The following guest participated: Jim Wheeler, CRB Chairman. The secretary
acknowledges that these minutes may not appear in chronological order and that all participants were not present for the entire
meeting.
The meeting was called to order by Vice Chair Patullo.
EXECUTIVE REPORT:
Noble presented the Executive Report with recognition that membership is up, staff is energized and motivated by recent
restructuring and club growth programs. Initiatives are in place to support our Regions and current programs as well as the
growth initiatives in place and planned for the future.. The Strategic Vision Distilled: Grow recognition of our brand and what
it means, grow membership, provide greater value to membership and partners, grow participation in club events, expand the
club’s offerings to different levels of participation. The developed Tactical Approach focuses on ways to build SCCA “stickiness” or affinity leading to higher membership retention
via improved experience at events and better membership programs. Exploring expertise of our partners and members to create
exciting events for new and existing members including youth oriented programs.
 Wagner presented an overview of Track Night In America “TNIA” which taps into the motorsports enthusiast culture, getting
people out on track in pace laps, instructor led sessions, or advanced lapping, and exposing them to the social elements of the
Club but geared for short periods of time (evenings). We are targeting 15-20 tracks nationwide with 5-6 events each and 100
participants each. The Solo model will be used, ie work/run for events. Regions are encouraged to co-participate and National
Staff is in communication with Regions with a home track that is being.by showcasing their strengths as well as participating with
the goal of activating new members into our existing programs and overall membership growth.. TNIA is specifically targeting
a new market that hasn’t been previously serviced by the club. It is not targeted at regular PDX track day participants, as
they already know how to get on track. TNIA will have nationwide branding, partnership with sponsors (coupon discounts),
membership discounts, and impact reporting for sponsors. BoD and Wagner discussed that the message (new market target) is
getting lost on Regions with strong PDX programs and Directors will help with initial contacts and messaging.
 Prill presented a new concept coined “ TrackFest” to help build new membership and automotive experiences. Track Fest is
SCCA marketed and operationally supported mix of events with elements such as TNIA, selected regional race groups, an
enduro event and social elements over a 2 day weekend to give our members a single day opportunity to participate and to
showcase who we are as a Club to the larger enthusiast market. This would include a Starting Line school for road racing for
new participants, lapping for more advanced, and showcase selected regional race groups. Cars would be SCCA and SCCA
non-theme, low dollar cars for enduro. Intended to be low pressure but fun way to get on track.
В FINANCE REPORT:
Pfannenstiel reported on financial results to date. We are +- 2-4 percent on revenue and operating expenses compared to
budget. Membership and sanction fees are up, sponsorship slightly below budgeted amount. Variances to budget are well
understood and all excursions actively being addressed.
SCCA Fastrack News

Pfannenstiel submitted a proposal to have a simplified and more transparent approach to sanction fees, and make it such that
it allowed small regions to grow, not overly penalize large regions, and not impact the way regions do business (event types vs
sanctions). Sanction fees for Regional racing will be assessed based on a flat fee per licensed driver per weekend. Insurance
will be the same manner. It is our intention to capture the dippers.
 Lewis began the discussion for the proposed 2015 Budget. The previous year’s budgets were aimed at investing in programs
and growth across the club. The budget proposed for 2015 shows a moderate profit. Proposed increase in bundled Majors
fee was discussed and a shift in allocation in the Majors entry fee and insurance. This ended up looking at the components in
the Majors assessment to regions and the BoD decided that in the end Tow Fund would be eliminated which allows SCCA to
reduce the Majors assessment fee to regions. BoD recognizes that there will be some disappointment in this decision but that
in the interest of cost control and the fact that several thousand drivers pay into the Tow Fund and around 170 received payout
in 2014, combined with the rotation of the Runoffs around the country, it was time to eliminate the Runoffs Tow Fund. Divisions
and regions are reminded that they have the options to create their own tow fund for Runoffs bound participants if they wish.
В MOTION: Eliminate the Tow Fund program paid to Runoffs drivers. Kephart/Helman. PASSED 9-4. Against- Lewis,
Lindstrand, McCarthy, Pulliam.
В В MOTION: Approve 2015 budget as presented. Lewis/Kephart. PASSED 12-0-1. Abstain McCarthy
В CLUB RACING REPORT:
Ozment presented a 2014 Runoffs Report and Recap. There were 517 total drivers, 191 (37%) first time Runoffs and 313 (61%)
West Coast. 419 of the drivers came via the Majors program. 449 total workers over the 7 days. The Runoffs financial summary
was presented. Some budget areas higher, some lower than expenses, but overall the event ended up in the black not counting
staff resources allocated for Runoffs planning and execution. Lessons learned in first of annual event rotation: in spite of
operational issues, it was a successful and safe event, worker numbers were about what was expected and needed, even local
region expertise was surprised by some issues encountered. Having Chiefs familiar with Runoffs is more beneficial than having
Chiefs familiar with the local region as Runoffs processes greatly differ from Region events.
В 2015 Runoffs Daytona progress update was presented.
В MOTION: To approve the following recommended GCR Changes for BOD approval related to the 2015 US Majors Tour
(with one item related to Runoffs eligibility for SRF3 - 3.7.3.A.1.b.3): Harris/Kephart. PASSED Unanimous

