The first SCCA Club Race at Chuckwalla is coming April 6 and 7. Its the first race San Diego Region will be sponsoring in a bazillion years.
If you're not familiar with it, Chuckwalla is about midway between LA, Phoenix, and Vegas, just a bit off I-10 at Rice Road. The raceway is a smooth, 16 turn, 2.68 mile course. Its great fun to drive, with elevation changes, a medium length front straight, and a banked bowl. The track's facilities have been much improved since it opened- it has permanent restrooms with showers, fuel, and shade.
It is structured as a two race regional championship event, so you have an opportunity to be the San Diego Region Champion over a single weekend. It also has also made provisions for custom classes. Basically, the entrants can make their own classes if they wish, with a three car minimum. So, if you wanted to have a class for 1990 only Spec Miatas, find two friends with a like mind and go to town. Want to have a T1 class based on the 2010 rulebook? That's good too. Of course, all cars need to meet SCCA safety requirements, and have an SCCA logbook with a current tech.
In addition to the custom classes, there will be a number of Cal Club and AZ Region regional classes available.
Registration is open now on motorsportreg.com. You can see the entry form and schedule at www.sccagridlines.com. If you would like to work at the event, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your specialty and any special requests.
We look forward to a great event, and hope to see you all out there!
