SCCA Road Racing has separated its road into various levels and series in order to accommodate a wide range of resources and time commitments. These levels cater to everyone from beginners to seasoned pros. SCCA provides a home for your racing, no matter what level you belong to.
Drivers School/Club Race Experience
SCCA road racing offers Drivers School and Club Race Experience for beginners and those on a budget. All you need is an SCCA authorised racecar and the proper driver safety gear to complete each of these levels, and you don’t need any prior experience.
Club Race Experience is a programme meant to introduce new racers to the SCCA. CRE is a low-risk, introductory wheel-to-wheel encounter with coaching. It permits both licenced racers and complete novices to compete in racecars that have been lightly prepped.
SCCA Drivers Schools are a fantastic place to start if you want to compete at higher levels, such as Regionals, Majors, and the Runoffs. SCCA instructors will walk you through the procedures and abilities you’ll need to continue racing in the SCCA.
SCCA offers Vintage Racing to drivers using older classic and historic racing automobiles. Because many of the automobiles may be irreplaceable, these events are a little more gentlemanly than previous Road Racing categories.
The rules for SCCA Regional Road Racing are the same as for the higher levels, and the points series are usually limited to a few states and tracks. All of the Majors and Super Tour classes will be available, but regionals will have the option of adding more classes to meet the demands of local trends.
Major Conference Players
Conference Major events are part of the United States Majors Tour, which is organised by SCCA Regions. These events feature U.S. Majors Tour classes, as well as Regional classes, depending on the event. These races are usually a little more heated, and drivers typically come to compete against the best.
The Hoosier Super Tour is an annual event that takes place in Indiana.
The Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA Super Tour comprises of ten race weekends at ten of the country’s best tracks. It’s a part of the United States Majors Tour, featuring a Nationwide Points Championship, and it’s a qualifying event for the SCCA National Championship Runoffs.
The Hoosier Super Tour runs from January to July and provides a unique experience for both racers and spectators. Live on-track action at , a “Super Tour Radio presented by Hoosier Racing Tire” programme, specialised staffing, and improved weekend social activities are all part of the Hoosier Super Tour.
The yearly “Runoffs,” which serve as a meeting for the greatest SCCA racers in the country to go head-to-head and prove who is the best, is the SCCA’s crown jewel event.
Along with its amateur categories, the SCCA has a long history of professional racing. The USRRC sports cars kicked off the SCCA pro series, which has since expanded to include the ground-pounding Trans Am and 1,100-horsepower Can Am vehicles.
Classes for Road Races
In SCCA road racing, cars and vehicles are classified based on their type and modifications. You might see groups of Mazda Miatas competing against one another, Porsches competing against Ferraris, or formula cars with wings gathered together. After all, pitting a 3,500-pound practically street-legal car against a 1,100-pound purpose-built race car wouldn’t be fair.
