Racing in SoPac
Club Racing is indeed an integral part of SCCA. SCCA's Club Racing program is designed to fulfill the need of the "amateur athlete." It is a comprehensive, nationwide program featuring races held throughout the year that cater to the driver that perhaps prefers to test his or her skill on a part-time basis, rather than compete full-time on SCCA's professional circuits. Nevertheless, because the competition at the club level is so fierce, many professionals also participate in this program to further hone their skills and compete at SCCA's Runoffs®.
Club Racing is the backbone of the SCCA with a program for almost everyone. Club Racing offers the opportunity to experience the excitement by climbing into a race car and competing against other amateur drivers or working on a corner within inches of all the action.
In the Southern Pacific Division, six National races and 35 Regional races are held on a variety of road courses during the season. Some of these are "double" or "triple" meaning that the competitor can gain points for TWO (or more) events all in one weekend. Tracks include Willow Springs International Raceway, Buttonwillow Raceway, Firebird International Raceway, Phoenix International Raceway and California Speedway. See the schedule for more information.
We have approximately 500 licensed Competition Drivers in the Division and an equal number of volunteer worker/ officials which support these events in many capacities including Flagging & Communications, Registration, Race Control, Sound Control, Scrutineer/Tech, Emergency Services/Medical, Starter and more. All are licensed and have been trained to support the various specialties involved in auto racing. We have about 1300 members who currently hold crew licenses. These folks support their favorite driver's and teams.
