Temporary SCCA Medical Requirement Change
This is for RENEWALS ONLY whose license and medical have not lapsed for more than 6 months. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the suspension of non-urgent healthcare visits at this time, the requirement for a physician approved SCCA medical form has been temporarily waived. If you have not experienced any significant change in your health and fitness, please complete a new Applicant’s Medical History Form. Download the form and submit it as you would your SCCA Medical Form. This will extend the current medical on file for your renewal period. Once your healthcare provider resumes normal physical exam appointments, please complete and submit a signed SCCA medical form and we will update your record accordingly. Currently, this waiver applies to license renewals only with an expiration date of on or before March 31, 2021.
For new competition license applications, a full and complete physical (signed by a physician is required).
Runoffs Qualification Criteria Set for 2021
The Sports Car Club of America Board of Directors has approved qualifying criteria for drivers wishing to compete at the 2021 SCCA National Championship Runoffs next Sept. 25-Oct. 3 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. With some slight modifications, the criteria are similar to what was used for the 2019 Runoffs. And the 26 car classes slated to compete in 2021 are the same as last year at Road America.
In 2021, Runoffs qualification can be achieved through the U.S. Majors Tour or Hoosier Super Tour programs where drivers must participate in a minimum of three separate event weekends and finish a minimum of three individual races in the same class. Participation is defined as turning a wheel on track in an official session (practice, qualifying, warm-up, race) and appearing in an event’s official race results. A finish is defined as completing at least half the laps of the overall race winner. Racers may again substitute one U.S. Majors weekend in 2021 with participation in two SCCA Regional event weekends. However, drivers must still finish a minimum of three individual U.S. Majors races in the same class even with this substitution option.
A Divisional Championship path to the Runoffs remains an option in 2021. Using this path, racers must first participate in the same class for a minimum of four weekends within a single Divisional Championship. Also, Divisional competitors must finish in the top three positions within that class’ divisional point standings, except for Spec Miata and Spec Racer Ford Gen3 where the top five will be invited to the Runoffs. And of course, defending national champions may enter the Runoffs in the class or classes being defended, without meeting any of the previously noted criteria. But this provision may not be invoked two consecutive years in the same class by an individual even if he/she repeats as national champion.
The Southwest Division of the Sports Car Club of America (known as “Area 7”) is made up of 9 separate SCCA regions in the Southwestern part of the U.S. Our purpose is to provide an information source for members of all the regions contained herein, with special attention being paid to the volunteer Club Racing Officials, whom we could not conduct Club Racing events without.
Racers from all over the state of Texas and Louisiana come together for Club Racing events and many regional autocrossers cross-pollinate to other regions outside there own. We hope to foster this behavior and increase the opportunities to members and regions of this division.
