Spec Miata / 2019 SM tire order
« Last post by SteveB on March 03, 2019, 09:18:42 PM »
Hello Everyone,
 I will be providing Gee & Gee Racing with our tire requirements for this season, around the end of March. As you all may know, Hoosier Tire has renewed their contract with the SCCA for three years and the class will remain on SM7's for the 2019 season. I'll follow this notice up soon with a group e-mail to make sure we get everyone, but feel free to contact me by e-mail in the meantime with your tire order, please reference "SM Tires" in the subject line.
Thanks,
Steve Begg

Race Discussion Board / Draft of updated Sporting Regulations
« Last post by Spec Volcanic on February 15, 2019, 10:01:59 AM »
Hello Competitors,
Attached is a draft of the updated sporting regulations to accommodate the changes required to make improvements to licensing and on track conduct discussed as at the 2018 Race workshop.

Please let follow competitors know as we are all an important part of communication out these changes.

Updated sections to review include (major changes are in green)

Section 2 DRIVER Minimum Requirements and 3 COMPETITION LICENSING ( which replace Section 2 DRIVER COMPETITION LICENSING)
 These updates were based on a general agreement of these needs at the race workshop
  Easy access for future WCMA.ca Endurance Championship events
  Alternate access for people who “missed” the school (and have a race car)
  Clarity on Basic License requirements – Ice Racing / Time attack / other
  Alternate methods for confirming competency
  Overall the license section of the regs should be updated to have a more logical flow while making the other changes

Section 5.3 Sportsmanship (addition)
Updated to support on track conduct discussion

Section 5.4 Impairment (updated for cannabis)
Updated due to changes in federal law

Sections 11.3 Competitor conduct on the race track and 11.5 passing on the race track have been updated and section 11.4 Competitor conduct on the race track for vintage and Appendix b have been added
 These updates were based on a general agreement of these needs at the race workshop
  that more clarity is needed around incidents and who is at fault
  Attached samples examples were well received.
  Members agreed and disagree whether specific examples and if they align with current rules
  Reinforcing that more clarity is needed
  that racing room should be given even when not required
  Some concern that current rules as written/enforced limit “being passed” drivers responsibility to much
  The car being passed should also be more responsible for a safe pass

Please feel free to email any comments or concerns you may have to racedirector@wcma.ca before March 8, as I will be working to have the draft finalized before the end of March.

I will note that I will be travelling over the next 10 day and will have limited access to email and may not reply until after my return.

Best regards.

Race Discussion Board / Re: Overlapping Race Weekends in July
« Last post by Spec Volcanic on February 15, 2019, 09:54:06 AM »
Hello.

It appears we have two race weekends on the same dates in July.  One for the Runoffs (Gimli) and second with a newly announced one day enduro at Castrol.  Will not this overlapping weekends potentially hurt the attendance of both?

I am asking this because I am being selfish.  I want to attend both.  Has there been any negotiations between WSCC and NASCC regarding a possible shift of race weekends?

I'm just curious...

The NASCC will be announcing a new date

Don't you mean SCCA? We adopt 100% SCCA rules for SM? Well except for their tire rules?

We have always used followed the SCCA rules for Spec Miata, like in the SCCA tires for regional events are set by the region.
the SMAC will advise on tires as the more info SM8 v SM7 availability and pricing comes out.

For ST the NASA rules changes are being implemented

What I meant
 was we use updates from SM, and updates from NASA.
