We have had a couple of changes to the Spokes for 2018.
First, we are moving to a 1 year membership (365 day) instead of the calendar year membership. We will no longer offer a discounted membership rate mid year. The change is to improve our ability to communicate with the membership via Axware emails. Anyone who has already paid their membership fees for the year have been updated with this new policy. The end date for your membership is 1 year from when you paid, instead of previous date of 12-31-2018.
We are also offering a new package deal at the Tech Day and Membership drive. The package consists of Spokes single membership and all the Spokes run events for the year entry fees for the price of $295, with a $5 discount for cash/check. This offer is good at the Tech day, Feb 03 at Winding Road Racing.
We are also making changes to our passenger policy. We will be changing the requirement from 16 years old and a valid drivers license to the SCCA policy of “no younger than twelve (12) years old or is at least 57” tall”. This change will have some procedures going forward that will be required. Namely, we will need the parent(s) to contact the President of Spokes and fill out the minor Waiver form prior to event day. Watch for a future update at a later date when we have the rules finalized.
Spokes will also be requiring all SSR, Street Prepared, Street Modified, Prepared, and Modified classes use the “R” class if running slicks or less than 200TW tires. For those cars using 200TW or greater tires will need to run the “T” Tire class. These classes were previously optional.
Finally, we will now count Novice entries as participation for Year End Trophy eligibility. For example, if you ran Novice E Street for 3 times, and then 3 more times in Open class, will meet eligibility requirement if we have 12 events. The rulebook will be updated with this change shortly.
