The rule clarification was recommended by the FV Committee in an attempt to make it easier for Tech to measure a manifold. Also as can be found in the ...

This August 4-5 race weekend is the New England Region of SCCA's Cheap Date Event. Basically, you pay for Saturday and you get Sunday for free - a whole second race day with two more races for free. The idea of the Cheap Date event for the Region is to trade lower cost of entry for more entries. The...

Re: Disc brakes

Barry,

Sorry - I've been out of town for while. But, this is the information I have received back. As it states in FastTrack it’s approved for 1/1/19. The BOD considers the matter a done deal and approved it as written.
