  More work was done on the face-to-face meeting to be held in July (7/28).  I updated the CRB on the work the EVAC has been doing.  The results of CRB rules changes can be seen here.
  • Electrified Vehicle Advisory Committee (EVAC) (7/13): With the revised SCREV sent on its way to the various program boards and their BoB liaisons, we concentrated on preparing the Club Racing rules packages.  We discussed some feedback we had gotten from the Production, Touring and BSpec committees. 
  • Solo Events Board (SEB) (7/13): This meeting was to discuss the revised SCREV document with the SEB.  They asked a lot of pertinent questions and I hope I answered them to their satisfaction.

SCCA Events:

  • Fort Wayne Region Solo (7/23): Since I will be travelling to the Solo Nationals on Labor Day (9/6), I will not be able to participate in the WMR Solo at Grattan Raceway.  As a result, I needed to attend another Solo to work on my skills.  I checked the schedule and decided to go to FWR’s event on 7/23.  I drove down the afternoon before so I wouldn’t have to get up at an ungodly hour on the day of the event.  This would be first time I’ve competed in a divisional Solo and I was looking forward to it.  When I got to the site, I realized that I wasn’t prepared to keep my gear from getting wet in the impending rain.  Many thanks to Kevin Keys for helping out an unprepared newbie by allowing me to store my gear in his trailer.  The day started out with a HUGE thunderstorm rolling through the area.  VERY heavy rain and lightning dancing all around us.  After a 90 minute delay for the obvious safety reasons, we got started around 11a.  I was to run in the first heat and work the second.  There were three cars in my class (HS) and I ended up finishing in 2nd  FWR puts on a very nice event and I hope all of you can make it to one of their events soon.  Results for this event can be found here.
  • SBR/DET Major (7/24): I signed up for this event so I could help out our friends at SBR and DET while enjoying some fun at GingerMan Raceway.  As it turned out, there was more rain in order (it seemed to follow me during he weekend) but fun was had regardless of the weather.  As usual the host regions ran a great event.  During the “quiet time” period lunch was served which consisted of a fantastic “build your own” hot dog assembly line with chili, cheese, onions, relish…..all the fixings.  As an added perk for me, I got to see my old race car on track in the hands of its new owner.  Quite a sight!
  • CRB (7/28): I’ll report on this meeting in next month’s report.
  • BoD (7/30): I’ll report on this meeting in next month’s report.

Area 4 Director Update for July 2022

I thought June was going to allow me to take a breath…..but I was mistaken.  Yes, I had fewer events to attend in person but there were several more Zoom meetings, EVAC emails to write, etc., so I was still pretty busy this past month.

Next month I will be driving to Kansas City for the BoD meeting on 7/29, 7/30.  While there, I will also be sitting in on the CRB meeting on 7/28.

Video Conference Meetings:

  • Club Racing Board (CRB) (6/7): Much discussion was had about a new initiative called “Green to Checker” or G2C.  A myriad of decisions and policies over the years have led to poor performance on track during Club Racing events.  There are just too many sessions that are stopped by a black flag all (BFA) or under full course yellow (FCY) due to an incident on track.  G2C will try to change the course away from the trend of too many BFAs and FCYs which diminishes the race experience for all involved.  This policy is in the planning phase and I will report the results when the protocols are adopted.  While this was discussed by the CRB, rest assured this has also been discussed at the BoD level as well.  Changes are coming once we figure out the most effective way to alter the course of the program.  More work was done on the face-to-face meeting to be held in July (7/28).  The results of CRB rules changes can be seen here.
  • Electrified Vehicle Advisory Committee (EVAC) (6/8): We had guests for part of the meeting (Chris Robbins and Abby Scher) as we discussed how to train and educate the SCCA membership on how to interact with EVs when they participate at events.  We tied up some loose ends on the 2nd iteration of the SCREV.  We are also nearly finished with a package for Production cars and are continuing work on a package for formula cars. 
  • BSpec Advisory Committee (6/14): The BSAC group had some solid suggestions for how to modify our ESpec rules package. 
  • Touring Advisory Committee (6/20): The TAC folks had some sage advice for me on the ESpec rules as well. 
  • SCCA BoD Team Development (6/22): Those of us new to the BoD were asked to take a Myers Briggs Type Indicator Test.  That was done online a couple of weeks ago.  The results were revealed during a two hour Zoom call.  I had never done this type of personality analysis before.  All of this was done to allow the BoD work better together and be a more effective governing body.
  • Board of Directors (BoD) (6/27): We had a light agenda since we are meeting face to face next month.  We discussed the compensation for the President (Mike Cobb).  I gave an EVAC update.  We did more planning for our meeting in Kansas City next month.  We also received an update on the Haynes lawsuit.
  • Production Advisory Committee (6/28): Once again, a sub committee of the CRB provided some valuable insight on how we should modify the ESpec rules package.