events.
3.1.2.
Regional Races
All races, except U.S. Majors Tour events, are designated Regional races. The requirements for Regional
races are given below and in the referenced appendices. Some Regional races may be designated as Division
Championship races.
Regional races are ordinarily open to the following competitors:
A. Drives holding SCCA Full Competition Licenses, SCCA Pro Licenses, SCCA Vintage Licenses, and those

U.S. Majors Tour Championship Events
A competitor must meet both participation and performance requirements.
a.
Participation Requirements

A competitor must meet one of the following:
1. Finish in the top 10 of a Conference’s point standings in class.
2. Score points in the top 50% of Nationwide point standings (see c below) for entrants in
his class.
Example: If 100 drivers enter U.S. Majors Tour races in the current race season, the top 50,
who score any points, will receive an invitation.
3. Score enough class points in the current year Nationwide Points Standings to have
placed in the top 50% in the previous year’s National Points Standings for his class. This
criteria does not apply to SRF3 participants since there was no 2014 participation.

Class Compliance Chief:
There was BoD discussion around GCR language to create a Class Compliance Chief position. Class Compliance Chief would
in effect be a technical Czar for that class at that particular event. The original proposal to BoD was to create the position for use

BoD voted on 2 motions, original non-protestable, and modified with right of appeal.

Top 50% Divisional Qualifiers - Background and Rationale:
For 2014 Runoffs at MRLS BoD signed off on the following Top 50% qualification path:
В In addition for 2014 only, the SCCA Board of Directors will allow drivers in the top 50% of their class in the Majors Western
Conference (Northern Pacific and Southern Pacific) to be eligible for 2014 Runoffs invitations if space is available.
В Per VP Club Racing Terry Ozment there were 19 drivers that took advantage of the above 50% rule to attend the 2014 Runoffs
at MRLS. No issues were created by this.
В The proposed motion changes the one-time rule for 2014 into a general allowance going forward to future years (unless
changed by specific future BoD action) to be more inclusive while still maintaining some standards of performance wrt Divisional
qualification. It is specific to the Majors Conference (one or more Divisions) “hosting” the Runoffs, and not general nation-wide
by design to encourage participation in the Regional (Divisional) events of the respective Divisions in the Majors Conference
where the Runoffs are being held that year. Divisions in the Runoffs “hosting” Conference are encouraged to be inclusive and
coordinate inter-Divisional championship plans.
MOTION: In addition to Top 3 (Top 5 SRF/SM) Divisional points earners nationwide,В SCCA BoD will allow drivers in
the top 50% of their Divisional championships in the Division hosting the Runoffs to be eligible for Runoffs invitations if
space is available in their class. Langlotz/Butler. PASSED 7-6 Against Harris, Lewis, Lindstrand, Hanushek, McCarthy,
Patullo.
Divisional Path to Runoffs - Participation Requirements
В Rationale: This request will bring the 3 weekend participation requirement for Runoffs via the Divisional path in line with the 3
weekend participation required via the Majors path.
MOTION: Change GCR 3.7.3.A.2.a from “four” weekends to “three” weekends. The section would then read:
“Participation Requirement: A competitor must participate on track in a minimum of three Division Championship points
weekends.” Zekert/Langlotz. FAILED. 3-10. FOR Harris, Langlotz, Zekert.
В Chairman Walsh established a working group to study our current medical standards and review process with an expectation the
group would report back with recommendations or guidance to the board of directors that would help in their mission to provide
clarity to members. The new process allows for the elimination of SCCA review by allowing one’s personal physician make the
determination for fitness of medical qualification.
MOTION: To approve Operations Manual and GCR changes related to new Medical Process as presented. Patullo/
Zekert. PASSED Unanimous.

