Default Mazda Club Racer Shootout Scoreboard

The finalists have been chosen. Of the 18 semi-finalists, there were 7 with a NASA background & 5 from SCCA racing. NASA went 0 for 7, SCCA 5 for 5.

I suspect there is a message here.

Cool. I can be banned for reporting facts.

If a driver has aspirations, it is important to understand how to get attention and build a resume. If you are just out there having fun like most of us, it doesn't matter who you race with.

No, he's saying there is a bias for SCCA or against NASA. Or... SCCA drivers are better?

Got a link? This is all I could find (semi-finalist announcement):

Mazda MX-5Cup.com

Adam Poland was my instructor last weekend. Really nice guy and AWESOME driver (he drove my car for a session . . . SSSMMOOOOTTHHHH!!!). I sure hope he's a finalist.

Adam's building himself a turbo Miata too.

Nobody 'went' anything yet. The finalists won't be announced until next week. Unless you have inside information, which is possible I suppose. Not very nice to be spouting such info before the official press release, if that is the case.

^^ Very true at times.

I overheard the five SCCA drivers called finalists. The list of 18 is referred to as the semi-finalists. Maybe someone used the wrong term, which I am beginning to suspect as there have not been any formal announcements.

When changing a shift **** is considered a performance mod, it's stupid. Most of the racers are HIV+ as well.

That rule was changed a few years ago I believe (but yes, it was stupid before).

I MUCH rather drive 3hrs to RA for a NASA or NOLA event than any SCCA event at Barbers (40min) - maybe I should show up once just to **** them off...

Don't get me wrong, the SCCA is extremely flawed, but in my experience, the competition level at the championship events of the respective organizations are lightyears different. The NASA Nationals just can't hold a flag to the Runoffs. I think that's the whole point of this thread. If you were really hoping to climb the Mazdaspeed ladder, you'd be better off going through the SCCA.

Also, if the only experince you've ever had with the SCCA is "Regional Racing" then yea, I could see where some of you guys are coming from. SCCA regional racing is a joke for the most part. There are some localized Regional Series (SARRC for instance) that have decent car fields, cars, and drivers, but for the most part if you go to your average low car count SCCA Regional Race, it's not very impressive. You'd have to go to one of the big "Majors" races to get a feel for top level SCCA Club racing.

All sports car racing is pretty much a shadow of what it once was. It was routine to have 250 entries at an Oregon Region regional in the 80's and 90's. The first year I had my S2, I drove my *** off (after setting a couple of lap records in my first class) to fight for 4th place. There was no drop-off at the front of the field between nationals and regionals. In a bad economy, all of the clubs struggle.
