[h=2]Indy smashes SCCA Runoffs registration record[/h] Thursday, 20 July 2017

Competitor registration opened July 19 for the Sports Car Club of America 2017 National Championship Runoffs being held this year for the very first time at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In just 24 hours, 763 driver entries were registered – crushing the 413 entries made in 24 hours for last year's 2016 Runoffs at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
Mike Cobb, SCCA President/CEO, noted that SCCA Club racers have been working all year to meet Runoffs qualification requirements through participation in the Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA Super Tour and SCCA U.S. Majors Tour, as well as SCCA divisional and regional events.
"We knew the 2017 Runoffs at Indianapolis Motor Speedway was going to be a huge event," Cobb said. "But to have more than 760 entries on the first day of registration exceeded even our expectations.
"There has been tremendous buzz about this year's Runoffs since the SCCA announced back in 2015 that the event was going to make its first-ever visit to Indianapolis Motor Speedway," Cobb continued. "The SCCA firmly believes the Runoffs offers up the absolute best three days of amateur racing in the United States, if not the world. Wednesday's opening of registration was quite a milestone in what promises to be a historic event in Indianapolis."
The winner-take-all SCCA National Championship Runoffs will consist of 19-lap or 40-min. races September 29-October 1 on a 15-turn, 2.592-mile road course at the legendary Speedway. National Champions will be crowned in all 28 Runoffs-eligible SCCA car classes. Each class will have a 20-minute qualifying session each day – Monday through Thursday – to set starting grids.
The 2017 Runoffs course layout consists of ten right-hand and five left-hand turns, as well as a main straight 3,700 feet in length. The configuration includes portions of the track previously utilized by Formula One for the U.S. Grand Prix and currently used by the Verizon IndyCar Series for the Grand Prix of Indianapolis.
Spectator passes for the 54th SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Indianapolis Motor Speedway are on sale now through the Speedway's website. Four-day admission passes, providing access Thursday through Sunday, can be purchased for $60 per person. Single-day admission for Thursday is $15, and single-day passes are $25 for Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Additionally, Tower Terrace Suite Club passes are available for the event, which provide entry to a suite in Tower Terrace with views of the Main Straightaway. The back balcony provides infield views and a picturesque view of the Indianapolis skyline. A cash bar will be available in the suite and light snacks supplied each day. Four-day Club passes, providing access Thursday through Sunday, can be purchased for $225 per person. Single-day Club passes are $75 for Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
The Sports Car Club of America, Inc., founded in 1944, is a 67,500-member motorsports organization that incorporates all facets of autocross, rally and road racing at both Club and professional levels. With headquarters in Topeka, Kansas, the SCCA annually sanctions over 2,000 events through its 116 Regions and subsidiary divisions.

[h=2]Preview SCCA’s Toledo Tour with turbo Thunderbird videos[/h] Friday, 28 July 2017


By Philip Royle


This weekend, the Tire Rack SCCA Solo Championship Tour heads to Swanton, Ohio, for what is known in SCCA autocross circles as the Toledo Tour. This event is the final round of SCCA's national autocross series prior to the Tire Rack Solo National Championships, which takes place Sept. 5-8, 2017, at Lincoln Airpark in Lincoln, Neb. And registered for this weekend's big Ohio showdown is Ethan Bradbury driving one of the most unique C Prepared builds around: a late 1980s turbo Ford Thunderbird.
Bradbury isn't new to autocross – we've seen his Thunderbird take on many traditional CP-class Mustangs and Camaros at autocrosses over the years. And since we're looking for an excuse to preview SCCA's live timing and scoring at this weekend's Toledo Championship Tour, we can think of nothing better than to showcase videos illustrating what this 2.3-liter, 300-horsepower, turbo Thunderbird can do.
The first two videos are of the car at the Toledo autocross site, while the third video comes from a past Solo National Championships event, offering a showcase of what SCCA's C Prepared class looks like (the Thunderbird appears around the 3:30 mark).

88 Ford Thunderbird TC CPrepared Undercar axle flex WITH traction!
By Fordguy545
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lREFl3RzSRo

First runs on concrete with the new setup trying to sort out rear axle setup, Car ended up pulling the front inside tire 8-10" off the ground till the rear shocks run out of travel. Going to be changing springs and swaybars before the next event.

Behind the wheel at SCCA's Toledo Solo Tour

Monday, 31 July 2017


By Philip Royle


This past weekend, nearly 300 SCCA autocross competitors trekked to Toledo Express Airport in Swanton, Ohio, for the final round of the Tire Rack SCCA Solo Championship Tour. This 10 weekend autocross series culminates in a winner-take-all SCCA national championship event in Lincoln, Neb., during the first week of September. While not a points series, the Solo Championship Tour leading up to the Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships sets the stage for what will undoubtedly play out at Lincoln Airpark – consequently, competition is tight all year long, with competitors never failing to put forth their best.
One of the tightest class competitions at the Toledo Championship Tour during the July 29-30 weekend was Street Touring Ultra. Composed of modified Nissan 350Zs, Subaru WRX STis, C5 Chevrolet Corvettes and the like, STU is a fast, demanding class with some of the nation's top drivers contending. At the Toledo Tour, 20 drivers showed up, with Andrew Ramos besting all to eke out victory by a scant 0.141 seconds.
Luckily, Ramos posted in-car footage from his winning run on the second day of the two-day competition, allowing us to experience what it takes to win in SCCA's national-level autocross competition.
