Solo Report

May 2024 Solo Report

This time my report is on time, okay maybe just barely, but nonetheless it is not late…yet.  Doesn’t seem all that long ago that the season still seemed a bit off, plenty of time to get ready seemingly.  Now here we are a month into the season already and dang if it didn’t start with a bang!

Apr 13 Spring Fun Event 1/ Apr 14 Points Event 1

The Sat Spring Fun Event 1 was well received with 93 entries total, 14 in the ST classes, 18 in the three CAM classes, and 24 in the two Novice classes (NS – 10, NM -14)!  Everyone had the opportunity for seven runs in one of the colder weekends of April with the closest competition in AS where Dan Steele in his Cayman T edged out Mark Minge in his Cayman by 0.101 secs!   

Sun Points Event 1 had 133 entries with 17 in Street Open, 19 in the three CAM classes, and 33 in the six Street Touring classes – 69 of the 133, over half of the entries!!!  We started the season running novices in the same heat as their base classes and whereas there was a bit of confusion initially we worked through that fairly well and got positive feedback on the switch.  The Ben Weaver inspired course was challenging and fun!  There were lots of close competitions throughout the day, but the closest competition ended up being in my class, Street Open where Ben Weaver led most of the event, with Chris Rudy jumping into the lead on Run 5, Bryan Schafer, Charles Totten, and me jumping past Ben on our last runs and a 0.059 sec margin of victory for Chris over me.  Ouch, but dang that was fun.  Gonna have to be on top of our games to do well this year, no slack in this class!!! 

Cincy Evolution Performance Driving Schools

The Phase One School was held Sat, Apr 27 and had hit the capacity with 24 entries and even some waitlisted.  We had people from Wisconsin, Michigan, and Virginia and were blessed with fantastic instructors:  Jinx Jordan, Dave Montgomery, Nathan Popp, and Danny Popp.  Everyone couldn’t say enough good things about the school, if you haven’t taken one you should no matter how many years you have been enjoying this sport.  There is one only three hours away at Grissom Aeroplex near Peru, IN! 


On Sunday, Apr 28, we offered a Challenge School for the first time since I have been the Cincy SCCA Solo Chair instead of the typical Phase 2 School based on the many who requested it last year and prior years.  Unfortunately, attendance wasn’t what we were hoping for, only 8 students, but it was a fantastic school and again everyone highly recommended it if you have a chance.   

Now on to future events: 

May 11 Spring Fun Event 2 / May 12 Points Event 2

Race Report

Don’t forget to mark your 2024 calendar for the Double Divisional, Todd Cholmondeley ITSpec*tacular races at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on July 13-14. Exact track times and groupings are not yet set, but some highlights are:

  • Compete on both the club and the pro course configurations 
  • The divisional races on Saturday and Sunday count for the GLD Divisional Championship 
  • They are also qualifying races for the run-offs, this year at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI. 
  • Time permitting, there will be a one-hour bracket race, where drivers with cars of any class compete against each other, based on the “time bracket” they have posted in their regular class groupings
  • Exclusive session of ITB, ITC, and B-Spec cars, for an exciting and very competitive race each day
  • Possibility of early end time on Sunday so you can get home earlier
  • Similar trophies to 2023 and 2022 – Acrylic plaque with wooden stand (must claim at the track), and personalized plaque to be mailed after the event

Volunteer opportunities.

I have been told by countless volunteer workers that this is THE race to come to. We always try to make it as special as possible. We can always use help to support the racers and get you up close and personal with the cars and drivers or get you out on a corner where the action is. We’ll also feed the volunteers lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and dinner on Saturday. In fact, if you have entered and run in the Friday

Track Event, stick around to work on Saturday and/or Sunday. You will earn a $25/day rebate on your entry fee. Other races at Mid-Ohio are May 17-19, August 10-11, and October 12-13. If you want to be involved and try out different specialties, email  and I’ll get you hooked up with a chief.

Registration will open in the spring.