В OPERATIONS MANUAL
Discussion of Operations Manual items that needed to be updated.
SCCA Fastrack News
January 2015
Page 13
MOTION: Revise Part B Section 2.2.4 ‐ Voting ‐ to read “Voting or balloting on any matter of SCCA policy may be
conducted in person, by phone or by remote conference at regular or special meetings of the Board of Directors. When
decisions by the Board are necessary between meetings, voting may be conducted by, telephone, remote conference
or other means.” Walsh/Langlotz. PASSED Unanimous
В В The official policy for Membership (Operations manual section 1.4) is to charge one year of dues for each year missed. For
example if a member has a five year lapse of membership and wants to maintain their original member-since-date, the cost is
five year of dues at the current price, or $325 for an individual member.
В While the current policy achieves the goal of encouraging members to renew each year, it is viewed as punitive and a source
of dissatisfaction. With approval we propose to adopt a policy that encourages continuous membership and is fair to all. The
change we are proposing is $100 for two to five years of lapsed membership, and $200 for more than five years of membership.
MOTION: Change Operations Manual, 1.4 from “or by payment of one (1) year’s current national dues for each full year
of non-membership” to “or by payment of one year’s current national dues for one year lapse, $100 for two to five years
of non-membership, or $200 for more than five years of non-membership.” Helman/Zekert. PASSED Unanimous.
Ops Manual Request for change to SCCA Operations Manual
Section 6.3.1 no longer accurately reflects the current title and responsibility of a Division Solo Official as listed in the SCCA
Operations Manual. The following “Motion” is designed to bring the Operations Manual into sync with the National Solo Rules
and current practice.
MOTION: Change Section 6.3.1 as below in the SCCA Operations Manual Kephart/Lindstrand. PASSED unanimous.
6.3.1 Solo Development Coordinator

2. #15439 – (December Fastrack – SCCA Staff) Change/Add Main Hoop Bracing Allowance
In section 9.4.5.C.1 change/add main hoop bracing allowance as follows:
Two (2) seat Sports Racing cars with full width main hoops of the hoop (See figure 12). All bracing on full
width cages must be the same diameter and wall thickness as the main hoop. Formula and single seat Sports
Racing cars under 1500 lbs. may use bracing with a minimum dimension of 1.0” diameter by .080” wall
thickness or Chromoly 4130 1.0” diameter by .065” wall thickness. F500 cars up to 875 pounds may use 1020
DOM mild steel roll cage bracing with a 1.0” diameter by .065 wall thickness. Braces attached to monocoque
chassis must be welded to plates not less than .080” thick and backed up on the inner side by plates of equal
thickness using bolts of Grade 5/Metric 8.8 or better with 5/16” minimum diameter.
In section 9.4.5.C.2, add the language as follows:
“Formula and single seat Sports Racing cars under 1500 lbs., may use tubing with a minimum dimension of
1.0” diameter by .080” wall thickness or Chromoly 4130 1.0” diameter by .065” wall thickness. F500 cars up to
875 pounds may use 1020 DOM mild steel roll cage bracing with a 1.0” diameter by .065 wall thickness. When
monocoque construction is used as bracing for the front hoop, it must be approved on an individual basis. If a
high front hoop is used, it must be similar in shape to the rear hoop and have two horizontal tubes connecting
the top of the front hoop to the top of the main hoop. The bracing for the main hoop
remains the same.”

and crankВ pin andВ piston pin bore dimensions as stock, are permitted.
After extended review and discussion,В the CRB has determined that, based on a comparison ofВ the current
prices for race quality aftermarket connecting rodsВ and the cost of preparing stock rods and periodically
reconditioning them, this change will decrease the costs related to Production car racing.В ThisВ is to the
advantage of all competitors.В Additionally, the added reliability of race quality aftermarket rods is a material
advantage to Production car racers.В The CRB understands that this change may allow some cars to be more
competitive.В It is not possible to judge this in advance and make adjustments now.В The CRB is committed
to monitoring of the results of competition to make appropriate adjustments to particular cars if needed in the
future.В The results of member input on this question (considering both the initial group of letters and letters
received as a consequence of the request for member input, but without counting multiple letters from the
same writer) are 67 letters. 50 in favor of aftermarket rods for all cars, 4 for aftermarket rods only for certain

