    I'm wondering if there is any way that we can get tracks to provide racing gas that always meets SCCA's legality requirements. Can the SCCA regions make a formal request to the companies supplying racing gas at tracks? I really like the convenience of buying gas at the track. It is extremely inconvenient to make other arrangements, and more dangerous, too. I'm not really equipped to transport gasoline. I know that Road Atlanta and Roebling Road had problems with illegal gas in 2000. Maybe it is different now. I hope so. I don't really blame the tracks as much as SCCA. I don't understand what was so bad about the track gas that SCCA didn't like. I thought it was the dangerous exotic stuff they wanted to protect us from. I assumed (wrongly?) that commonly available track gas would be less lethal than the exotic blends.

    Wait, isn't RR owned by the SCCA? I thought I heard that somewhere, though I'm not sure, I haven't been there in over a year.

    If this is the case, does anyone else see the problem? SCCA owns the track => track gas doesn't meet SCCA requirements. What the heck?

    Bucanneer Region does own Roebling Road. I don't have any first hand experience with the fuel problem, but I would guess that if there was a problem, it could have been due to the supply on hand. The tracks can't just dump what they have and start over. If no one else has any details on this, I'll ask around at the SEDiv meeting in a couple of weeks and see what I can learn.

    Thanks for the response, Ken. I understand that it could have been due to the supply on hand. The problem that I'm aware of at Roebling was early in 2000.

    I would really appreciate it if you could bring this up at the SEDiv meeting (I can't attend). If you could post a reply when you return that would be great.
