News

Petrol Lounge will be hosting us again this year for our Year End Party. Food is still TBD. Of course, we will have beer, wine, and some non-alcoholic drinks.

Registration

We are looking for feedback on the following ideas for 2018.  Please email me, president@spokes.org , or any other BOD found under the "Club Info & History" link

  1. Adding an unlimited 200TW class.  A "run what you brung" with 200TW class. Class name and lettering TBD.  PAX used would be similar to CAMS.
  2. Moving to bump or index classes for year end trophies.  The goal here is to promote more competition at the events.  Cars would still use their SCCA classes for markings but scoring would be grouped into the index classes based on PAX.  We already have the 'R' class for Prepared and Mod.  The idea is not fully fleshed out.   The main concern now is to evaluate how the workers for event would be impacted.  The initial idea for this will result in the following
    1. R class: All race tires, DOT or slick.  SP, SM, P, and M.
    2. ST : All the street touring and CAM combined. Included item 1 if approved.
    3. Street1:  SS to CS
    4. Street2:  DS to HS
    5. X class as it is today.  A general PAX class for all the experienced drivers
    6. Novice.  Same as it is today
Spokes will only have 10 events this year due to Hurricane Harvey.  No sites were available to reschedule the cancelled event on a date that did not have a conflict.  The 9th event will be out Oct 1 event at CoTA and the 10th event is at SAR on Nov 19.  I appreciate your understanding.

The forecast has not improved.

The event this Sunday will not be held due to Hurricane Harvey.  We need to think of everyone's safety with the possibility of flooding and high winds.   Please stay tuned as we work to reschedule this event.  And thank you for your understanding.