1. #15116 – (January Fastrack – David Cox) SM Cylinder Head (Runoffs Protests)
The CRB wishes to thank the hundreds of SM drivers and owners who have commented on this difficult
situation. В The CRB has been working closely with the SM Group to identify all of the issues that came up as a
result of the Runoffs compliance actions. В The CRB has determined that the best course is to use the regular
system to work through this problem. В The CRB instructed the SMAC to discuss the issues and prepare a recommendation for the CRB. В In turn,
the CRB is recommending (to the BoD) a slight change in the SM rules for 2015. В The SM Group (including
Mazda, SCCA and NASA) is currently contracting for dyno testing of various head configurations. В When that
testing is complete, and in conjunction with the SM Group, a letter will be submitted to the CRB system for
consideration by the SMAC and the CRB. В This may include changes in weights or restrictor plates, but it may
also include a recommendation that no changes be made. В No recommendations will be made to the BoD until
the data is complete. В The SM Group and the CRB are also monitoring the availability of cylinder heads and
the effect that will have on possible future rule changes.
At this time we are also recommending, to the BoD, that the SM compliance fee, in a form to be determined,
be reinstated and that the SM Group’s request be implemented for a traveling Tech squad to be deployed
during the 2015 season at SCCA and NASA events to be determined. В This Tech squad should be totally SM
savvy. В We are reviewing a possible re-write of portions of the GCR that would give this Tech squad additional
powers to levy penalties that are not currently allowed in the GCR.В The CRB recommends clarifying the existing rules by adding further definition and measurable
specifications for the plunge cut dimensions and orientation.
The specific CRB recommendation to the BoD is as follows:
Change GCR 9.1.7.C.1.f.3: 3. The throat area of the port consists of the 90 degree angle at the very bottom of
SCCA Fastrack News
January 2015
Page 23
the cast steel valve seat as it transitions to the aluminum casting below. It is permitted to plunge cut the throats
in order to correct for core shift that is commonly found in many cylinder heads. The cut must be cylindrical and
concentric to the valve guide axial centerline, within a tolerance of .005”, for the entire length of the cut. The
radius tangent to the cylindrical and bottom surfaces shall not exceed 0.375”. This cut cannot extend further
than the specified number below from the bottom of the ferrous valve seat. There can be no tooling or machine
marks in the head below this point. The area under the seat where the plunge cut ends and the casting
resumes cannot be blended by hand, machined, or chemically processed to create a smooth transition. The
Intersection of the machined surface of the plunge cut to the port casting shall not be altered, except that the
area under the short turn radius may be de-burred, with the de-burring not to exceed 1.5 mm in width.В В The 90
degree bend at the bottom of the valve seat and the aluminum directly below it will be measured with a gauge
and must conform to the maximum diameters and depths listed below.
MOTION: Approve add to #15634 – 9.1.7.C.3.p: Inner bushing(s) on the front upper control arms may be replaced with
offset bushings. Hanushek/Butler. PASSED 11-2 Against Langlotz, Lindstrand.

member, body, suspension, and drivetrain of the vehicle. Frame rails are present in Unibody, Tub-based, and
Tube Frame Cars. 
Section 17: Prepared Category
17.1.B: ...Competitors are strongly cautioned to make the minimum amount of modification required to affix a
given part and to not make tortured interpretations of this rule which will invoke Section 17.11 weight adjustments
(e.g., moving frame rails inboard, regardless of the reason, is considered to be a tortured interpretation).
17.2.C: ...Relocation, notching, or cutting of the chassis, frame, or subframe for tire clearance or moving
the wheels inboard is not allowed. Replacement of inner fenders or wheel wells to enable wider wheels and
tires are allowed.
#14876 Core Support Removal/Relocate Clarification
The PAC reminds competitors that Section 17 rules permit minor cutting, notching, or clearancing of components for
allowed modifications. This does not permit the wholesale removal of unneeded chassis or unibody components.  
The PAC thanks the member for the inquiry.
Change Proposals
General
#15275 Fix catchall Appendix A wording
The following rule change proposal is provided here for member review and comment: Change the second
paragraph under APPENDIX A – AUTOMOBILE CLASSES as follows:
“All unclassified cars will compete in the highest class for their category until specifically classified by the SEB,
unless covered by a “catch-all (i.e. non-make-specific) listing/description. To use the catch-alls at the end of the
specific car classes in Appendix A, start from the highest class in the category and work down the classes until a
class is found. Such unclassified cars will not be eligible for National Solo® Events or the Solo® National
Championships. Members should look for a TechBulletin in an early current-year issue of the official
SCCA® publication(Fastrack® News) at www.scca.com for details or contact the National office.”
#15360 Roll bar material specs
The following rule change proposal is submitted for member review and comment: In Appendix C, Section B.2,
change the tubing size/car weight table as follows:
Under 1000 lbs: 1.000 x 0.060
1000-1500: 1.250 x 0.090, 1.375 x 0.080
1501-2500: 1.500 x 0.095, 1.625 x 0.080
2501+: 1.500 x 0.120, 1.750 x 0.095, 2.000 x 0.080
For purposes of comparison, the current roll bar tubing minimum requirements per car weight are as follows:
Under 1000 lbs: 1.000 x 0.060
1000 - 1500: 1.250 x 0.090
Over 1500: 1.500 x 0.120, 1.750 x 0.095
Note: This brings Solo roll bar material standards in line with GCR roll cage material standards without affecting
previously compliant roll bars.
#15749 Floormats again
The following rule change proposal is submitted for member review and comment: Modify the current version of

