Subject: Proposal for 2007 SCCA Championship Series
The following proposal was presented by me at the USRRC Town Hall Meeting on Saturday. Many of us fear that we will see the demise of the National RoadRally Championship in the near future and I am hoping to have suggested a format that would entice the many regional and local rallyists to become envolved.
Thanks for your interest in rallying. And thanks for whatever comments you can offer to this forum. Please feel free to share this proposal with whomever you choose. More discussion is better than less.
Proposal for 2007 SCCA Championship Series
RoadRally Town Hall Meeting - October 22, 2005
Premise – Realign the current National RoadRally Championship to bring all levels of competitors into a single series for the enhancement of the sport.
Format – Eliminate National and Divisional Rallies and replace with Regional Rallies.
Rally Format – Each SCCA Regional Rally will use either the RRRs or their own regional Rally Regulations. The regulations to be used will be identified in the entry flyer. The type of rally will be clearly identified as Course, Tour, or GTA (Gimmick). Compliance with the event regulations will be administered by the RRB only in those cases where the RRRs are to be used.
Classes – Championship classes to be Course, Tour and GTA and will be further separated through classification by Lifetime Points. Year-end award to be made in Lifetime Point categories of Grand Master, Master, Expert, and Senior (all non classified entrants will be considered to be in the Senior Classification) for each championship class. Individual Class determined by Lifetime Points ranking as of January 1 of Championship year. Future Lifetime Points will be awarded on those events complying with existing RRRs having a minimum length of 180 miles and will be designated as a Lifetime Points Rally. Championship Points earned for these events will count as two events.
Championship Points – Points to be awarded per the RRRs in whichever regional class the entrant is entered on the individual event. Each of the twelve Championships to be based on the point total of an individual’s best ten finishes. No worker points will be awarded.
