Next General Meeting & Board Nomination Meeting coming up on Tuesday October 16th!!
Hello Cincinnati Region SCCA members! It’s been a very long and winding road this season with all of the events your Cincinnati Region has hosted in 2018 and a few more still left to run! But more on that later….
I wanted to take a short moment to remind everyone of our upcoming General Meeting 8PM this Tuesday on October 16th at the Mill Race Banquet Center. This is our annual Nomination Meeting to form the ballot for our 2019 Board Elections on Tuesday November 20th. Each November we vote for one year terms for the Region Executive, Assistant R.E., Treasurer and Secretary. Then we also vote in 3 members as Board-Members-At-Large for a 2 year term. To be on the ballot you must be nominated at the October General Meeting and a current Cincinnati Region SCCA member in good standing. If you are interested in more information for any of the positions, please contact our region nominating committee; either EB Lunken or Jim Clark by clicking here.
At our events this year you may have heard about the initiative Cincinnati Region is sponsoring to have an approved SCCA License Plate available in the state of Ohio. We are gathering over 150 signatures to support the petition for the opportunity to purchase a license plate with the official SCCA Logo on the plate. In order to sign the petition you must have an Ohio Drivers License and then state an Ohio license plate number that your are listed on. The petition does not require you to buy the plate once it becomes available so there is no obligation to buy it, just basically endorsing its existence. Once approved the plate needs to be purchased by a minimum 50 times across the state to be renewed each year. The petition will be at the next events coming up!!
Speaking of our next competition events… the next RallyCross should is on Saturday 10/27, the last Solo points event is 10/28 and our last RoadRally for 2019 will be Saturday 11/3. Make sure to check our website and Facebook for event updates!
And finally, please save the tentative date of Februarye 2, 2019 for our Annual Awards Banquet at the Mill Race Center. Confirmation of the date and more details are to come!
Once again our Nominating Meeting is coming up this Tuesday October 16th, look forward to seeing you there!
The Mill Race Banquet Center is located at:
1515 W. Sharon Road, Cincinnati, OH 45240
REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE OCTOBER 6th EVENT, “The Great Indiana Pumpkin Rally”.
This will be a traditional GTA rally with questions to keep you observant and provide scoring opportunities. I know from experience this is a great drive. On-site registration and check in will start at 9:30, but come early for breakfast. We begin the rally at Bob Evans Restaurant – 102 Links Way, Aurora, IN 47001. Safety meeting is at 10:15 and the first car out will be at 10:30. Visit cincyscca.motorsportreg.com for links to the registration sites 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.
The final rally of the season will be November 3. This will be our first attempt to introduce a time factor. No, you don’t have to follow a prescribed speed over a given distance or perform any complex calculations, you will, however, need to drive a route, or parts of the route, multiple times as consistently as possible. More to follow on this.
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.
We are always happy to hear any ideas you have for a fun drive. Contact me to volunteer or if you have questions.

Sunday Results (tentative) are up.
2018 Schedule and Results
As some of you may know, we had a timing computer issue during the third heat and some of the time and penalties are missing/inaccurate. Please review the results posted, and contact us (email@example.com) if you find any errors BEFORE SUNDAY 09/13 by end of the day. Please share with your friends who attended our PE6 this weekend as well.
Also the Season Points will be updated once we finalize the PE6 Results. If you find any inacuracy in Season Points, please contact us as well.
I DIDN’T KNOW THAT!!!! Cincinnati History Rally (Saturday 08/25)
And now for something entirely different. We have not had a road rally like this before. It’s a scavenger hunt of Cincinnati landmarks. You will have to figure out what landmark you need to visit based on information in a clue sheet – and take a picture to prove your presence – and how to get there. You can use any outside help necessary to figure out your route including asking for directions and, perhaps especially, using a “google-able” device. Scoring will be based on the number of destinations you make it to, total mileage, total time, and worthiness of the bribe offerred to the rally master, Jim Wiles. Some parking fees may apply.
Departure will be from Alms Park shortly after the 10:30 safety meeting and distribution of the clue packet, with registration from 9:30 – 10:15. Come back to the park when you have completed your journey and stay for the club picnic, which starts at 3PM. Main course will be provided along with drinks and chips. A side dish to share would be most welcomed and can be left at the park while you travel around town, if desired. Bring outdoor games, if you have any, and socialize with other club members. We did this a couple years ago and, despite the short burst of severe weather that blew through, had a really good time.
Registration is open at cincyscca.motorsportreg.com
Date: Aug. 25 3:00PM ~
Location: Alms Park (710 Tusculum Ave. Cincinnati OH 45226)
Come join us for a summer party with all of your racing friends.
We will supply Burgers and Hotdogs, you bring a covered dish or desert.
Some non-acoholic drinks will be provided, B.Y.O.B.