2. #15718 (Scott Olsen) Brake Cooling Fans
Thank you for your support of brake duct fans for American Sedan.
3. #15808 (Sean Williams) Factory Service Manual vs. Performance Specifications
Thank you for your request for clarification of letter #15341.
Using compression ratio as an example, manufacturers may specify in the Factory Service Manual (FSM) a minimum service
dimension for the cylinder head.В Should, for instance, a blown head gasket require truing of that head, that process of cutting
the cylinder head would change the compression ratio.В Letter #15341 is intended to state that even though the FSM states
that minimum thickness, the FSM specified compression ratio must be maintained in any build.
For Full Preparation (FP) AS cars, the maximum compression ratio is 10.3, so in this example, this rule does not apply to FP
AS cars.В Restricted Preparation (RP) AS cars have their compression ratio specified in their FSM, so for this example, the rule
does apply to RP AS cars.
The rule does not apply to horsepower and torque, as AS rules allow for modifications for both FP and RP cars that will change
horsepower and torque.
For any potential modification, the competitor is responsible for determining if this rule applies to their car and the potential
modification.
The rule also states that “The SCCA strongly encourages the measurement of performance specifications after engine
assembly and the adjustment to compliance, if needed, through the use of items listed in 9.1.6.D.1.k.2.a”. In the example of
compression ratio, 9.1.6.D.1.k.2.a. allows for the use of aftermarket parts that would accomplish the adjustment to compliance.

3. #15748 (Brad McCall) Reference Letter #14879
Thank you for your letter. STL has a limit on camshaft lift of .425”. This limits airflow, and thus the potential performance of all
engines in the class.
The CRB understands your concerns about having to “de-cam” your stock Toyota engine to meet this regulation and
understands how this will require financial investment.В However, note there are several other engines in the class that have to
de-cam, the Honda K20Z3 (�07-’10 Civic Si) and the Honda B15C5 (Acura Type R) are two examples.
Also note it wasВ becauseВ of the class cam limit that the CRB allowed your Toyota 2ZZ engine to run a compression ratio of
11.5:1, a 1/2-point higher than the class limit, since the CRB recognizes that airflow limits maximum horsepower.
If the camshaft lift changes in the future, the CRB can address the Toyota 2ZZ engine.

1. #15119 (Ron Leiferman) Alternate Rods for All Level 2 Production Cars
Thank you for your request.В Change 9.1.5.E.2.h.2.: 2. Stock connecting rods are required, but can be lightened and balanced.В Alternate ferrous connecting rods, of the same crank pin center to piston pin center dimension and crankВ pin andВ piston pin bore
dimensions as stock, are permitted.
After extended review and discussion,В the CRB has determined that, based on a comparison ofВ the current prices for race quality
aftermarket connecting rodsВ and the cost of preparing stock rods and periodically reconditioning them, this change will decrease
the costs related to Production car racing.В ThisВ is to the advantage of all competitors.В Additionally, the added reliability of race
quality aftermarket rods is a material advantage to Production car racers.В The CRB understands that this change may allow
some cars to be more competitive.В It is not possible to judge this in advance and make adjustments now.В The CRB is committed
to monitoring of the results of competition to make appropriate adjustments to particular cars if needed in the future.В The results
of member input on this question (considering both the initial group of letters and letters received as a consequence of the
request for member input, but without counting multiple letters from the same writer) are 67 letters. 50 in favor of aftermarket
rods for all cars, 4 for aftermarket rods only for certain cars, and 13 opposing aftermarket rods.В Thus the votes for aftermarket
rod in all or some cases exceeded 80%.
SM
1. #15116 (David Cox) SM Cylinder Head (Runoffs Protests)
The CRB wishes to thank the hundreds of SM drivers and owners who have commented on this difficult situation. В The CRB
has been working closely with the SM Group to identify all of the issues that came up as a result of the Runoffs compliance
actions. В The CRB has determined that the best course is to use the regular system to work through this problem. В The CRB instructed the SMAC to discuss the issues and prepare a recommendation for the CRB. В In turn, the CRB is
recommending (to the BoD) a slight change in the SM rules for 2015. В The SM Group (including Mazda, SCCA and NASA) is
currently contracting for dyno testing of various head configurations. В When that testing is complete, and in conjunction with the
SM Group, a letter will be submitted to the CRB system for consideration by the SMAC and the CRB. В This may include changes
in weights or restrictor plates, but it may also include a recommendation that no changes be made. В No recommendations will be
SCCA Fastrack News
January 2015
Page 33
made to the BoD until the data is complete. В The SM Group and the CRB are also monitoring the availability of cylinder heads
and the effect that will have on possible future rule changes.
At this time we are also recommending, to the BoD, that the SM compliance fee, in a form to be determined, be reinstated and
that the SM Group’s request be implemented for a traveling Tech squad to be deployed during the 2015 season at SCCA and
NASA events to be determined. В This Tech squad should be totally SM savvy. В We are reviewing a possible re-write of portions
of the GCR that would give this Tech squad additional powers to levy penalties that are not currently allowed in the GCR.В The CRB recommends clarifying the existing rules by adding further definition and measurable specifications for the
plunge cut dimensions and orientation.
The specific CRB recommendation to the BoD is as follows:
Change GCR 9.1.7.C.1.f.3: 3. The throat area of the port consists of the 90 degree angle at the very bottom of the cast steel
valve seat as it transitions to the aluminum casting below. It is permitted to plunge cut the throats in order to correct for core shift
that is commonly found in many cylinder heads. The cut must be cylindrical and concentric to the valve guide axial centerline,
within a tolerance of .005”, for the entire length of the cut. The radius tangent to the cylindrical and bottom surfaces shall not
exceed 0.375”. This cut cannot extend further than the specified number below from the bottom of the ferrous valve seat. There
can be no tooling or machine marks in the head below this point. The area under the seat where the plunge cut ends and the
casting resumes cannot be blended by hand, machined, or chemically processed to create a smooth transition. The Intersection
of the machined surface of the plunge cut to the port casting shall not be altered, except that the area under the short turn radius
may be de-burred, with the de-burring not to exceed 1.5 mm in width.В В The 90 degree bend at the bottom of the valve seat and the
aluminum directly below it will be measured with a gauge and must conform to the maximum diameters and depths listed below.
2. #15634 (Michael Babcock) Camber for SM
Thank you for your request.В Add 9.1.7.C.3.p: p.В Inner bushing(s) on the front upper control arms may be replaced with offset
bushings.