 

SCCA Events:

  • FSAE @ MIS (6/15-6/17): Man oh man!  What a great time I had at this event.  To see so many college kids working together was truly uplifting.  There were teams representing schools from all over the country as well as several more from Canada.  As Chair of the EVAC, my goal was to see how the EVs were designed and built.  To that end, I hung out in the EV inspection area.  This allowed me to watch the inspectors go through the EV cars with a fine tooth comb.  Watching them helped me understand how the EVs were wired.  I was especially interested in the safety features of the EVs.  We are adopting some of these key safety features in our prototype and formula car rules packages.
  • WMR SCCA Double Regional @ Grattan Raceway (6/18, 6/19): This event was fun to attend as it brought me back to my roots.  I started out as an F&C guy way back when and that’s what I did this weekend.  I had the pleasure of working with a new member too.  It was another chance for me to “pay it forward” so the next generation of SCCA member gets the advice and counsel that I did when I joined.

Area 4 Director Update for May 2022

May starts my GLDiv travel season in earnest.  After going to Pittsburgh International Race Complex (PIRC) for an HST towards the end of April, I plan on going to the inaugural Enduro event at Nelson Ledges (NL that will be held 5/21, 5/22.  NL has dumped a lot of capital into the facility and I look forward seeing the results. I can’t wait to see what the Enduro race has to offer.  It should be quite exciting.

Video Conference Meetings:

  • Club Racing Board (CRB) (4/5): With more 600cc motors in F500, the name of the class has been changed to F600.  That will take effect on 1/1/13.  A discussion about who is responsible for proving illegality was held.  Changes to that wording may be forthcoming.  More work was done on the face-to-face meeting to be held in July.  The results of CRB rules changes can be seen here.
  • Electrified Vehicle Advisory Committee (EVAC) (4/13): The committee received some feedback on its prototype rules package and the revision process has begun.  We are also nearly finished with a package for Production cars as well as a package for formula cars.  We continue to the revision process of the SCREV as well.
  • Formula/Sports Race Advisory Committee (FSRAC) 4/20): A few members of the EVAC met with the FSRAC during their monthly meeting.  We each had questions for the other about the prototype rules package we sent them.  Consensus was gained through discussion and our package was moved forward.
  • Board of Directors (BoD) (4/25): I updated the Board on EVAC (see above).  We continued to prepare for our face-to-face meeting in Kansas City in July.  We’re working on a revised document control system as well.  We are in the middle of an outside audit and all appears to be going well there.

SCCA Events:

  • NCR @ VIR (HST) (4/8-4/10): Windy and cold…..brrrrr.  While it was snowing here, it wasn’t much better down at VIR.  In addition to the nasty weather, the weekend was marred by several incidents which caused full course yellows, black flag alls, and even some red flags.  Once again, going to other race venues makes me appreciate how good we have it here in GLDiv.

Area 4 Director Update for April 2022

As it warms up across the country, Club Racing gets to start it season. My rubber is about to hit the road, literally, as I head to North Carolina and attend the Hoosier Super Tour (HST) race at Virginia International Raceway (VIR). I’ll fold in a visit to my brother’s place in Durham too. After that I will also visit Pittsburgh International Race Complex (PIRC) for an HST race there towards the end of the month (4/29-5/1).

As I mentioned previously, there is a new path to getting your annual waiver. You can now get it through the Member Account Portal (MAP). Follow this link to get the instructions.

Pro Solo/National Tour, Time Trials National Tour, Hoosier Super Tour, Enduro.

Video Conference Meetings:

  • Board of Directors (BoD) (2/28): Ken Blackburn (Chairman of the Stewards) gave a report on the status of the Club Racing program. In general, the program is doing well. But to make sure its long term viability is ensured, more strategic planning needs to be done. Mark Scroggs (Solo Events Board Chair) also joined us to give a status report. Solo is also doing well as it adapts to new safety guidelines, classes and cars. We got an update on the lawsuit filed by Rick Haynes against the Club. It has been moved to Federal Court.
  • Club Racing Board (CRB) (3/1): Some housekeeping was done to make sure the GCR is accurate after an off season of rules changes. Some subtle changes were made on restarts at the Runoffs. The results can be seen here.
  • Electrified Vehicle Advisory Committee (EVAC) (3/9): The committee released its first Club Racing rules package to the CRB. This package pertains to Prototype race cars. We are also nearly finished with a package for Production cars.
  • BoD (3/28): I updated the Board on EVAC (see above). We reviewed a plan to alter the Solo management team and process. Details will be forthcoming. We also received an update on the Rick Haynes v SCCA lawsuit.Again, details to follow.

SCCA Events:

  • GLDiv Spring Training meeting: I attended this event in Fort Wayne on 3/4, 3/5. Val McCammon organized the event and, once again, she did a fantastic job. It was hosted at Manchester University on the north side of Fort Wayne. It’s a nice, new facility that is perfect for a meeting like ours. It’s always nice to see folks working together to further the Club. As for me, in addition to hosting a session of “Ask the Director” and a session on the EVAC, I sat in on several sessions (Road Racing forum, GLDiv BoD meeting, DA & Exec Steward meeting). I also had a side session with the Cincy Region folks on their event at MidOhio.
