SCCA Club Racing Department Announces Revised Licensing Program

TOPEKA, Kan (Nov. 10, 2004) - Sports Car Club of America’s Club Racing Dept. has announced several changes to its licensing program that include pricing changes, new General Competition Rules mailing procedures and online viewing of the GCR.

Starting Jan. 1, 2005, the annual license fee for National and Regional Competition Licenses will be $75.  The price Increase from $55 includes all previous benefits of competing in SCCA Club Racing events plus a complimentary copy of the latest edition of the GCR.

Scheduled to be released in January, the 2005 rulebook will be automatically mailed to all licensed competitors on record, including novice, whose permits will be $110 for a two-year term.

Also beginning in January, SCCA’s official Web site,, will be the new home of the GCR, replacing the compact disc version that had been distributed previously.  Each section of the GCR will be listed as a separate file, so competitors can download only the sections they want.

As with the electronic file on the CD in previous years, the online version will not be considered an official document, but rather a reference.  The hard copy of the GCR remains the official document.

To reach the SCCA Club Racing Department, call 800-755-2055 or send a fax to 785-232-7214.

For Immediate Release


TOPEKA, Kan. (Nov. 16, 2004) - In an effort to better serve its current and potential members, Sports Car Club of America has confirmed that the 2005 rule books for Club Racing, Solo and Rally will appear online through in 2005.

“This is something our members have asked for over the last couple of years, and we’re glad to announce that everyone will have easy access to our rules beginning with the 2005 season,” SCCA Vice President of Program Development Howard Duncan said.

Previously available in electronic form only on an accompanying CD, the Club Racing General Competition Rules (GCR) and category specifications was well as the entire National Solo and RoadRally books will appear in Adobe Portable Document Format (.pdf) online.  Previously, only the SCCA Performance Rally and SCCA Pro Racing rules have appeared online.

“Publishing the Club Racing, Rally and Solo books online required an adjustment to some of our policies to remain consistent with our departmental revenue structures,” Duncan added.  “All licensed Club Racing drivers will now automatically receive a current GCR each year as part of their license package, and at a $5 overall discount from previous years.  In Solo, the requirement still exists to have a copy of the current rules in your possession at a National or Divisional event.”

As with the electronic file on the CD in previous years, the online version will not be considered an official document, but rather a reference.  The hard copy of all rule books remains the official document.

Electronic versions of all of SCCA’s rulebooks will begin appearing on in mid-December, with all books available in .pdf format by January 1, 2005.