1. #15206 (Club Racing Board) Rotor Size
Change 9.1.4.2.E.2.: 2. Rotors - Any 1- or 2-piece ferrous rotors that do not exceedВ 290mmВ 300mmВ in diameter and 28mm in
thickness are permitted.
T1
1. #13510 (Amir Haleem) Change Specification Line for Mazda RX7 20B
In T1, Mazda RX-7 20B, add the engine notes as follows: 20b peripheral port allowed at 2850.В Turbo chargers are not allowed.

1. #15846 (Formula/Sports Racing Committee) FB engine restrictors
Note: The CRB reviewed letter 15846 on the FB restrictor along with other available material. The decision has been made to
retain the wording for the rule change approved in June 2014, letter 14003, and to include corrections from letter 15846. At this
time no restrictor sizes will be specified however the table will be retained for future implementation. The CRB appreciates the
considerable work that has taken place evaluating the methods to cap the HP in FB however without on track data and having
considered input from the class stake holders moving forward with restrictors at this time is not the correct path. With help from
the FB community it is anticipated that data will be available for decisions concerning engine performance as may be necessary
in the future.
In Section 9.1.1.G.4.C, change the language as follows:
“The stock or factory racing ECU shall be used. The ECU fuel and ignition maps may be changed. Devices that modify inputs to
the ECU (e.g., Power Commander) may be used. Stand-alone aftermarket ECUs are not permitted.”
In Section 9.1.1.G.4.E, change the language as follows:
“Carburetion and fuel injection are unrestricted, with the exception that the stock throttle bodies for a fuel injected engine must
be used. Throttle plates, shafts and other mechanisms may be removed, substituted and/or disconnected. All holes or passages
resulting from the removal of any components must be plugged. No other material may be added or removed from the stock
throttle body bores through which any air for engine combustion processes flows.”
In Section 9.1.1.G.5, change the language as follows:
“The air inlet system is unrestricted at this time. However, the CRB may require the use of an inlet restrictor at any time by
publishing the requirements in Fastrack. Flat plate Individual Inlet Restrictors (IIRs) (FPIR) shall be used on all engines as
indicated in Formula B Restrictor Table below. The restrictors shall conform to the definition within Appendix F of the GCR. All
restrictors shall be installed within 4 inches of the primary throttle shaft on the upper inlet side of the throttle body. There shall
be one IIR per cylinder. Restrictors may be mounted in any manner that does not reduce the intended effectiveness. All air for
engine combustion processes shall flow through the restrictors.”
В Proposed changes to the specified restrictor sizes must be accompanied by engine dynamometer data.

2. #15135 (David Arken) P2 Spec Line Cars
In Section 9.1.8.1.M, change the language as follows:
“The intent of Table 1 is to accommodate existing cars previously homologated as DSR or CSR and not requiring expensive
changes to make them compliant with the P2 rules. A car prepared in excess of the P2 allowances, but raced prior to 2014
may continue to use non P2 compliant components not listed in the spec lines (e.g. wings not listed in the spec line), but
further development to spec line columns (e.g. Wheelbase/Track and Notes) must be compliant with the P2 rules”
“For individual cars included in any of the spec lines in Table 1; any deviation from spec line requirements, further
development, requires the car to be made compliant to all current P2 requirements with a notation in the front of the logbook
noting the requirement for the car to be compliant with all P2 rules. For example, should the spec line allow a different
minimum width, and the car were to be changed to meet the P2 minimum width, then the minimum weight would also have to
be increased, along with any other non-compliant components to make the car fully P2 compliant.”
3. #15254 (Eric O’Brien) Spec Line Car Engine Requirements
In P2, table 1 (spec line cars), spec lines A and B, add the engine notes as follows:
Yamaha 2002 and older w/ carbs not restricted.
4. #15295 (David Arken) Kawasaki 2004/5 Restrictor
In P2 engine table, Spec line B, change the Restrictor as follows:

