SCCA CLUB RACING
The Sports Car Club of America runs a variety of racing programs including driver schools, time trial events, and full on wheel to wheel racing programs. Our primary
division of participation is the Southeast Division (SEDIV), which covers Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tenneseee, Georgia, the Carolinas & Virginia. SEDIV runs
multiple events every month from January through November every year.
The SEDIV runs a points series known as SARRC (South Atlantic Road Racing Championship), this series runs dozens of races each year, with your best six races
counting towards the championship. At the end of the SARRC season (usually October) a double-points event is held at Roebling Road.
SARRC races are sprint-format events, usually about 30 minutes in length, with most of the events being "double header" weekends. The races do feature multiple
classes running at the same time. SARRC is open to all of our racing programs.
SCCA MAJORS TOUR
This is the the top level of SCCA club racing, and can serve as a bridge to professional endeavors. The Majors tour consists of a set of 12 races on the eastern
coast of the United States, plus two optional special events.
The East Coast Majors tour weekends are typically double-header three-day weekends that have slightly longer races and feature more track time than SARRC
events. As with SARRC, the run groups feature multiple classes, although split starts are a common feature. Your best 10 races count towards the points
championship, and the Majors series usually has some contingency prizes for series champions.
As an option you can also choose to run the June Sprints, a special event held at the historic Road America speedway that is often heavily promoted and has its
own extra contingency sponsorships. Another special event is the SCCA National Championsihp Runoffs, which is held at Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca in
F1600 PRO SERIES
This is one of the most competitive open-wheel series in North America and is exclusively for the F1600 / FF chassis cars running Honda or Ford power. Some of
the best teams in the countr compete in this series.
The weekends feature single-class groups, with races 30 minutes in length on 3-4 day double-header weekends (including optional practice days). The series has
10-14 races spread over 5-7 weekends. A signature feature of the F1600 series is the tire rule: you get a total of six tires between both races and their qualifying
sessions. This policy not only keeps costs down but also rewards good setups and smooth driving.
