Central Florida Region Tire Rack Street Survival School for 2014 is
Saturday, November 1st, at the Seminole State College Police Training Facility, Gun
Range Rd., Geneva Fl.
If you are interested in signing up your son, daughter or grandkids
go to www.streetsurvival.org
for more information.
Of course, it is open to everybody, SCCA member or not: 15 1/2 with a permit,
a current licensed teen or someone older up to 22 years of age.
It would be a good idea for parents and grandparents of CFR teens interested in this
program to register early to assure that they get a slot, as things do tend
to fill up fast. This will be the only CFR TRSSS scheduled this year.
The school has a maximum enrollment of 30 students. Entry fee is $75.00.
Entry Cap Reached for OCCC Event - 7/13/2014
Please pass the word... we have reached our driver cap for the OCCC event this Sunday 7/13. There is a waitlist available at DLB racing (register as normal and you will be waitlisted automatically during that process), and that will remain open until midnight tonight (7/11). There will also be a waitlist started at the event for walk-up registrations, however these will be behind those on the DLB waitlist. On-site registration will be conducted as follows:
1) On-site registrants will be added to the waitlist behind those on the online waitlist.
2) Once registration closes (promptly at 9am), we will fill in the wait-list spots (from no-shows), in order, starting with the online waitlist, until we reach the cap.
3) We MAY increase the cap on-site depending on course and anticipated weather conditions/timing, but no guarantees.
Please be on time!
Street Survival Story
If you haven't seen the link above, CFR is again hosting a Tire Rack Street Survival School. This is a safe teen program designed to provide real-world experience to teens in defensive driving and accident avoidance. To demonstrate the importance of such a school, and as thanks all those who volunteer their time to put these on, I want to relate the following story we just received from a grateful father upon receiving notification that we are again hosting a school: "This (notification) comes just one day after I said a prayer, and gave thanks to God for my daughter taking this course on April 3rd 2010 at the same venue in Geneva. Yesterday, she was traveling on I-95, in wet conditions, when she seems to have hit some standing water in her Fiat 500. The Car hydroplaned but thanks to you and Street Survival, she had been there before! She managed to keep the car from spinning and with God's Grace, no one was hurt. I don't think she fully comprehends what happened, what she did or how she was able to do it, but I Do. My Eternal Gratitude to you, Street Survival, Tire Rack, BMW CCA and all the SCCA volunteers."
Classic American Muscle (CAM) Class now available!
CFR is now supporting the new CAM class at the regional level. Check out the CAM Class Introduction
at Solo Matters. The CFR CAM rules are still forming, but those under consideration are: Cars close to an ESP car - must be able to be registered for the street, 140-treadwear tires this year moving to 200 next year, rear-drive 4-seaters with solid rear axles, no missing fenders or structural panels. We'll be happy to take your input!
Announcing New CFR PDX Website and Sebring PDX May 31st
Weather Update, Daytona Saturday
I've been getting inquiries about tomorrow's Solo event at DIS and whether (no pun intended) we will still hold the event in light of the weather forecast. The answer is this:
Yes. We run rain or shine, but we do pause for unsafe conditions such as lightning, heavy downpour, etc.
That said, if we have a sustained "pause" that keeps us from being able to conduct the event within our allotted time, we will have to call it at that time. But.... that is a "game time" decision.
If that happens, I'll figure out some sort of equitable credit situation for Saturday's drivers.
SO.... PLEASE be prepared for rain. This means bring a poncho or a rain suit, bring large trash bags to put your stuff in when it's cleaned out of your car for Tech and your run-heat. Bring stuff to tie down your tents (we've pretzeled many a tent in the wind). Bring extra shoes and socks for when yours get soaked... basically whatever you think you need for rain.
Brooksville registration closes tonight at 11pm
If you want to attend this event on 5/11, you must register before registration closes because there is no on-site registration allowed for Brooksville events. As of the time of this posting, there are only 22 driver spots left, so do not delay, register now! Here is the event info link
. This is a direct link to online registration
Cool video from Deland
I want to thank the DeLand RC Club for coming out and taking video of some our our runs this past Sunday. Here is a video
of our Solo Chair's first run integrated with video from his helmet cam... enjoy!
Schedule Update - OCCC!
Please note that the dates for OCCC have been updated in the schedule. The site was not available on the original dates we requested (3rd weekend), so OCCC pushed us up to the second weekend in both July and August. The new OCCC dates are now July 13th and August 10th.

- 2014 Class Changes
Weekend Memberships & Online Regstration (Non-Members)
Weekend memberships are required for non-SCCA members. We are continuing the
reduced fee of $10 for 2014. You can redeem up to two weekend memberships within
60-days of the event you purchased it to get a total of $30 off ($15 each) of
an annual membership, so that is even MORE incentive to join SCCA. We are asking
all non-members to please register and pre-pay online and complete
the weekend membership form there. This will make on-site check-in much faster
for everyone. If you cannot make the event you pre-register for, you will be
issued an event credit for that event. Non-member event credits are good for
one future pre-registration only. In other words, if you pre-register for a
future event using your event credit then no-show that event, you will
lose the event credit.
Onsite Registration/Check-in (Members)
To help complete registration faster, we are asking that all members preregister
and pre-pay online. There will be two lines for registration:
Pre-registered/paid, and all others. If you did not pre-register and pre-pay
online you will be stuck in the slow line. Hopefully everyone will take advantage
of the pre-registration and payment tools provided online and speed things up!
If you cannot make the event you pre-register for, you will be issued an event
credit for that event. Members event credits are good until you actually run
an event. In other words,even if you register for a future event using your
event credit then no-show that event, you will still have your event
Late Registration Fee (All)
On-site registration closes at 9am sharp. If you are not in line at Timing and
Scoring by the time registation is declared closed you will be charged a $10
late fee to register.
Permanent Numbers Purged
Permanent numbers have been purged, and will be purged at the end of each season.
You must re-register for your permanent number using the link on the home page.
Here are the permanent number rules:
- Only SCCA Members may have permanent numbers
- To have permanent numbers, you must use "permanent numbers" such
as magnetics, vinyl, or paint (i.e. No tape or paper numbers).
- You may register the same number in multiple classes, but ONLY if you actively
switch between classes.
- Reserved numbers will NOT be available for use onsite, so please do not register
for a permanent number if you do not plan to run consistently this year.
Registration Database Purged - PLEASE REGISTER ONLINE
Each year we purge our AxWare database. This means that everyone will
need to have their data re-entered into the system. The BEST way to do this
is to preregister online for the first (and every) event. Doing so will automatically
enter your data into AxWare, honor your permanent number, and also give you
the opportunity to pre-pay and get in the quick check-in line onsite.

2013 Class and Pax Championship Rules Reminder
As we enter the final 3rd of our 2013 season, I thought it would be a good idea to remind everyone of the Class and Championship Points rules. Originally we started out with 16 events (trophy rules say 17, but it was 16), with 10 required to qualify for a class trophy. Since then, we have added 4 Brooksville events for a total of 20 events for the season. The minimum qualifying number of events will remain at 10. Counting this Sunday (8/25) you have 6 more opportunities to get your 10 events in. See the full rules
for tie breaker and PAX rules.