Modified 38.5mm / 38.5mm 40.5mm / 40.5mm
In P2 Spec Line Cars, Spec Line A, change the engine notes as follows:
37mm / 38mm 39mm / 40mm
In P2 Spec Line Cars, Spec Line B, change the engine notes as follows:
36.5mm / 37mm 38.5mm / 39mm
5. #15921 (Club Racing Board ) Errors and Omissions P2 Auto Flywheel

“Cars shall have two (2) red brake lights per GCR Section 9.3.32 with fifteen (15) watt (minimum) bulbs. Engine
breathers shall be equipped with oil catch tanks per GCR Section 9.3.38. Minimum catch tank capacity shall be

RALLYCROSS BOARD
RALLYCROSS BOARD MINUTES | December 3, 2014
The RallyCross Board (RXB) met via conference call on December 3. Attending were Stephen Hyatt, Chairman, Brent Blakely,
Karl Sealander, Ron Foley and Keith Lightfoot. Also in attendance were Brian McCarthy and Tere Pulliam, BOD liaisons, and
Howard Duncan and Brian Harmer from the National office.
The Secretary acknowledges that these minutes may not be in chronological order.
Committee Reports
•
RallyCross Safety Committee (Ron Foley): Foley reported that no incident reports had been submitted or reviewed by the
Safety Committee during the past month.
•
RallySprint Committee (Brent Blakely): Blakely distributed and requested feedback on samples of a tech sheet, a sanction
and insurance application, and roll cage requirements for RallySprints. The rules will need to be completed in order to get
Risk Management approval and to determine event sanction and insurance fees. Hyatt requested that the National Office
create a separate RallySprint heading in the forums. A separate Facebook page was also requested once events are
underway.
•
Divisional RallyCross Steward Liaison (Ron Foley): Foley replaced Hyatt as RXB liaison for the November Divisional
RallyCross Steward call. Foley requested that the Stewards consider and submit nominations for the annual RallyCross
awards. He also requested that the Stewards begin working on their 2015 schedules, especially National Challenge dates.
Old Business
•
Modified category preparation allowances (Keith Lightfoot): Lightfoot is progressing on a draft to clarify what aspects of a
vehicle must remain intact in the Modified Categories to be considered a production-based vehicle. The draft is forthcoming
and will be distributed to the RXB for approval prior to being released as a competitor bulletin.
New Business
•
RXB changes: The RXB wishes to thank Warren Elliott for his years of service and contributions to the RXB and the sport
of RallyCross.
Motion: Recommend for BOD approval Chris Regan of the New England Region as a member of the RXB. Hyatt/Foley.
PASSED 5-0-1. Elliott absent.
•
National Championship Committee: The RXB received several requests from volunteers to be on the National Championship
Committee for 2015. Hyatt requested that the RXB review each of the volunteers and be prepared to recommend four to
be on the Committee. Hyatt will serve as the RXB liaison to the Committee. The first task for the Committee is to finalize
the 2015 Supplemental Regulations. The next major task will be to plan the 2015 RallyCross National Championship by
referring to the recent survey results and forum comments to create a new and better format for an improved event.
•
National Convention: Howard Duncan summarized the changes to the National Convention format. The RXB discussed the
options and concluded that Hyatt and Foley would represent the RXB at the 2015 National Convention. An RXB strategic
planning session will occur at another time and place.
•
Annual RallyCross awards: In an executive session the RXB discussed and voted on the following RallyCross awards to
be announced and presented at the recipients’ respective 2015 Divisional Conventions: Region of the Year, Division of the
Year and Spark Plug. The Dirty Cup award, which will be announced and presented at the 2015 National Convention, will
be voted on at the next RXB meeting.
•
2015 RallyCross National Championship (RXNC) site search: Howard Duncan reported on the progress of the 2015 RXNC
site search. The search has been narrowed to two viable sites. Further information concerning both sites continues to be
gathered and evaluated. Once a decision is made and a contract is secured, a public announcement of the location and
date will be released.
•
RallyCross goals for 2015: Hyatt requested that each RXB member submit two or three goals and future plans to focus on
for 2015. He would like to incorporate these goals as part of the RallyCross Strategic Plan.Next meeting: January 7, 2014

Deena Rowland from the National Office; absent: Sasha Lanz, Len Picton, BOD liaison Peter Zekert.

