SCCA Reorganizing Two Racing Classes


TOPEKA, Kan. – Sports Car Club of America’s Board of Directors approved a proposal to reorganize its Club Racing Touring and Showroom Stock classes for 2013.

First proposed in 2011, with a final revision submitted by the Club Racing Board Oct. 9, the proposal takes the cars competing in six classes – Touring 1-3, Showroom Stock B and C and Super Touring Over and arranges them into five new classes – Touring 1-4 and B-Spec.

“This reorganization has been a thorough process that has taken more than one year to develop and has included an incredible amount of work by the Club Racing Board and its sub-committee, as well as copious amounts of input from the Touring and Showroom Stock racing community,” SCCA Vice-Chair Lisa Noble said. “This reorganization, including the splitting of B-Spec out into its own class, will provide a solid platform for these classes to flourish for many years.”
