The IT/SPEC*tacular, the region’s main Club Race, has over 10 years of history. The concept of the IT/SPEC*tacular was born in 2007 in an effort to address the potential of non-profitable events in the declining economy. The approach was to give grassroots racers a venue to race, while maintaining a potential for a positive profit. So the IT/SPEC*tacular was born in which the Improved Touring and the popular Spec classes were invited to a restricted double regional event that featured a three race format for crowning a champion in each class. This format was well received by the invited classes and the event was a success, allowing the region to continue to host events. As the economy improved and racers started coming back to events, the region expanded the event back to include all SCCA classes, and was re-badged as the IT/SPEC*tacular Plus. From 2017, our IT/Spec*tacular is dedicated to Todd Cholmondeley.
2020 Todd Cholmondeley IT/SPEC*tacular is Cancelled
To our Road Racing members and friends that support our annual Todd Cholmondeley IT Spec*Tacular at Mid-Ohio. As you are probably aware by now our race weekend date this year was bumped for the newly rescheduled date of the IndyCar Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio that was moved up to make room for the rescheduled Indianapolis 500 later in August.
Unfortunately the rescheduling option offered to us would not work with the currently scheduled events for Great Lakes Division SCCA in 2020. So it is with much regret and heavy heart we have to announce the cancelling of the 2020 Todd Cholmondeley IT Spec*Tacular at Mid-Ohio. But we do plan to return in 2021 bigger and better than ever! We thank you for your support and ask that you consider following the 2020 Great Lakes Division schedule (www.gldscca.com/regional) and support the other events that we hope will be racing later this year!
Thank you, Be Safe & Stay Well!