2. RReNewsletter
A really good newsletter issue this past month. Please continue to support Cheryl’s efforts by submitting
articles, meeting her deadline wherever possible. Rich likes the variety of editors and contributions;
Cheryl is hoping to have monthly issues in 2015
3. 2015 Convention
You all should have seen Howard’s note regarding the 2015 SCCA Convention, the refocusing and
shortening of the agenda. The RRB will not be attending the convention as a group, though the SCCA
will support a separate face-to-face RRB meeting. Howard suggested meeting in conjunction with a
Divisional convention. Clarence has been invited to the Rocky Mountain Division convention in January.
Should we all meet in Denver in conjunction with the RMD convention the weekend of January 25?
Denver features inexpensive air fares and a central-ish location. The focus will be on strategic planning
– what to work on, what not to work on, set boundaries on what we will or will not do. Clarence will get
info about the schedule.
4. Change of day for RRB conference calls
We need to find a day and time that works for the 2015 RRB; please forward times you may be
available/unavailable to Rich; need to check with new member(s) also
5. 2013 Awards, Chuck
The 2013 awards should have been distributed in late November; done; see 1.f above.
6. 2014 Points status
Chuck released 2014 points for all series over the Thanksgiving weekend; continuing to work on them;
see 1.d above.
7.
POR sanction policy
Chuck has raised the question of whether Detroit’s Press on Regardless event should be treated as
one or two events. The event is two days, 500+ miles, 25+ controls/day. They get one sanction for the
SCCA Fastrack News
January 2015
Page 55
event but allow entries for a single day and report results separately for each day for National points
purposes. Rich said that his feeling is given the unique nature of the event, its history, and its length,
the current process we are following is appropriate. POR recent history as been single sanction for
two events; Deena has been giving is a single sanction, but the committee was recently been offering
separate rallies; Rich said to have them submit one set of results for national points per sanction, let
their committee decide which rally, or pay another sanction fee for two sets of results. Jeanne said
there should be one set of results per sanction number. Does this interpretation mean that combined
events like Indy or SJR have to have two sanction numbers? Jeanne says no because the events are
on the same day. Clarence says that the problem is really with the $100 minimum (see item 14) and
that combination events really should have separate sanctions for each part of the event.
8. Gervais and Tour Rally of the Year Voting
Chuck has sent a list of eligible voters to Bruce Gezon who will send out the form letter and ballot;
ballots will be returned to Deena, and she and Rich will tabulate them. Results will be held in
confidence until the Divisional Convention, where the awards will be made. More on this in January.
9. 2015 Rules Changes / RRRs (Chuck)
Chuck has started on updating the 2015 RRR’s pending BOD approval of the submitted rules changes;
Bruce will be sending the updated Lifetime Points for inclusion, and as soon as the points become final,
the Champions will be included and the document should be final.
10. NEC Report (Chuck)
No meeting in Dec; they have received generals for the SJR March national, Clyde will be liaison.

Audit Form / Sanction Fees (Sasha)
Deena will check with Howard about setting eliminating the minimum sanction fee. The audit
form
Sasha sent still includes the $100 minimum for Nationals, but he agrees that it should be
deleted,
Clarence agrees. Motion: eliminate $100 minimum sanction fee for nationals, change to a per
car
basis. Chuck/Clarence/Pass
15. New Business / Open Forum
a) see Executive Session
b) Clarence postponed Yucatan because he is finding that the youth demographic is not available on
Saturday mornings
c) Deena – “there are changes being made” in the office, everything going on-line, no more spreadsheets
that she has been using for her calendar, more info to come.
d) Clarence has a concern about running combined regional/national events on the same day using the

From: The SCCA Road Rally Board
Subject: The Need for Accuracy
Ours is a motorsport focused on accuracy and precision. The state of road rally competition, especially at the highest levels, is
intense. The winning score on a National SCCA Tour event or in Regions such as Detroit is small, often averaging less that 0.005
minute per leg. Margins of victory are also small, often just a single point; ties are not uncommon.
We have reached a state in these events where competitors are as equally armed in their ability to measure mileage and
determine the time of day as the organizers. In order to make these events as fair as possible and to minimize the extent to
which “rally luck” influences the outcomes, the SCCA Road Rally Board asks organizers of these events to redouble their efforts
in the following areas:
Checkpoint Clock Setting [RoadRally Rulebook (RRR) Article 16 I (Official Time)]: The official clock should be set to WWV or
CHU time adjusted to the local time zone. The signal should be acquired via short wave radio.
Mileage Measurement [RRR Article 17 (Official Mileages)]: The route should be measured and calculated with a pulse counting,
digital odometer to the 0.01 mile. A tire warm up and odometer length of sufficient length should be included in the route.
Leg Time Computation [RRR Article 18 D (Standard Computation)]: Ideal legs times should be computed as specified in this
article.
Checkpoint Operation: The process for determining the competitor’s in time should be consistent throughout the event. Ideally,
an “automatic” timing line (such as an air hoses attached to a TimeWise clock) should be used. Alternatively, a worker stationed
AT the in line with the clock & walkie-talkie, the use of a precise reference such as a line or string across the road, or the
employment of “mirror boxes” should be considered.
Your renewed attention to these details is appreciated.
