    New track?

    EZ, The road race track @ IRP is no longer used. Nelson Ledges, does not have a National or Regional SCCA race next year. I do not know if it is safety, or track condition concerns . Wateford Hills hosts a Vintage event the end of July. Well subscribed by VSCDA folks, and we are...

    Erik, Off topic, but you just jarred a memory for me. My buddy Rod ( friend of Jack and Judy ) built a E-prod Spider patterned after the car you now own. Lot's of good stories, but one weekend early in the cars life i was certain the car had it in for me. He ran a older but willing...

    I talked to the main man today

    Rick, I agree, in the big picture it all stems from the weight issue. I do dis-agree that everything else is irrelevant. One must assess who, what, where, why ,etc. An overall picture of knowing is way better than assuming. For whatever reason, powers that be sent a less than rosy...

    I talked to the main man today

    Not to always ditto " what Hap says" , but again i must agree. A couple of weeks ago i posted that i had e-mailed Tony but not heard from him. Shortly thereafter i got a very nice e-mail with a sincere apology for not responding sooner. As i suspected he was a tad busy. I called his number...

    Dave, No problem. I am not trying to call the guy out, i do not even know his name or need to. Just curious if anybody knew other opinions. I trust and value the opinions of all here. And to be sure, i have zero to do with anything on this, just trying to learn and be objective...

    New SVRA rules

    Good posts all! Dave, i agree. It is better to control ones destiny, than have it controlled for you. ( so to speak ) Having been on rules committees, (Nothing like this mind you) I can say it's a thankless task. The Spitfire is mentioned often, anybody know if they ( he ) miss having...

    Okay folks, don't make me pull this forum over to the side of the road ! :) Folks have the right to disagree. Let's keep it this civil or better shall we ? Let's set a standard for a forum, not succumb to one. I will bet a million dollars the high-up folks @ S.V.R.A. are more than aware of...

    Well that help clear things up for me. The " we have always done it that way" mantra. Thanks Jack for adding a perspective. I like your proposal. Hard to think it met resistance. Yes i would be one of the "225" guys, but i would still build my car the other way. I like a challenge.

    To be sure. Autographs sessions : ( does buying fuel or tires count? ) Personal appearances : ( maybe registration or god forbid a steward ) Now i understand,,,,, heavy sigh.

    Gary, I agree. A driver is part of the car on track, so why if we car about weights at all, weigh with out driver? Maybe somebody can shed light on the subject as to why the current rules are in place. There has to be a good logical reason.

    Gary, I have! Just realized i posted opposite of my corrected question. Being " not light" i of course vote for WITH driver. (ha-ha) I now realize the error. DOH!

    Peter K , I was just "sound bite quoting" Dave . Surely we all agree the "inspiration" for this was the F-prod topic starter. Erik,, Please share why you advocate car with driver for weight. Curious. Joel oops, edit, Car WITHOUT driver.

    " Lets have a reality check. Let's start with group 1 and FP in particular as that seems to be at the center of this dispute." Yep. I agree. Let's start with seeing if there are olive branches available , then agreeing on the goal, and when and how to get cracking. Otherwise, we have not...

    New SVRA rules

    "- Racing has always been about passion. Sometimes it isn't pretty." Nice quote. I often say racing is part passion, part ego, and part talent. How well i can control ego and passion allows more room for talent. Positives i take from this? Well, things have been civil for the most part. I...

    New SVRA rules

    I am in sit back and watch mode. Long before this forum topic, i sent a "making contact" e-mail to Mr Perella. Just me extending a hand out to shake, and introduce myself and my club. The justification was to see if His and my sanctioning bodies can benefit one another at the least by having...
